The Pixar Story

Sitting at home? Unwrapped all your presents, eaten all the food you can eat? I recommend watching The Pixar Story. I love stories of smart people struggling for technological change, and this story certainly delivers. Pixar might seem like an overnight success, but there was plenty of drama: Lasseter got fired from Disney, and had to leave Lucasfilm where George Lucas didn't see the point of what he wanted to do. Even Toy Story almost got killed multiple times.

Chances are you won't even have to buy this: The Pixar Story is included on most Wall-E DVDs, and most Netflix members can watch it online here. Happy Holidays!
