My next Disney adventure takes me to San Francisco where I’ll be immersed in Disney’s latest animation- COCO. As part of a media/blogger group, I will spend time at Pixar Animation Studios in Emervyille where we will learn about the music, the research involved in creating the characters as well as the rich, colorful worlds of the dead as well as the living that reside in COCO!
What’s it like visiting Pixar Animation Studios? Follow @thatsitla to find out! If you are an animation junkie like me, it’s definitely an inspirational journey! I am one of the lucky ones who’s been there twice before and each visit has been unique and truly inspirational. What remains the same on the Pixar campus is the passion and creativity within their walls that is completely infectious. I can’t wait to meet the people behind COCO and screen 35 minutes of the film!
After we wrap up our visit to Pixar, we will head to the beautiful Walt Disney Family Museum dedicated to the life of Walt Disney. The museum is a must-see for all Disney fans with a beautiful collection of photos and memorabilia with breath-taking views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Here’s a summary of our itinerary. Please let me know if you have any specific questions regarding the process of the film:
