Anyone seen this yet? To me it exudes that Pixar feel-- warm, funny, rich graphics. Looking forward to it-- wondering about the plot.
I agree. There' a "felt" quality to Pixar's stuff that separates it from the Disney/Dreamworks style of "lots of 'hip' references and toilet humor for the all important 12 year boy demographic" CG offerings.
"Cars" marks the return of John "Toy Story" Lassiter to the director's chair, so I wouldn't worry about the plot-- Pixar is extremely story driven, and none more than Lassiter. I think it's the willingness to spend time really pouring some love into the stories and characters that make Pixar so good.
Well, that and the head and shoulders above the pack animation.
