Fun Fact Friday- Eve (from Wall-E)

Fun Fact-  Did you know that the character Eve from Wall-E was designed in part by the same person who designed the iPod, the iPhone, and iMac!

“I wanted Eve to be high-end technology – no expense spared – and I wanted it to be seamless and for the technology to be sort of hidden and subcutaneous,” Andrew Stanton, Wall-E’s director, told Fortune. “The more I started describing it, the more I realized I was pretty much describing the Apple playbook for design.”

Andrew Stanton began working on the ideas for the movie in 2005 and asked Steve Jobs (Apple CEO and majority shareholder of Pixar at the time) for consultation work, and Steve sent him Johnathan Ive.

Ive is a quiet man, but consulted and worked with Stanton on the design, offering his suggestions.  So the man who brought us groundbreaking designs like the iPod and iPhones has placed his thumbprint on a small piece of Disney history.



30 Day Disney Challenge- Day 24 “Favorite Pixar Movie”

Confessions of a Mouskaholic's 30 Day Disney Challenge

Confessions of a Mouskaholic’s 30 Day Disney Challenge

Pixar gets its own category away favorite “animated” movie because it just deserves a category unto itself.  Its hard to believe that Toy Story is 20 years old this year!  That just blows my mind!  But Pixar has been carefully and deliberately and creatively producing hits for 20 years now, and each are special in their own way.


Finding Nemo is my favorite Pixar movie.  I fell in love with the film the very first time I watched it.  The characters are lovable, the story line is terrific, and it is just a feel good movie.  I loved it so much that I watched it 3 or 4 times in the span of a few days when I first got the movie on DVD.  I am anxiously looking forward to Finding Dory, which is set to come out in June 2016.

Fun Fact Friday- Finding Nemo’s Bruce

Fun Fact- Everyone’s favorite “vegetarian” shark from Finding Nemo’s name is Bruce.  The name Bruce came from the mechanical shark used in the movie Jaws.  If you want to go back even farther the mechanical shark was actually named after Steven Spielberg’s lawyer Bruce Ramer.
