The Art of Onward Panel & Book Signing
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 14, 2pm-5pm
FREE Admission | All Ages Welcome

Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney and Pixar’s “Onward” introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new original feature film is directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae—the team behind “Monsters University.” “Onward” releases in theaters on March 6, 2020.

On Saturday, March 14, 2020 (2PM), make your way to Gallery Nucleus for a special panel presentation & art book signing with artists from “Onward”. We are joined by Story Artist Le Tang, Character Designer/Visual Development Artist Maria Yi, and Author Drew Taylor.

Bring your questions for the Q&A session and meet the artists one-on-one as they sign copies of the new book The Art of Onward.

Behind the Scenes of Toy Story 4: “Bo Peep Gets Lost: How Pixar Found the Heart of Toy Story 4

Advances in technology allowed animators to incorporate richer details. For example, a cracking glaze was used in Bo’s hair, Krampfert said, “to remind the audience she is porcelain.”

Directing animator Patty Kihm explained, “From the start, we could have fudged it and pretended she had been plastic the whole time. Maybe the audience wouldn’t have remembered. But we thought it’s easier to embrace this weakness, or this delicacy of hers, and see how that would change her character.”
