Finding Nemo Turns 15

(Welcome to The Disney Discourse, a recurring feature where Josh Spiegel discusses the latest in Disney news. He goes deep on everything from the animated classics to the theme parks to live-action franchises. In this edition: Finding Nemo turns 15 and it represents much of what Pixar has spent the past few decades trying to say about families.)

Unlike even Walt Disney Animation Studios, which has had some level of creative and behind-the-scenes upheaval over more than eight decades, Pixar’s films have been consistently successful with audiences and at the box office. Technologically and creatively, Pixar’s filmmakers have made plenty of leaps from the first computer-animated feature, Toy Story, to last year’s Coco.

(Welcome to Let’s Get Animated!, a column that spotlights the best of film animation. In this edition: here are the most essential stop-motion animated movies.)

With every new Pixar movie comes the promise of another one of the studio’s beautifully constructed, deeply felt animated shorts. And the upcoming short paired with the highly anticipated Incredibles 2, the empty-nester fable Bao, looks like it will be all that and more. But it’s easy to forget that Pixar and Disney aren’t the be-all-end-all for affecting, cutting edge animated shorts. In fact, some of the best animated shorts may lie outside the realm of the two animation giants.

There’s a wealth of animated short films that have pushed the boundaries of animation and storytelling, both in and outside the Hollywood studio system. So let’s run down some of the best animated shorts that don’t come from Pixar or Disney.
