The story of Pixar at Amsterdam Expo


Last weekend we went to Amsterdam  for the "Pixar, 25 years of animation" exposition. It shows, through numerous sketches, the story of Pixar since its beginnings. We enjoyed the exposition, but to be honest we thought it was a bit pricey, at EUR 19 per person.


I think hardcore fans would be pleased, as you see tons and tons of drawings. I found interesting that you could see different versions of a character... admiring the behind-the-scenes process that goes on to choose the final drafts. There are also models, clay figures, and my favorite a Zoetrope that brought the characters of Toy Story to life in 3 dimensions.


You can visit the exposition at the Amsterdam EXPO buiding (Gustav Mahlerlaan 24
1082 MC in Amsterdam), near the Amsterdam Zuid train station until October 27, 2013.

  1. 19EUR is a bit steep! But it does look like fun

  2. Sí fue caro, aunque como dices, para los fans de Pixar lo vale. A mí me gustaría enterarme de todo el proceso para hacer sus películas, que todo lo hecho por Pixar me encanta. Igual este tipo de exposiciones son oportunidades que no se presentan muy seguido.

    1. Sí, eso pensamos, que valía la pena porque en cierta forma era algo raro de ver.

  3. I love the hand drawn cartoons. There is a store in Disney that sells these for disney sketches. Either you can pay $25 to have them do a quick one for you, or you can pay $250 for an actual sketch. Of course I wanted the real thing. But I couldn't rationalize spending that much...

    1. I was hoping they would have some reproductions for sale, as my little sis is a hardcore fan and it would have been perfect for her home, but sadly they didn't have any.
      And I get you, I would like the real deal, but that's a lot of money.
      Anyhow at the exposition, not everything there was original and even the reproductions were pretty good.
