Book Review: Pixarpedia (DK Books)

In February 1986 Pixar was founded. At first, Pixar was just producing computer animated shorts, but 1995, they released their first full length feature film, Toy Story. From there on, Pixar has created 10 animated films and continues to be the leader in computer animation.

DK has released a book celebrating Pixar entitled Pixarpedia: A Complete Guide To The World Of Pixar...And Beyond!

The book goes into great detail about each movie. It has character backgrounds, detailed locations, and other interesting facts. The first chapter deals with all the movies, and the second chapter takes your further beyond the scenes of each movie. Actually getting inside the creator minds.

One of my favorite parts of the Behind Scenes chapters is how the book points out which character John Ratzanberger played in each movie. It's hilarious to think that he has become a Pixar staple.

The pure level of detail in this book makes it a very entertaining read. With colorful pictures and easy to follow explanations, this book is great for any age level.

Like all the visual dictionaries from DK, this one doesn't disappoint.

Definitely a must buy for the Pixar fan in your family. It's the perfect movie companion.
