While you’re there… ask them to bring their show on the road to Orlando. I’m sure we can find a spare theater somewhere on the Disney World property, or nearby. Heck, I can come up with a place that will hold 120 for free.

More details on the film are below the cut

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. 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 takes viewers on a dramatic journey filled with personal sacrifice and passionate belief in the possibilities of a new medium as Pixar Animation Studios is born. 


John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, Steve Jobs, Roy E. Disney, George Lucas, Michael Eisner, Bob Iger, Leonard Maltin, Tom Hanks, Billy Crystal, Tim Allen, Diane Disney Miller, Alan Kaye, Ron Clements, John Musker, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, Brad Bird and more.
