About the Movie

The Pixar Story takes audiences behind the scenes of the groundbreaking company that pioneered a new generation of animation and forever changed the face of filmmaking. Using never-before-seen footage from the Pixar library, along with historic archival animation and first hand accounts by animators, studio executives, directors, producers and voice performers, Academy Award** nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks tells the riveting story of the Bay Area start-up that revolutionized Hollywood. In the mid 1980s, an inspired and inspiring trio of innovators combined their gifts in art, science and business to launch a new way to make 3-D animated films and changed the face of filmmaking forever. Ed Catmull, John Lasseter and Steve Jobs overcame years of creative struggle and financial loss to launch an entirely new animation industry. Starting with the first full length CG film Toy Story, Pixar has entertained millions of people worldwide, and established an unprecedented and as yet unparalleled record of box-office success. Iwerks takes viewers on a dramatic journey filled with personal sacrifice and fueled by passionate belief in the possibilities of a new medium as Pixar Animation Studios is born. The Pixar Story features exclusive interviews with some of the key players in the Pixar story including John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, Steve Jobs, George Lucas, Michael Eisner, Bob Iger, Tom Hanks, Billy Crystal, Tim Allen, Brad Bird and more.

Customer Reviews

Geeeez! Ok, I have actually SEEN the whole doco, not just the preview.

Ok, I'm tired of people writing "reviews" saying things like it "looks boring" or "looks bad". Keyword: "looks". They haven't even seen it! Well, I have seen this documentary and its really very good. Pretty much just read the synopsis if you want to know what its about, but its very well presented and accessible to almost anyone who loves pixar, and I highly reccommend this.

Inspiring story

What a marvelous story that I will share with my children and their children.

An insight into the magical world of Pixar...

A fantastic account of Pixar's growth from it's cutting edge start, with all it's own characters (staff) providing insane injections of time & energy, to... well, the same again for most of their award winning films. If you grew up with interests in computers, animation, films, or if you simply wonder about the business of film making, then I recommend this documentary. It's a smoothly paced, interesting look into the lives of those people who created the legend of Pixar.
