This jaunty time-lapse video shows an Alaska Airlines come to life with the popular Toy Story characters as it becomes the latest flying billboard for entertainment giant Disney.

The themed aircraft sporting Pixar characters such as Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie is Alaska’s sixth painted plane in collaboration with Disney.

It advertises Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure Park and the bright design was produced by teams at the airline and the Toy Story creators.

The Boeing 737-800 began flying throughout Alaska’s route network on October 7 and will be a fixture for some time.

The plane’s exterior required more than 2,800 work hours over 24 days using more than 50 gallons of paint.

There are 44 primary colors and custom shades in the paint job which was applied in Victorville, California.

Alaska is not the only airline to unveil Disney-themed aircraft. Virgin Atlantic and LATAM both recently unveiled Star Wars livery.
