Marvel & Disney Publishing Announce Disney•Pixar Presents

The Pixar movie properties now move from BOOM! Studios over to the Disney-owned Marvel Comics. While this probably isn’t too much of a surprise, I still think BOOM! deserves big kudos for the quality books they’ve produced centering on the Pixar characters and for making those comics hugely popular. It remains to be seen if there will be the same success with all the stories condensed into one magazine with a $6 price tag. Here’s all the details from today’s announcement:

Marvel and Disney Publishing will debut DISNEY•PIXAR PRESENTS, a new monthly magazine featuring some of the most popular characters from the acclaimed Disney/Pixar films. Intended for readers of all ages and priced at $5.99, the first issue will hit stores in May 2011.

Each issue of the magazine contains 96 full color pages of content, including a mix of brand new stories, classic adventures, puzzles, games and more. Featuring characters from Disney/Pixar’s hit movies Cars, Cars 2, The Incredibles, Toy Story 3, and more, DISNEY•PIXAR PRESENTS will be available at bookstores, retail chains, comic stores and more. The series debuts with DISNEY•PIXAR PRESENTS: Cars Magazine #1.

“We’re excited for the launch of DISNEY•PIXAR PRESENTS, teaming with our friends at Disney/Pixar to bring some exciting new material to fans all over the world and introducing a whole new generation to comics,” said Axel Alonso, Editor-in-Chief. “We’re committed to providing a great product and ensuring these books are available in locations that parents and kids frequent. The Disney/Pixar library includes some of the most popular characters of all time, making DISNEY•PIXAR PRESENTS exactly the kind of comic magazine that kids and parents have been demanding!”

Rev up those engines and join your favorite characters from CARS in DISNEY•PIXAR PRESENTS: Cars Magazine #1 as Lightning McQueen organizes a charity race for young cars with special needs, but he didn’t invite Piston Cup champion Chick Hicks. The snub gets Hick’s competitive juices flowing, and he’s out to show McQueen a thing or two about racing! Will Hicks ruin the good nature of the Radiator Springs Rally Race? Find out this May everywhere books and comics are sold.

Get Ready for Pixar Films in 3D

Disney and Pixar announced in New York yesterday that all new Pixar films would soon be released in 3D, along with the standard 2D format. The move is slated to take place with the release of Pixar’s Up, which will hit theaters in May of 2009. This announcement was in conjunction with Disney’s release of their upcoming animated films over the next few years.

Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter expressed his delight with Pixar’s inclusion of the 3D format, saying that “”I love 3D. I made a 3D computer-animated short in 1989 called ‘Nickname,’ and in fact my wedding pictures with my beautiful wife Nancy were made in 3D.”
