6 Pixer Movies Worth Watch (2022-2018): Pixar has created films that touch on the human experience in the most unexpected and stunning ways since the debut of Toy Story in 1995.
Pixar filmmakers have examined our difficulties with tragedy, loss, and sadness (including the meaning of life) as well as the importance of love, family, and friendship through colorful characters and anthropomorphized toys, cars, animals, and robots.
Each of Pixar’s 26 feature films deals with love and loss in a unique way, making it difficult to rate them. This selection is bound to ruffle some feathers, which is a measure of how important these films are to audiences.

The film began development in 2018 after Shi submitted it to Pixar in October 2017. It was inspired by Shi’s experiences growing up in Toronto. It’s the first Pixar picture directed exclusively by a woman, and the second with an Asian protagonist (after Up, 2009).

Onward is a computer-animated urban fantasy adventure film released by Walt Disney Pictures in 2020. It was developed by Pixar Animation Studios.
The film is set in a suburban fantasy world and follows two elf brothers named Ian and Barley Lightfoot as they go on a quest to acquire an artifact that would bring their deceased father back to life for 24 hours before it’s too late.
The death of Scanlon’s father in a car accident while Scanlon and his older brother were very small children inspired the concept of Onward. In July 2017, the film was unveiled during the D23 Expo.
Onward had its world premiere on February 21, 2020, at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival, and was distributed in theatres in the United States on March 6, 2020.

Following the popularity of The Incredibles, Bird decided to put the sequel on hold in order to focus on other projects.
