If you’ve seen Pixar‘s latest film Inside Out, then you likely felt a swell of all the feels a few times throughout the movie. And while it’s easy for some of us to get caught up in the emotions of the film (both as feelings and as characters scrambling on the big screen), there are those who may not be as moved by the struggles 11-year old Riley has in the movie.
A clever new video has surfaced online called Pixar Depression, presented as if it were a prescription commercial for some kind of anti-depressant. In reality, what it does is poke fun at the hardships presented in the movie by pointing out that Riley just has a case of first world problems. Watch Pixar Depression after the jump! Read More »

Disney has been very busy refurbishing some of their older attractions. Last year Disney added new effects to Big Thunder Mountain, Alice in Wonderland and the Indiana Jones Adventure. This year already Disney has revamped a bunch of attractions, adding the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion as well as adding new effects and an awesome new animatronic Yeti to Matterhorn (too bad the new vehicles kill your butt).
And the newest attraction to get refurbishment is Peter Pan’s Flight, one of my favorite rides in classic Fantasyland — I just love suspended dark ride vehicles, which is one of the reasons I love the Universal Studios’ ET Adventure ride. Walt Disney Imagineering has released a video showcasing the new additions to the attraction, giving us a behind the scenes peek into the thought and work that went into the new effects. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

You can’t help it, everytime you’re on a rollercoaster you stick your arms out and up even though there is a fear that they will somehow be torn off during an unexpected turn or drop in the ride. I know I feel this way everytime I ride Space Mountain at Disneyland. So how does Disney ensure that park guests never lose a limb on their attractions? The answer is something called the “Envelope of Protection”. Learn what the Disney Envelope of Protection device is and see it in action, after the jump.

While there’s plenty of sound design, editing and recording that has to be done for live-action movies, the job seems a little more difficult when it comes to feature-length animated films. Every single sound you hear has to be manufactured for the film. And that job gets exponentially harder when you have to give sound to a location you’ve thought about, but have never been to, like the inside of an 11-year old girl’s mind.
That’s the challenge that faced director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera and supervising sound editor Shannon Mills from Skywalker Sound with Pixar’s latest film Inside Out. And now SoundWorks Collection dives into how the sounds of the movie were created, and as you would expect, it’s very fascinating. Learn about the sound of Inside Out after the jump! Read More »
The first 10 minutes of Pixar Animation‘s movie Up are enough to make anyone cry, no matter what age or how tough you are. And now we have another potentially sad story with links to the Pixar movie
You might remember back in 2006 there was the real-life story of an old woman named Edith Macefield who refused a $1 million offer for her 1,000-square-foot house. An investment company was developing a 131,000-square-foot retail center in the area and wanted to tear down her house to use the entire area for their building. But since she refused to sell, they built the entire building around her house (as seen above). But now that house may end up being demolished anyway. Find out if we’ll see the Up house demolished after the jump. Read More »

And like every Pixar movie, it’s ripe with easter eggs referencing all of the animation studio’s movies that came before it. Some are hard to spot, others are pretty easy to see. And we run through as many of them as we can below. Check out all the Inside Out easter eggs after the jump! Read More »
