As director of Toy Story 3, widely considered one of the best movies of 2010, Lee Unkrich has steadily risen through Pixar's ranks. He started as a film editor in the animation company's early days in the mid-1990s, beginning with Toy Story. That movie officially put Pixar on the map, and since then Unkrich has carried the series through two sequels. He's also worked on some of the most popular children's movies (that adults also love) in the past 15 years, including A Bug's Life; Monsters, Inc.; Cars; Finding Nemo; and Ratatouille.
