Exploring the way Pixar uses storytelling to empathize with its audience.
YouTuber Kristian Williams explores the popularity of Pixar films, investigating the way the animated film company is capable of producing family-friendly movies — not to be confused with kid-friendly — that transcend beyond younger audiences. This is achieved in the storytelling, empathizing with the audience on truths about the human condition rather than the production of what other competitors present as movies for children. Toy Story is one highlighted example: yes, the story is bout children’s toys but more than that, we see the complexities in characters such as Sid and of course Woody, who Williams argues is the antagonist that must learn how to accept change — as we all do.
