The power of Pixar in 6 minutes

Pixar

Everyone probably remembers the first time they cried during a Pixar film (and if you don’t you should probably look into getting that heart fixed). For me, it was during the opening montage of Up, scored by the incomparable Michael Giacchino. For others, it might be when Andy is about to give Woody away at the end of Toy Story 3. Or when EVE urges Wall-E to wake up again.

For over two decades, Pixar has been the standard bearer for telling stories via animation that somehow know exactly how to make us laugh, cry and shout in wonderment. And now some of those key emotional scenes have been edited together into this absolutely stunning video from Lindsay McCutcheon that reminds us of all the times that Pixar gave us the feels.

Go ahead, I dare you not to get at least a little choked up when you start reminiscing about all the great moments in Pixar movie history. And tough it out through the first half that focuses on the sad moments in our favorite character’s lives. I promise you the second half more than makes it worthwhile.
