Pixar: 30 years of Animation

For their 30th anniversary, Pixar Studios revisits the creative processes behind their most beloved animated films. An artistic and playful event.

In 1986, John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, and Steve Jobs established Pixar Animation Studios. Since then, its legend has continued to grow. The incredible success of Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and others has been possible through technological advances that they themselves have instigated. The talent of their animators is extraordinary and Pixar has as many artists who work on traditional drawings as digital specialists working on computer animation. Here you can see sketches, paintings, storyboards, scripts, and models, and you'll be able to imagine just how long and complicated the development of these films can be. Inaugurated in 2005 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the exhibit has travelled throughout the world before arriving in Tokyo, another temple of animation. For this Japanese adventure, Pixar added several items that have not yet been seen elsewhere.
