Meet The 5 Major Characters From ‘Inside Out’

Inside Out - 5 Emotions

The premise of Pixar’s next feature film, Inside Out, is easily one of the most creative we have seen from the studio. The story takes place inside the mind of a young girl named Riley, where we will meet the five characters that represent her emotions: Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust, and Fear. Although the film’s plot surrounds Riley, the emotions will be the true main characters, led by Joy, described by director Pete Docter as the emotion most significant to Riley. Get to know all five emotions after the break! [Read more…]

PixArt: November Feature II – Fatherhood is Incredible

fatherhood_is_incredible-1

I must admit, when we approached artist Jeffrey Devey to contribute a piece to PixArt I didn’t predict we’d get something as charming as this! Jeffrey’s work on Dribbble is mostly graphic design. His appealing text treatments and icons didn’t prepare me for the greatness that he has presented to us here. A recent father himself, Jeffrey ‘s wonderful tribute to both The Incredibles and parenthood in general is a breath of fresh air. So sincere and sweet, I’m sure this will be a favorite among our readers. Our thanks to Jeffrey for taking the time to contribute this fantastic image! [Read more…]

Following the removal of Bob Peterson from the lead director position on Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, changes to the film’s story were expected.

‘Toy Story 4′ Officially Announced, Heading To Theaters In 2017

Toy Story

The Toy Story franchise is perhaps Pixar’s most important franchise. After all, it was the original Toy Story that launched the animation studio into the spotlight. In 2010, 15 years after the first film, Toy Story 3 concluded the trilogy, and was only the third ever animated film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. In the years since, we have seen a mixture of Toy Story shorts and TV specials, but the question of whether we would ever see a fourth film remained. That has been answered today, as Toy Story 4 has been officially announced. Find more details after the break! [Read more…]
