‘Paperman’ First Images in High Resolution

HEART, IMAGINATION… AND PAPER ©2012 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

The whistle almost blew calling for quitting time, but after what seems like months of teasing, Walt Disney Animation Studios has finally provided us with these hi-res first images from John Kahrs’ revolutionary short, Paperman, which will play before Wreck-It Ralph in theaters beginning November 2, 2012.

Paperman is an innovative short about destiny and the power of second chances.
