The Incredibles 2 (2018) – Brad Bird

It’s been twenty-three years since Pixar became THE name in family entertainment, and it has been fourteen years since we last checked in with the Parr family, known collectively as The Incredibles.

Monsters, Inc. (2001) – Peter Docter

The next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of Toy Story is this Pixar classic starring Billy Crystal and John Goodman as two monsters trying to keep their world alive.
