Disney has gotten a lot of things right with their new streaming service, but perhaps one of their strongest showings has come in the form of their original, behind-the-scenes programming such as the recent Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom series; The Imagineering Story; Disney Gallery/Star Wars: The Mandalorian; Inside Disney; or Prop Culture. Kicking off tomorrow (November 13) is a brand new how-it-happens series that will allow you to pull back the curtain on the workings Inside Pixar.
Similar to the original One Day At Disney program that provided short glimpses of the people bringing you the magic around the Disney empire, the Inside Pixar documentary series is arranged in a set of four themed collections, each featuring five short stories, with individual episodes ranging from 9-11 minutes long. The first collection, dropping on Friday, is labelled “Inspired,” and the segments focus on Soul’s co-director Kemp Powers, character designer Deanna Marsigliese, director Steven Hunter, script supervisor Jessica Heidt, and director Dan Scanlon. The Inside Pixar episodes are directed by Erica Milsom and Tony Kaplan.
Disney calls this show, “A documentary series of personal and cinematic stories that provide an inside look into the people, artistry, and culture of Pixar Animation Studios.”
Pixar is the ground-breaking studio behind more than two dozen creative films such as the Toy Story franchise; Inside Out; Up; Cars; Monsters, Inc.; The Incredibles; Ratatouille; Finding Nemo; Coco; Onward; and the soon-to-debut Soul (December 25, direct to Disney+).
