Pixar is a CGI production company based in Emeryville, California, United States. The studio has earned numerous awards for their feature films and other work, including 26 Academy Awards, five Golden Globes and three Grammys. Pixar is best known for CGI-animated features created with PhotoRealistic RenderMan, its own implementation of the industry-standard Renderman image-rendering API used to generate high-quality images.

As of June 2013, Pixar has released 14 films, all released under the Walt Disney Pictures banner. 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 CGI production, A Bug's Life in 1998. Monsters, Inc. was the next project to be released in 2001, and the following six features Finding Nemo (2003), The Incredibles (2004), Cars (2006), Ratatouille (2007), WALL-E (2008), and Up (2009) were highly successful. The eleventh film, Toy Story 3 (2010), has become the second highest-grossing animated film of all time worldwide. Pixar's twelfth film is Cars 2 (2011), which is a sequel to Cars, the second film to have a sequel. Both movies, along with a fourteenth film Monsters University (2013), are the most expensive Pixar films to ever be produced, at an estimated budget of $200 million each. Its thirteenth film, Brave (2012), had an estimated budget of $185 million.

Production cycle[edit]

According to Pixar Studios President Edwin Catmull, Pixar will release one original film a year and sequels every other year, as part of a strategy to release "one and a half movies a year."[18] However, a film was not released in 2014.

Canceled projects[edit]

A film titled Newt was announced in 2008, with Pixar planning to release it in 2012, but was cancelled in 2010.[19] John Lasseter noted that the film's proposed plot line was similar to another film, Blue Sky Studios' Rio, which was released in 2011.[20] In March 2014, in an interview, Pixar president Edwin Catmull stated that Newt was an idea that wasn't 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 the film Inside Out.[21] Newt was originally planned to be released in 2011, then later pushed back to 2012. Later, it was announced that Brave would be released in 2012 instead, with no new release date or extra information announced for Newt.

Possible future productions[edit]

Projects in development include a film by Teddy Newton, written by Derek Connolly,[22] and a Mark Andrews film.[23][24]

Co-production[edit]

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins is a traditionally animated 2000 direct-to-video film made by Disney Television Animation with an opening sequence by Pixar. The show led to a television cartoon series of the same name with Pixar doing the CGI portion of the opening theme.

Related productions[edit]

Planes is a spin-off of the Cars franchise, made by DisneyToon Studios and co-written and executive-produced by John Lasseter. The film was conceived from the short film Air Mater, which introduces aspects of Planes and ends with a hint of the movie. It was released on August 9, 2013. A sequel, titled Planes: Fire & Rescue, was released July 18, 2014.
