Remy and Rattus cook up a treat in the kitchen. This photo shoot happened during my last visit to the US back in June/July when I had the good fortune to visit [livejournal.com profile] nicodemusrat, who has built his own unofficial Remy. When I first saw Remy at FC last year I almost hyperventilated from the excitement! I was better able to contain myself this time and this photo shoot was the result.

My new German friend [livejournal.com profile] hawthorn sent me this video of a Nissan ad from Germany featuring Remy and Emile. Unfortunately, it looks like you have to download it to be able to hear the audio, which is of course in German. It also has something for fatfurs as well. ;)

EDIT: And of course the wonderful and amazing raccoon that is [livejournal.com profile] higgs_raccoon, has found an English language version here.

I found a surprise in my letter box today. A postcard from Remy. Hmmm. Although the handwriting does look familiar and I know a certain friend was recently in Paris, perhaps I should take it in the same spirit as the text chat and choose to believe...

I got some really amazing presents for my birthday (not least of which was a trip to a real French restaurant!) but I have to admit that the most amazing was an actual banner promoting Ratatouille, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] brisdrake. Naturally, Rattus just had to pose with it. Thank you so much Drake!

(Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lord_shadows and [livejournal.com profile] ozkangaroo for both pointing this out to me.) Oh, god, it's just too beautiful! How badly I want to see these fursuits and cuddle Remy (on the right).



Do you think they'll still have them performing in Disneyland around this time next year? Or will they make an appearance in Australia? Please?

(Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] whyrl for pointing this one out.)
The Disney website has a 9 minute clip of Ratatouille.

(Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] madiushrat for pointing this out.)
The trailer is now available in glorious high definition from the official Ratatouille website. Go see it!

"Don't be so modest, you're a rat, for Pete's sake!"

There's a new Ratatouille trailer on the official website, which reveals more of the storyline. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] higgs_raccoon for pointing it out.) Go see it! A high resolution version isn't up on Apple Movie Trailers yet, but I'll let you know when it is.

Also check out this very high resolution still for a bit of eye candy.

*in paroxysms of joy* No longer do I have to content myself with a "leaked" low res version of the trailer for Ratatouille. Disney have released it officially and you can even download it in glorious High Definition with 5.1 surround sound! (If only I had a surround sound system.) Oh, God, I can see every last strand of fur.

In all the excitement about Ratatouille, I've been ignoring the other rat movie: Flushed Away. It turns out the trailer for that one has already been officially released. My first impression was that it's a shame they're using computer animation to mimic stop motion (the characters aren't even furry), but like all Aardman films I think it will be redeemed by its humour and writing. Even though it's due out in November and Ratatouille is slated for June next year (I think they were originally scheduled to come out around the same time, until Ratatouille got delayed) it is edifying to see two big budget good quality films about rats come out in the near future. How many years since the last one? *cough*Secret of NIMH*cough*

Cars is out in cinemas today and rumour has it that Pixar have included a trailer promoting their next movie, Ratatouille, due out in cinemas about this time next year. Judging from the advertising on children's television this morning, Disney have already admitted Cars is a dog of a film and is only interested in exploiting the obvious merchandising possibilities that come from a movie about cars. What I want to know from anyone who might have gone to see Cars, is it true that they have a trailer for Ratatouille showing beforehand? I'm tempted to go see it just to see the trailer on the big screen.

[livejournal.com profile] ristin made a very interesting point about how happy he is that I finally have a positive rolemodel for rats in Ratatouille but the upcoming movie Over the Hedge (already screening in the States, but still to be released over here) has a raccoon as the main character and it seems to be perpetuating more negative stereotypes of raccoons (he's a sneaky manipulative thief, but I'm sure the movie will bring to light a lot of good qualities too). But just how good a rolemodel will Ratatouille be? Based on the trailer, he's a greedy thief (most rats, and his father is an example, engage in the far more honourable profession of scavenging) but we are invited to empathise with the character's addiction to fine food and, as flawed as he is, he's clearly the "hero" of the film. I think I speak for all rats here in saying that we're just grateful to be getting even some partially positive attention in the mainstream media.
