Pixar characters to feature on US stamps this August

The US Postal Service is to issue a series of five special stamps featuring popular Pixar characters.

According to the official announcement, the ‘Send a Hello stamps’, which go on sale on 19 August, “are a natural outgrowth of the Art of Disney stamp series issued between 2004 and 2008”.

Characters featured include Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story movies, WALL-E, Linguini and Remy from Ratatouille, Carl and Dug from Up and Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars.
