Can You Name These Pixar Characters?
Every Pixar fan can give you a list of their favorite Pixar characters, from best to good, because Pixar films have done a great job of always focusing on building a story around an iconic character, and not the other way around.
Even when you hear a movie title like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, or Monsters Inc, you’ll first think about the lovable stars of the films. Characters like Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Dory, Sully, and Mr. Incredible have won fans around the world. The characters from our favorite Pixar movies helped to define the company into an international success.
How many Pixar characters do you think you can name?
Many of our favorite Pixar characters are created before the story is even written. This is one of the studio's secrets to building such lovable and memorable stories. If you hear Toy Story, you are going to think about Woody and Buzz Lightyear. The same goes for Monsters Inc. starring Sully and Mike. Miguel and Hector from Coco are the reason we love that film. Only Pixar could take a rat named Remy and create Ratatouille, a beautiful masterpiece of computer animation. Pixar was also the masterminds that gave us Cars, Inside Out, and Soul.
These characters--whether they're human, animal, monsters, or other beings--are what makes Pixar the best animation studio in the industry today. They wrote amazing stories with characters strong enough to carry the film.
