Pixar Posts Defunct Newt Artwork

Back in February, reports surfaced that Pixar would cease production on “Newt,” a romantic comedy about a pair of endangered amphibians, that was to have been the directorial debut of sound whiz Gary Rydstrom. Rydstrom had previously directed the charming Pixar short “Lifted” (about the alien abduction driver’s ed), which was nominated for an Academy Award.

On Friday afternoon before a long weekend, the Disney – Pixar Facebook page, posted the following:

“As most of you already know,” the post read, “‘Newt’ is no longer in development at Pixar. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t share some of the Pixar’s amazing artwork with our Facebook fans!”
