Pixar Animation Studios, commonly known as just Pixar, is an American computer animation studio known for its critically and commercially successful computer-animated feature films. It is based in Emeryville, California, and is a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studios, which is owned by The Walt Disney Company. Pixar has produced 25 feature films, beginning with Toy Story (1995), which is the first fully computer-animated feature film.
The film was directed by John Lasseter (in his feature directorial debut), and written by Joss Whedon, Andrew Stanton, Joel Cohen, and Alec Sokolow from a story by Lasseter, Stanton, Pete Docter, and Joe Ranft.
Taking place in a world where toys come to life when humans are not present, the plot focuses on the relationship between an old-fashioned pull-string cowboy doll named Woody and an astronaut action figure, Buzz Lightyear, as they evolve from rivals competing for the affections of their owner, Andy Davis, to friends who work together to be reunited with Andy after being separated from him.
The film received critical acclaim, and holds a rare 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was praised for the technical innovation of the 3D animation, wit and thematic sophistication of the screenplay, musical score, and vocal performances (particularly Hanks and Allen); it is considered by many to be one of the best-animated films ever made.
The film received three Academy Award nominations (Best Original Screenplay (the first animated film to be nominated for this award), Best Original Song for “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, and Best Original Score) as well as winning a Special Achievement Academy Award.
