"Hey Mike"

"Hey Mike" is an award winning short film that grew out of a comedy sketch, which was developed and performed live at The Groundlings and Second City LA.

Old Animation Building: FINALLY, Walt's original office that he used up until his death, will be restored to the exact condition (including furniture and personal belongings) it was in when he roamed these halls. Through the years the office was given to producers and directors with deals at Disney. Some who were very respectfull of the world they were occupiyng…others, not so much. The last inhabitant wouldn't let them use the office to film Saving Mr. Banks​. He wouldn't even allow them to use it for reference. Pretty much the last straw for the studio, who are doing what should have been done years ago. A living monument to the man who built this place and changed an entire industry. I spoke with one of the workers who was hauling a big bag of plaster and he said, "I get the chills sometimes when I'm working in there". Wouldn't we all...

"Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue"

This trailer is just the tip-of-the-iceberg of what this film has become! We're really looking forward to having it released this time next year! We knew when Award winning actor, Michael Sheen ('Frost/Nixon' and 'The Queen'), joined the already all-star cast, this would be a special project. Thanks to John Lasseter, Andrew Millstein, Brad Raymond and all of the incredibly talented people at Disney...and of course Pixar! Release date, Fall 2010!
