And that is the furthest movie in the "animal" side of things. When it comes to A. Who is the main villain of this movie? You probably thought of Buddy, a. Syndrome, who basically commits genocide on super-powered humans.

Or does he? Buddy didn't have any powers. He used technology to enact revenge on Mr. Incredible for not taking him seriously. Seems a little odd that the man went so far as to commit genocide. And how does he kill all of the supers? He creates the omnidroid, an A. The omnidroid eventually turns on Syndrome, which leads us to believe that he was being manipulated by machines the entire time in order to wipe out the biggest threats to robot dominance, super-powered humans.

The Pixar Detective

The movie even shows clips of the superheroes with capes being done in by inanimate objects, such as plane turbines Also, some have questioned whether or not Syndrome actually was manipulated by his own technology. Keep in mind that the movie strongly suggests it takes place before modern times.

The beginning is set in what appears to be the late '60s or early '70s, meaning the events of the movie must be in the late '80s or early '90s. This is a proper setup for Toy Story, as we are starting to see machines questioning their purpose in life. It's possible that Syndrome created this technology to become better than his idol. That doesn't explain his thirst for blood revenge. It seems he became consumed by hatred, and leads me to suggest that the machines wanted him to use them to suit his needs, since they are his slaves after all.

It's either that, or the machines knew that killing off the supers was the only thing stopping them from dominating the world via BNL. We know that animals don't like humans because they are polluting the Earth and experimenting on them, but why would the machines have an issue? Enter Toy Story. Here we see humans using and discarding "objects" that are clearly sentient.

Yes, the toys love it Uncle Tom style, but over the course of the Toy Story sequels, we see toys becoming fed up. The toys rise up against Sid in the first movie. Jesse resents her owner, Emily, for abandoning her. Lotso Huggin' Bear straight up hates humans by the third movie. Toys are obviously not satisfied with the status quo, providing a reason for why machines would eventually be quick to wipe out the strongest humans.

With the super-humans all but gone, mankind is vulnerable.

Animals, who want to rise up Planet of the Apes style, have the ability to take over, but we don't see this happen. Also, A. Why do you think that is? It's reasonable to assume that machines did take over, just not as we expected. The machines used BNL, a faceless corporation which are basically faceless in nature to dominate the world. In each of the Toy Story movies, it's made painfully clear that sentient objects rely on humans for everything.

For fulfillment and even energy. It's hinted at that the Toys lose all life when put away in "storage" unless they are in a museum that will get them seen by humans.

So machines decide to control humans by using a corporation that suits their every need, leading to an industrial revolution that eventually leads to When the animals rise up against the humans to stop them from polluting the earth, who will save them? The machines. We know that the machines will win the war, too, because after this war, there are no animals ever to be seen again on Earth.

Who's left? Because the machines tip everything out of balance, Earth becomes an unfit planet for humans and animals, so the remaining humans are put on Axiom or Noah's Ark if you want to carry on the Biblical theme where Wall-E is basically Robot Jesus and his love interest is aptly named Eve as a last-ditch effort to save the human race. On Axiom, the humans have no purpose aside from having their needs met by the machines. The machines have made humans dependent on them for everything because that is how they were treated as "toys.

Meanwhile on Earth, machines are left behind to populate the world and run things, explaining human landmarks and traditions still being prominent in Cars.

There are no animals or humans in this version of Earth because they're all gone, but we do know that the planet still has many human influences left. In Cars 2, the cars go to Europe and Japan, making it plain that this is all taking place on Earth as we know it.

So what happened to the cars? We've learned by now that humans are the source of energy for the machines.

That's why they never got rid of them. In Wall-E, they point out that BNL intended to bring the humans back once the planet was clean again, but they failed.

The machines on Earth eventually died out, though we don't know how. What we do know is that there is an energy crisis in Cars 2, with oil being the only way society trudges on despite its dangers. We even learn that the Allinol corporation was using "green energy" as a catalyst for a fuel war in order to turn cars away from alternative energy sources.

That "clean" fuel could have been used to wipe out many of the cars, very quickly. Have you ever wondered why Wall-E was the only machine left? We know that the movie begins years after humans have left Earth on Axiom, governed by the AutoPilot another A. Could it be that Wall-E's fascination with human culture and friendship with a cockroach is what allowed him to keep finding fulfillment and the ability to maintain his personality?

That's why he was special and liberated the humans. He remembered the times when humans and machines lived in peace, away from all of the pollution caused by both sides. After Wall-E liberates the humans and they rebuild society back on Earth, what happens then? During the end credits of Wall-E, we see the shoe that contains the last of plant life.

It grows into a mighty tree.

A tree that strikingly resembles the central tree in A Bug's Life. That's right. The reason no humans exist in A Bug's Life is because there aren't a lot left. We know because of the cockroach that some of the insects survived, meaning they would have rebounded a bit faster, though the movie had to be far enough in the timeline for birds to have returned as well. But there's more.

Books by Jon Negroni

There's something strikingly different about A Bug's Life when compared to other Pixar portrayals of animals. Unlike Ratatouille, Up, and Finding Nemo, the bugs have many human activities similar to what the rats in Ratatouille were just experimenting with.

The bugs have cities, bars, know what a bloody mary is, and even have a travelling circus. This all assumes that the movie is in a different time period. The other factor that sets A Bug's Life apart from other Pixar movies is the fact that it is the only one, besides Cars and Cars 2, that doesn't revolve or even include humans. The reason I am so inclined to push the idea is because of how different the bug world is from the "animal" movies.

No other Pixar movie has animals wearing clothing, wild inventions, animals creating machines, or so much human influence like bars and cities. In Finding Nemo, the most human thing we see is a school, and even that is pretty stripped down. But in A Bug's Life, we have a world where humans are barely even implied. At one point, one of the ants tells Flik not to leave the island because there are "snakes, birds, and bigger bugs out there.

Yes, there are some humans, like the kid who allegedly picked the wings off of the homeless bug, but that still fits in a post Wall-E world. Also, the bugs have to be irradiated for them to live such long lifespans. The average lifespan of an ant is just three months, but these ants all survive an entire summer and allude to being around for quite some time. One of the ants even says he "feels 90 again. Humanity, machines, and animals grow in harmony to the point where a new super species is born.

The monsters civilization is actually Earth in the incredibly distant future. Where did they come from? It's possible that the monsters are simply the personified animals mutated after the diseased earth was radiated for years. I would guess that it took hundreds of years after Wall-E for the animals to become monsters] The alternative could be that humans and animals had to interbreed to save themselves. Gross, I know, but plausible since the lines between animals and humans are constantly up for debate in Pixar.

Whatever the reason, these monsters seem to all look like horribly mutated animals, only larger and civilized. They have cities and even colleges, as we see in Monsters University. I haven't settled on a theory I really like yet, but I'm leaning towards the idea that monsters and machines eventually forgot that they need humans and got rid of them again, not realizing their mistake until all humans died out, leading to the necessity for time travel.A must read for any pixar enthusiast!

When it comes to A.
