Fans will have the chance to attend screenings of Disney-Pixar favourites ‘The Incredibles,’ ‘Wall-E,’ ‘A Bug’s Life’ and ‘Toy Story 3’ – which have not been seen on the big screen since their original release.

Collect your ticket stubs from all four movies and insert them in your Pixar Passport. Once your Pixar Passport is fully complete, all you have to do is attend a screening of ‘Brave’ (in IMC or Omniplex) from August 3rd and you will receive a free Passport To Pixar pack featuring a special Explorer’s certificate, a ‘Brave’ poster, a ‘Brave’ souvenir and a Kids’ Club munch box.

On the big screen for a limited time only and exclusive to IMC and OMNIPLEX cinemas are:

THE INCREDIBLES

Released in 2004, ‘The Incredibles’ is a hilarious action-packed animated adventure about superheroes. Bob Paar used to be one of the world’s greatest superheroes (known to all as “Mr. Incredible”), saving lives and fighting evil on a daily basis. But now, fifteen years later, Bob and his wife (a famous former superhero in her own right) have adopted civilian identities and retreated to the suburbs to live normal lives with their three kids. Now he’s a clock-punching insurance claims adjuster fighting boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret assignment.

WALL-E

After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, robot ‘WALL-E’ (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVEcomes to realise that ‘WALL-E’ has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, ‘WALL-E’ chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. ‘WALL-E’ deservedly won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year in 2009.

A BUG’S LIFE

‘A Bug’s Life, ’  originally released in Irish cinemas in 1999, is the sweetly told story of Flik (voiced by David Foley), an ant searching for better ways to be a bug. His colony unfortunately revolves around feeding and fearing the local grasshoppers (lead by Hopper, voiced with gleeful menace by Kevin Spacey). When Flik accidentally destroys the seasonal food supply for the grasshoppers he decides to look for help .The ants, led by Princess Atta (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), are eager to dispose of the troublesome Flik. Yet he finds help from a hearty bunch of bug warriors and brings them back to the colony. Unfortunately they are just traveling performers afraid of conflict.

TOY STORY 3

‘Toy Story 3’ welcomes Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the whole gang back to the big screen as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in…day care! But the untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice, so it’s all for one and one for all as plans for the great escape get underway. More than a few new faces—some plastic, some plush—join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie’s counterpart, Ken (voice of Michael Keaton); a lederhosenwearing thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants (voice of Timothy Dalton); and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear (voice of Ned Beatty). ‘Toy Story 3’ was the number one movie of the year in Ireland in 2010.
