The official date of issuance for the Mail a Smile (Forever®) stamps is less than two weeks away! These stamps, featuring Disney•Pixar characters—like Boo, Mike Wazowski, and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan from Monsters, Inc. (2001)—are an easy, fun way to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Inspired by memories of childhood fears, director Pete Docter and co-directors Lee Unkrich and David Silverman took audiences into a witty world where hard-working monsters like James P. Sullivan (Sulley) and his assistant Mike Wazowski scare children to harvest the energy in their screams and believe that human children are frighteningly “toxic.”
Using breakthrough computer technology, animators created an entirely imaginative yet believable world for monsters to live and work in. They also took the characters’ movements and expressions to a whole new level of perfection, including the great challenge of animating fur (and Sulley’s 2,320,413 hairs!). The delightfully imaginative tale delivered larger-than-life entertainment that earned it four Oscar nominations, including Best Animated Feature Film, Best Sound Editing, and Best Original Score, and an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Since 1995, Pixar Animation Studios has won 29 Academy Awards. Responsible for almost every major breakthrough in computer animation, the company continues to reset the bar in technology with every film.
These bright, lovable stamps will be issued on Friday, June 1, at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort in Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Attendance is free and open to the public, but you must RSVP by today!: http://www.rsvptrack.com/pixarstamps/. Will you be joining us for this magical event?
