Footage from D23 Pixar Panel!

Even though it's already been a while since D23 Expo took place, I recently stumbled upon a really cool video with actual footage from the Question/Answer period with the Pixar "brain trust" panel from the event. And here's the best part: it has the whole entire event on camera. I'm sure all you Pixar fans who could not make it to the event would love watching this, as it shows pretty much all of Pixar's best (excluding Lee Unkrich, who was set to attend but, unfortunately, could not make it to the event at the last moment) and they talk a bit about some of Pixar's upcoming films, so I wouldn't miss out on that. Here's the down side: the video is about and hour and a half long, so it might feel like forever until you get caught up on everything from the panel, and since there's nothing like actually being there in person, it does lack that exhilarating feeling of being in the presence of some of the best film makers of our generation. But I do suggest you watch it, even if not all of it, or some of it today, the rest another day, but it's up to you.

And without further ado, here is the video:

Don't you just love the excited "whoot"s and applauses at the beginning?
