'The Pixar Treasures' is a scrapbook that presents the history of Pixar Studio. It began with a group of animators who were inspired by Walt Disney films. In the late 1970s and early '80s, John Lasseter, Brad Bird, and Joe Ranft were hired into an apprenticeship program at Walt Disney Productions. The last of Disney's golden age artists, including animators Eric Larson, Milt Kahl, Frank Thomas, and Ollie Johnston mentored the young dreamers, and as Pixar later developed, their work would draw from this direct connection with Walt Disney's 'Nine Old Men.' The tale continues with Pixar's foray into computer animation, and the resulting success of Toy Story. With chapters on A Bug's Life; Monsters, Inc.; Finding Nemo; The Incredibles; Cars; Ratatouille; and WALL*E, Hauser's narrative covers the struggles, growth, and successes of an animation studio. And it gives readers a sneak peak at Disney*Pixar film, Up. Filled with removable keepsakes, 'The Pixar Treasures' is a collector's item for Pixar fans.
