The Pixar Points #4: Pixar's Storytelling

Hi everybody! Welcome back to this three-part series of Pixar's three most important parts. Last time we looked at their amazing animation, and now it's time for their stories!

Now the Pixar movies I'm going to use as examples of their storytelling are, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, and Up. Why am I using these movies? Because these are some of my favorite Pixar ideas (that is not WALL-E) Just read the plot and you are interested in it. In Finding Nemo, we have a story of how real lives work but with animated fish in a way that only Pixar could. In Ratatouille, we have a story of a rat that wants to cook, if this want any other company this would just be stupid. But Pixar makes it work with great characters! (I'll talk more about characters next time.) And finally in Up, we have flying houses, dogs that fly their own airplanes, dogs who can talk, mythical birds, an old man, and all in a way that feels some what REAL. And again, any other studio would make this a terrible movie but Pixar actually made it work.

Overall, Pixar makes story that sound like the worst movies ever but when they actually come out some become one of the best movies of the year! And that is something all movie and animation fans can enjoy. See you soon!

What do you think of Pixar's storytelling?
