  • About the Film

    A rat named Remy

    dreams of becoming a great chef despite his family's wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Remy's passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the world of Paris upside down.

  • The Story

    A rat in a Paris kitchen offered

    an unexpected fish-out-of-water premise. “How do you make a rat really a rat…but at the same time make him appealing enough so that you’re not nauseated at the thought of him cooking?” asked John Lasseter. “How can you make the humble hero of your movie visually engaging enough to compete with the legendary beauty of Paris?” The answer was to make Ratatouille the story of an artist.

  • The Characters

    "Remy’s dilemma is basically

    the same as any artist’s. In many countries, certainly this one, art is considered extra, something you do after real work is over. The idea of doing it for a living is widely considered impractical at best. But for our rat Remy, art—experiencing it, trying to create it—is one of the biggest reasons there is to get up in the morning." said writer/director Brad Bird.

  • The World

    From rats in sewers

    to fine dining in the world’s most romantic city, Ratatouille would be a study in extremes. While the story would involve the natural—if unlikely—contrast between Remy’s rodent upbringing and his sophisticated human desires, it also added the challenge of animating food. The food not only had to appear real and edible, it had to be worthy of characters who look at what they eat with passionate reverence.

  • Hand-Drawn Animation

    Having broken new

    ground with their elaborate CG renderings, the Pixar team decided to give Ratatouille an old-school finish. For the end titles, as well as a DVD short, they enlisted hand-drawn animation, filling the halls of Pixar with the unfamiliar sound of rustling paper. According to the animators, the hands-on process was “like going back to your hometown.”
