Most people would often forget that a lot of the Disney movies are actually part of the Disney Pixar family, a branch of Disney that has put out a lot of successful movies. There has been a total of seventeen Pixar movies that has been released and they are all rather successful in the box-office. What differentiates them from the regular Disney films is that they tackle themes that the regular films don’t usually tap on. It’s less on fantasies and more on reality. Without for ado, here are the top 10 Disney Pixar movies of all time in no particular order.
10. A Bug’s Life
What a great way to start off this list than by reminding you of how much of a golden age the 90s were for Disney and Disney Pixar movies. A Bug’s Life is a story about an ant that stood up for his beliefs and proved to everyone that it doesn’t matter that he is small and weak. He has a right to protect what he loves and no matter how hard it was, he never gave up. It’s really one of those movies that you just can’t help but keep coming back to.
We’re talking about the first installment of Cars in this case because it is just a classic that everyone loves. This particular movie teaches life lessons such as humility and gratitude which will give you all sorts of warm feelings. Of course the romance is sprinkled here and there. But the most important part is that compassion for others is far more important than fame and fortune.
Pushing boundaries is something Disney isn’t usually known for. But with Pixar, it’s a whole different story altogether. Breaking social norms can be risky at times because of the audience, which are mostly kids and their over protective parents. But the way they incorporated something taboo into a masterpiece of a plot really does show the excellence that is Disney Pixar.
7. The Incredibles
There aren’t a lot of movies that focus on family and this superhero animation touches on the different sides of each family member. From the youngest to the parents, the family dynamic is just so electrifying that you can’t help but value your family all the more because of how it is emphasized in this movie. Probably one of the best superhero animations that Disney Pixar has put out, The Incredibles really is an incredible movie.
6. Monsters, Inc
Another classic that deserves a standing ovation, Monsters, Inc is a heartwarming movie about friendship. The dynamic relationship between the two main characters with another character truly symbolized the companionship and closeness they have with each other. No matter how many times you watch it, it will still have the same effect over and over again.
5. Inside Out
Blockbuster hit Inside Out is a movie that will pull a your heartstrings because it hits so close to home. It will take you back in time when you were still a teenager, experiencing all kinds of emotions and you have no idea what to do with them. It represents the difficult and life changing transition from childhood to young adulthood so perfectly that it even sheds some light to what is going on to the younger generation today.
4. Wall E
If you haven’t seen this iconic movie about a robot in space, then you have been missing out on a lot. What makes this such an amazing is that it gives such a powerful message without even using words to express them. A movie like that is rare and to think that this movie only has two characters that aren’t even human at all and they express what it is to be human so perfectly.
There are no words to fully describe this roller coaster of a movie called Up. The infamous photo set that went viral on Tumblr fully enraptured the raw feelings expressed in this movie. From meeting someone to falling in love with them and then eventually parting ways because that’s life is quite heartbreaking for a kids show. But that makes it all the more impressive because it tackles reality to a T.
2. Finding Nemo
The classic that brought about the immense success of Finding Dory, Finding Nemo is a tear-jerker that will bring you a feeling of nostalgia. From the aesthetics to the heartbreaking story line and the unique characters, this animation about creatures of the ocean is definitely the best there ever was and the best animation there ever will be. The music alone already gives you all kinds of feels that will make you burst into tears and laughter at the same time.
1. Toy Story
One of the only movies that actually have sequels better than the first installments, Toy Story is a story about friendship, growing up, and compassion for others. If this list were to be ranked from best to the rest, Toy Story is definitely at the top. If you thought Toy Story 1 was good, Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 took everything to a completely different level, with each movie getting better each time.
