"Pixar's objective is to combine proprietary technology and world-class creative talent to develop computer-animated feature films with memorable characters and heartwarming stories that appeal to audiences of all ages."

Pixar Animation Studios is an animation studio (obviously) that creates features films. Pixar began in 1979 and it was a graphics group in the Computer division of Lucas Films befre it was bought by Steve Jobs. Disney then bought Pixar from Steve Jobs for $7.4 Billion. They have 11 full-length animated feature films and the average film grosses about $602 million.

Their cast and crew have the innate ability of combining beautiful animation with creative story telling in such a way that tugs at the heartstrings of viewers of all ages. They bring out the child in all of us and help teach some great life lessons.

The Disney Relationship: Pixar and Disney had an agreement for the production of up to three animated feature movies in 1991. This was in pursuit of making the movie Toy Story. In 1997, Pixar and Disney made another agreement to make up to five animated feature movies to be distributed by Disney. Bug's life, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, the Incredibles, and Cars were made. Ratatouille was added to the agreement in 2006. Finally, in 2006 Pixar and Disney came to an agreement to merge the two companies.
