See What Pixar's 'Newt' Would Have Looked Like

Possibly because it too closely resembled the upcoming animated films Rio and Alpha and Omega--possibly because it basically sounds like every romantic comedy ever, only with lizards--Pixar's Newt and its "last remaining pair of rare newts hate each other but must mate to repopulate the species" premise has been abandoned by the studio so that they can get working on another GD Cars movies. But in case you were wondering how the concept designs were looking before the plug was pulled, Disney/Pixar has posted some of the artwork on the official Facebook page. Maybe DreamWorks can still use these as a basis for something they'd call Geckoz.
