A Pixar movie, directed by Pete Docter, about a jazz musician!? There simply could not be a better combination in my mind.
If the art book is any indication, the movie will be as good as I expect it to be. The Art of Soul itself is an absolute delight: it is full of concept art from cover to cover, all of it original and beautiful... Were some of those pieces of artwork inspired by Walt Peregoy's work on One Hundred and One Dalmatians? I would not be surprised if that were the case.
The bottom line is that this book is one of the very best "Art of" books from Chronicle Books to date and that I simply can't wait for the movie to release on December 25 on Disney+

Not to be missed:
The Baum Bugle is normally only available to members of the International Wizard of Oz Club (to find out more, follow this link).
Fortunately, the International Wizard of Oz Club has a very, very limited number of copies (no more than 25 I believe) that they have agreed to sell to readers of the Disney History blog and to members of the Disney History Institute Facebook page.
The cost is $15 apiece, including postage to US addresses, and interested buyers need to make a PayPal transfer directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Full disclosure: I contributed in one way or another to all of them.
