To Infinity and Beyond!

To Infinity and Beyond! Buzz Lightyear's motto is a fitting quote for a book on the history of Pixar Animation Studios. Toy Story was Pixar's first feature film, but their subsequent movies have really brought the art of animation into the 21st century. Pixar would be an awesome place to work because they produce an outstanding product and it seems like their employees really enjoy themselves. The office space doesn't look so bad, either. I'm excited to read the book so that I can learn more about Pixar and hopefully find out how some of my favorite movies (Nemo, Monsters Inc.) were conceived and developed. The book is a steep $51 on Amazon preorder, but that will get you a hefty 320 page tome of Pixar trivia. Unfortunately, it won't be out until the end of October, but we can look forward to seeing Ratatouille this summer while we wait. Via Luxo
