Usually when Disney/Pixar announces a project, the film makes its way into theaters a few years later. While films in development at the studio have no doubt been canceled before, Pixar shocked many when it publicly canceled newt in 2010, a film that was to be headed by Lifted director Gary Rydstrom. Pixar acknowledged the cancellation in a creative way, by releasing several pieces of concept art from the film. A former Pixar artist has now shared her own newt pre-production art, which you can take a look at after the break!
Ex-Pixar artist Katy Wu posted a few of her own pieces of newt artwork (via PixarBlog), adding to some of the other artwork we have already seen from the film’s time in development (you can see them here and here). View her gorgeous artwork below:
Each time we see new artwork from the film, it is difficult to not think about how the film may have turned out if it was completed. I am sure, though, that Pixar had significant reasons for canceling it.
What do you think of Katy Wu’s artwork?
