First Look at "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" Photo; Web Series to Premier at D23 Expo

Disney Interactive has released the first images of the intriguing web series featuring Vinylmation called "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story." We learned of this web series months ago with a post talking about upcoming Disney digital projects and we know there is a Thomas Scott designed Vinylmation based on this web series that will be sold at the D23 Expo, although no photos have been released of the figure. But it was just announced that "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" will have it's world premier at the D23 Expo on Sunday, August 11 at Noon during the Disney Interactive presentation. And here is the "movie poster" to promote the event:

No real idea what we can infer from this graphic. Will it be stop motion with real Vinylmation? You can see that both the Mickey and Minnie platforms are used for this shot. I thought it would be more like a computer animated version of a Vinylmation, but if this poster is any hint, I will much more enjoy a stop motion version. My interest is now heightened. Here is the official press release for the Disney Interactive presentation that includes video game and other digital media announcements and demos:
