Here’s the latest trailer for Pixar’s Ratatouille with a lot of new footage that I haven’t seen anywhere else before.

(Thanks, John)

    This looks great! It’s a little weird that no one speaks with a French accent (at least in this trailer), but I’m sure I’ll get past that.

  • Adrian

    Yeah, right. because we all know that in France everybody speaks English with a French accent… :D

    I am REALLY looking forward to this film. The main rat looks great, and really well animated. I am also curious as to this boy is. I never knew of him when they announced the film.

    I have a sister who is training to become a chef. I know she will dive right into this. I can see her identifying the ingredients in that scene.

    Looking forward to June 2007.

  • Hulk

    So Patton Oswalt is the voice of the Rat. Who’s the voice of the Kitchen Boy? I don’t quite recognize it.

    This looks great. I cannot wait for this. I was a little unsure, and I felt a little unsatisfied with Cars, so I was nervous, but now I’m completely on board.

    I’m going to have myself frozen cryogenically until this comes out. I hope the cryonics place takes Visa.

    Still, Adrian, they could have at least tried not to make the main characters sound like they were from California.

  • LNG

    That’s either Brad Bird doing the Kitchen Boy or someone channelng his emotional gestalt. Gershwin’s music is perfect. Let’s hope this isn’t just a scratch track for the trailer. Randy Newman can’t top “The American in Paris Ballet”, no matter how many Oscars he’s won, and he’d be the first to agree.

  • Remy

    I’d say the music WAS scratch… there was bits from Roger Rabbit in there for sure…

  • Max

    I’m pretty sure the kitchen boy is voiced by Lou Romano.

    Love the use of the camera.
    I’m anxiously awaiting this film.

  • Sean D.

    The head chef speaks English with a French accent… saw some other footage at Wondercon besides this trailer, and it all looks amazing! Brad Bird said he’s only doing a small background character and I don’t remember his description of which character.

    Thanks for posting the trailer!

  • Craig McCracken

    Yep that’s Lou as the kid, even sorta looks like him.

  • droosan

    IIRC, Michael Giacchino will be scoring Ratatouille; not Randy Newman. Very nice trailer; for some reason, the japanese Pixar trailers always do a better job of getting me excited about their films.

  • Cello

    Man this is coming up to be a cute film… Actually, it’s kinda weird nowadays to have an animated trailer that focuses on the more touching moments of the story rather than just a random slideshow of funny clips from the movie. I like that! Way to go, Pixar!

    And really, some people are worried that Remy plushies won’t sell because he’s a rat… That’s just ridiculous.

  • Hulk

    Glad to hear they are letting more animation artists do voices too. Lou is also a reall good actor aside from being a great artist ( I don’t know him. I’m just a fan) Is “the Trouble with Lou” gonna be released any time soon?

  • http://www.bishopanimation.com Floyd Bishop

    Brad Bird is a great director (and I loved “the Incredibles” and “The Iron Giant”), but I really wanted to see what Jan Pinkava would do with a feature. I’m disappointed that he’s not directing this. “Geri’s Game” is one of the strongest things Pixar has done so far. Hopefully Jan gets his own film soon.

    AN AMERICAN IN PARIS!!!! haha, how appropriate! wow, this lets on a lot more of the story. that is odd that the kitchen boy has an american accent, but maybe he is an american in paris (no pun intended…) i highly doubt pixar would do something dumb like that. remember all the accents in finding nemo?

  • Bugsmer

    This looks like it might actually be a good movie.

  • Michael

    The first trailer they released of Ratatouille I couldn’t catch where they were taking it. I’ve noticed that pattern in Pixar trailers, save Monsters Inc, that they don’t really give out what the story’s about until the last moment. I barely got what the Incredibles was going to be about when watching that unused clip of Mr. Incredible trying to put on his belt, but I guess it was to imply that his character would be called to a new adventure for him but out of shape for that task. I don’t mind though, that really makes me interested by wanting to guess what’s Pixar doing now. Can’t wait either!

  • Chris Sobieniak

    - Yeah, right. because we all know that in France everybody speaks English with a French accent… :D

    Still it makes me think of all those old cartoons I used to watch where often they didn’t always try to make it seem too realistic with it came to what conveyed better to the audience that would be watching the piece, so characters talking in English with French accents was so commonplace in an era where social studies/geography wasn’t a necessary tool for survival. My mom personally doesn’t even know exactly where we are anymore. I’m just glad I was good in most subjects except for math (my weakest point).

    Though someome mentioned this was a Japanese trailer, I would concur and say it’s Chinese (I still can’t tell if it’s either Mandarin or Cantonese), but it’s definately not Japanese.

    Absolutely beautiful…
    This film looks SO promising on every level!
    :)
    Of course, the acting is outstanding. I LOVE when the ‘rat’
    responds to the kid’s question about wether he knows how
    to cook… brilliant!

    {french accent} i looove it

    This new trailer is a tremendous improvement over the older one. I wasn’t too impressed when I first saw clips of this movie, but now I’m genuinely interested. It seems that Brad Bird has made his mark as a director. I don’t think he’ll be pinch-hitting for someone else on this one.

    I’m really looking forward to it now. I hope this trailer is a fair indication of the final film. Please, please, please don’t load it up with crappy pop songs. Please write a real story. Please leave out the sappy moral lessons. Am I asking for too much? We’ll see.

    The only time I can recall a “pop song” in a Pixar film was the Rascall Flats “Life is a Highway” cover in Cars. Usually they go with more jazz and orchestral stuff.

    This trailer is great. I assume this will play at the beginning of Meet the Robinsons when its released here.

    I can’t say I’m not disappointed seeing this trailer. Right off the bat, the color design is so miserably monotone! The last Pixar movie I really enjoyed was the tongue-in-cheek silliness of Monsters, Inc. — this movie looks like it has the potential to be a sentimental mess. Blasphemous as it might be on this board, I think I might hate Brad Bird… Something about his work feels so emotionally hollow and disingenuous to me. Anyone else get that feeling?

    - Though someome mentioned this was a Japanese trailer, I would concur and say it’s Chinese (I still can’t tell if it’s either Mandarin or Cantonese), but it’s definately not Japanese.

    It’s Chinese. Mandarin and Cantonese are different dialects however they both use the same written language.

    Back on topic, I’m really looking forward to seeing this movie!

  • John

    Now -that- looks wonderful.

    Now I can’t wait to see it!

  • http://cartoongeeks.blogspot.com/ Michelle Klein-Hass

    This is some of the best animation of humans in any Pixar film. Even better than The Incredibles which had some really good cartoony stuff. And Ratatouille himself is adorable. This might redeem Pixar for inflicting “Cars” on us.

  • Steve Gattuso

    Nice choice of Gershwin for the trailer. Unfortunately, YouTube’s reolution remains extra sucky, but even here you can see the marvelous detail Pixar has gone to for this new feature.

  • Mark

    WOW! Does that look amazing. The set, character, and color design look astonishing, and the cinematography and lighting blow everything out of the water, and may be the best looking animated film from Pixar since Finding Nemo.

    Can’t wait!

  • http://sewardstreet.com Jim

    It’s insane how good that looks.

  • Jorge Garrido

    Nice trailer, but it was a bit too realistic for me. When I saw the first teaser trailer, I thought the film was an allegory for animation: trash vs. good qaulity animation (and how people don’t care if they are consuming trash) I hope this angle was kept in the final film.

  • http://blackwingdiaries.blogspot.com Jenny

    Damn you, you guys. Bird, you sob–you make me cry every time with these trailers.
    Gershwin? BGs that look (to me, anyway) like gouaches from Pinocchio? Beautiful pacing and all the rest of it? That’s how it should be.
    Lou, gosh-I nearly fell out of my chair. You’re perfect.
    I know you all kill yourselves during production…but isn’t it great when it’s worth it?

  • Kyle

    the youtube vid was removed. is there another place to view it?

  • http://gagaman.blogspot.com GagaMan

    It’s been removed! Looks like this wasn’t meant to be released yet. Glad I watched it a few times!

  • Kyle

    well, it was removed by the user, not youtube. so obviously it wasnt disney who wanted it removed…

  • http://isleofsmeeb.blogspot.com mattsullivan

    I was lucky enough to download and save this trailer before it was removed. I’ve been watching it over and over and over with wide, child-like eyes. The acting is PHENOMENAL. Not many people can pull off effective subtle acting, but this trailer shows WHY Pixar is so good.

    Now, looking at this acting just re-enforces my belief that the “BEST ANIMATED FEATURE” oscar category is a terrible insult to animators everywhere, who should be recognized as great ACTORS.

    Animation is the film industry’s shamefull little brother, and they’re always trying to shove it in a closet, because when you come right down to it, animated films ( even cheap ones ) can look so much better than live action. Don’t believe me? Then why don’t peope bitch about a “glut” of live-action films?

    Now, back to the Ratatouille trailer. *click*

    Well, I’m glad I saw it before it was taken down.

    Looks great . I’m completely stoked to see this film.

    I hope they use the Gershwin “An American in Paris” music in the actual film somehow , just a quick quotation , it’s such a great piece and I loved how they used it in this trailer . Maybe we’ll see this trailer soon in front of “Meet The Robinson’s” ?

  • k. borcz

    I watched it on a computer without sound, and it looked great. I could still tell what was going on. I’m sure the sound will be suitable once it’s set. Can’t wait!

  • Ming

    The one on Youtube is taken out. Look at this one:

  • Chris

    I remember being very worried about Cars after seeing every English language trailer I could find. It was the Chinese trailer that really got me pumped up about it. Why do they get the good trailers? Guess I’ll have to wait for the official release as it seems the Ratatouille trailer posted is down.

    Loved the movie! One of my favorites, and i was glad the movie did so well, because i was a little disappointed with cars…

    but near the end of the trailer, there is a song being played in the backround. does anyone know what the song is? Thank you so much if you do!
