Description

All three instalments of the Pixar/Disney CGI-animated adventure franchise following the adventures of a band of toys who come to life as soon as their owner Andy (John Morris) leaves the room. In 'Toy Story' (1995), pull-string cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is Andy's favourite toy - until Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) arrives. The two have an ongoing feud, but are forced to team up when they find themselves stranded in the real world. Through their attempts to return to Andy's room they forge a unique friendship. The sequel, 'Toy Story 2' (1999) sees pull-string cowboy Woody (Hanks) kidnapped by toy collector Al (Wayne Knight), who plans to sell him to a Japanese toy museum. Assisted by Mr Potato Head, Slinky Dog and Rex the Dinosaur, action figure Buzz Lightyear (Allen) sets off to the rescue, but when they get to Al's store Buzz is mistakenly boxed up and his place taken by a new, flashier Lightyear model - complete with utility belt. The thrid installment, 'Toy Story 3' (2010), was filmed for theatrical release using Disney Digital 3D. When their owner, Andy (Morris), clears out his bedroom in preparation for starting college, Woody (Hanks), Buzz (Allen) and the rest of the toy-box gang are dumped in the donations box at a local nursery school and find themselves at the mercy of a horde of wild, sticky-fingered toddlers. As they struggle to stay together while coping with the chaos, the gang meet a new bunch of toys led by pink teddy bear Lotso (Ned Beatty), while Barbie (Jodie Benson) is at last united with her male counterpart, Ken (Michael Keaton). The yearning to return home cannot be ignored, however, and many comical adventures ensue as the toys make a series of elaborate escape attempts.
