Pixar's First Movie Andre & Wally B : I Love Sharing Videos Personal Stories & Experiences. Read and Share True Stories, Learn and Support. Many people think Luxo Jr. is the first Pixar animated film (see below), but it's technically the Adventures of Andre and Wally B, produced while the soon-to-be Pixar crew was still at Lucas studios. Watch this and ask yourself--can you believe this was made in 1984!?! Then read on for the back story and video comparisons to the modern day Pixar. The Adventures of Andr and Wally B. is an animated short made in 1984 by the Lucasfilm Computer Graphics Project, which would later be spun out as a startup company called Pixar.
