* WhiteAndGrayMorality: ToyStory and ToyStory2. Sid is the villain of the first one, but he really is just a kid who is sadistic towards toys. Stinky Pete may be the villain of the sequel but he is only that because he is forced to taking extreme measures. He even is actually a father figure to Woody at first.

On November 21, 2017 -- a few months after [[Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany Harvey Weinstein]] and several other individuals were accused of sexual misconduct in Hollywood -- it came to light that Lasseter was responsible for sexual harassment with some of his employees, apparently kissing them and touching their legs. Lasseter has since apologized for his actions and took a leave of absence from the company.



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

''Up'' is about the love between Carl and Ellie and the relationship surrogate Grandfather-surrogate grandson relationship between Carl and Russell. WesternAnimation/''InsideOut'' is literally about Emotions working together.
** He also loved getting child actors to record silly, stream-of-consciousness dialogue in his films, going all the way back to his thesis film ''Next Door''.
** Born and raised in Bloomington, Minnesota, his nostalgia for the state occasionally pops up. His second student film ''Winter'' is based on his own experiences with the heavy snowfall there and the family in ''Inside Out'' have just moved from Minnesota to San Francisco.

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 Creator/{{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''.

Since then, he's always had a role, however minor, in every feature produced at the studio, to the point where Andrew Stanton just decided to [[TheDanza name Ratzenberger's role after him]] in ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', and the practice was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in a credits sequence in ''Cars''.

John Lasseter calls him "the true unsung hero of animation", so Bud Luckey may not be as new a name as many would think. You seen that "10 Tiny Turtles" hand-drawn sequence featured in the earlier episodes of ''Series/SesameStreet''? That's his animation. Now, his low, elderly, but comforting voice allows him to be a returning voice actor and employee of Pixar. He was a character designer there from the beginning, on ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', where he originated Woody's look. They eventually gave him the opportunity to produce the short "Boundin'", which he composed, wrote, sung, voiced, designed, storyboarded, and directed all himself, and is inspired by his Montana upbringing and the myths that came with it. He also illustrated over 100 children's books.

The Regulars' lone east coaster (a native of Boston, MA), Andrew Stanton joined Pixar in 1990, after briefly working on the 1980s ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' cartoon and screening a few shorts of ''Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Animation Festival.'' He worked as a writer for the ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' films, ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc.'', and ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' (which he also co-directed) before directing ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. For the next few years, he worked on his next film as a director, ''WesternAnimation/WallE''. Like ''Finding Nemo'', ''WALL•E'' was a critical and financial success. Also like ''Nemo'', it ranks as one of Pixar's most... er... ''[[TearJerker emotional]]'' films, so tissues are highly recommended.

His first live-action project was the LiveActionAdaptation of ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' for Creator/{{Disney}}. Expect this to have destroyed his ProtectionFromEditors.

His first Stanton made his live-action project was debut in 2012 with Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''Film/JohnCarter'', which bombed hard enough to take his ProtectionFromEditors with it. His live-action career survived, however, as he would later direct two episodes of the LiveActionAdaptation second season of ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' for Creator/{{Disney}}. Expect this to have destroyed his ProtectionFromEditors.

* CentralTheme: Love between two or people and the extents people go for those they care about. ''Wall-E'' is about two robots who suddenly fall in love. ''Finding Nemo'' is about a fathers ocean search for his son, and ''Finding Dory'' is about a fish looking for her two parents.
