Best Pixar Movies

Charles Stockdale

Fans of animated movies are eager for the release of Pixar’s upcoming “Toy Story 4.” The film, set to be released in theaters on June 21, has already set the record for ticket presales for an animated movie, according to ticketing websites Fandango and Atom Tickets. If excitement continues at current levels, the movie could join Pixar’s “Incredibles 2,” released last summer, as one of the movies with the biggest opening weekends ever.

Pixar has earned a reputation for producing some of the best animated movies since the release of its first feature film — the original “Toy Story” — in 1995. The company’s commitment to engaging storytelling and cutting-edge animation technology has made it a favorite of audiences and film critics alike.

The company’s work has been so popular that despite only releasing 20 feature films since its inception, it has produced 10 of the 25 top grossing animated movies of all time. Its focus on making creative children movies that can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages has proven a winning strategy.

In anticipation of the release of “Toy Story 4,” 24/7 Tempo has ranked every movie produced by Pixar from worst to best based on audience and critic ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and Internet Movie Database.
