My vote:

21. Toy Story 4 (2019)

When Bo Peep gets taken away, the car driven by the new owner has the license plate RMRF97. it's a sort of meta-Toy Story 2 (1999) reference. It's an often repeated story that the second Toy Story film was nearly entirely lost when the main file was accidentally deleted from the main Pixar servers. This license plate references the computer command which nearly erased the movie. the Unix command "rm", with "rm -rf" standing for removing all files recursively in a given directory and without confirmation. Thankfully, a pregnant employee had a backup copy of the film on her home computer, which had to be gently driven to Pixar HQ in order to save the movie.

Good one. I'm sure you would never have made such a serious computer error, Dan.

I'd probably vote for #24 about the The Cave, not because it's my favorite in the sense of "oh, I'm so glad that happened," of course, but it's the one that I find most interesting and sticks with me because I find it sad and outrageous. It has a gravity that most of the others don't have. 

My favorite of the more lighthearted ones is that Ronan told Gerwig that she was going to play Jo. Like Gerwig said, it does seem like something Jo would do and I also could imagine Ronan's Ladybird character doing that. I like that.

I've just read that the director of The Cave has now been allowed to travel to the US.

Jojo Rabbit.  Don't really wanna see it but the fact and director's decision is interesting.
I would say Frozen II, but I already knew about kulning, lol.
