I Watched… (#6)

Luxo Jr. (1986)

This short and simple film was one of Pixar’s earliest films; made back in the days when the computers used for animation took up most of the desk and weighed as much as the humans in Wall-E.

Only a few minutes long and yet this film sets the tone for all the wonderful feature length and short films that Pixar have lovingly created since. A young lamp playing with a ball in Luxo Jr., watched over by his beleaguered father doesn’t seem like much but after watching all the Pixar films, you appreciate this short for all its worth.
