Pixar began to be popular with Toy Story, in 1995 , but the study went through very hard economic situations. There were not a few times that they were on the verge of bankruptcy. In addition, to get to where they are now, they were battling for more than 10 years with Disney , which provided the money and kept the rights to merchandising , promotion and distribution of their characters.
However, it was Disney itself that prevented Pixar from closing, something that would have undoubtedly been a tragedy for the world of cinema. In 2005, Disney changed its CEO and Rober Iger wanted to solve the conflict that his predecessor would have generated. They ended up buying the company in 2006 , and from then on, Pixar became the studio we know today, with quality productions like The Incredibles, Inside Out , Finding Nemo and Wall-E .
