The Incredible Evolution of Pixar


No one makes animated movies quite like Pixar. With 23 years, 10 films, and 22 Academy Awards under their belt, the incredible guys over at Pixar Animation Studios keep getting better and better with each passing year.

Last week we received a suggestion from one of our readers about doing a post on Up, their latest masterpiece. I thought this was an excellent idea, but I also think that their other films deserve some recognition too. So here I bring you a collection of all the Pixar feature films to date plus some of their shorts at the end. My all-time favorite Pixar short is Presto!, so definitely be sure to check that one out ;) Actually, now that I come to think of it, Toy Story 2 was the first film I ever saw in theatres (to my memory). I was seven :)

Have an idea for the next post? Send me your suggestions via facebook or twitter!
