Animated Pixar Ball Takes Fans on a Video Tour of the Emeryville Animation Studio

Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, CA just released a quick video tour of their campus hosted by a 2D animated Pixar Ball.

What’s Happening:

  • Follow the bouncing Pixar Ball around Pixar Animation Studios through a new stop-motion short video released on Pixar’s YouTube channel.
  • The video introduces fans to several Pixar employees, including a few that Disney+ subscribers may recognize from the new series Inside Pixar.
  • Pixar employees featured in the video include:
    • Gini Santos – Animator
    • Adrian Maruri – Recording Engineer
    • Liz Gazzano – Executive Producer, Theme Parks
    • Stephanie Kelly & Rachelle Frederico – Production Assistants
    • Staphon Arnold – Studio Store Assistant
    • Marylou Jasso – Pastry Chef
    • Christine Freeman – Senior Historian
  • Based on the presence of Toy Story 4 decor in the atrium, which was switched to Onward before the studio stitched to at-home production, in March of 2020, the video appears to have been made sometime in 2019.
  • The entire library of Pixar films and shorts is streaming on Disney+, along with a few exclusives you’ll only find there.
