Pixar recently updated its official website to spotlight Cars 2, which is now due for release in just a few short weeks. Many of the details listed have been known for quite some time, but digging through the site, we came across several new pieces of concept art for the film which had not been publicly released before. The pieces are more examples of the beauty that emerges from the creative minds at the studio. We are huge fans of concept art here and think you will soak up these images, as we did. Take a look at the 11 images here but note that the images are not in hi-res.
While it is always tough to call for favorites when comparing concept art that comes out of Pixar, we simply adore the piece where Mater is parachuting through London. The animation studio obviously loves it too, as they have had a huge recreation hanging in the atrium of their Emeryville studio for the past few months. Take a look at the picture (in mucho hi-res) that I took during my press visit in late March:
The best way to view a great bunch of concept art for the Cars sequel will be in “The Art of Cars 2,” which goes on sale in the U.S. on June 22. Meanwhile, Cars 2 hits theaters on June 24!
