VOTD: ‘25 Years of Pixar’

We’ve featured a handful of director montages here on /Film recently, and while this “25 Years of Pixar” compilation isn’t quite that, it’s actually pretty similar. In terms of look, tone, and quality, I’d say Pixar is as consistent as many directors.

For the video, NkMcDonalds pulled scenes from works spanning over decades — from ’80s shorts to this year’s Cars 2. If you like Pixar as much as I do, it’ll definitely make you smile and it might even make you tear up a little tiny bit. Watch it after the jump.

We don’t often post clips or teaser trailers for short films, but we can make an exception for Pixar. The new Toy Story short, Hawaiian Vacation, will play in front of Cars 2 when that feature opens on June 24. The first look at the short, which shows what happens when Bonnie’s family goes on vacation without her toys, is after the break. Read More »

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.
