With the help of visionary businessman Steve Jobsand animating genius John Lasseter, Pixar has become the gold standard ofanimated filmmaking, beginning with a short special effects shot made atLucasfilm in 1982 all the way up through the landmark films Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, andothers. David A. Price goes behind the scenes of the corporate feuds betweenLasseter and his former champion, Jeffrey Katzenberg, as well as between Steve Jobsand Michael Eisner.
