Shrek (2001): The debutants Andrew Adamson and Vicky Jenson directed this fantasy-comedy animated film.

The Incredibles (2004): From creating CG animation of the humans to making their actions look real on the screen, this movie is one of the finest creations in the field of animation. The director, Brad Bird along with other animators and VFX artists, with the help of “subsurface scattering” while creating the skin of the animated humans, gave a new technology in the field of animation.
Cars (2006): It took years for this adventure-comedy to make it to the big screen. The director John Lasseter with the animation team had worked day and night while creating different types of cars with different specifications. The animators also focused on the action, speed and in order to show their emotions, they added the eyes, ears, hands to them.

For example, young cars had a tighter body and smooth actions when compared with the older ones which had a loose body due to the age.
Kung Fu Panda (2008): The animators of this movie had hand drawn the character on the paper and then developed them on the computer screen.
