Production Studio

Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios

Wonder why The Incredibles is such a wonderfully animated tour de force? Well, that might have something to do with it being produced by two of the greatest animation studios in the history of, uh…history.

In fact, Disney's 1945 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was the first full-length animated film ever released. As we know, Disney would go on to dominate the medium of animation for the remainder of the century—that is, until the arrival of the dreaded computer. Suddenly Disney's hand-animation seemed passé and quaint in comparison to the polygons produced by a PC, leaving the King of Animation looking more like a jester.

Enter Pixar Animation Studios. Pixar was founded in 1979, first as a part of George Lucas' Lucasfilm, then as an independent studio partially owned by Steve Jobs. (Talk about pedigree.) It took some time for the studio to release its first full-length picture with 1995's Disney-distributed Toy Story, but it was worth the wait. Toy Story went to infinity and beyond, earning nearly $400 mil in the box office and turning Pixar into a household name.

With its heir apparent, Walt Disney purchased Pixar in 2006 and made the hottest free agent in the game the star player on its team. And it paid off big-time. Whether we're talking about Finding Nemo, Cars, Coco, or The Incredibles, Pixar is now known the world over for producing the highest-quality animated films of its era.
