Editorial Reviews

Review

"Truly written with a young audience in mind, this hefty, encyclopedia-style tome is jam-packed with beautifully reproduced movie images presented in stunning large-size format or artfully arranged in eye-catching layouts along with brief explanatory narrative and captions. The book begins with a summary of the company's creation, a step-by-step flow chart of how Pixar movies are made, and a time line. Next, each Pixar film (including Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, Wall-E, Up, and more) is introduced in a sizable entry that covers plot basics, characters, and settings. Final spreads cull from all of the movies to highlight various themes (e.g., friendship, villains, etc.) and present behind-the-scenes facts about each production. Brief bios and photos of real Pixar employees are sprinkled throughout, inspiring future filmmakers. With plenty of visuals to look at and lots of interesting tidbits to discover, this is one of those reference works that will draw kids into the library again and again to explore its pages." --School Library Journal, September 21, 2009

"[A] lavish, full-color, kid-friendly roundup of everything Pixar. It ranges from a brief history of the company to hints on finding the inside jokes and references in each Pixar film -- and everything else in-between! In fact, calling it "A Complete Guide to the World of Pixar... And Beyond!" may actually be selling it a bit short. ... Many of these spreads are poster-worthy! [O]ne of the best coffee-table books ever produced for an audience too young for coffee." --ComicsWorthReading.com, October 3, 2009

Pixarpedia is the ultimate visual companion for all the Pixar movies and shorts, from Toy Story to the latest Up. It's filled with details like character bios, fun facts and story arcs. It even includes characters that weren't named in movies, like the multiple cars from Cars and utility robots (and rejects) from WALL-E, and a whole lot more.

The layout of the book is beautiful and high resolution pictures are used throughout. This is a book made for fans who can't get enough of Pixar goodness.

(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

If your a Pixar Fan, this is a must have. The pages are filled with screen shots of all the different movies and characters. If your interested in more of the process of how Pixar makes their movies, then you need to look at the individual "Making of" books for more in depth, behind the scenes action. Being an encyclopedia of Pixar I would have hoped to learn a bit more about the people and process from Pixar. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool book to look at, and there are a few pages about the people and process. But it is about the movies, mainly.

This is an awesome book. The layout and design of this book is done extremely well. Packed full of images, movie stills, character art, & poster art this book gives fans of all ages a behind-the-scenes description and analysis of PIXAR films. Featuring movie facts, film plots as well as character bios, this 350 page book is an excellent guide to the world of PIXAR. PIXAR shot films are also included in this book such as, One Man Band, Mike's New Car, Presto, Lifted, Mater and the Ghostlight and more! Although this book is written at a young adult age level, it is a must have for any PIXAR fan.

Format: Hardcover
Wonderful picture book for the kid in all of us, but be advised that the shown cover version is the 2009 US DK release, whereas a newer UK release (Sept. 2010) is 376 pages (24 pages longer, vs 352 total pages.) Not sure why there wasn't coordinated release here in the states as well? Would be a minor quibble, only except the update includes Toy Story 3, Pixar's flagship franchise and most moving film to date. The 2009 Pixarpedia only briefly mentions TS3. The content is definitely five stars, one star less for DK's U.S. publishing and marketing strategy. Website gives no indication of when the updated American release is forthcoming. Great book otherwise, and well worth the list price. The UK version is considerably more, unfortunately.

PIXARPEDIA is a labor of love. Not only does it document PIXAR's first 10 feature films, but every short in between. With a complete listing of characters and trivia on each film and an insiders look to working in the Toybox of a studio, PIXARPEDIA is a great insight for those not so well versed in all that is PIXAR and even for those that can't get enough. Here's to nine more volumes.
