Chris told Disney: ‘The phrase “a dream come true” gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life,’ says Evans.

‘Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else. 

‘Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.’
