For various reasons I have not been to a cinema since Oppenheimer, but I am definitely planning to catch "Inside Out 2" on the silver screen. I am very much looking forward to this, in fact.

The new book The Art of Inside Out 2 released by Chronicle Books reinforces my eagerness to watch the upcoming movie. I love the design of the new characters and the concept artwork is gorgeous.

Definitely worth adding to your library.

Shaun Jex was kind enough to send me a copy of his book Main Street Gossip, which collects fun facts about many Disney characters and I wanted to mention its existence here.

If you enjoy Jim Korkis' books you will probably like this one. It is a light read for casual Disney fans. I am not sure how Jex decided which characters to include and which ones to leave out. The result does not move the needle in terms of Disney history (that was never the goal) but is a fun read nonetheless.
