"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? Newt and Brooke embark on a perilous, unpredictable adventure and discover that finding a mate never goes as planned, even when you only have one choice. Love, it turns out, is not a science."
Pixar announced Newt two years ago with a planned 2012 release date, but pushed another Pixar project, The Bear and the Bow (retitled as Brave), ahead of Newt.Newt was originally set as the feature-length directorial debut for Gary Rydstrom (Pixar short Lifted). Pixar didn't include Newt as part of its slate of upcoming projects that were announced in April. A month later, an unnamed source told Entertainment Weekly that Pixar had taken Newt off of the development schedule to allow the creative teams to focus on other upcoming projects.
