Pixar Wiki

Welcome to the Pixar Wiki! We are excited you have chosen to help us grow and maintain this wiki. This page contains a list of the general rules and policies regarding the wiki that the Pixar Wiki staff expect our users to follow. Policies on specific topics can be found in the Policy category.

Below are the policies and guidelines for this wiki. It should be noted that as this site is very dynamic, rules have been added or changed over the years, so you will likely find inconsistencies between these policies and individual pages. It is recommended that before making changes to multiple pages to meet a policy below, you should first discuss it on the relevant talk page or ask an admin, so consensus can first be achieved.


  • This wiki is written factually and for official Pixar information only. As such, please do not put rumors, opinions, conjectures or assumptions of a subject into articles, or speculative information that cannot be properly backed by an official source. Fan theories and fan fiction are also not allowed in the mainspace. Note, other wikis and sites like IMDb are not considered official. This is especially critical for topics such as voice actors for characters. The primary source of voice actors will be the official press kit, which is not released until shortly before a film is released. Prior to the press kit being available, if you want to enter a voice actor credits you must provide an official source, such as:
    • A Disney or Pixar press release
    • An actors official website or social media post
In addition, many minor characters do not have their voice actor listed in the press kit. In other cases an actor is listed under the Additional Voices section, without stating which character(s) he or she voiced. In these cases, again it is required that an official source be provided.
Assumed information should not be added. For instance, it is well known that John Ratzenberger voices a character in almost every Pixar film. But it is a violation of this wiki's policy to add him to a voice cast until it has been officially confirmed by Pixar and a reference to such confirmation is included.
  • As a Pixar-focused wiki, character, cast and crew names should be as stated as found in the source material and official Pixar press kits. Character page names, introductory lines and character templates should also use the name as listed in the source material. For instance, in Toy Story 3, Bonnie is referred to as just Bonnie so that is how her page should be titled and how she is referred to in her character template and the introductory paragraph on her page. If other official sources refer to her as Bonnie Anderson (such as the Disney Pixar Character Encyclopedia), this can be noted in the Trivia section of her page with a reference to the source. In addition, Pete Docter's full first name may be Peter, but since he is consistently referred to as Pete in press kits and on the official Pixar website, this wiki will also refer to him as such.
  • Character pages should utilize the Character template. Here are some rules to keep in mind regarding the Character template.
    • Cameos or appearances in end credit sequences or bloopers should not be included in the Appear section of the template. Rather, such appearances can be listed in the character's Trivia section.
      • For clarification, a cameo is when a character appears in a production not in their franchise. I.e. Woody's appearance in any Toy Story film, short film or TV series would never be considered a cameo. If Woody were to show up in some other franchise, then that would be considered a cameo.
    • It should never be considered an appearance if a character is just shown in a static way, such as a photograph. Such an appearance should be listed in the character's trivia section.
    • The first and last section should only be populated if the character has more than 1 production in the Appear section.
    • Wiki links to production titles should only occur in the Appear section. Other sections, such as First or Last should only follow production title formatting (italics).
    • For productions that are a series of shorts or episodes (such as Toy Story Toons or Forky Asks a Question), only the name of the series should be included in the Appear section, not the individual shorts or episodes.
  • This wiki attempts to follow standard wiki behavior of only including a single wiki link to other pages. For instance, on a character page, there should only be a single wiki link to each production the character appears in, which most likely will be in the Appear section of the Character template. Any further references to that production should not be done as wiki links and only follow title formatting (italics).
  • Pages should use the most relevant and specific category or sub-category. If a sub-category is used on a page, a higher-level category should not also be included on the page. For instance, if a character page includes the Toy Story Character category, it should not also include the higher-level Character category.
    • Sorting for categories should be included, using either individual category sorting or a DEFAULTSORT.
    • Generic categories (i.e. animal, human, male, etc) are not allowed.
  • This wiki does not allow or support the use of labels such as antagonist and villain. Please review the antagonist policy on these topics.
  • This wiki is primarily for productions created directly by Pixar. Other non-Pixar created productions, whether video games, toys, films (Planes) or series (Monsters At Work), can be included here but should only utilize a single page. Episodes of the series or characters that only exist in that production should also be on that page and should not have their own page.
  • Fan-made material such as fan theories, fanart or fan fiction are not allowed in the mainspace. It is permitted in blog, user and discussion pages.
  • Trivia entries should not include things such as that a character resembles some other character, unless the filmmakers have explicitly stated that as a source of inspiration. In addition, opinions and conjectures should not be included. If something is unknown (such as the fate of a character, or why a character doesn't appear in some later work), then there is no reason to state it is unknown. Enumeration trivia should only include the first instance of the occurrence. More details on what is and is not allowed for enumeration trivia can be found on the Trivia Enumeration policy page.
  • Mainspace talk pages should be kept for discussion of the associated page. These discussions should be for official content only. They should not be used for expressing opinions on films or characters. These discussions can exist in blog, user and discussion pages.
  • Major edits should be discussed on the article's corresponding talk page prior to being published.
    • Related, be careful about making excessive amounts of edits within a short amount of time, such as adding categories to pages, moving or renaming pages. If you feel there is a large amount of changes required please check with an admin or discuss it on the Talk:Pixar Wiki first. This helps reduce the possibility of you making a lot of changes that then needs to be reverted. In addition, such behavior may cause you to be blocked. Instead, a better choice is to make edits to a few pages, then wait a day or two to see if the changes are reverted or modified. If not, then you can continue making your changes.
  • Spam of any sort is not allowed, which is the advertisement of your own websites, work, or anything else. Users may do this in moderation on their user pages as long as they are contributing to the wiki.
  • All minor edits should be marked as "Minor edit". Minor edits include events such as fixing typos, linking to an article, or changing a line of coding or text.
  • Proofread your work prior to publishing an edit; this includes checking text and pictures, as well as additional coding.
  • Please use proper grammar and spelling.
  • This wiki uses American English, therefore other English standards such as British English should not be used. Some examples include "color" over "colour", "favorite" over "favourite", etc.
  • Leave a signature when posting a new topic or reply on a talk page. Signatures can be inserted with --~~~~.
  • The use of alternate or multiple accounts is prohibited.
  • Usernames must be kept appropriate. In addition to a block here, your account will be reported to Fandom Central, potentially resulting in a global ban.
  • User pages should only be edited by either the corresponding user or an administrator, the latter of which should only take place if any present content goes against any of the rules listed on this page.
  • Instead of edit warring with another user, we ask that you attempt to work out the problem in a civilized manner on the article's talk page, or by having a discussion on the user's talk page. If the issue fails to be solved, an administrator should be contacted and they will join the search for a solution.
  • Do not engage at all with a vandal, as this often just encourages the behavior. Instead, revert any such vandalism if possible and notify an administrator and let him or her deal with the problem.
  • While you are allowed to leave messages reminding other users of policies, please do not abuse this power; only leave a warning or reminder to the user if they truly deserve it. This should be done on the user's talk page.
  • Removal of warnings from your talk page is forbidden.
  • If an administrator makes an edit, correction or removes a page, it should be left as is without first contacting the administrator on their talk page.
  • Claiming to be an administrator when, in reality, you are not, is strictly prohibited.
  • Making personal attacks (bullying or harassment) towards any other user is strictly prohibited. This includes verbally assaulting someone over their interests, sexuality, username, edits, etc.

Blocking Policy[]

This wiki attempts to use blocking as a last resort. Other procedures such as talk page conversations will be first utilized. There are cases where immediate blocks will be used. For instance, this wiki has zero tolerance for any form of vandalism or personal attack, such as:

  • Removing a large amount of content from pages, especially without providing an explanation in the Edit Summary
  • Large number of edits in a short period of time that violate wiki policies (i.e. adding non-supported categories to many pages)
  • Inserting gibberish or spam into pages
  • Inserting false information (i.e. stating an unannounced sequel will be released such as Toy Story 5 or Incredibles 3).
  • Adding pornographic, fanon or non-Pixar images
  • Adding pages or content for non-Pixar or fanon productions
  • Inappropriate or obscene usernames, or using multiple user names
  • Abusing multiple accounts (sockpuppeting)
  • Harassment or intimidating behavior

Any of the above actions could lead to blocking, up to and including a permanent block, with no warning. In other cases, an indefinite block may be used when a user is violating wiki policy or making many edits that will need to be reverted. In such cases, an administrator may use an indefinite block to stop the user. The administrator will leave a note on the user's talk page explaining the issue. Once the user responds (users can still write on their talk page when blocked) stating they understand the issue and will no longer demonstrate that behavior, the administrator will lift the block. Otherwise, the standard blocking policy is as follows:

  1. Blocking is only used when a user is violating wiki policy.
  2. The user will be given a warning via a message on their talk page. It is preferred that users respond in the positive to these messages so the administrators know the user has read and understood the policy.
  3. If the user continues with the same behavior, a 1 week to 1 month block will be issued. The length of block will be based on whether the user has responded to previous messages and the amount of work that will be required to revert the user's edits.
  4. If, after the first block is lifted the user continues with the same behavior, another block will be issued, up to a permanent block.
  5. In some cases, the block can be lifted if the user responds on their talk page or Community Central wiki. Whether the block is lifted early will be to the discretion of the administrators.

Please note that blocking is intended to be a preventive measure rather than a punishment.
