Double Post: What is A113? + New Pixar Parade Coming Soon!

There are two things included in this post today (hence the title "Double Post").

First off, I wanted to explain what "A113" is to anyone who doesn't know. A113 was the number of John Lasseter's classroom when he attended CalArts (California Institute of the Arts), a college founded by Walt Disney that specializes in teaching film making, animation, and more. As you may have heard before, John Lasseter is the Chief Creative Officer at Pixar and Disney. A113 has appeared in every single Pixar movie to date. For example, in the Toy Story films it appears as the licence plate on Andy's mom's van. If you're not so sure, look again. Most of the time, however, the code is quite tricky to find. You can also check out this video, where Chatter Telephone tells you all about this mysterious code.

Second, The Disney Parks Blog tells us that a new Pixar-themed parade is coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World on January 16, 2011. This new parade will include the characters from Up and Ratatouille along with other Pixar favorites and it will replace Block Party Bash.

That's all for today, but Pixar is always up to something new and exciting, so keep coming back here for more cool news on everything Pixar.
