      It would be incredible! There’s two great documentaries – “Waking Sleeping Beauty” and “The Pixar Story” which focus on the Renaissance for Disney in the late 80’s/early 90’s, and the rise of Pixar respectively – both are fascinating, it’s great to see how such creative minds banded together to make such wonderful films 🙂
