Ever wondered how your favorite animated movies such as Toy Story and Inside Out came to life? World-renowned animation studio Pixar lets you get a glimpse into its studios with an animation progression reel from 2017 film Coco.
Coco follows 12-year-old Miguel who is accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, where he seeks help from his musician great-great-grandfather to return to his family.
Watch as the movie takes shape from simple sketches to the final cut. From storyboarding to special effects, you’ll be able to see how each layer of artwork is formed.
By adding more details with every layer, characters and backdrops become more intricate, slowly turning into the picture we enjoy in the cinemas.
With so many elements to each scene, it’s no wonder a single film can take years to put together. But as Pixar puts it, “the result is pure cinematic magic.”
