Which films did they do that for?

Or Alpha and Omega, though I'm not sure because I haven't seen that. Change the plot and what's left? A completely different story, it seems.


I didn't see A and O either, but that's what it's about. Also Ice Age 2.

I don't know why some of you guys will just accept that Newt is dead. If you want to keep it alive make a fanfic or sig. But I don't see a reason for Pixar to bring it back. We gotta learn that not all their ideas will come through, and Newt is one of them. If another film gets cancalled in the future, we will be more prepared for ir since Newt was pretty much the first one. I did make a topic for Newt to make a theme for it. We could have a cool slogan that we can come up with and it's pictures will be the art. It will be diffrent from the others.

This probably already has been said on this forum, but it's interesting to note we actually have got a nice quantity (a total of more than 30) of newt concept art:

That concept art is incredible, it really makes me wish that the film hadn't been cancelled.

I see where you're coming from. Although I am still sad about the film's cancellation, I look forward to some of Pixar's upcoming projects. Maybe they'll resume Newt development though no one really knows.

I would of rather have Newt then Cars 2. But if it's gone, it's gone. There's nothing we can do about it.

Ed Catmull revealed some shocking new revelations about the cancellation of Newt. One of them is that, shortly before its cancellation, the reigns had been given to Pete and it eventually led to Inside Out happening.
