PICTORIAL: ‘Pixar Shorts Film Festival’ lands with concept art, maquettes, and adorable screentime
The Sunset Showcase Theatre at Disney California Adventure is now home to the Pixar Shorts Film Festival for the duration of Pixar Fest. What will you find? A 16-minute presentation in which three classic Pixar shorts are shown (For the Birds, Lava, and Piper). In the main lobby, you’ll find a nice display with concept art and maquettes for the three shorts as well as others. There’s also a great slideshow in the lobby which rotates through concept art for other Pixar shorts.
The shorts are shown in 3D and there’s very subtle use of some of the theaters built-in effects, primarily the wind and water effects. I wish the lobby display was more robust considering the volume of features available it seems A LOT more could have been done to really make this attraction more of a must-see for Pixar Fest.
Still, it’s a nice escape from the heat and there’s no denying the charm of those three shorts!
