Pixar Movies As Infographics

Monsters University, which comes out today, is a prequel to Monsters, Inc. that looks back at where our scary friends got their start. So Vulture decided to also look back, at the Pixar franchises that came before it. And because everyone loves math and graphs, they decided to do so via infographics. They examine the difference between a bug’s life and A Bug’s Life, how Brave’s Princess Merida resembled Game of Thrones’ Stark kids, what Wall-E was really about, the breakdown of ingredients in Ratatouille’s ratatouille, and more.
