25 Weeks of Pixar: A Viewing Guide

0

2019 is going to be a huge year for Disney. We are getting reimagining’s for several classic Disney films, the conclusion of the Star Wars trilogy, and the end of the Avengers as we know it. However, we are also getting a Pixar film long in development: Toy Story 4. This movie takes us back to Pixar’s roots by being the third sequel to Pixar’s first film from 1995. The original Toy Story put Pixar on the map as a filmmaking company in the realm of computer animation and they as a company have continued to tell compelling stories ever since that first groundbreaking film.

Starting next week, from the first of January up until the release of Toy Story 4 in June, I will be revisiting all of the films, shorts, and specials that Pixar has made throughout the years. These 25 Weeks of Pixar will allow me, as well as all of you that follow The DisInsider, to be completely caught up to date with Pixar’s vast library from the last 24 years of Pixar films and the last 35 years of Pixar shorts. Every Sunday, I will be posting a weekly recap of what was viewed that last week. I am including the full 25-week schedule in this post so anyone who is interested can watch along with me. Be sure to tweet @TheDisInsider your thoughts on these weekly viewings or @josh_sharpe22 for my personal account! I have tried to make the viewing loads as equal as possible, but naturally there are some lighter and heavier weeks.

Happy new year and I am looking forward to watching Pixar with all of you!
