Pixar has swept up diverse audiences of children, adults, film critics and casual movie watchers on fantastical journeys to their fully realized animated worlds. That unparallelled run in quality, box office gross and awards has made them an unstoppably positive influence on modern movies.
Until now, men have dominated the spotlight in Pixar’s movies just as they often do in most others. As the big studio “female” paradigm (very) gently shifts away from romantic comedies toward raunchier fare like Bridesmaids and action blockbusters like The Hunger Games, it only makes sense that the Mrs. Incredibles, the Jessies and the EVEs would start to occupy the center of Pixar’s spotlight.
