Pixar Ratatouille in HD makes Shrek look like Filmation.
The official Trailer & Teaser are Apple Trailers in HD also. You can also choose from 480p to 1080p.
Of course if you don’t know what the film is about, here’s the original press release:
“A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely – and certainly unwanted – visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.
Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in life or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef. Directed by Academy Award™-winning Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) and co-directed by Academy Award™-winning Jan Pinkava (“Geri’s Game”), Ratatouille is slated for release on June 29, 2007.”
Starring the voice talents of: Patton Oswalt, Brian Dennehy, Brad Garrett, Janeane Garofalo, Ian Holm and John Ratzenberger.
My guess is the merchandiscing is not going to be that exciting – sort of like FINDING NEMO, while the movie was great – the toy play factor of rats is pretty much like fish …
Though this Mousetrap game or knockoff might be fun.
In case, you’re curious, the ratatouille dish is a vegetable stew of eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes and peppers. It looks and sounds more exciting going by this.
But I guess with rat theme, there won’t be much of a fast food tie-in.
