Even more upcoming things of Awesomeness

So continuing on with my 'upcoming things of Awesomeness' I've found yet another trailer for a 2011 animated film

Yup that's right, if you havn't already heard Pixar are releasing Cars 2 next year.
While I'm not that excited about it (I'm still mourning the shelving of NEWT) I trust in Pixar to produce a great movie.

Anyways here's the official synopsis:

"Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.

Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors."

Next up, a new clip released from Tangled on one of Disney's youtube acccounts.
It's got some great humour, and some great character animation.

While this last one isn't animation per se, I found it very inpirational.

It's done by Pixar and joins a growing voice of hope for LGBT teens with their own submission to the "It get's better" project.

More upcoming things of Awesomeness

So it appears like Winnie the Pooh is getting a reboot.

"Winnie the Pooh," the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical "bear of very little brain" and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. "Winnie the Pooh" hits theaters July 15, 2011.

Gack! Looks so cute! :]

Something really cool also happened to Glen Kleane. I can't actually read the page (I'm thinking it looks french... maybe?) but there are some lovely artworks by him

Check it out!

The Art of Glen Keane. More amazing Glen Kleane art. Check it too.
