The Toy Story movies have been very good. But it’s Pixar’s five short films in the series—many of which have never been seen by the main trilogy’s adult fans—where some of the real magic lies.
Paladin Danse, you seem familiar. The gruff voice, the commitment to duty, the giant sci-fi armour...where have I seen you before? Oh, right.
There was an awesome Toy Story short released last year, about the gang’s encounter with the complete set of a very 80s toy line: The Battlesaurs. Those dinosaur warriors had an excellent theme song. Now they have an excellent fake intro, for the cartoon tie-in show they never actually had.
In 1995, Pixar released Toy Story, and it couldn’t have dropped at a better time.
Animation studio Pixar has, since 1995, released a total of 16 feature films. Some have been excellent. Others have not.
If you're a Pixar fan, you've probably heard about the Pizza Planet truck easter egg, which famously appears in many of the films they make. Here is every single instance that the truck has appeared in a Pixar movie, chronicled in four minutes.
After finishing the first Toy Story, I wouldn't blame anyone for having zero sympathy for Sid Phillips, Andy's mean next-door neighbor. Sid tortures his toys and makes them into things resembling abominations, for crying out loud.But what if we got this character all wrong?
Toy Story is a great movie. But like any great movie about toys that magically come to life when people aren't around to see them, some things about it just don't stand up to scrutiny. Be warned: you're about to have your childhood ruined.
There is nothing quite as deadly as a jealous children's toy. That's the idea behind Bobby Burns' Toy Story horror movie trailer, a concept that has me eyeing my collection warily.
Before Pixar's 1995 classic won over the hearts of children and the grownups they dragged to the theater with them, protagonist Woody was a very different character.
While many Pixar films are beloved box office hits, they often don't start out that way. In fact, if you ask Ed Catmull—the president of Disney and Pixar's animation studios—he'd be the first to tell you that Pixar movies "suck"—at least early on.
Forget the unified Pixar theory. Or rather, let's get more granular than the unified Pixar theory. Have you ever given much thought as to who Andy's mom is in the movie Toy Story?
Maybe you've watched Pixar's Toy Story before. Have you ever watched it reenacted by kittens, though?
The toys in Toy Story never wanted to get replaced—but, that reality becomes an inevitability as Andy grew older. Likewise, given how often Apple releases new products, it's kind of inevitable for many of us to consider an upgrade...much to the dismay of these electronics animated by Funny or Die.
Disney Infinity comes out a week from today with a host of characters from your favorite Disney franchises. Today at the D23 Fan Expo, eleven new characters and a new Toy Story in Space playset were announced. Look at all of familiar faces, hanging out together. That's pretty awesome.
You didn't think it could happen. Not again, you said. Well, yes, it's happening. Again.
Dan LuVisi - who we only just featured on our daily concept art showcase - is to thank for this "realistic" portrayal of Buzz Lightyear, which puts Star Command in the hands of the US government and turns the cartoon hero into someone you could easily imagine kicking ass in a 2013 video game.
Imangi Studios' Temple Run: Oz launched on iTunes yesterday morning. Today it's at the number one position on the paid charts, and Mila Kunis isn't even in it. The mind boggles.
