Our most recent episode of The Pixar Detectives was honestly a somber one, as we recorded just a day after the election. We used this timing as an opportunity to open up about our Pixar stories, specifically having to do with what the movies have done for our lives over the years in meaningful ways.
I’m fully aware, of course, that some might find this a bit frivolous. But I really believe that cinema (and stories at large) have a real impact on us. They inform and shape us in a lot of ways, especially early in life, and Pixar’s hand in our own upbringings is quite relevant for that reason, even though some of you may not have grown up with these movies in the same way.
That said, I hope you enjoy this episode we recorded live on Super News, and be sure to tune in to our next live episode tonight, which is all about Moana. We’ll be recording live from our exclusive screening of the film and will also be answering all of your spoiler-free questions after we’ve seen it. Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!
Be sure to like Super News on Facebook, so you can get notified when we go on the air (it will probably just after 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time). And if you watch live, you’ll be able to comment with us along the way and take part in our weekly giveaway (last week, we gave away a copy of Finding Dory on Blu-Ray).
Last week on The Pixar Detectives, I filmed Kayla Savage’s journey of Strange art, as she explained the unusual tactics that go into drawing Pixar characters, using Doctor Strange as a model. Turns out, there’s a method to Pixar’s madness.
The finished product is definitely pretty cool, and as always, I highly recommend you watch the show live whenever you can, since we do weekly giveaways and shoutouts. New episodes come every Wednesday at 7pm (Pacific) on Super News’ Facebook page.
Do you have an awesome episode idea for our live show? Or maybe a suggestion for giveaways we can dole out to you all? Let me know in the comments, and be sure to share with your friends if you like the show. This coming week is our 13th episode (which is crazy), and I’m itching to see what happens next.
In case you missed one of our other recent episodes, here’s our Halloween special, where we dressed as Riley and Riley’s Imaginary Boyfriend From Canada (can you guess who I was?) And before that, we had an Election Special, where we debated which Pixar character would be the best president.
Thanks for watching, and I hope we get to see you tonight!
