List RulesFilms released by Pixar Animation Studios

When the worst Pixar movie you can think of is still better than almost every other animated movie in the last 50 years, you know you've got a good thing going. This list of all Pixar films is ranked best to worst, but it's probably better to think of it as ranked from greatest to less great. Of the 20 Pixar movies that have been released, a good percentage are already on the list of the best movies ever, and the company has already found a place on the list of the top film franchises with the Toy Story trilogy (no doubt Cars isn't far behind).

From WALL-E to Finding Nemo, there is no shortage of quality coming out of Disney and Pixar studios. The hard part is deciding which Pixar films are best, and ranking them against each other, which is why this list of Pixar films exists.

What is the best Pixar movie? How many movies has Pixar made? You should be able to answer these questions after perusing the list of Pixar films ranked best to still ok, but not the best. Make sure to upvote your favorite Pixar movies so other fans will know just what the greatest Pixar movie really is.
