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.
...but if you own Wall-E, you can watch it free in the bonus features.... I don't think it should be sold if it's already included in a movie for free, unless, ya know.. It's cheaper...
Great documentary... stupid people watching it
First the actual topic... awesome documentary. I myself am studying to be an animator and hopefully land a job at Pixar. It's an entertaining and very informational movie.
Now as for everyone else here... "iTunes is greedy!" "stop ripping me off!!". I wish people would think before they type. iTunes/Apple is not the ones who determine which movies can be bought, rented or both. They don't determine the pricing (well... somewhat). If anything blame the greedy movie studios who feel so overprotective of their content. It's like they are afraid that iTunes would ruin their industry... just like iTunes ruined the music industry (that's sarcasm by the way).
Wake up Apple--this to buy only option is silly--why don't u rent it too? U would make more money.
