Having directed both Toy Story and A Bug's Life, John Lasseter was tired. He took a vacation, and Pixar was asked to do a direct-to-video Toy Story 2.
Without John for creative input, the result was a slapped-together movie. When John came in to see what the studio had done, he saw it was a disaster. He told Disney they had to fix it and in two days, not only was the movie changed, so was the date it could be seen, this time, in theaters.
The rocky start for this film has shaped Pixar's opinion that if a sequel's story isn't good they won't make it until it is.
This scene is all that's left of the direct-to-video movie. It shows how close it was to being finished before it was remade.
Toy Story was Pixar's first film. Not only that,
but the first computer-animated one. Disney
thought a movie about toys could only be for
kids, and pushed for the opposite. This didn't
work, and by December 1991, Disney was ready
to shut production down. But thanks to a rewrite
two days before, The movie came out November 22,
The A Bug's Life VHS came out with
four different cover designs, shown here.
Toy Stoy's succes turned expectations up, way
up, for Pixar. Their aswer to the chalenge was
A Bug's Life.
Little is known about it's inspiration except real-life
footage and Asop's fable, The Ant and the Grasshopper
Buzz Lightyear of Star Command
was made in 2000 as a pilot to the cartoon
The show's intro is shown here. It ran from 2000 to 2001 and made 62 episodes, with a series rerun in 2009.
Like A Bug's Life, Finding Nemo and WALL.E,
Monsters, Inc. was thought of in a meeting inside
the Hidden City Cafe in the summer of 1994.
Director, Pete Docter realized those who saw Toy Story
told him that they themselves believed their toys came to life when they were young, and was looking for something like that when he came up with the film.
Since monsters could be anything, tons of changes were made to the characters. For example, Mike once had fur, no arms and was purple and or red when he wasn't green, and Sully had tentacles.

Toy Story 3 came out on June 18, 2010 as Pixar's higest anticipated film. Since there were 11 years between Toy Stories 2 and 3 and numerous technology advances, all of the main characters' models had to be updated, as were Sully and Mike's models from Monsters, Inc. to University, as shown here.
Finding Nemo was the last Pixar film on VHS.
Pixar's sixth computer-animated film, The Incredibles, was directed by Brad Bird, who also directed The Iron Giant.
Now, believe it or not, The Incredibles was supposed to be made for Warner Brothers, who presented his previous film, but Pixar called him and said they were worried about becoming complacent, which was enough to get Brad to produce it there.
Cars was the first movie John Lasseter had directed in 7 years. And, was enough of a success to launch Pixar's first non-Toy Story sequel.
IT SEEMS ALL OF BRAD BIRD'S FILMS ARE ABOUT HUMANS AND EXTRORDANARY SITUATIONS.
A BOY MAKING FRIENDS WITH A ROBOT FROM OUTER SPACE? THAT WAS CRAZY.
HOW 'BOUT THE LIFE OF SUPERHEROES OUTSIDE OF COMICS. CRAZY, HUH?
BUT ABOVE ALL, THE STORY OF A BOY LEARNING HOW TO COOK WITH A RAT THAT PUTS THE "RAT" IN RATATOULLIE!
Now that was crazy! Cazy enough to win the best animated film of 2008 award!
These three characters share the same pose.
This film, WALL.E made records in Pixar history.
This film holds the record for smallest Pixar cast. And uses the lagest number of sounds for the robots.

Up is the story of Carl, a 78-year-old (the age is at Pixar.com)who sets out on the journey he and his dead wife, Ellie had when they were kids: to go to South America and meet explorer, Charles Muntz . But what Carl and Russell (a Wilderness Explorer who accompanies Carl in the hopes of earning a badge) don't know is Muntz has gotten a little mad in his search for the bird Russell has found and named Kevin.
Pixar's first non-Toy Story sequel was Cars 2. Here are clips to illustrate what happens.
