Pixar Animation Studios will be paying a tribute to former Apple CEO and one of the co-founders of the company, Steve Jobs.
According to The Wall Street Journal, strange supernatural characters named will-o’-the-wisps hover around the Apple founder’s name being praised as a guide and a friend to the company in the ending credits of Brave. Will-o’-the-wisps are mysterious balls of light that are said to be a variety of spirits, including those of mischievous faeries, demons, and those of stillborn or unbaptized children.
These creatures are featured in the animated film as blue orbs in which Merida, the female protagonist, encounters along her journey across the Scottish landscape.
Jobs purchased Pixar when it was referred to as the Graphics Group in 1986 and helped to mold the company into what it is today while serving as its CEO. In 2006, The Walt Disney Company acquired Pixar for $7.4 billion and Jobs became the largest shareholder of Disney stock. Brave is the first film to be released since his death.
However, it is not the last film to pay a tribute to the late Apple co-founder. Ashton Kutcher is set to play the role of Jobs in the independent biographical film Jobs and Sony is currently working on a film about Steve Jobs written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network). The film will also be based upon the best-selling biography written by Walter Isaacson.
The real Jobs can currently be seen in the limited release Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, featuring a 1995 conversation with him.
For those who wish to relive an earlier time before his passing, it is possible to see Jobs in the limited release entitled Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, which showcases an interview from 1995.
