Fans are also invited to join top content creators like The Williams Family, Phil Wright, Merrick Hanna, and McKenzi Brooke in the first-ever Pixar-inspired challenge across TikTok and Instagram Reels recreating favorite character poses themed to Pixar’s iconic films.

Glee and Shadowhunters alum Harry Shum Jr., who is a huge Pixar fan, has joined the celebration saying: “I’m jazzed (dad joke) to help launch the second annual Pixar Fest and unveil an all-new dance and pose challenge as part of this year’s celebration. As someone who started their career as a dancer, my wife, Shelby, and I are stoked to help fans show their love of these iconic films through this fun challenge that pretty much anyone can do. I credit my lanky dancing to Woody from my favorite Pixar film, Toy Story, so I’ll be channeling him to hopefully bring some joy to families.”
