Pixar is known for its array of animated classics including Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo and Toy Story. But back in 2008 Pixar announced there plans for a new kids movie entitled Newt, which came with the synopsis “What happens when the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on the planet are forced together by science to save the species, and they can’t stand each other?”. But now with other Pixar projects such as Monsters Inc 2 and Cars 2 being pushed forward, last February we are hit with the news that Newt may not be happening at all. And two months later its official: Newt is no longer happening.
This source comes from Pixar’s Blog, which after noticing the project was deleted from the Disney A -Z Official Encyclopedia, then sent an email asking Disney what the story was. And Disney replied with “the film has been cancelled”. Which is a shock to hear, as Pixar is known for its imaginative and original ideas – but it will be nice to see the other characters.
