Beloved characters and soundtracks from Pixar Animation Studios’ films take center stage all summer long with “The Music of Pixar Live! – A Symphony of Characters” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney announced.
From May 26 – Aug. 27 in time for summer vacation season, Theater of the Stars will treat families to a celebration of the music, animation and characters of Pixar films. Featuring fun character moments and brilliant animated scenes on large video screens, a full orchestra performs selections of the stirring soundtracks from films such as “Toy Story,” “Up,” “Finding Nemo,” “Finding Dory,” “The Incredibles” and “Cars.”
Special video segments with the film’s composers take guests inside the scoring of a Pixar film. Their on-camera comments are backed by behind the scenes footage from Pixar, including orchestra recordings, story development, concept art and animation.
From the moment arriving guests are greeted by Green Army Men until the closing finale of You’ve Got a Friend in Me, in which the audience is encouraged to sing along, it’s a Pixar celebration like no other.
Throughout the show, beloved Pixar characters add moments of comedy and fun before their featured segment. As an example, Mike and Sulley take the stage to collect laughs as Mike tries stand-up before the “Monsters, Inc.” segment comes on-screen. Woody, Jessie and Buzz Lightyear unwrap the “Toy Story” segment and “Up” is fronted by a special appearance of Carl Fredricksen and Dug. Can’t forget Dory (though she might!) – appearing before the “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory” segment.
Showtimes will vary for “The Music of Pixar Live! – A Symphony of Characters.” Callers to 407-WDW-DINE can ask about dining packages to pair with the show.
