Ever since the release of Toy Story in 1995. Pixar develop films that touch the human experience in the most unexpected and beautiful ways. Through colorful characters and anthropomorphized toys, cars, animals and workPixar directors have explored our struggles with tragedy, loss and grief (including even the meaning of life), as well as the importance of love, family and friendship.

Each of Pixar’s 25 feature films touches on the themes of love and loss in different ways, making ranking them not an easy task. Inevitably, this list will ruin some feathers, which is proof of how much these films mean to the audience. But in determining the rankings, five key attributes of each film were considered: storyline, characters, depth, cultural impact, and reusability. This helped with the incredibly difficult task of figuring out which movies should top the list.

So, without further ado, here is our list of the best Pixar movies of the last 26 years.

One car movie would have been enough, but that was when Pixar was (unfortunately) deep in the sequel phase. It’s no secret that this film was not a hit with audiences or critics, as it is the only Pixar film so far to receive “rotten” assessment of Rotten Tomatoes. Cars 2 is one of those sequels that lacks a strong standalone script and instead relies heavily on the success of its predecessor. It also tends to focus more on action scenes than heartfelt moments, leaving viewers without the wonder and depth that define other Pixar films.

Best known for its stellar animation, The Good Dinosaur is an incredibly emotional film that will leave anyone who has ever felt like an exile, sympathetic to the protagonist Arlo, the family’s black sheep. It’s a solid film, but because other Pixar films have set the bar really high in terms of creativity and storytelling, we put this one at number 24, as some of the scenes are a bit slower and redundant. (What is this? Another animal attack?)

Somehow Pixar did not shy away from the cool reception Cars 2 received. Fortunately, the third installment of the Cars franchise includes a more enjoyable story (and more solid jokes) as we watch Lighting McQueen struggle to stay relevant in the rapidly changing world of racing. It still doesn’t fully match Pixar’s other offerings (and it’s difficult with sequels anyway), but it’s a pretty good movie, considering all that.

Watching this sequel to Finding Nemo felt like a déjà vu experience. (A lost fish looking for its parents? That sounds awfully familiar …) The film borrows a little too much from its predecessor’s winning storyline and without the same emotional depth. Still, it’s a fun journey to what Dori did, a blue fish with a memory loss, who she is.

Anthropomorphism is Pixar’s magical power, which he performs well in Cars. There is little laughter among the lessons on the dangers of the superficial, as well as a basic commentary on our obsession with celebrity culture. It’s one of those movies that seems to appeal to younger audiences, with its screaming scenes and slimmer plot, but it’s still the best choice of the Cars franchise.

While it’s a fun adult story for a sea monster who longs to live on land, Luca doesn’t offer the same level of plot creativity or emotional depth as many of Pixar’s other films (i.e., I didn’t tear up while watching this one. which is always a pity). But still, it is a lively film full of adventure, suspense and beautiful animations of the Italian seaside town where it takes place.

This backstory features a fun, well-structured plot that allows him to work as a decent soloist. He does a good job of not feeling compelled and we get an intriguing look at the backstory of favorite monsters Sully and Mike Vazovsky, while meeting memorable new characters like Terry and Terry Perry and Scott “Squishy” Squibbles.

Creative insight into what is happening in the world of insects, A Bug’s Life finds strength in its wit and originality. This is a real adventure and an early testament to Pixar’s remarkable story.

The long-awaited sequel is full of the same action and cute characters who made the first part such a hit, although it is not quite on par with the original. The plot can sometimes feel predictable as the family of superheroes fights against a villain, although there are enough carefree and useful moments to highlight this sequel.

Pixar

This seemed like a sequel that shouldn’t have happened, especially after Toy Story 3 ended with such a strong (and heartbreaking) note. There are still some fun series scattered everywhere, but this fourth part lacks a solid comedy and captivating plot that made the first three Toy Story movies resonate. Nevertheless, we met new attractive characters like Forki, who provides a good dose of laughter.

A fascinating presentation of what our world might look like if we continue to neglect the environment and be further absorbed in technology, Wall-E is a pertinent and compelling story about the last robot on Earth to take a space trip with the shiny probe Eva. Despite the minimal monologue, the film tells a fascinating story about the consequences of our actions and our innate desire to connect.

There are many stories focused on a stubborn child longing to carve his own path, but Brave equates this often recurring story with a powerful female lead, funny characters and a burst of magic. It is a touching homage to the mother-daughter relationship and a fascinating adventure all the way.

A touching tribute to the relationship between siblings, this is one of those movies that will catch you unprepared and make you reach for a box of handkerchiefs. Forward, it serves as a timely commentary on how modern conveniences and technologies seem to have deprived the world of enchantment and wonder, but there are still ways to reconnect with the past while appreciating the present and the people around us.

Here is a movie I would love to hear presented. This story about a rat who dreams of becoming a chef and seeks the help of a garbage man to try to make it a reality, brings to life the beauty of Paris and its culinary scene. He plays well in the irony of a rat longing to be in the kitchen – the place he least wants – and delivers a touching message: “Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere.”

Pixar

One of Pixar’s most vivid films, Coco touches on themes that resonate with a number of audiences: family, culture and the pursuit of a dream, after all. The animation is breathtaking, with vivid images of the celebrations that accompany Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Mexico. It also includes an epic plot twist that makes the story even more intriguing.

Pixar really defines its ability to touch the deepest issues and struggles of life, and Soul is a great example. The film inspires a sense of wonder through its dream concept of the afterlife, delicately protecting against the burden of death and illustrating the beauty of life and our lasting impact. This is one of a handful of movies on this list that will make you think about the purpose of your life, which is a much deeper excerpt than you would get from most animated films.

A movie about a favorite family of superheroes? It doesn’t get any more fun than that. The Incredibles offers the perfect balance of laughter and adventure, as well as some of Pixar’s most memorable characters (Edna Mode is nothing but a legend). There is enough action not to beat the strong plot that makes this film a cinematic masterpiece.

Turning a child’s usual fear of monsters into a surprisingly moving film is nothing more than a genius for storytelling. Monsters, Inc., for a fear factory driven by the screams of human children, follows the incredible bond between two monsters and a little girl named Boo, setting the stage for another intriguing and suffocating story.

I can’t remember laughing as much during a Pixar movie as I watched Turning Red. The film follows the story of Meiling Lee, a 13-year-old girl who suddenly begins to turn into a giant red panda when stressed or excited (a metaphor for strange bodily changes during puberty). As this film takes place in 2002, it enters the nostalgia through details such as Meilin’s Tamagotchi and 4 * Town, the hottest boy gang. It is also incredibly useful, emphasizing the importance of culture, family and strong female role models. The story was fascinating, the jokes were fun, and things for home were moving. What more could you ask for?

Turning Red debuted on March 11 at Disney Plus.

This second part of the Toy Story franchise supports the miracle and comedy that made the original stand out. It also effectively builds on the plot, avoiding the pitfalls of many sequels that simply bring back the events and themes of their predecessors.

This film balances meaningful lessons about the complexity of a child-parent relationship with fun, lively characters and memorable phrases (“Just keep swimming …”). The many twists in the plot will keep viewers investing in Nemo and Father Marlin’s journey through a fascinatingly animated underwater world.

Disney

Pixar’s imagination is enhanced in Inside Out, one of the most profound and thought-provoking films. The film touches on a number of human emotions and illustrates the impact and significance of each, both good and bad. This is one of those rare films that is fun and stimulating for both younger audiences and older viewers and will make you think about its meaning long after the titles come out.

Pixar

While the sequels are often pale compared to the original film, Toy Story 3 is a very strong exception. The film explores the bitter realities of change and growth, while touching on the indestructible ties we have with the people, places and moments that shaped us as we grew up. Keep a tissue box close to this one.

Disney

Nothing compares to that heartbreaking montage near the beginning of the movie (if you know, you know). During the film, Up touches on feelings of love, loss and closure, creating a touching story of the power of opening, releasing and releasing your emotions. In addition to some tear-jerking scenes, Up also offers a lot of laughter by pairing Russell, a jubilant, curious boy, with Karl Fredriksen, a capricious old man – which also leads to some surprisingly tender moments.

With a team of memorable characters, a touching storyline, strong points and an animation that is remarkably outdated, Toy Story is as timeless as possible. The film about toys that come to life when people are not watching, captivatingly touches the wonder and imagination of childhood. As Pixar’s first feature film and the first all-computer animated film, Toy Story also had an undeniable impact on the film industry, laying the groundwork for the countless computer animated films that followed. It stands out as a film that never gets old, no matter how many times you watch it or how old you are.
