Interview with Meet The Robinsons Author William Joyce

Born in Shreveport Louisiana, Meet the Robinsons author William Joyce has returned home to open an exhibit featuring characters from his story, "A Day With Wilbur Robinson", and the Disney film.

"I can’t tell you anything that happens in
this movie, because it will ruin it," Joyce laughed while touring his
new exhibition at artspace, "The Art of Disney’s ‘Meet the Robinsons.’"

"You don’t really realize how much of a Rubik’s Cube it is until the
cube starts falling into place," he said. He later conceded the movie
involves time travel to an elaborate future world, lots of inventions,
and one of the coolest families in the world.

Joyce also executive produced the film.

People who see the movie and walk through the exhibit at artspace will learn about the movie’s strong design influences, like 1939 New York World’s Fair and the Futurism movement in industrial design from the 1930s and 1940s.

"There is so much about this (movie) that was about that wonder of technology that people had in the 1920s and ’30s," Joyce said.

The more I read about this movie the more I want to go see it. But surprisingly I know very little about the plot of the film. That’s usually a good sign.
