Top Ten Best Pixar Movies

What are the best movies ever made by the best animation company in the world?

The Top Ten

1 Toy Story

It kicks more ass than any of the others, although the others all kick a fair amount of ass. This one is a classic and it started the success that Pixar is.

It's a good movie and coincidently, it was first released in the year when I was born 1995. I have fond memories of this movie and without this movie, I'll never even think of pursuing animation and story development in my career path

U got a friend in me I love this song I like this film I like the so writer randy Newman!

I am a ' damn idiot

2 The Incredibles

Highly regarded as Pixar's best movie, The Incredibles is a wonderful adventure that provides the perfect combination of the best of superhero movies, along with family comedy. It's hilarious to see two superheroes fight like husband and wife!

My favourite but I wish they'd make Incredibles 2

Don't get Tired of watching this Movie... Don't get me wrong, I enjoy every Pixar Movie, but this one Much more. -RMJ

The best animated film of ALL TIME

3 Finding Nemo

Best. Movie. Ever. Everything about it, the characters, and story line, the animations, and especially the music. The music is one of the best things about it for sure. I don't know how this movie isn't number one. Also, Disney and Pixar couldn't have picked better actors to do the voices for Nemo, Dory, and Marlin. And as I said before, Best. Movie. Ever.

This movie is excellent. This is not only my favorite Pixar movie, it is also my 2nd favorite movie of all time, just behind How to Train Your Dragon from Dreamworks. I am a huge fan of all the films both Dreamworks and Pixar create.

This is the greatest movie of ALL time. This is a very cute movie. Also touches the heart at the end!

Most endearing pixar film ever made. Superior to all the others and just surpased by toy story.

4 Up

Up manages to reduce me to tears within the first 10 minutes, than any other movie in it's entirety. By far Up's most mature movie, with plenty of colorful and quirky characters for younger children to enjoy. Up is truly a masterpiece that, like Toy Story 3, was nominated for multiple Oscars.

We do realize that there's only 13 movies right? There all up here. Anyway, love Dug and Kevin. I always liked how he said: "Hi. My name is Dug. You are my master. " And Kevin was just funny. And how many movies can make you cry in the BEGINNING? - Pikachulover1

Oh this movie is so good! Every movie on this list deserve to be number 1. Up is one of the most touching movies I've ever seen, this movie never fails to make me cry, the music and the characters and plot are all so perfect. Pixar did and always
Does and amazing job.

My all time favorite. Worth watching numerous times. Such an original and emotional touching and viable story.

5 Monsters, Inc.

One of the funniest and most emotional Pixar movies, with a touching and perfect ending.

Monsters, Inc. Is an absolutely fantastic movie. Period.

This movie is my favorite cartoon movies' - The_Monster

7? great movie deservew top 2 spot - CrowdedChisel

6 Wall-E

Great. I love that there is such a powerful message in this film, this is probably there best with Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Monster's Inc.

A powerful, beautiful film. You've gotta love how Pixar can make love blossom without words. Wall-E is likeable and sweet, an amazing character. - sameera62

Wall-e is the cutest animated character ever. the only thing he has as a mimic is his eyes, but they're enough to tell his feelings.

Best Pixar movie ever

7 Toy Story 3

The best Toy Story ever made! It had a good storyline and I hope it wins best picture this year. Also the number 1 animation of all time! - roblist

A beautiful and funny movie that is by far better than it's prequels. It is also the 8th highest-grossing movie of all time, making it Pixar's most succesful.


While watching this movie I'm pretty sure I cried 5 times. This is just a sad story and I'd be happy if it ended there. But there's a TOY STORY 4 that's been released. Haven't watched it yet but definitely will to see if it was really that necessary or if it was just a waste of money. But this movie is definitely awesome. Wonderful animation that follows a thrilling story-line. Memorable characters saying good by for the penultimate time.

8 Toy Story 2

Toy Story is like the original Star Wars movie because this movie is the Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy. It's so great I can't even fit all of its greatness into this comment. The theme about everything coming to an end and whether we should accept it sooner or wait it out is a very mature dilemma and probably the best in the pixar movies. The visuals in the movie are purely stunning. The airport scene, Al's Toy Barn, and the scene where Woody gets restored are imprinted in my mind forever and they could be a short on their own. Jesse's back story rivals that of Up's first 10 minutes of heartbreaking-ness. It should be higher if not number one. Ratatouille should be higher too.

This is my favorite toy story film which is weird because its usually everyone's least favorite

The third was my least favourite because I loved the first two when I was little and I was still pretty young when 3 came out, but even then, it got boring pretty quickly. - 3DG20

It tells hw it feels to have something taken from you and by the way sid could look ike andy's older brother but sid is wrong laugh out loud

Should be higher! - 23MACCAja

9 Inside Out

"Meet the little voices inside your head."

THIS IS THE BEST PIXAR MOVIE. Toy Story 3 and Incredibles are amazing, but Inside out provides the audience with the most intricate world and fun, whimsical storytelling of any Pixar film ever. Say what you want about its plot not being tight enough, but everything else in the movie makes up for it in the most enjoyable way possible.

I came out of both The Lego Movie and Big Hero 6 saying, "Wow, this was just as good as Frozen! " but when I went to see Inside Out for the first time, I was like, "WOW! This is SO MUCH BETTER than Frozen! And every other Pixar film, If I'm being honest! " Pixar has not topped Inside Out since (even though Coco came close), and I can't get enough of it. I just can't wait for a sequel that expands upon this world.

As to be expected, those emotions will make the viewer emotional as it teaches us the importance of emotions and expressing them. One of the best movies animated film I've seen in awhile and it proofs that Pixar is back with the groove.

I can not wait to see this movie. I bet it is going to be one of THE best Pixar movie ever! I watched some trailers and I love the characters already!

10 Ratatouille

One of the best films of all time. Great effects from Pixar and it leaves other movies for dead! It definitely is one of the best films of the year

Although WALL-E is my favorite Pixar movie, I had to vote for this because it belongs in the top 10, no question. You know a kid's movie is good is adult love it, too. Ratatouille is a movie you can watch infinitely. It never gets old.

1. Ratatoille because he is a rat and he is friends with a human 2. Wall-e it shows how much humans are polluting the earth 3. Finding nemo marlin and dory go all across the sea to save a little cute fish 4. Toy story 3 it shows how much toys care for their owners 5. The incredibles funny story of a superhero family 6. Toy story amazing story and just love you got a friend in me song 7. Up up has a romance tragedy funny moments action and more but still ratatouille kicks buttux hello!

A master Piece is a Rat Who cooks Then Controls a Human with he's Hair YEP its Ratatouille A movie That Toke My Movie list And ripped I love The Story Its Fun and Shows How it Feels like to be a Rat For some Reason How is Inside out Better... Inside out Did not Feel So smooth Like Ratatouille Did


The Contenders

11 Cars

LOVE it! This movie is by far the best in this list. I think that it deserves to be #1 by far! I have seen it so many times I can't count. It has amazing quotes and lovely characters

CARS should be top 1.. I love this movie since I've saw it... its a COUNTY story and lots of best QUOTES.. pixar ever...

Whats Cars doing at 11! It should at least be right under Toy Story. -

Best movie that came from pixar! Cars 3 to me is the only movie that could replicate this film's success

12 Coco

I love this movie! This is so beautiful, this should be higher! This is so emotional, and the part where Hector sings "Remember Me" to Coco was so emotional, I love it! This doesn't have cringy, annoying songs, in fact, the songs are really catchy and fun. For you disney haters, if you say that disney movies are boring and unemotional, I challenge you to either watch Coco or Inside Out!

It was different from all the other movies. It stud out amongst the crowd! All the vibrant color are truly wonderful, and don't even get me started on how amazing the music is! Sure, it's not a classic, but it is always going to be a movie that I will look at with high regards!

This movie was great and funny, I loved how mama Imelda used her shoe as a weapon

Better than even Toy Story

FiGHt mE

13 A Bug's Life

A bugs life is the only pixar movie that has a terrible darkness in it. Hopper the main villain, is very creepy, mean and makes the ants do nonstop slave work. I love Hopper! The darkness of this movie is at the end of course. I nominate this movie as a make you laugh, and scream adventure. This movie by far is the best pixar movie.

What? I grew up on this movie! This has an amazing plot!

Not really sure but just because there bugs or it has a stupid plot doesn't mean you despise or hate this movie. I think its pretty memorable

People saying it aged badly this was the 1990s.
Toy Story and A Bug's Life started Pixar you wouldn't have it without them.

14 Monsters University

A prequel that happens before Monsters inc and show how mike a sully first met in college

This is deserves to be higher! Best movies of 2013! Pixar has a good job make a prequel that happen before Monster, Inc. And I almost like all of characters too. Sometimes funny and cool yet. And have a great graphics and pictures. Just love it!

Monsters University is definitely my favorite Pixar movie of all the time! While Up and The Good Dinasour got me so emotional, Toys Story and Brave got me hyped, and Wall-E and Monsters Inc got me relieved and really connected to them, Monsters University manages to get me exotic, hyped, enthusiastic, relieved, and emotional altogether. It has such a developed plot, beautiful graphics, peaceful soundtrack, lovely characters, exciting events to live with, and most importantly:

It got something to relate and get connected with. It got such complex morals...something that many movies actually contradict with it.

While many movies explain us about how we succeed in many things the more we try, this movie literally explains the OPPOSITE. Monsters University has taught me that us humans are not good at everything no matter how we try; and if even if we did, we won't be mastering them. Each one of us should accept his/her strengths, weaknesses, benefits, and disadvantages and ...more

Great animation - ElSherlock

15 Finding Dory

Even The Force Awakens had more originality than this!

The movie was way better than the first one.

Are you guys kidding me this is a great movie it deserves to be on the top ten

Funny humor - ElSherlock

16 Incredibles 2

It's better than a lot of the movies higher than it! - 23MACCAja

Borg herb stew - lemur

Love this movie Love the animation Best animated movie and best movie of all time Incredibles 2 is the best animated movie since Wall•E!

The voice acting is very good - ElSherlock

17 Toy Story 4 Toy Story 4

Quick History:

I'm not the biggest Toy Story fan. The movies are good, but I don't like watching them. So, when I found out Pixar was making a fourth film, I wasn't interested. Trailers came out and I still wasn't interested. Then, I saw Chris Stuckmann's "Toy Story 4" review. He really liked it, so I decided to give it a chance. A few days ago, I was at McDonald's with my mom. She was looking through films playing in theaters. "Toy Story 4" was an option, so I decided to check it out. I went in with low expectations, and came out with my mind blown. This isn't just the best Toy Story movie, it's one of the best films I've ever seen! I love everything about this movie! I can't think of anything I didn't like! definitely the best Pixar film I've ever seen.

Easily the funniest in the whole franchise and a story worth being told. - BurnAux

Gabby Gabby is an icon - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

Gabby Gabby was made in hell

18 Cars 3

I saw it yesterday, and it's actually really good! I think it's the best Cars movie so far. Yes, it's far from the best Pixar movie, but I think it's a big step-up from Cars 2 and it's the sequel we deserve! The only complaints I had were that in my opinion some scenes dragged on too long, and it lacked in terms of comedy. They were trying to make it all big and dramatic and didn't put a lot of comedy in it, which kind of had me bored with some parts. There were some parts that made me chuckle, but it wasn't laugh-out-loud funny. But I think the new characters were very well written! Jackson Storm was a villain where I genuinely got pissed whenever he came on screen or when I even heard his name! And that's good! He seems like a true villain and enemy to Lightning! Not the best Pixar has done, but still worth watching at least once. I would give this movie an 8/10. - UltimateCraig

Massive improvement of Cars 2 and nearly met the success of Cars

This movie wasn't good. The entire conflict could've been solved by upgrading Mcqueen to have faster speed. He IS a car. Before you argue by saying he's a talking car and they can't do that, he was repaired earlier when he crashed, so why couldn't they just give him more speed? Not to mention the ending was completely stupid. Why would they allow Lightning to let Cruz finish the race? AND HOW DID SHE WIN? She was way behind when she started, and she has no experience racing. The first movie was way better in my opinion. - piper1212

This is a massive improvement over Cars 2 - ElSherlock

19 Knick Knack

Good Short

20 Onward

Why is this higher than already released movies?

Well I guess Pixar has really high hopes for this movie.

Not even out yet!

Releasing in March 2020.

21 Mike's New Car

Funny - iliekpiez

Great Short to Monsters Inc.

22 Good Burger
23 Luxo Jr.

Pixar's original animation. For those who don't know, this is where that lamp in their intro comes from.

The lamp and the ball remind me of Pixar (probably because it is also Pixar) nice and short. I've never seen him. just know the story. very funny. Luxo jr. Must have a higher place. so people, why don't you just vote for Luxo jr. otherwise you have to vote for Brave, find cars 2 or Dory. although Finding Nemo and Toy Story 2/3 also deserve 1st place. oh yes, I am NOT a FAN OF INCREDIBLE AND COCO AND A BUGS LIFE

24 Geri's Game

Great short! - darthvadern

Love this movie

25 For the Birds
26 Mower Minions

Not Pixar - TeamRocket747

27 Tin Toy

What the hell is this


28 Cars 2

Cars 2 was just decent. The story is too complicated and confusing, the characters are one-dimensional and underdeveloped and the jokes and humours are bad and not funny. But the animation is astonishing and feels atmosphere when they go around the world in Tokyo, Paris, Italy and London. It's still a fun action-packed movie to watch with your family.

Finding Dory and Toy Story 4 are not even out yet and Frozen is not Pixar. This movie was decent in my opinion.


It was alright

29 Brave

This movie has a very beautiful story to it! I am proud of Disney/Pixar for coming up with a beautiful tale with a priceless lesson behind it! Well done Pixar/Disney - docreywashere

In my opinion This movie does not get enough respect. Very Underrated. I love this movie

The movie is new, interesting and very high quality graphics enabled work!
It is best for children, mostly girls but adults might also enjoy it!

How is this below Cars 2?

30 The Good Dinosaur

This one was really dumb and it sucked - MrSnuffleupagus

This is a way too underrated movie. The story and animation are beautiful and I personally love it. This amazing pic at movie needs more respect.

This and two others are the only Pixar movies I disliked.

Why is this lower than Brave?

31 The Adventures of Andre & Wally B.

A dank meme.

32 Jack Jack Attack

Its jack Jack how can you not like it. Favorite part of watching the Incredibles.

Fun little short. - iliekpiez

Is this the incredibles 3? guess so LOL

33 One Man Band

I loved watching this on the cars dvd - Weirdest-thing

OK little short - iliekpiez

The short film is funny, heartfelt, wordless, and is surprising that it was made in 2005

34 Bao

Best Pixar short. - iliekpiez

35 The Ghost of Lord Farquaad

The best pixar movie ever. - TeamRocket747

Even though its DreamWorks ( one of my favorite studios ) its awesome. I just don't like the spiders. but bringing lord fart ( lol ) quad ( he has very small quads lol ). genius!

This is Dreamworks, not Pixar.

Obviusly, this is my favorite pixar movie

36 Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6 was made by Walt Disney Animation studios, not Pixar. It's still a good movie though.

Not pixar
