The reason that Pixar is the best at computer animated films is because they spend time and money on a script. Others have come close (the Shrek films) but none has surpassed Pixar’s record of stories and characters we care about. 9 has neither.
A post-apocalyptic tale with hand-made cloth beings, each with a kind of mission, that come together to fight a kind of malignant intelligence which can create war machines as it needs to. Naturally, the little critters manage to join to do battle with evil. And that points to the purpose of the tale.
