When you last saw Disney/Pixar’s Brave, did you manage to spot the Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story that’s made its way into most every Pixar film since? How about the hidden character from the next Disney/Pixar film?
Walt Disney Studios (NYSE:DIS) and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with concept art for their upcoming film Monsters University and monsters they are. The original images were so big, we had to downsample them to a miniscule ~10 MP for your enjoyment.
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. Monsters University unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
Disney D23, the official fan club for The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) and Disney Fine Art have announced that they will be holding a special screening of Disney/Pixar’s latest on screen adventure, Brave, at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood in conjunction with a special meet and greet opportunity with artists Victoria Ying of Walt Disney Animation Studios, Daniel Arriaga of Pixar Animation Studios and Jim Salvati who will be presenting new art inspired by the film.
Ahead of its theatrical debut on Friday, attached to Brave, Disney (NYSE:DIS) and Pixar Animation Studios has released four versions of the official teaser trailer for the Monsters, Inc. prequel, Monsters University, in which Mike Wazowski rattles off a different line in each.
A couple of the versions of the teaser trailer is below while you can see all four via the official Monsters University Facebook page here.
In addition, we have been provided with four first images from the film which are in our new gallery below:
Cast, crew and celebrities came out in full force last night in support of Disney/Pixar’s Brave which opens nationwide on Friday, June 22. Even Princess Merida herself, along with trusty steed Angus, stopped by for some photo ops. The premiere, which also marked the grand opening of the Dolby Theater (formerly Kodak) was held as special presentation for Film Independent’s 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival. An additional screening of the film is being offered tonight for LA FilmFest goers.

The clip, titled ‘Brawl,’ overlaps just a bit with the previously released ‘Suitors‘ clip. In the latter clip, we are introduced to Young Macintosh, Young MacGuffin and Wee Dingwall as they are presented to King Fergus and Queen Elinor for consideration of Princess Merida’s hand in marriage. The new clip carries the scene even further with an ensuing brawl that the bear king is forced to put an end to, though a certain set of triplets don’t necessarily seem to agree with that logic.
They did it for Mother’s Day, so it’s only fitting that dads get the royal treatment as well. Disney/Pixar has released a brand new promo for Brave which shares some insight into the strong bonds between Princess Merida and her father, King Fergus. Once again, the film’s track ‘Into the Open Air’ as performed by Julie Fowlis provides the background music for the video.
The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for Brave, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore — stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, Braveis the grand adventure of Merida, a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage.
