Just one little thing Bonafide Boss, Disney didn't actually buy Pixar till 2006, so any films before then were not produced by Disney. (Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo).

It is just opinion if someone classes any pre 2006 Pixar films as actual Disney films or not or just acquired catalogue,

My list is based on IMDb data.

Disney is listed under "Production Companies" on the company credits page of those titles on IMDb.

You see, there are 22 titles with Disney credits (as both producer and distributor) from the IMDb top 250 list (link). But I've only added the ones that have Disney listed under their production company credits.

Just Googling it now, you've made me learn something. The films were produced by Pixar and distributed by Disney. I didn't know Disney distributed them. But they definitely didn't own the studio till 2006.

It is possible information on IMDB may be incorrect just like Wikipedia may not always be accurate, I've spotted a few things over the years. IMDB I tend to use as a bible when comes to film and TV, but I've been proven wrong a couple of times blindly sourcing information off here. 

I can evidence it. For example, on Pixar's very own website, Monsters Inc for example it lists the producer as Darla K Anderson who was employed by Pixar, not Disney. Exec producers John Lassiter and Andrew Stanton both again employed by PIxar not Disney. Finally the associate producer Kori Rae, yet another employee of Pixar.

IMDb is wrong if it is listing Disney as producer.

No disrespect to IMDb or anyone on here, but information about a PIxar production I would trust the information on Pixar's very own website than a 3rd party or independent site. If 1 site is saying A and every single other sites are saying B, I'd have to take B as fact.

Movie Producers and Production Companies are different.


Check this:

One of the two Toy Story (1995) producers was Bonnie Arnold who was recruited by Peter Schneider and John Lasseter to work on 'Toy Story' for Disney. You can find her name on Pixar official website.


I admit, IMDb can be wrong, but these titles are on the Top 250 list and they weren't added there just today. These titles are also very famous (500k+ votes); don't you think someone would've noticed this info and tried to correct them if they were wrong.

Both Disney and Pixar are large companies, they must have someone here to take care of these things since IMDb is considered the world's most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV, and celebrity content. (self-claimed lol)

- IMDb is not the only site to list Disney a production company of those films, you know. :)

It is possible for information to be incorrect even on official sites. I dread to think how many millions of facts are on IDMb and it is very likely there are some incorrect information out there.

Pixar and Disney were 2 separate companies until Disney acquired Pixar in 2006. Disney and Pixar did work together on some projects signing an agreement in the early 90s, but Disney was the distributor. If Disney produced Toy Story, why did they order Pixar to shut down production, unless Pixar produced it!!!! (Again on Pixar's website).

Maybe someone has put Disney as the production company because they can't differentiate what was 2 separate companies and has been left incorrect over time. Now most people see Pixar and Disney as the one and same and think they always have been. Disney and Pixar worked on joint projects before Pixar were acquired.

My ex fiance does works in psychology and when she researches information, as you can appreciate she is only allowed to use certain sites, not sites where the general public can edit information and even then she has to research a minimum of 3 reputable sites for the same topic. There is a reason for that. She wouldn't be allowed to use IMDb for research purposes if the need ever arose. This is a perfect example of wrong information being available.

Problem with a site that can be edited by the general public. What is to stop me going onto a page and putting wrong information on either by accident or deliberately?  Or even creating a new page. Within a couple of days of creating an account, I flagged up an error I saw on a films facts. Evidencing the error (like I have done above) the administrator removed the information. That information had been on the site about 5 years, maybe even longer.

You could prove me wrong. Send the information and link to Pixar's pages to an administrator regards the errors, and I bet they will correct it rather than leave it as it is.

Bonnie Arnold was a freelance producer that worked for various companies.

Forgot to mention. When Disney ordered Pixar to stop production, it was down to Pixar to save Toy Story. I'm presenting loads of facts and evidencing where I've found the information. Just Google "who produced Toy Story" and see what comes up. Granted they are fandom sites and wikipedia, not 100% fully trusted sites, but there are no conflicting results coming up.

If I'm wrong, I will gladly hold my hands up. But you know what, I'm going off official sites for the information.

Can a Champion shed some light on this?

Hey Commodore Boz,

It's been a week and since no Champion has replied to this, I've got something that should help.

I asked a question regarding "whether an uncredited director can be called the director of a film" (link) and a champion replied, "If IMDb lists someone as a director it should mean that they have reason to think he was, in fact, a director of the film."

So, I guess, we can say the same for companies. If IMDb lists a company as a production company of a project, then it should've been somehow involved in the production of the project.

And since, Disney is indeed listed as the production company on IMDb of those films you mentioned, I guess they are eligible for my lists too.

Now, I know what you're trying to say, that IMDb can be wrong. Well, if you believe that, feel free to create a new conversation or contact IMDb privately.

:)

So early! Any special reason?

Usually, new polls are published around midnight (12 AM EST).
