The first Pixar movie to be released was “Toy Story,” with a theatrical release on Nov. 22, 1995.
The animated film’s cast includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles and Annie Potts. It follows Woody, a cowboy doll, and Buzz Lightyear, a space ranger action figure, and how the pair must set aside their differences to reunite with their owner Andy. 
“Toy Story” was the first animated film to be nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award category and received a Special Achievement Academy Award for the “first feature-length computer-animated film.” 
The movie sparked a franchise including three sequels — “Toy Story 2” released in 1999,“Toy Story 3” released in 2010 and “Toy Story 4” released in 2019 — as well as a spin off “Lightyear” in 2022.

Pixar is a subsidiary of Disney, according to the company’s official website.
The first collaboration between Disney and Pixar was in 1986 when the companies began to work on “CAPS, the Computer Animation Production System, which would revolutionize the creation of traditional animated films.” 
Years later, in 1991, Pixar and Disney agreed “to make and distribute at least one computer-generated animated movie.” This movie would be “Toy Story” in 1995, which grossed $192 million domestically and $362 million worldwide.
By 1997, Walt Disney Studios and Pixar continued their relationship further with the announcement of joint production of five movies over 10 years. 
In 2006, the Walt Disney Company purchased Pixar, making the animation studios a subsidiary of Disney.
