He was one of several CalArts graduates hired by John Kricfalusi to work on Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures at Ralph Bakshi's studio.

In an interview with World Magazine's Megan Basham, Stanton explained his singular vision for WALL-E: "What really interested me was the idea of the most human thing in the universe being a machine because it has more interest in finding out what the point of living is than actual people. The greatest commandment Christ gives us is to love, but that's not always our priority. So I came Up with this premise that could demonstrate what I was trying to say—that irrational love defeats the world's programming. You've got these two robots that are trying to go above their basest directives, literally their programming, to experience love." In addition to his direction and writing work for Pixar, he has also done some voice work, most notably as Evil Emperor Zurg in Toy Story 2 (1999) and Crush in Finding Nemo and Finding Dory.

Stanton made his live-action directing debut with Disney's John Carter. The film is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel, A Princess of Mars.

Stanton is Vice-president of Creativity at Pixar.

On February 10, 2017, it was revealed by Entertainment Weekly that Stanton was going to direct two episodes of the second season of Stranger Things.
