VIDEO: Fan-created video showcasing Pixar’s tribute to classic cinema

in Disney, Movies, Pixar

Pixar is known for leaving audiences wanting more. Painting colorful stories that draw viewers in is what they do best. One aspect overlooked by many, though, is their ability to reference to classic cinema in almost each and every film.

Recently a fan compiled Pixar clips side-by-side with what seemed to be the inspiration behind the shot, with films from classic cinema.


This remarkable video essay, created by Jorge Luengo Ruiz, collects many subtle references in one video, showing us clips from Jurassic Park, Mission Impossible, Star Wars, The Shining, and Indiana Jones, that Pixar has creatively worked into their storylines.

    I love this but is anyone able to tell me what the first song is and where is it from? I know it from somewhere but I can’t remember.

      Wall-E, I believe, is what the first song is from.
