See Mondo’s Inside Out 7” Record Series & Prints

There are many exclusive pleasures to be had while attending San Diego Comic Con (July 21–24)–you get to see never-before-revealed footage from upcoming films and are allowed access to new details about your favorite comic books. You attend panels full of creative luminaries that give you a peek at the process behind your favorite pop culture. And you get to see lots of people rocking truly mind-boggling cosplay costumes (seriously–the most creative person in all of Comic Con might be the guy who fashioned a remarkably intricate Baymax costume all by himself). Another huge highlight: the shopping.

There are tons of exclusives that can be found on the convention floor during San Diego Comic Con. And one of the premiere shopping destinations at San Diego Comic Con is the Mondo booth (#835). Mondo, is, of course, one of the premier providers of pop culture-inspired coolness. They started out doing limited edition prints for cult favorite movies, and have since moved into apparel, toys, and vinyl records.

This year at San Diego Comic Con, they’re debuting a series of Inside Out 7” vinyl records, containing segments of Michael Giacchino’s score. Each record will have the main theme (“Bundle of Joy”) and an additional track from Giacchino’s flawless score for the Disney•Pixar classic, as well as exclusive artwork from Phantom City Creative that plays off a classic album cover (including: Isaac Hayes’ Joy, Hole’s Live Through This, Joni Mitchell’s Blue, and the Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream). Also, each album will have an exclusive colorway that goes along with whatever character it’s associated with. These are beautiful. They’re also funny and clever and totally brilliant. Just like the movie. We love them so, so much.

Cars 3 Images & Details Revealed By Disney Pixar

1

Disney Pixar has revealed the first details of Cars 3. Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) “will need help to compete in the increasingly high-tech racing world of the upcoming Cars 3. That’s where the new trainer comes in — the sleek, yellow Cruz Ramirez is a young Hispanic female race car who instructs Lightning McQueen, as this exclusive concept art depicts during a beach run.” The preparation is for the Florida 500, which is like the Daytona 500.

“Cruz Ramirez is trying to figure out how this old dog can learn some new tricks,” says Cars 3 director Brian Fee. “Think of where he’d be in his career now in real time. (McQueen) is not an old man, but he’s one of the older cars on the circuit with new rookies coming in. People start to wonder and ask when he might retire.”

Fee adds that those questions grow louder after newcomer Jackson Storm beats him. “Jackson Storm is the face of these rookies who have come onto the scene. And McQueen is in a position where his entire racing generation is being pushed out. But it’s too early to be shown the door right now.”

Also back for the third installment are Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt) and Ramone (Cheech Marin).

Directed by John Lasseter, the first Cars earned $461.9 million worldwide in 2006 and Cars 2 topped that with $559.8 million globally in 2011.

Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory Reveals Full Character & Voice Talent Roster

419385-finding-dory-screenshot

Disney Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reveals its full roster of characters, as well as the voice talent tapped to help bring each character to life. Directed by Andrew Stanton, who helmed the Oscar-winning films “Finding Nemo” and “WALL-E,” “Finding Dory” revisits everyone’s favorite blue tang Dory as she embarks on a life-changing adventure to find her family.

“It really is a whole new chapter this time,” said Stanton. “We’re introducing new characters—each with his or her own unique voice. Everyone has something special to offer, which makes it fun and elevates the whole story. ‘Finding Nemo’ was a great calling card when it came to casting this movie. I don’t take that for granted.”

“Finding Dory,” which opens in theaters nationwide on June 17, 2016, features the following lineup.

FINDING DORY

Ellen DeGeneres returns to the sea as Dory, the bright blue tang with a sunny personality. She suffers from short-term memory loss, which normally doesn’t upset her upbeat attitude—until she realizes she’s forgotten something big: her family. Dory’s found a new family in Marlin and Nemo, but she’s haunted by the belief that someone out there is looking for her. She may have trouble recalling exactly what—or who—she’s searching for, but she won’t give up until she uncovers her past and discovers something else along the way: self-acceptance.

FINDING DORY

Albert Brooks dives in again to help bring Marlin to life. He may have traveled across the ocean once, but that doesn’t mean Marlin wants to do it again. So he doesn’t exactly jump at the opportunity to accompany Dory on a mission to the California coast to track down her family. Marlin, of course, knows how it feels to lose family, and it was Dory who helped him find Nemo not so long ago. The clownfish may not be funny, but he’s loyal—he realizes he has no choice but to pack up his nervous energy and skepticism and embark on yet another adventure, this time to help his friend.

Hayden Rolence was called on to voice Nemo. One year after his big overseas adventure,Nemo is back to being a normal kid: going to school and living on the coral reef with his dad and their blue tang neighbor, Dory. His harrowing adventure abroad doesn’t seem to have sapped his spirit. In fact, when Dory remembers pieces of her past and longs to take off on an ambitious ocean trek to find her family, Nemo is the first to offer his help. He may be a young clownfish with a lucky fin, but Nemo wholeheartedly believes in Dory. After all, he understands what it’s like to be different.

FINDING DORY

Ed O’Neill lends his iconic voice to Hank, whois an octopus. Actually, he’s a “septopus”: he lost a tentacle—along with his sense of humor—somewhere along the way. But Hank is just as competent as his eight-armed peers. An accomplished escape artist with camouflaging capabilities to boot, Hank is the first to greet Dory when she finds herself in the Marine Life Institute. But make no mistake: he’s not looking for a friend. Hank is after one thing—a ticket on a transport truck to a cozy Cleveland facility where he’ll be able to enjoy a peaceful life of solitude.

FINDING DORY

Kaitlin Olson provides the voice of a whale shark named Destiny, who is a clumsy swimmer with a big heart. Destiny has a big everything, actually—whale sharks are the biggest fish in the sea. Destiny resides in the Marine Life Institute, where one day an oddly familiar blue tang named Dory falls into her pool. Destiny is admittedly embarrassed by her obvious lack of grace, a product of poor eyesight, but Dory thinks she swims beautifully. And Dory is delighted to learn that her supersized friend speaks whale, too.

FINDING DORY

Ty Burrell was tapped to give voice to Bailey, the Marine Life Institute’s resident beluga whale, who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz. The good news—or bad news, depending on who you ask—is that doctors at the MLI can’t seem to find anything wrong with him. Bailey’s flair for the dramatic never ceases to push his neighbor’s buttons: whale shark Destiny can’t seem to get through to him, no matter how hard she tries. Maybe he’ll listen to new friend Dory, who seems to be full of crazy ideas.

FINDING DORY

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy were recruited to voice Dory’s parents. Jenny and Charlie would do anything for their only child. They celebrate and protect Dory, striving to arm her with the skills she’ll need to navigate the world with a faulty memory. Jenny may appear cheerful and a little flighty—but she’s a protective mother and a smart role model. Charlie likes to joke around, but nothing is more important to him than teaching his memory-challenged daughter how to survive.

FINDING DORY

Idris Elba and Dominic West team up as the voices of Fluke and Rudder, a pair of lazy sea lions who were rehabilitated at the Marine Life Institute. Marlin and Nemo find them snoozing on a warm—and highly coveted—rock just outside the center. These sea lions really enjoy their down time and would rather not be bothered mid nap—but their bark is far worse than their bite.

FINDING DORY

Bob Peterson is back as the memorable voice of Mr. Ray, the tune-loving teacher from the reef, who takes Nemo’s education—and that of his fellow undersea students—very seriously. Nobody enjoys Mr. Ray’s class more than Dory, who serves as his cheerful, albeit unnecessary, teacher’s assistant during their illuminating field trips.

FINDING DORY

Torbin Bullock voices Becky, an offbeat, kooky loon who takes a liking to Marlin. Although she inspires little confidence—especially from a certain, skeptical clownfish—Becky might be smarter than she looks.

FINDING DORY

Andrew Stanton and Bennett Dammann lend their voices to the ocean’s coolest turtles Crush and his son Squirt. They’re always happy to lend a flipper to a fish in need. Cruising the ocean for more than a hundred years definitely has its advantages.

Bill Hader and Kate McKinnon make a cameo appearance as a fish couple that Dory briefly encounters along the way.

Finding Dory Trailer

2

Disney Pixar has released the new trailer for the long-awaited sequel Finding Dory, featuring returning stars Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres back in their classic voice roles.

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. 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, Michael Sheen, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.

Walt Disney Pictures will release the animated sequel on June 17.

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.

pb&t_80smonsters_dev1

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.
