The Music of Pixar Live! overview

Here is a first look at “The Music of Pixar Live! – A Symphony of Characters,” opening tomorrow at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The summer-long stage show will take place from May 26 to August 27 2017, featuring fun character moments and 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,” although for its opening weekend, shows will be at 5pm, 6:45pm and 8:15pm.

"The Music of Pixar Live! - A Symphony of Characters" will take place in the Theater of the Stars on Sunset Blvd, where Beauty and the Beast will continue to play during the daytime.

Dining Packages including reserved seating for the show are also available.
