Pixar's Day & Night

Our friends from Upcoming Pixar found this awesome little Making Of featurette for Pixar's newest short film Day & Night that's playing in front of Toy Story 3 later this month. We haven't mentioned this short since the first photo arrived in March, but I've seen the short film, and it's great, and you'll all see it too in theaters with Toy Story 3 in a few weeks. It was directed by storyboard artist & character designer Teddy Newton, who you'll see in this video (and who voices the Chatter Telephone in Toy Story 3). It's always so cool to see the creative process behind the films at Pixar, since it's always so magical there. Watch & enjoy!

Watch the Making Of Featurette for the Pixar's Day & Night:

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 saw this when I was at ShoWest to see Toy Story 3 (read my reaction) and it's a very creative and fun little short. Be sure to go see Toy Story 3 starting on June 18th to catch this short playing in front!

It's great to see Pixar doing 2D animation when the story calls for it. I can't wait to see this... Check this out too, so sad and nostalgic... http://i.imgur.com/dUKmd.jpg

You always see something exciting in Pixar short movies and looks like this one is that too. Thanks for the upload of the video. I hope Toy Story becomes this summer's biggest blockbuster I love the franchise a lot . At the end of the day Pixar never produces a bad movie.

Damn...as an artist that brings tears of joy to my heart

Love the sixties' 2D characters integrating the XXI Century 3D. This said, having just re-watched "Bug's life", I wonder if and when they'll do "upgraded" remakes of the first Pixar movies. They're classics and as such do not need improvements, but... business is business for some, right?

This movie is going to get so many stoner photoshops from Kid Cudi fans.

@ 4 : I don't see them remaking these any time soon. In the grand time line that is film, Pixar's films are incredibly young. They shouldn't remake them IMO because some of what makes them dated (i know it's funny, 3D animation = dated?!) also makes them beloved. Take Toy Story's use of textures and hair. Most everything was flat instead of today's 3D animation where a chair will have texture to it. Just added something to the film. @ Topic : I'm thinking that this is a test for something bigger. Usually when Pixar does shorts, they are film testing some aspect of an upcoming film. Can't just rush into a new feature length without testing your theories. Maybe we will be seeing a 2D/3D animated Pixar feature film on the horizon? Would be a nice change of pace for Pixar's regular antics.
