A history of Pixar feature films from Toy Story (1995) to Brave (2012) with facts, quotes, photos and ratings.

Pixar started life as The Graphics Group, a subsidiary of Lucasfilm. The Graphics Group was purchased by the late Steve Jobs in 1986 and became Pixar. They produced short animations for advertising companies in the late 80's. In the early 90's they teamed up with Walt Disney Productions to develop and produce a series of fully computer generated feature films.

John Lasseter (1957-) was an animator at Disney before joining Pixar, he produced award winning animated shorts before going on to direct the very first CG feature film Toy Story (1995). Lasseter was executive producer on all Pixar's feature films. In 2006 Walt Disney Studios purchased Pixar and John Lasseter was named Chief Creative Officer.

Buzz: Sheriff, this is no time to panic.
Woody: This is a perfect time to panic! I'm lost, Andy is gone, they're gonna move to their new house in two days, AND IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!
Buzz: Mine? My fault? If you hadn't pushed me out of the window in the first place...
Woody: Oh yeah? Well, if you hadn't shown up with your stupid little cardboard spaceship and taken away everything that was important to me...
Buzz: Don't talk to me about importance! Because of you, the future of this entire universe is in jeopardy!
Woody: WHAT? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
Buzz: Right now, poised at the edge of the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet! I alone have information that reveals this weapon's only weakness. And you my friend are responsible for delaying my rendezvous with Star Command!
Woody: YOU ARE A TOYYYYY! You aren't the real Buzz Lightyear! You're an action figure! You are a child's plaything!

Steve...BRAVO!! this hub is just wonderful! With my 10th. grandchild on the way, you can bet I've seen all these great movies......especially "Toy Story," which I believe I can quote the entire script. My grandson, who is now 17, was crazy about this film...and we watched it over and over. It's a favorite of mine

I also loved "Finding Nemo"........but I LOVED "Madagascar" and I didn't see it in your hub......why? Is it not in the same category or something?

Very very good hub!!! Voted UP +++ !!!

Thank you Paula, your comment and kind words are much appreciated.

Madagascar was made by a different studio, Dreamworks. I wanted to celebrate Pixars animated movies for this hub, they are considered the best at this sort of animation.

Dreamworks has also done Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon. I should do a hub on them one day.

Ice Age is a different studio too, 20th Century Fox.

Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the much-needed education........I liked Shrek too..(mostly due to (Eddie Murphy) the donkey!....and I have been told by many (adults) that How to Train Your Dragon is very very good....have yet to watch it.

I appreciate your knowledge. You boost my Grandma Points!!

OMG! This hub is so awesome! I have seen most of those. I loved Cars. My daughter still has some of the toy characters! We still have To Story and Nemo. I think these are some of the greatest films ever. Better than a lot of adult trash!

Up and awesome. You have spent a lot of time on this one. Well done!

Shrek deserves his own hub and Donkey was hilarious, thanks to Eddie Murphy.

I would recommend How to Train Your Dragon too, an excellent animation which beat Pixar at the Oscars that year.

natures47friend, thanks very much for commenting. I'm glad you enjoyed the hub. The new Pixar film Brave was out on release and gave me a good excuse to produce this hub.

Excellent excellent hub....and one that I could enjoy with my two little girls....as they are easily Pixar girls......Woody is my 5 year's old favorite toy....and she has been walking around with Woody for almost 4 years....Woody has gone to Vegas with us twice, the Gulf of Mexico once, Hollywood once, and he is about to go to Montreal, Canada in a few weeks as well. Meanwhile my 3 year old is a huge Jessie fan(both kids are sitting on my lap as I type this comment...wanting to see the pictures again) and she carries Jessie around everywhere.

I think the Toy Story movies are easily the best of the bunch....and I look forward to Toy Story 4......Monsters University does not look like a winner to me....or my kids. Actually I am beginning to wonder if the end of Pixar's golden touch is coming to an end....sure they still have box office glory....but their last two movies have not been critical darlings like their previous efforts.

Awesome photos and awesome stats....you are getting not one but three votes up.....a fun hub to read.

Thanks Bruce, appreciate the comment, anecdote, observation, votes and kind words.

Toy Story 3 did phenomenally well, considering it was the 3rd in the series. It had the best reviews of any Pixar film and has made more money than any animated movie in history, in unadjusted dollars. Amazing stuff. But my favourite of the three Toy Story films remains the first, the film that started it all.

I really enjoyed Monsters Inc not sure if a prequel is a great idea but lets wait and see.

I was hoping for a sequel to The Incredibles, a missed opportunity for Pixar not to be working on one now with all the success of The Avengers and soon to be released Dark Knight Rises.

I really loved this hub, in fact, I loved it so much I linked it to my Wall-E hub! Thanks to studios like Pixar kids don't have to watch cartoons like Farmer Grey anymore (yes I'm that old).

You provide so much good information together with some great pictures and movie quotes.

Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

Thank you Mary, appreciate the comment, vote, link and kind words. I thought this might be a fun hub to do, plenty of colorful pictures and I have to admit to a weakness for animation, it appeals to the kid in me. :)
