He also served as executive producer for both ''Disney/PrincessAndTheFrog'' and the recent ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' movie. ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'', incidentally, currently has a [[RottenTomatoes Tomatometer]] rating of 90% so don't think he's lost his touch yet.

RandyNewman was, of course, already a well-established singer, songwriter, and composer by the time he was hired to work on the score for ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' (despite the skepticism of Creator/{{Disney}} executives). Since then, he's done the score for seven {{Pixar}} {{film}}s, and he can thank the studio - or, more specifically, ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc.'' - for finally getting him an Oscar in 2002 (for Best Song) after being nominated ''fifteen times''. He's also responsible for probably the most [[TearJerker tear-jerking]] song in the Pixar {{canon}}: "When She Loved Me ([[AffirmativeActionGirl Jessie's]] Song)" from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2''.

RandyNewman also composed the music for the Lasseter-produced ''PrincessAndTheFrog'', the 49th film in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon.

John Lasseter has been with Pixar since the early days at Lucasfilm. Originally a Creator/{{Disney}} animator, Lasseter was inspired by ''Film/{{Tron}}'' to try to make a computer-animated feature film, but was fired while trying to adapt Thomas M. Disch's novella ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'' (which was distributed by Disney but made by independent company Hyperion). At Lucasfilm, he created its first four [[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts short films]], including his most famous short, ''Luxo, Jr.'' He also directed Pixar's first feature film, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', for which he got a Special Achievement Award at the Oscars. After ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', he stuck to executive producing Pixar's films for a while, though he still provided creative input into the companies' films. He returned to directing with the film ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', which, despite performing weaker and not being as well received as the other Pixar films, still got more good reviews than most other animated films that year and made a [[IncrediblyLamePun truckload]] of money, particularly through merchandising. His latest directorial effort, ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2'', proved an artistic debacle that shattered the near spotless artistic reputation of the company such as leading to Pixar being shut out of contention for that year's Best Animated Feature Oscar for the first time in the award's history. Not wanting to cause the studio further embarrassment, John snapped into action by postponing the TroubledProduction ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' by a year to ensure that the next film in their roster, ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', would be on par with their other classics.

One of Lasseter's old friends at Cal Arts, where they were in the same character animation class in Room A113. A latecomer to Pixar, Bird already had some directing experience before coming on board. His most notable pre-{{Pixar}} works are the "Family Dog" episode of ''Series/AmazingStories'' and the 1999 Warner Bros film ''TheIronGiant''. He also worked on ''Literature/ThePlagueDogs'' (1982), a dark and gritty British animated film based on the sequel to ''WatershipDown''; co-wrote Creator/StevenSpielberg's ''Film/BatteriesNotIncluded''; and directed two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (both centered around Krusty the Clown), as well as the music video for ''Do the Bartman''.

Joe Ranft worked on scripts and storyboards for many animated films, both {{Pixar}} and non-Pixar. After doing story work on ''TheBraveLittleToaster'', Ranft worked on several Creator/{{Disney}} films, from ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' to ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' to ''Disney/TheLionKing''. He joined {{Pixar}} in 1992, and did story work on ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' (the most famous scene he storyboarded being the "Army Men" scene in that film). Ranft went on to write and storyboard other animated films, including most of Pixar's, and also voiced a few characters in several films, including Heimlich the caterpillar in ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', Wheezy the penguin in ''Toy Story 2'', and Jacques the shrimp in ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. He was later made co-director of ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}''.

His first live-action project was the LiveActionAdaptation of ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' for Creator/{{Disney}}. Expect this to have destroyed his ProtectionFromEditors. He is currently signed on to direct the ''Finding Nemo'' sequel ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', which will be released in 2016.
