He also served as executive producer for both ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' 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.

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-Creator/{{Pixar}} works are the "Family Dog" episode of ''Series/AmazingStories'' and the 1999 Warner Bros film ''WesternAnimation/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''.

He was working on a live-action film titled ''1906'', jointly produced by Creator/{{Disney}}, Creator/{{Pixar}}, and (you read that right) Disney's old rival WarnerBros, which centers around the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco. This project may be on hold, however, as Bird has directed ''Film/MissionImpossibleGhostProtocol'' and ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}''. He is now working on writing a sequel to ''The Incredibles''.

Lee Unkrich has co-directed and edited films since he joined the team in 1994. Originally an editor on ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', he's co-directed three other Creator/{{Pixar}} films. His first directing project was ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''. He is also quite fond of {{Twitter}} and spent the first few days after ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'''s release reading through fans' tweets and reviews that were sent to him, in many cases [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming replying to them individually thanking them for the support]]. You can follow him [[http://www.twitter.com/leeunkrich here.]]

Gary Rydstrom is probably most famous for his sound design work on films like ''Film/JurassicPark'', ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'', and ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan''. His first work for Creator/{{Pixar}}, in fact, was the sound design for the first five PixarShorts directed by John Lasseter. He then became the go-to guy for sound design and mixing from the first ''Franchise/ToyStory'' movie to ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' and returned in 2012 with ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}''. He made his directorial debut with the theatrical short ''Lifted''. He was slated to direct Newt, but following its cancellation, he instead directed ''[[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Hawaiian Vacation]]'' before moving back to Creator/SkywalkerSound the year of its release. Outside of Pixar, he has directed the English dubs of three Creator/StudioGhibli films: ''Anime/TalesFromEarthsea'' and ''[[Anime/{{Arrietty}} The Borrower Arrietty]]'' (North American Dub), and ''Anime/TheWindRises''. Most recently, he directed ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' at Lucasfilm.

Producer of ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', and several PixarShorts, Darla has also received special thanks for her involvement with almost every other Pixar project, starting from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' onward. Currently holds the Guinness World Record for having the highest average gross per movie for a producer ($221 million per movie) though given the company she works for that's hardly surprising. The character of [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo Darla]] was named after her by Stanton as revenge for all the practical jokes she's played on him.

Joe Ranft worked on scripts and storyboards for many animated films, both {{Pixar}} and non-Pixar. After doing story work on ''WesternAnimation/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}}''.

Randy Newman 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''.

{{Pixar}} features and shorts he's written and performed music for:

Like his cousin, Randy, Thomas Newman already had experience as a composer before he was hired by {{Pixar}}. He was first hired to write the score for ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', which he got an Oscar nod for. Perhaps not so coincidentally, his second work for Pixar was another Andrew Stanton film, ''WesternAnimation/WallE''.

If you look in the credits of several {{Pixar}} {{film}}s, you might start to notice a pattern: namely, how some of the same crew or cast members keep appearing. Listed here are some of the recurring directors, writers, and other notable people behind some of the best [[strike:[=CGI=]]] {{film}}s ever made.

John's eye for quality is no doubt the reason why, when Creator/{{Disney}} merged with Creator/{{Pixar}} back in 2006, he was not only made Chief Creative Officer of both Pixar ''and'' Disney Feature Animation, but also Principal Creative Advisor for Disney's Imagineering department, meaning he even has creative say in theme park rides. [[ExecutiveMeddling While his decisions at Disney]] did cause a bit of behind-the-scenes drama (his insistence on changes for ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' led director Chris Sanders (of ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'') to leave the company), general consensus is that he's doing the studio a ''huge'' favor. After becoming Chief Creative Officer, he cancelled all of the Disney sequels in production and greenlighted ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. Lasseter has since opted for [=DisneyToon=] Studios to produce more original properties and spinoffs, such as the ''[[Franchise/DisneyFairies Tinker Bell]]'' films and the spinoff from ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', titled ''WesternAnimation/{{Planes}}''. Somewhat ironically, the hope for Disney to continue creating traditionally animated feature films largely lies with him; despite playing a large part in computer animation becoming more dominant, he's expressed interest in bringing 2D animation back.
