The Music of Pixar Live! Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The Music of Pixar Live! closed on August 27, 2017


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.


From May 26 to August 27, 2017, Theater of the Stars will be home 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."

Guests are greeted by Green Army Men from Toy Story as they enter the theater.

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.

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.

Music of Pixar

The finale is Toy Story's You've Got a Friend in Me, during which the audience is encouraged to sing along as a number of Pixar characters join in on the stage.
