Boy, this movie makes me feel old!
Have you ever watched a movie when you were little only to grow up and watch the sequels later to realise that the movies are timed perfectly according to your life? If you were born in the 90s, you would understand where I am coming from when I say that about Toy Story. I remember first watching Toy Story when I was only four years old, then watching Toy Story 2 when I was fifteen and watching Andy, all grown up and heading off to college in Toy Story 3 when I was nineteen. Toy Story was a very big part of my childhood, my growing up so for this week’s #ThrowbackThursday, we are watching Toy Story!
Directed by John Lassester, Toy Story is a 1995 computer-animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios. Released by Walt Disney Pictures, Toy Story was the first feature-length computer animated film and was also the first film produced by Pixar. The film followed around a group of toys who pretended to be lifeless whenever humans are present, and fixated on the relationship between Woody, a pull-string cowboy doll and Buzz Lightyear, an astronaut action figure.
Starring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Wallace Shawn and Jim Varney, Toy Story was the top-grossing film of its opening weekend as it went on to earn over $361 million worldwide. Currently dubbed as one of the best animated films ever made, Toy Story was inducted into the National Film Registry for being culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant in 2005, its first year of eligibility.
Toy Story went on to have two sequels – Toy Story 2 in 1991 and Toy Story 3 in 2010.
Toy Story is perfect movie that will get any 90s kid reliving their childhood so I suggest you kick back on your couch tonight and re-watch this beautiful film.
