Pixar: A Mirror of Disney

Since last year's unforgettable "Up" and this summer's record-breaking "Toy Story 3," we all (well, most of us if not all) can agree that Pixar can never go wrong (to paraphrase from a movie buff). But more than the successful and unforgettable films they've made (as well as their stories and characters) and the constantly-groundbreaking technology, perhaps the greatest thing pixar has achieved and sustained is a legacy that mirrors that of Walt Disney himself. Such a legacy involved a pursuit of achieving the essentially impossible (look at "Ratatouille," "WALL*E" and "Up"), and also an emphasis on what is worthwhile, what is convincing, what is real, and not just for the sake of being made.

Any additional thoughts or comments? Feel free to do so.
