"Animation is the one type of movie that really does play for the entire audience. Our challenge is to make stories that connect for kids and adults."
Pete Docter
"Boy, never did I dream that making a flip book out of my third grade math book would lead to this."
Brad Bird
"Animation is about creating the illusion of life. And you can't create it if you don't have one."
Andrew Stanton
“We're not supervised. We're sort of allowed, like an independent filmmaker, to do what we want. You don't get that freedom anywhere else. And this is the only studio outside of Disney, when Walt Disney ran it, where an artist runs the whole place. Here, it's John Lasseter, and that trickles down.”

life sharing a dream of adventure with
his one and only love Ellie. After the
tragedy of Ellie's death, Carl comes to
terms with a promise he made her of
reaching their dream home in paradise
falls. Being a retired balloon salesman,
Carl ties thousands of balloons to his
home (he has trouble letting go of things that mean a lot to him [THEME]) and sets off on the adventure he and Ellie always dreamed of... with a few bumps in the air along the
way, such as a boyscout just trying to earn his "assisting the elderly badge", a talking dog, a rare tropical bird, and his childhood
hero, Charles Muntz
"Adventure is out there!"
Lasseter & Stanton's
A young ant named Flik, who is outcasted from his colony because he's an individual, ruins a sacrificial meal that his colony gives to the grasshoppers (the bad guys) so they leave their colony alone. Once ruined, the grasshopper's leader, Hopper, gives the ants a deadline to get the food back. Flik then suggests rather than working for the grasshoppers, why not stand up to them by hiring, stronger warrior bugs? Turns out the warrior bugs, aren't as barbaric as he thought.
Based on Kurasowa's Seven Samurai

Why do monsters hide in our closets to scare us? It's their job.
Top scare team for Monsters Incorporated, Mike and Sully, are best buddies, inseparable, with nothing standing in their way of being record holders for the company. Monsters objectives are to travel from their world through portal closet doors to out world's children's closets. How old sayings go, they are more scared of us. They just need children's screams, because that's what energizes their city. Things get crazy when a little girl gets into the monster world, and into the claws of Mike and Sully.
