Ratatouille Synopsis

Academy Award®-winning director Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) and the amazing storytellers at Pixar Animation Studios (“Cars,” “Finding Nemo”) take you into an entirely new and original world where the unthinkable combination of a rat and a 5-star gourmet restaurant come together for the ultimate fish-out-of-water tale.

In the hilarious new animated-adventure, RATATOUILLE, 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 city of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unwanted visitor in the kitchen at one of Paris’ most exclusive restaurants, Remy forms an unlikely partnership with Linguini, the garbage boy, who inadvertently discovers Remy’s amazing talents. They strike a deal, ultimately setting into motion a hilarious and exciting chain of extraordinary events that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.

Remy finds himself torn between following his dreams or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef.



Ratatouille, for those keeping score, is the movie Incredibles and Iron Giant mastermind Brad Bird jumped on board in mid-stream to get back on track and properly tweak out. Anything Brad Bird is involved in is worth your attention, superheroes, rats, talking tennis balls. Brad's your man.

If Pixar can make a movie about a bunch of lame looking cars fantastic, they should have no problem getting something great out of a script about a bunch of rats living in a restaurant. Rats and mice have been an animation staple since the artform’s earliest days. Heck, Disney’s own logo is a mouse cartoon character. For once, Pixar has an easy sell on their hands. They don’t to convince people to see a movie about talking toys. No gross bugs to promote. No goofy looking cars to push. Just old-fashioned animated rats. Tom and Jerry on croissants. The French bastard child of Mickey Mouse. Audiences, who are already trained to show up to anything that has the Pixar logo on it, should eat Ratatouille up.

Could Pixar's Brad Bird Direct Mission: Impossible 4? Could Pixar's Brad Bird Direct Mission: Impossible 4?
Picking a favorite Pixar film is like picking a favorite child, but it's indisputable that Bird's films have been among the best, and his sense of action and teamwork in The Incredibles would likely lend itself
