Pixar Filter for Your Phone: Let’s Get It! Main Image

Pixar filter has been the freshest craze lately on Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat. We’ll show you how to get it.

What could complement your selfie gallery better than your portrait in a signature Disney style? Now you can get facial features similar to Elsa, Moana, Aladdin, Buzz Lighyear, or the entire The Incredibles cast, easy-peasy.

The new feature has been checked almost 2 billion times already since it was launched. And we’ll show you how to use it for your own esthetical or fun purposes.


Here’s what to do:

  • Go to the camera screen.
  • Tap the smiling face icon.
  • A search bar will pop up.
  • Tap Cartoon to evoke the Cartoon 3D Style Lens.

A little nuance: on Snapchat, the feature is classified as a filter. Technically, it’s a lens, and there’s a whole trifecta of those available in Snapchat. Every single one of them makes your face cartoony, so feel free to experiment.

A key difference from a common filter is that a lens allows you to employ it in real-time. So, if you make a video call on Snapchat or stream a live video, you can apply the lens and present yourself as a kooky character from a Pixar cartoon.


Instagram hasn’t integrated the lens into its repertoire yet. So, you won’t be able to use the lens in real-time. But there’s a way around to cartoonize your photos.

Here’s what to do:

  • Install Voila AI Artist app.
  • Open it and tap 3D Cartoon Mode.
  • Select one of your pictures from the gallery and enjoy.

The mode offers three filtering options: Royalty, Cartoon (aka Pixar), and Baby. The latter makes your catoonized face look like you’re 12 again.

Apart from the cartoonish stuff, Voila AI Artist can stylize your photo as a majestic Renaissance painting, 2-dimensional caricature, and so forth.

As the icing on top, the processed photos can be downloaded for free: no premium is required. After you get the pics, you can publish them anywhere you want on Facebook. Instagram, Tinder, Telegram, etc.


The lens isn’t directly available on TikTok either, so here’s a little lifehack:

  • Do everything as described in the Snapchat part.
  • Film a video and save it to your camera roll.
  • Upload the result to your TikTok.

Snapchat has been booming lately with all sorts of new lenses and filters. You can teleport to the GTA: San Andreas, turn yourself into an anime/manga character, apply a Hollywood filter or use the What Do You meme filter, and so on.

For example, the new home screen will be able to place widgets anywhere – like on its Android alternatives. Now, instead of dedicated section, you will be able to place widgets where you want them to be. Reviewed multitasking will allow your iPad to better handle multiple apps at the same...

In late 2021, Android will introduce the same possibility, though not for everybody at the same time. You won’t have to wait for the next major update to see apps ask you whether you will let them track you and access your data. All it takes is a Google Services update, and Alphabet is already working on it. So,...
