With Pixar having a nice full slate of upcoming films, some projects do unfortunately fall by the wayside. I'm especially sad about Pixar's Newt, since it sounded adorable (it was about a male newt who found the last female newt of his species). At the same time though, I do believe it's a good thing that Pixar wants to expand itself outside of tiny animals.
And while we've shown off a bit of Newt concept art before, this new batch posted by artist Katy Wu, especially hurts. Just look at how cuuuuute this is! Why can't I have it? You can check out some pieces in the gallery with more at Wu's page.
