“To infinity… and beyond!” The enormous ambition of Toy Story is matched only by its success: Pixar’s first feature film, and the first feature ever created solely with computer-generated imagery (CGI), Toy Story proved so resoundingly popular that it inspired two sequels, two live stage adaptations, six theme park attractions, and an international devotion to Pixar’s emotionally honest, exuberantly animated work. The story takes place in a world where toys come to life when nobody’s looking, in the bedroom of a young boy named Andy. At the centre is Woody, a pull-string cowboy doll who had always been Andy’s favourite, and Buzz Lightyear, a brand new space action figure who threatens to take his place. Woody’s jealousy and fear of obsolescence are met with confusion, as Buzz is convinced he’s a man on an intergalactic mission, not a toy! Through Pizza Planet and the next-door-neighbour kid’s creepy bedroom, Woody, Buzz, and the whole toy gang (featuring such stars as Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, and Hamm the Piggy Bank), discover what it means to be friends. “Children will enjoy a new take on the irresistible idea of toys coming to life. Adults will marvel at a witty script and utterly brilliant anthropomorphism” (Janet Maslin, New York Times). Colour, Blu-Ray Disc. 81 mins.
