I actually like her singing voice,reminds me of Aqua,thought when she talks she sounds old.
The song is very nice :D and Rhino with High School Musical was funny XD.

DisneyShopping now has merchandise! Not much, but at least it's a start. The plushies look a little weired, but I like Bolt.

Three guesses as to which person might have inspired this shirt...

And I'm guessing that the DVD won't touch much upon his involvement either, because I for one would love to see the concpet art done in the earlier incarnations of the story. Particularly back when the character was more of a James Bond type character.

And there was also that fully animated clip released earlier on with the earlier design for Bolt. If only that would be included too!

Dream of a mad-man, surely.

According to the review, it would appear that as expected Sanders' original artwork has been scrubbed out of all existance.

Grr. And Disney even had the gall to say the art was "inspired by the art of Edward Hopper" ... that was Sanders' original idea.

While I understand Disney's need to airbrush controversy aside, that really isn't fair.

They could just as easily put a positive spin on Sanders' work for the film and included even just one or two already seen images or a simply acknowledgment that "early designs were submitted by Lilo & Stitch director Chris Sanders", y'know?

I don’t know but I get the feeling John Lassater is spiteful person.

We’ve all heard how wonderful he is but the true measure of a man is what he does in a situation of conflict.

This really does bother me. Even if Bolt is worlds apart from American Dog I doubt there's even be a Bolt coming out if it weren't for Sanders. Yet they erased his name entirely. It's he who writes the history books that writes history. It's just too convenient that Lasseter was the one writing the history book this time - clears his name.

In response, I've made my own "art of book":

Would American Dog had been a bigger success than Bolt?

No. But it wouldn't have had less, either.
