Approximately 500 pieces of art will be on display, selected from various films including "Toy Story" (released in Japan in 1996), the studio's first fully computer animated feature film and its most recent film "The Good Dinosaur".

About

In 1986, John Lasseter, Ed Catmull and Steve Jobs founded Pixar Animation Studios in California, U.S.A. It has been 30 years since then - an epic period of time in which the studio has enjoyed incredible success and created such beloved films as "Toy Story", "Finding Nemo", "Inside Out" and "The Good Dinosaur" which continue to be loved by people all over the world.
As the studio knows well, emotions are not moved by the superior technological achievements of computer animation alone. More than anything, it is the unique stories and memorable characters that fans embrace. Surprisingly, Pixar has almost as many artists working in traditional media-hand drawing, painting, pastels, sculpture-as they do in digital media to create these incredible worlds. Most of this work takes place during the development of a project, when the filmmakers are working out the story and the look of the film, but it is integral to the overall process.
This exhibition includes hand-drawn sketches, paintings, storyboards, colorscripts, and maquettes (character models) created by the studio's artists, as they participate in each film's development process.
The exhibition began at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2005 and has traveled around the world since then. It comes to Japan in 2016 with new and never before seen pieces, added in celebration of Pixar's 30th anniversary.
