First Official 'Cars 3' Poster Released

Right on the heels of the chilling teaser trailer last week, Yahoo! Movies has premiered the first official poster for Pixar's upcoming Cars 3.

Sporting the film's tagline "From this moment, everything will change," the striking poster captures the intense moment from the trailer that shook the world and traumatized children. Like the trailer, this poster is visually stunning and seems to serve as a powerful metaphor for the trials McQueen will face in the next chapter of his life.

Pixar Planet France also stumbled across a more vibrant international poster for the film, featuring McQueen—no longer in mortal danger—speeding across a beach.

McQueen Is a Wreck in 'Cars 3' Teaser Trailer

The first teaser trailer for Cars 3 was finally released on Monday. Those expecting more of the lighthearted antics of McQueen and Mater that have become a staple of the franchise may be in for a bit of a shock, however....

Looks like McQueen is in for a rough time in this threequel.

Unlike most of Pixar's teasers, which are usually pretty jovial, this one is bleak and humorless. The colors are muted. There is no dialogue, no jokes. Only a (gorgeously animated) race, which echoes the opening scene of the original Cars, and a very intense crash, which also harks back to Doc and the King's accidents in the first film.

One thing is certain; this teaser did its job because it has everyone talking about Pixar's next movie. Though the Cars franchise is often shunned and labelled as the inferior runt of the studio's prestigious library of films, the new 50-second teaser has set the internet ablaze, amassing over 4 million views in its first 24 hours and nabbing the #1 spot on YouTube's trends.

Cars 3 races into theaters next summer on June 16.

'Finding Dory' Gets A Final Trailer

As Pixar gears up to finally release Finding Dory in just 17 days, the studio released a final trailer for the highly anticipated sequel last week, offering fans one last glimpse at the film before it swims into theaters. Check it out below.

Two clips from the film were also released, featuring the surfer sea turtle Crush, voiced again by director Andrew Stanton and newcomer Hank the septopus, voiced by Ed O'Neil.

All signs point to this being yet another delightful and heartfelt entry into the Pixar catalog, one which hopefully does right by its predecessor. In any case, it will be great just to see Marlin, Nemo, and Dory on the big screen again for the first time in over a decade. Today, coincidentally, marks the 13th anniversary of Finding Nemo.

Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17. You can buy tickets now!

Another Year in the Bag

Though it certainly doesn't feel like it, today marks six years since I started writing this little blog. It seems like just yesterday I was an eager 11-year-old with a passion for Pixar, animation, and storytelling, counting down the days until Toy Story 3. Today, I am an eager 17-year-old with a passion for Pixar, animation, and storytelling, counting down the days until Finding Dory. In that sense, not much has changed, but this blog has paved the way for a lot of personal growth. I think it's safe to say that I am a much more capable writer now than I was six years ago (you can look back at my earlier posts and judge for yourself). Above all, running Pixar Corner has shown me the value of hard work and has also granted me the chance to connect with some remarkable people. The Pixar and animation fan communities are among the most amiable and encouraging that I have ever encountered, and it is always a pleasure to interact with a fellow animation enthusiast.

I regret that, as of late, I've not been able to dedicate nearly as much time to the blog as I would like, but I intend to clear up my schedule soon so I can return to blogging regularly, as I really do enjoy it. Every step of the way has been delightful, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

I say essentially the same thing every time the blog's anniversary comes along, but I can't stress enough how grateful I am for all the support I have received these past six years. Truly, every word of encouragement has stuck with me and has motivated me to keep going. Thanks for stopping by.

New 'Finding Dory' Posters Emerge

A handful of colorful new posters for Finding Dory have surfaced in the past couple of weeks, including the main theatrical poster pictured above. This one puts Dory right in the center surrounded by the film's diverse cast of sea creatures, including a school of regal tangs. The poster is reminiscent of the theatrical poster for Finding Nemo from thirteen years ago.

Four additional posters were released last month, all with the motif of literally "finding Dory".

Lastly, a couple of international posters have also popped up, namely a Japanese version and one for the UK.
