Pixar Tourney Round 3: Fortune Favors the Favorites

Incredibles Never look backWe’re down to our final eight Pixar characters! Round 2 cut the field in half, bringing us from 16 characters in 8 series to 8 characters from 5 series. Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone all lost, shutting The Incredibles out of the tournament despite a strong Round 1 showing. Ratatouille and WALL-E joined the fallen films as well with the losses of Remy and WALL-E.Ratatouille gif

Round 3 features only #1 and #2 seeds with the exception of #5 seed Dug from Up. Dug capitalized on Frozone’s earlier defeat of #1 seed Nemo and breezed into the Elite Eight. We’re left with Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, Sulley and Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc., Carl Fredericksen and Dug from Up, Joy from Inside Out, and Dory from Finding Nemo. The films with the best odds to win it all have to be Toy Story and Monsters Inc., both of which have a #1 and #2 seed.

Pixar’s newest film, Inside Out needs to win a tough matchup to advance as Joy faces Buzz Lightyear. Despite his lower seed, Buzz is the favorite in the matchup given his strong showings so far. Buzz’s counterpart has been blasting opponents so far and Woody looks to take out Mike Wazowski. Woody is without a doubt the favorite to win the title at this point.
