Last year, Pixar made a fascinating choice and released concept art for newt, a film project the studio had been working on for a good while but ultimately decided to cancel. Displayed on the Facebook page for Disney/Pixar, the artwork was a great view behind the doors of the animation company, but also made the public long for more. Well, production artist and character designer Jason Deamer heeded the call and shared 11 more pieces of concept art, which the German Pixar Blog alertly caught.
Check out the images below:
All of the new artwork only makes it more difficult to come to terms with how we will (most likely) never see this on the big screen. However, as we said when the first group of conceptual artwork was released, Pixar had its reasons for shelving the film, and ideas from unrealized projects have a way of making it into future ventures. Hopefully, we will see some of the influence from newt somewhere in Pixar’s future films.
