The majority of the Pixar films have obsolescence as a principal theme. I feel this is most likely because the young artists that worked on those films and clearly the elderly musicians that arrived out of the conventional 2D animation world believed hand drawn animation was likely to be their life's work. After all, the"magical" of cartoon, according to Disney, was in observing drawings come to life.
The appearance of computer cartoon is a lot more akin to version cartoon or Claymation which ironically undergone a resurgence of popularity following the growth of computer animation. An individual would think that it could have been model cartoon, which computer cartoon closely resembles, which would have been substituted, not hand drawn cartoon.
So lots of the great Pixar films are all about the old giving way to the new. One of the numerous examples are;
A Bug's Life - A set of down and out theatre troupe bugs get a opportunity to play with heroes and rescue their livelihoods and their lifestyles.
- The older method of collecting energy through cries is replaced by amassing laughter.
Finding Nemo - Dad reveals his his love by looking for his missing son.
The Incredibles - An entire"business" of super heroes have been placed from work and drop from style.
Automobiles - A little town bypassed with a new highway becomes rediscovered because of its nostalgic appeal.
Ratatouille - This has to have been a response to America's aggravation with France over the Iraq war because it attempts to correlate French cooking using swarms of rats. Not a fantastic instance of obsolescence and also a rare WTF?! Second for Pixar.
WALL-E - The entire world is trashed. Obsolescence into the extreme.
Up - an old guy with no motive to remain simply flies off.
Pixar movies are very well made on all amounts and they have been known for their heart. It's the bitter sweet understanding that the old must make way for the brand new that provides these pictures their sentimentality which likely comes out of the subconscious guilt Pixar must possess for so entirely replacing the conventional and beloved animated animation.
