Academy Sets 20th Anniversary Tribute to "Toy Story" October 1st

Oscar winners John Lasseter and Ed Catmull will take the stage in a live panel discussion celebrating Toy Story – the world’s first entirely computer-animated feature film – on Thursday, October 1st, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. 
Actor-director Jon Favreau will moderate the panel, which will feature additional guests to be announced. 

Twenty years after they collaborated on the game-changing film, director Lasseter and producer Catmull will share behind-the-scenes stories about the challenges they faced as they imagined, invented and problem-solved their way into motion picture history.  

Tickets for Toy Story: 20 Years of Being an Animation Game-Changer are $5 for general admission and $3 for Academy members and students with a valid ID, and may be purchased online at starting September 16th.  The Samuel Goldwyn Theater is located at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills.
