FromToy Story to The Good Dinosaur, some of the most iconic and hilarious moments in Pixar's films were first conceived by the artists featured in this book. But there are hundreds of gags that don't make it past the cutting room floor, like Mater as a ninja and Sadness wearing mom jeans. Funny! explores this material in depth, showcasing classic moments from all of Pixar's films to date, plus never-before-published illustrations and doodles from the Pixar archives. With an introduction by veteran story man Jason Katz, this book is a must-have for any Pixar fan.
"The drawings, doodles and storyboards in the book reveal the moment a spark of an idea takes shape and turns into something the world can enjoy. So, this is funny, spiritual, and smart. The delightful illustrations give a hint at Pixar's own unique creative process and identity. So, no need to add words to them. They speak for themselves easily, and it is rather pleasant to read it one or two pages at a time, just to start a hard work day. It both nourishes our admiration for Pixar's story department and our pleasure to discover all these gems made at last available to the public. If you are a Pixar fan or simply want a book that blends art and humor, this one is for you!"-Animated Views
