** Fans noticed all of Pixar's movies were all male-lead and started asking for some films starring women and girls to balance it out. Pixar has since responded with ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', and ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory''. The fandom seems split on whether the first one is a positive step forward or not, being criticized as a stereotypical princess movie. Fortunately, the the latter two did much better critically and financially, with ''Finding Dory'' even becoming the highest-grossing animated movie of its time (in terms of the North American box office).

* {{Sequelitis}}: Zig-zagged. The ''Franchise/ToyStory'' series is widely regarded as one of the best film series' of all time, while ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' is considered a very good followup to ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' (although not quite as impressive). Any of the other sequels they've done, however, are often criticized for feeling completely unnecessary.

* HypeBacklash: When you've been around for close to 30 years and almost all of your movies have received nothing but critical acclaim and oodles of cash, this is to be expected.

* DorkAge: [[WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}} After]] [[WesternAnimation/WallE a]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} hot]] [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 streak]] towards the end of the 2000s, Pixar ran into a series of films that had poorer reception between [[TheNewTens 2011-2013]], with other films in production at the time feeling the whiplash. ''Cars 2'' began it, being the studio's first film in its entire history to be a critical flop, as well as its first since the creation of the "Best Animated Feature" Oscar not to get a nomination. Their next [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} two]] [[WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity films]] were [[BrokenBase incredibly polarizing]], and while ''Brave'' won the aforementioned Oscar, it was generally considered undeserving over ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. As their next film, ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', entered [[TroubledProduction hot waters]], John Lasseter caught on and decided to [[ScheduleSlip postpone it]] to save the studio further embarrassment. The next film in the roster, ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', was critically lauded as another Pixar masterpiece and a return to form... and then ''The Good Dinosaur'' finally came out, was written off as [[SoOkayItsAverage aggressively mediocre]], became the studio's first financial flop and left [[BrokenBase many worried]] that ''Inside Out'' was just a fluke. Even before all of this, John Lasseter acknowledged that the studio had entered an awkward transitional period as the original creators were [[PassingTheTorch training up-and-coming filmmakers to succeed them]], but the successors weren't turning out the kind of films they were looking for (Lasseter being the head of both Pixar ''and'' Disney also undoubtably put a strain on his own contributions). Thankfully, ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' was successful and well-enough received to save the studio some face and shortly thereafter, [[AndTheFandomRejoiced Lasseter publicly announced that Pixar would not be making any sequels in the coming decade]]. Time will tell what the general public will think of ''WesternAnimation/Cars3'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}'', though hopes for both ''Toy Story 4'' and ''The Incredibles 2'' remain very high.
