Cyclops Print Works To Release Inside Out Prints By Tom Whalen & Dave Perillo On February 5, 2016

Cyclops Print Works come will release two brand new Inside Out-inspired art prints by Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo on February 5, 2016 at noon (Pacific time).

The first print is a poster from Tom Whalen. The twelve-color print is 24” x 36” and has a hand-numbered run of 330.

The artist shared this about his process:

“I arrived at the final design you see after a longer-than-usual experimentation process. I can usually distill the essence of a film pretty quickly, but Inside Out proved a bit more challenging. I recall watching the film for the first time and enjoying all of the metaphor that was at play between the way the emotions behaved and Riley’s actions. I wanted a little bit of that metaphor to come into play in this poster,” Whalen explained to us. Whalen added: “Overall, this was a project that asked me to dig a bit deeper in order to produce an end result that’s worthy of an incredible film.” What we love the most about this, done in Whalen’s gorgeous, warm graphic style, is how much of the film it actually includes in a single poster: there are the memories, the personality islands, Riley’s old life and new life, all of the emotions. About the only thing missing is Bing Bong (although you can see him in one of the orbs, if you look hard enough) …

… Speaking of Bing Bong, the second print is from Dave Perillo, who brings Riley and Bing Bong’s song to life. Featuring all of the lyrics from the ear worm-y ode to everyone’s favorite imaginary friend, plus stylized renditions of young Riley and Bing Bong, the seven-color print is 10” x 20” and has a hand-numbered run of 250.

Perillo had this to say about his serigraph:

“After seeing Inside Out, Bing Bong was my favorite part of the movie. I found it so interesting exploring what becomes of a child’s imaginary friend as she would get older. I wanted to approach this piece in the style and tone of a children’s book, something that you might see in a vintage Golden Book. The biggest challenge was translating a three-dimensional animated character to work as a flat two dimensional imagery.” Well, Perillo clearly triumphed over that challenge.

Finding Dory Trailer

The first trailer for Disney Pixar‘s long-awaited sequel Finding Dory is now online!

Finding Dory picks up six months after the first movie, with Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) living a quiet life among the clown fishes. After going with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, her home sickness leads the forgetful Dory on a quest to find where she came from.

“The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised,” Pixar President Jim Morris stated previously. “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”

Finding Dory features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life, such as her parents voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.

Findng Nemo helmer Andrew Stanton (John Carter) returns to the directors chair for the animated film, which features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. Walt Disney Pictures will release the film on June 17, 2016.

SWL203101

Disney announced a line-up of new attractions and entertainment coming to its theme parks around the world during the D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim, Calif.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek gave 7,500 lucky fans a behind-the-scenes look at what’s to come.  He was joined by Imagineers working on these projects as well as legendary filmmakers James Cameron and Jon Landau who shared new details about Pandora – The World of Avatar including the names of the land and E-ticket attraction – Avatar Flight of Passage.  Fans also got a chance to see Marvel legend Stan Lee in a cameo appearance where he posed as an unsuspecting fan during Iron Man’s dramatic entrance.

Among the many announcements Chapek shared were new and enhanced Star Wars experiences coming later this year to the Florida and California theme parks, plans for a new Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and more details on Pandora—The World of Avatar, which is already under construction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Chapek also shared that Soarin’ Around the World will make its U.S. film debut at Epcot and Disney California Adventure taking guests to new places around the world.  Additionally, fans got a preview of exclusive video of the first Marvel attraction planned for Disney parks, coming to Hong Kong Disneyland in 2016.

“From Disneyland’s 60th anniversary celebration to the anticipation of Shanghai Disney Resort, we’re in the midst of unprecedented growth and expansion around the globe,” said Chapek. “With these new announcements, we continue our legacy in creating innovative attractions, worldwide entertainment, and magical lands that take our guests into the worlds of stories they love.”

In addition to these announcements, Chapek talked about the exciting news announced earlier in the day by Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger for plans to bring Star Wars-themed lands to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando and Disneyland park in Anaheim.  Each 14-acre land will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet with two signature attractions, including a customized secret mission on the Millennium Falcon and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.
