I like promotional vector images in that marketing poster. Very simple but very cute. From what I see it seems like they are aiming to please a younger crowd with the two current images hopefully hitting the market of little boys. Then again it is impossible to tell since there is so little out on the movie.

Aww, what a cute image! So much more exiting than that generic one, mainly Bolt. Still hoping the trailer will put doubts to rest.

Well, I kinda thought Bolt was cute all along, this just makes him a lot cuter and now you can more easily see the 'bolt' on his side.

Just goes to show how much <I>better</I> things keep looking in hand-drawn images.

I'll always remember seeing those Incredibles pencil sketches and being disappointed that the final characters shared none of that vitality and energy inherent in them.

Love that the DVD release is already set. Honestly, between Potter and Bond, does Bolt stand a chance either?

Probably not, but that doesn't mean it won't be a good movie anyway (which until the trailer is released and we see what they've got, it could go either way).

True, but in my opinion WDFA (or WDAS) needs something daring and original, like Pixar's WALL-E, to restore their reputation. The LAST thing they need is another "cute" movie. :? Playing it safe at this stage, in my opinion, is not going to do them any favors.

I think so, Brain, but if we didn’t have ears, wouldn’t we sort of look like weasels?

I'm sure one will pop up soon-ish... nice pic, though. I wonder if the sign is a hint at anything.

Yeah, I actually like this still better than the first. There's more energy to it.

If you go to this site and click on the image of Byron Howard, you can see more "Bolt" artwork in the background-

Some talkback about Bolt/Disney Feature:
Anonymous said...

Mark Henn is the Sup.Animator on Tiana. :)

RE: Bolt...95% of anyone you talk to who saw the screening *literally* raved about the story, the look, the humor, etc. The film turned a corner and has blossomed into something to be very proud of as a studio.

This is very encouraging, but marred somewhat with talk that some of the future traditional films they're planning might have some outsourcing...not too clear about this. :?

More encouraging stuff-

QUOTE: On a brighter note--in my very humble opinion, Bolt has turned out to be (by far) the best story Disney has come up with since the Lion King/Aladdin days.

Very encouraging! :D
