First Look: Pixar's Short 'Day & Night' Showing This Summer
As is tradition at Pixar, the studio will be debuting a new short film in front of Toy Story 3 this summer from one of their own artists. This year's short is called Day & Night and is the directorial debut of Teddy Newton, a storyboard artist on The Iron Giant and character designer for The Incredibles and Presto, too. ComingSoon has revealed our very first look at the short by way of this interesting advertising banner (seen below). This isn't official confirmed, but both SlashFilm and I think that this may actually be a 2D animated film about these two characters, and it looks quite wonderful, as always. Check out the new first look below!
Here's the official Day & Night plot synopsis: "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." I'm curious if Pixar titled this Night & Day originally and had to change it to Day & Night once Fox retitled their summer Tom Cruise action movie to Knight & Day. Don't get confused - one of them has a "k", the other doesn't. I'm already looking forward to seeing this in front of Toy Story 3 this summer! You?
