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''.

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 ''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.

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}}''.

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 five {{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''.

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.

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 {{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]]''. 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.

Originally at Disney, she joined [=DreamWorks=] when former studio chief Jeff Katzenberg started the firm up and directed ''The Prince Of Egypt''. She became disenchanted with DWA and jumped to Pixar as a creative team member and director of ''Brave''. Sadly, a bout of ExecutiveMeddling regarding that movie led to her transferring to ILM and then back to Katzenberg and [=DreamWorks=] when Disney purchased ILM as part of their Lucasfilm package.

Ed Catmull was recruited by GeorgeLucas in 1979 to head up a group to bring computer graphics and digital editing to film. There, he developed digital image compositing technology for blending multiple images and computer-graphics algorithms such as the Catmull-Rom spline and the Catmull–Clark subdivision surface. When Steve Jobs bought Lucasarts' digital division and founded Pixar, Catmull was appointed Chief Technical Officer, where he was a key developer of Pixar's [=RenderMan=] film rendering system.

After he was fired from {{Apple|Macintosh}} and founded [=NeXT=], Steve Jobs bought Pixar off of [[Creator/GeorgeLucas Lucasfilm]] in 1986 for $10 million, largely on the strength of John Lasseter's belief in the future of computer animation. Jobs continued to pour money into Pixar even as it failed to profit as a medical imaging software company, and allowed it to find its footing producing computer-animated commercials. Jobs' tenacity was ultimately vindicated by the subsequent success of Pixar, and he was the largest shareholder in both Disney and Pixar, with 7% of the shares.
