Somehow it doesn't seem right not having Impressions doing it, but then since they do not exist anymore... Can't say I like the cartoony art. Seems like the only ones doing more realistic art these days are the high end 3-D games

That cartoon style is straight up Disney. I am not sure it's part of the game though; I think it's just for the trailer.

Because the last 5 or so seconds of the video, appear to quickly show some game footage, which looks vastly different than the rest of that trailer.

As a side note, about cartoon vs realistic art... Cartoon is probably cheaper to do, than realistic. Because realistic they probably need to do rotoscoping and all that stuff, to make it look real, which means either real locations or real people, which means more money. The cartoon appeal may also attract a younger audience.

I kinda like the art style, but I agree with Tawmis that most of what is shown in this trailer is non-gameplay. The part at the end does look like that.
