Founded in 1979 as The Graphics Group and 1/3 a part of LucasFilm’s computer division, PIXAR has become the apex of computer animated and generated based feature films. And though in recent years it has had a few minor missteps in its creative film making (Cars 2, for example), there are still plenty of reason to cherish and admire this great imagination machine.
PIXAR are responsible for some of our most treasured animated movies. Imagine a world without them; no Toy Story, no Incredibles, no WALL-E. The world would be a much darker place. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at ten reasons why you should still love PIXAR just as much as we do.
Upon its release in 2007, I was one of many who questioned whether or not PIXAR had lost their creative minds by releasing a film about a mouse in France who has a passion for cooking. And weren’t we all wrong. Charming, beautiful, and extremely well put together, this film silenced all critics and proved that the love of food and cooking infects us all.
This was also the first PIXAR film released in association with Disney, as they purchased PIXAR the same year for a whopping $7.4 billion dollars.
