Continuing the streak that began with Tangled, Disney Animation’s next feature is also their first animated adaptation of a Marvel property, Big Hero 6. Not long ago, I was invited to spend a day at the studio with the artists behind this new film. We met the producer, directors, designers and artists, many of whom also worked on Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled.

Pixar provided a behind-the-scenes look at their next film, Inside Out, for a small audience in Los Angeles, exactly one year prior to its scheduled premiere date of June 19, 2015. The preview included a look at the opening five-minute sequence (much of it in the form of storyboard images), character and set designs, concept drawings, and some brief scenes from the film. The audience was also treated to a preview screening of Lava, the animated short that will accompany Inside Out in the theaters. Continue reading
