    Rat DVD Has First Pixar 2-D Toon

    The upcoming DVD release of Disney/Pixar's animated RatatouilleRatatouille's hero, Remy the rat (voiced by Patton Oswalt), and his brother, Emile (Peter Sohn), who talk about the history and behavior of rats in an effort to persuade human viewers not to kill the ubiquitous rodents. "We had to be scrappy" to get the movie made, said Capobianco, who worked as a story supervisor on Ratatouille.

    For example, to shoot a sequence of stop-motion animation, Capobianco and his team made use of a darkened screening room at Pixar, since the studio has no stop-motion stages. For another sequence, Capobianco's animators drew a series of line drawings on a chalkboard. The result is reminiscent of 1960s-era educational films, old UPA shorts and classic Ward Kimball animation from Disney, he said.
    Sounds Very Interesting! Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Thanks to Cartoon Brew, Animted-News,, and Al for sharing the information.
