“We are over the moon to join forces with our friends at Pixar for this special PreVIEW panel,” commented conference director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez. “Meeting Angus MacLane and his creative team is a wonderful way to celebrate the launch of this much-anticipated film – and also to whet the appetite for our main conference program in October. I am sure everyone around the world will be eager to join us as we travel ‘to infinity and beyond!’”
