Set your TiVos! Tonight, April 22, at 10-11:30pm, Starz will air “The Pixar Story.”
Marc Bernardin reports for Entertainment Weekly, “Here’s the problem with this doc, which charts the birth, near-death, and explosion of the multiple-Oscar-winning animation studio: It will make you realize that your job sucks. Because unless you work for John Lasseter at the MIT–meets–Romper Room HQ, hatching hits like Toy Story and Cars, then you have no idea how rewarding a job can be. The vibrant doc includes interviews with big names integral to Pixar’s success: Tom Hanks, George Lucas (who funded Pixar, then sold it), and Steve Jobs (who bought it and kept the faith).”
