From the Dummies Vault: Top 5 Pixar Movies

Over a year ago the Dummies ranked Top 5 Disney Animated Feature Films in a special CROSSOVER episode after spending a few years discussing and catching up to all of the Disney movies. Well we did it all over again, as Pixar Pals this time, watching every single Pixar movie (so far)! That’s right, we’re once again assembling the ultimate top five list as your Pals Tuong, Laura, Sam, and Brad duke it out to decide which story from the adventures of talking toys, to robots finding love, to listening to your emotions, and much more will be crowned our champ!

Disney Book Club – Bravely (2022)

If yeh had the chance to change the ending of a Pixar movie…would yeh? Well, the Pals have done exactly that, with a twist – they’ve powered down their screens and cracked open a spine for their first ever book club episode! It’s back to Castle Dunbroch and the world of Brave where we learn that Merida’s story was just getting started. But if she’s going to take on the new challenges awaiting her and her family, she’ll have to do it…Bravely.

PP28 – Inside Out 2 (2024)

Be cool, everyone – Inside Out 2 has arrived, Riley’s starting high school soon, and under NO CIRCUMSTANCES can we embarrass ourselves!! Good thing the Pixar Pals can keep their cool, even as anxiety, envy, and other new emotions arrive on the scene to heat things up. With more hands than ever on the steering wheel, Joy and the others have one last chance to shape Riley’s beliefs before anxiety takes control for good.

PP27 – Elemental (2023)

It’s time to get back to basics, back to foundations, back to…dare we say…the elements? The Pixar Pals are following the fiery young Lumen family to Element City as they build a new home, business, and life in a completely unfamiliar land that’s less than friendly to fire types. But when sparks fly between the Lumen’s daughter Ember and city inspector Wade, Elemental really starts to heat up.

PP26 – Lightyear (2022)

Have you ever wanted to know more about your favourite space ranger? Turns out it doesn’t matter, because Pixar is going to tell you anyways, as the Pixar Pals blast off with Lightyear – the fictional-turned-actual movie about a fictional astronaut turned fictional-turned-actual toy. Are you confused yet? Not to worry, the Pals have already sent an SOS to Star Command about where in the universe things went wrong, and as soon as they get the hyperspace fuel crystal right we’ll escape the effects of time dilation! Also, there’s a cute cat robot.

PP25 – Turning Red (2022)

Some might argue that a mother’s love is the greatest power of all, but in Turning Red, a teenage girl’s boy band obsession will give that love a run for its money – that is, if she can make enough money to afford the concert tickets. While the Pixar Pals learn pretty quickly that there’s Nobody Like U, their fellow 4*Townies Meilin and friends navigate the complicated and often contradictory priorities that come with familial responsibility, extraordinary friendship, and growing up a tiny bit different from everyone else.

PP24 – Luca (2021)

They say everything’s better down where it’s wetter, but what if the seagrass isn’t always greener? The Pixar Pals are following the current of a curious young sea monster who’s about to learn a thing or two about wanting to be where the people are – as well as where the pasta, Vespas, and gelato can be found – while a village is turned upside down forever as Luca lands on, well, land, and discovers what it means to accept and be accepted for exactly who you are. It’s a heartwarming tale that’s cold blooded – in the best way.

PP23 – Soul (2020)

A little spark can be a handy thing for lighting a fire, but what’s a soul to do when they can’t seem to find theirs? Enter Joe, a not-quite-dead man walking who’s looking for any possible route from the great beyond back to Earth – but preferably one that’s going to get him to his gig at 7 tonight. As Joe encounters many a misadventure in his attempts to find his way back, he and the Pixar Pals are about to learn a valuable lesson about finding your spark, discovering your purpose, and living every minute.

PP22 – Onward (2020)

In a world of dungeons, dragons, and classic teenage high school drama, it’s tough being an elf who just wants to fit in – and as the Pals will learn in Onward, overenthusiastic older brothers don’t exactly make things any easier. But while it can take a lot of imagination to get past a sibling’s seemingly embarrassing hobbies or odd quirks to embrace them for who they are, in the end, their own extraordinary imagination might turn out to be the best thing about them.
