Storyline

A look at the first years of Pixar Animation Studios - from the success of "Toy Story" and Pixar's promotion of talented people, to the building of its East Bay campus, the company's relationship with Disney, and its remarkable initial string of eight hits. The contributions of John Lasseter, Ed Catmull and Steve Jobs are profiled. The decline of two-dimensional animation is chronicled as three-dimensional animation rises. Hard work and creativity seem to share the screen in equal proportions. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An Outstanding Rags to Riches Story of Pixar
10 January 2019 | by rleecollinsSee all my reviews

This is an amazing story of artists, engineers and computer geeks who share a fascination with computer animation and movie making. This eclectic collaboration of hard work and family friendly movie making was rivaled only by Walt Disney himself and resulted in a string of amazing cinematic successes rare in the movie industry - a must see!
