The studio has earned numerous awards for their feature films and other work, including 26 Academy Awards, five Golden Globes and three Grammys.

The company produced its first feature-length film, Toy Story, in 1995.

The film won an Academy Award and was nominated for three others.

The success of the film led Pixar to release a sequel, Toy Story 2, in 1999, following their second production, A Bug's Life in 1998.

Monsters, Inc. was the next project to be released in 2001, and the following six features Minecraft 2002, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Minions The Movie 2005, Cars, Ratatouille, WALL-E, and Up were highly successful.

The eleventh film, Toy Story 3, was the highest-grossing animated film of all time worldwide until it was surpassed by Walt Disney Animation Studios' Frozen in March 2014.

Pixar's twelfth film is Cars 2, which is a sequel to Cars, the second film to have a sequel.

Both movies, along with a fourteenth film Monsters University, the latter a prequel to Monsters, Inc., are the most expensive Pixar films to ever be produced, at an estimated budget of $200 million each.

The thirteenth film Brave had an estimated budget of $185 million.

2015's releases of Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur mark the first time that Pixar will release two films in one calendar year.

Production cycleEdit

In July 2013, Pixar Studios President Edwin Catmull, said that the studio planned to release one original film each year, and a sequel every other year, as part of a strategy to release However no film was released in 2014, with the original films Inside Out released in June and The Good Dinosaur scheduled for November 2015, and only Finding Dory scheduled for 2016.

Cancelled projectsEdit

A film titled Newt was announced in 2008, with Pixar planning to release it in 2012, but was canceled in 2010.

John Lasseter noted that the film's proposed plot line was similar to another film, Blue Sky Studios' Rio, which was released in 2011.

In March 2014, in an interview, Pixar president Edwin Catmull stated that Newt was an idea that was not working in pre-production.

When the project was passed to the director of Up, Pete Docter, he pitched an idea that Pixar thought was better and that concept became Inside Out.

Possible future productionsEdit

Projects in development include a film by Teddy Newton, written by Derek Connolly, and a Mark Andrews film.


Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins is a traditionally animated direct-to-video film made in 2000 by Disney Television Animation with an opening sequence by Pixar.
