Well, Pixar Wiki isn't very...true.

Hmm, somebody might have seen it and posted it onto Pixar Wikia not knowing it was fan-art, unless Flik-E has an account there.

Off topic- Now this is why we need our own version of Pixar wikia. It'll be more reliable.

Btw that is some neat drawing, good enough to fool some as an unfinished Newt work xD

It certainly fooled me, I'll give you that.

I actually do have a Pixar Wiki account and I made a lot of contributions there (it was my idea to add new sections for the Toy Story Treats and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), but it wasn't me that put the Newt drawing there. I feel quite honored that someone would mistake what I felt was a simple quick drawing for an official character design. Like I said in my older post, I just looked at the real concept art on the first page of this topic for inspiration, and also a bit of Randall from Monsters Inc.

Well that's pretty weird. I'm hoping they mistook it for real concept art instead of stealing it and claiming it was an "unfinished character design". It's actually very good and I understand how people would think it's official. I also checked the Newt page again and the artwork seems to be gone.

I do think Pixar Wikia is good, but it could do with some improvements.

I really hope Pixar will release some test footage from Newt. It's a movie I was always extremely curious about. I bet sometime within the next 5 years or so there will be a sort of mini-documentary that goes into deeper discussion about the project and why it ended up scrapped. I'm still sort of miffed it happened anyway.

I just checked. Love them. Makes me even sadder that Newt isn't in development. :(

at first, I really wasn't excited for this film. But now, seeing all that gorgeous concept art really made me sad that this isn't going to be happening any more :( Some of the designs look really cool :D

I don't think that they'd have made any footage by that point. I don't think that they'd put something into full production and then just cancel it. There might be some storyboards though. I don't know if they'd release storyboards though.

The concept art is really good. Looks like it could have been a beautiful film.

Agreed! Don't think we've seen the last of newt. Amphibians adapt. Check back in 5 years...
