My Day At Pixar (And Early Thoughts on ‘Inside Out’)

pixar inside out

Last week, I had the opportunity to visit Pixar for two days and watch the first 56 minutes of Inside Out. It’s been a lot to process, but I’ve condensed the experience into a post you can read here:

Behind-the-Scenes First Look at Inside Out, INSIDE Pixar Headquarters!

It was a great experience, and I had the chance to chat with Pete Docter, Jonas Rivera, Tony Fucile, and many others. I also saw a screening for the new short, LAVA, which will be paired with Inside Out.

My early thoughts on the movie is that it is a huge step forward for Pixar in terms of narrative. Docter and Rivera have crafted something really special with Inside Out, and I have little doubt it’s going to be a huge success for the studio. The world they’ve created for this movie is more rich, detailed, and inventive than anything the studio has put out so far. I felt like I was stepping into a world built by George R.R. Martin, the author of A Game of Thrones. 

It’s funny. It’s emotional. And it’s fun. I can’t wait to see the whole thing. Once the movie comes out, and you all have a chance to see it, we can talk about how it fits into the Pixar Theory and all of that. But for now, I just want to bask in the fact that Pixar is coming out with another winner.

    1. Jim Murphy pulled inspiration from a lot of different sources. But the original idea came from his trips to Hawaii as a child and when he went there on his honeymoon. The passion he has for that culture is pretty transparent.


      1. That’s interesting. The story of those two volcanos is a great love story. When I read it was a love story between two volcanos that’s the first thing that came to mind. I figured it was from the Mexican Legend. I wonder if he knew about that.


  1. I don’t think any of Inside Out’s competition would stand a chance when it comes out, not even Jurassic World. Now I am more looking forward to see Inside Out instead of Jurassic World.

    PS Any Pixar Theory related stuff you saw in there?
