It’s pretty hard not to get psyched about everything Pixar does, because it’s always so excellent. ComingSoon got their hands on promotional artwork for a new Pixar short film which is presumably set to bow before this summer’s Toy Story 3. The short is directed by Teddy Newton, a storyboard artist on The Iron Giant and character designer for The Incredibles/Presto. There’s obviously no telling what Pixar could be up to, but man are already speculating that the short will be in traditional 2D animation.
I’m pretty much sold on whatever Pixar wants to do from now until eternity. Their method is best left untouched, because whatever they’re doing is paying off in a major way.
When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! Day and Night are frightened and suspicious of each other at first, and quickly get off on the wrong foot. But as they discover each other’s unique qualities — and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world — the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective.
