 Boy, never did I dream that making a flip book out of my third grade math book would lead to this. Boy. It's incredible being here, it's just me right now, but please picture this whole stage full of the most amazing cast and crew you've ever experienced. Jonas Rivera, producer. Bob Peterson, co-director. You guys should all be up here with me. Thanks so much to Disney and to Pixar Animation Studios for believing in this oddball film.
