How Pixar’s Animation evolved over the last 30 years


With Finding Dory already looking like another solid hit, perhaps even a mega-hit, for Pixar, it’s a good time to reflect back at how far Pixar has come in terms of its animation technique and skill.

In 30+ years, the technology has changed a lot allowing Pixar to do so much more. (The nearly photorealestic animation in The Good Dinosaur being a good example.)

The original cg animated feature “Toy Story” looks very dated now and will probably look like stick figures compared to what the technology will achieve in the next 30 years. And yet, it was incredibly groundbreaking when it was released. Hard to keep that in perspective sometimes.

The good news is that the stories Pixar are famous for telling still hold up and that makes the early movies very watchable. Which Pixar movie is your favorite?
