Pixar Era Analysis – A Bug’s Life

As mentioned in a previous blog post, I’ll be writing analysis content on all 26 of Pixar’s animated feature films and their film making eras.

The first era is the Golden Age, which ran from 1995 to 2004 and started with Pixar’s debut animated feature film, Toy Story. As mentioned in a previous blog post, the Golden Age is known as the Age where Pixar pioneered and highlighted their then-new technological style, and made films that focused on great attention to detail and storytelling, with each film evolving from the previous one, with their debut film, Toy Story, setting the precedent. The films in this Age also focused on themes of hope, happiness, and togetherness.

So how did A Bug’s Life measure up to the above features of the Golden Age and was it the right choice for Pixar’s second film and follow-up to their massively successful debut film, Toy Story?
