Pixar films tend to focus on unique situations and the latest Pixar movie is about a pair of sea monsters who masquerade as humans so they can explore life on land. One of the characters they run into is a cat named Machiavelli, who senses their true nature and eyes them suspiciously.
If you watch the two latest Pixar films, “Luca” and “Soul,” you’ll notice that they both include a cat. In “Soul,” the hero is trapped in the body of a cat while in “Luca,” the cat is a secondary character. Still, the fact that cats play a prominent part in both movies shows that Pixar understands the appeal of cats in storytelling.
