Toy Story 3:
-In their most productive week of production, Pixar completed 3.5 minutes of animation.
– Buzz’s original name was supposed to be Lunar Larry
– Originally, Bo Peep was supposed to be a Barbie doll.
– Barbie and Ken’s outfits are modeled after real life dolls
After seeing three of the animators at Pixar come to Columbia to speak last year, I am fascinated by the fact that the studio is so incestuous. Many of them attended the same school, and were even taught by the same professors. Andy, for example, is named after Brown University professor Andy Van Dam, who taught many of the staff members on this film.
