Monday Link Roundup [UPDATED]

Update: Here is the just-released Princess and the Frog official movie poster!

Here is a quick list of brief links that you oughta check out if you want to keep up with the latest Disney, Pixar, Movie, Gadget, and everything in-between news:

  • Disney's upcoming 2D feature, The Princess and the Frog, has a newly released trailer! Here it is:

The Princess and the Frog
looks different from what I expected, but it looks like it (hopefully) will be a great animated film. I cannot wait to see more of the Louis Armstrong-inspired character Louis the Alligator, animated by everybody's favorite lead animator Eric Goldberg, who was also the lead animator for the Genie in Aladdin.

  • Upcoming Pixar has an article that discusses the line of brand new, vintage Up posters, similar to the one above.

  • Here is a video of "Cluster Ballooning" that took place at Pixar as a part of Up's marketing campaign.

  • Forbes has an interesting article about animation that I don't absolutely agree with, but it is still a good read.

  • The re-release of Toy Story in 3D is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Read about it at /Film, read all about it here.

  • Pixar has released their updated versions of RenderMan for Maya and RenderMan Studio.

  • And, finally, the big news of the week is that Pixar is opening a new studio for shorts and other smaller Pixar projects in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada!
