First Look: ‘Toy Story Hawaiian Vacation’

While Toy Story 3 may have concluded the full-length feature story of the Toy Story characters, Pixar is continuing the series with at least two shorts that hit later this year. The first, Toy Story Hawaiian Vacation, arrives with Cars 2 on June 24, while the second (title not yet revealed) will run with The Muppets in December.

Here are the first images from Hawaiian Vacation, which was directed by Gary Rydstrom. The second is after the break. Read More »

Pixar’s ‘Toy Story’ Zoetrope

One of the cool exhibits hidden inside the animation building in Disneyland’s California Adventure is a zoetrope created by Pixar (I think the zoetrope might also be on display at some of “The Art of Pixar” museum exhibits). I’ve seen it many times in person, and it’s a magical thing to see the toys from Toy Story come to life in front of your eyes. It’s also amazing to see this up close and look at all the various animations going on at the same time, and how they play off each other.

A video of the zoetrope has been making its way around the web this week, so I thought I’d share it. The video comes from one of Pixar’s many dvd/blu-ray releases, and features the animators and directors from the studio explaining how the zoetrope works, and how Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli inspired John Lassetter to create it. Hit the jump for the video.

US Postal Service To Release Pixar Stamps in 2011

The United States Postal Service announced today that they will release a series of Pixar image stamps in 2011.

Based on that success, the Postal Service was eager to work with the Walt Disney Company again, choosing to explore the Disney*Pixar films, which offer exciting, contemporary characters and strong themes involving family and friends. This pane of 20 stamps includes five different designs featuring Pixar characters: Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars (2006); Remy the rat and Linguini from Ratatouille (2007); Buzz Lightyear and two of the green, three-eyed aliens from Toy Story (1995); Carl Fredricksen and Dug from Up (2009); and the robot WALL*E from WALL*E (2008). Since the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature was introduced in 2001, all seven Pixar films released since that time have been nominated and five of the seven have won, including Ratatouille, WALL*E and Up.

I’ll need to buy some of these for my rare snail mail usage. The 2011 Disney/Pixar Send a Hello stamps will be released on August 19th 2011.
