Disney buys Pixar for $7.4 billion and Pixar owner Steve Jobs ends up with 7% of Disney stock. 3.

Loosely based on the old tale of worker ants and lazy bullying grasshoppers, it is entertaining for adults and children alike. The clumsy and enthusiastic main character mistakenly hires circus performers instead of warriors to help free the colony from the grasshoppers. 5. Monsters, Inc. was released in 2001. John Goodman and Billy Crystal lend their voices to the two main characters, Sulley and Mike. The monsters find themselves in quite a predicament after a human child follows them into their world and they must find a way to return her to her room while trying to avoid detection. Monsters, Inc. 6. Nemo is my favorite of all the Disney Pixar animations. A young and adventurous clownfish is separated from his over-protective father after they have an argument. Marlin, the father, spends the movie battling the entire ocean to find his son. Meanwhile, Nemo, the son, has been taken to a fish tank and must try to escape before a little girl makes him go belly up. Finding Nemo 7. The Incredibles The Incredibles was released in 2004.

Lightning develops friendships with the other cars and helps to revitalize their town before he leaves. Cars 9. Ratatouille Thismovie was released in 2007 and is the only one that I personally havent watched. Ratatouille features a rat named Remy. He aspires to be a gourmet chef but encounters a few problems on the way, as it is not easy to convince people that a rat belongs in the kitchen. One human chef believes in him and the prove to make a good team. 10. Wall-E was released in 2008. It features a robot who was created to clean up earth in the future.
