Kori Rae on life inside Pixar and new film Onward
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work at Pixar? BALANCE certainly has. We chat with Pixar producer Kori Rae, who has seen her career flourish at the beloved animation studio. Kori has worked on some of Pixar’s tentpole pieces, with the latest – Onward – set to be yet another mega-smash.
The film stars Tom Holland, Chris Pratt and Julia Louis Dreyfus as a suburban family struggling with grief yet united by love. And, this being Pixar, there is a delicious twist: this is a family of elves, with the film is set in a magical realm. That means brothers Holland and Pratt must team up and go on a quest with a view to bringing back their dad… And we will say no more than that!
Onward is in cinemas now.

To the uninitiated, in each episode, deputy editor James Gill (occasionally joined by founder/editor Sophie Scott) chats with luminaries from entertainment, wellness, sport, business and beyond about how to optimise health, happiness and performance. And should you want to rate it five stars, we’d be very grateful.
