Experience a hilarious fantasy about the lives toys lead when they're left alone. Woody (Tom Hanks), an old-fashioned cowboy doll, is Andy's favorite. But when Andy gets Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) for his birthday, the flashy new space hero takes Andy's room by storm! Their rivalry leaves them lost with a toy's worst nightmare -- Sid, the toy-torturing boy next door. Woody and Buzz must work together to escape, realizing along the way that they've got a friend ... in each other! Now, in a magnificent special edition, TOY STORY shines even brighter. With an all-new enhanced picture and a spectacular home theater mix as well as exclusive bonus features, including deleted scenes and a retrospective special with director John Lasseter, this modern classic is one you'll enjoy to infinity and beyond.
There is greatness in film that can be discussed, dissected, and talked about late into the night. Then there is genius that is right in front of our faces--we smile at the spell it puts us into and are refreshed, and nary a word needs to be spoken. This kind of entertainment is what they used to call "movie magic," and there is loads of it in this irresistible computer animation feature. Just a picture of these bright toys reawaken the kid in us. Filmmaker John Lasseter thinks of himself as a storyteller first and an animator second, much like another film innovator, Walt Disney.
The 10th anniversary edition of the landmark film repackages most of the extras found in the original Ultimate Toy Box set plus a few more. Two keen retrospectives are new, one with an assortment of talents including Roy Disney and Peter Jackson chiming in on the film's impact. The other is a roundtable with Lasseter and three of the creators simply talking about the experiences without--thankfully--any cutaways to noisy film clips. There's a load of other extras since the Ultimate Toy Box was one of the first and best DVD sets. Missing (besides the second film, which will be released separately) is the effects- and music-only tracks. Added is a whopping DTS soundtrack along with a remixed Dolby 5.1 track. The DVD has a higher transfer bit rate for a better picture, but only high-end enthusiasts will notice it. Since the film is a digital-to-digital transfer, both versions are eye-popping. A must-have set unless you have the Ultimate Toy Box.
Lasseter's story is universal and magical: what do toys do when they're not played with? Cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Andy's favorite bedroom toy, tries to calm the other toys (some original, some classic) during a wrenching time of year--the birthday party, when newer toys may replace them. Sure enough, Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) is the new toy that takes over the throne. Buzz has a crucial flaw, though--he believes he's the real Buzz Lightyear, not a toy. Lasseter further scores with perfect voice casting, including Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn as a meek dinosaur. The director-animator won a special Oscar for "the development and inspired application of techniques that have made possible the first feature-length computer-animated film." In other words, the movie is great. --Doug Thomas

Amazon Digital is wonderful--it's nice to have this movie there in my forever library so I can watch it whenever and wherever I wish. The process was simple--press buy and viola! It showed up in my library.
Be out in 2019 so I hesitate to change it.
I have now Seen this entire movie over and over. It is still funny. The DVD is worn out so I bought the download for my 3 year old nephew to watch. A classic. Great movie to watch with kids or grand kids.
The story of Woody and Buzz and the toys is so perfect and I love how there is enough of a story to keep adults entertained, especially when they are watching the same move for the 1,000th time. I love that this movie isn't marketed to just boys, but to everyone. My daughter is now 6 and while she doesn't ask to watch this every day now, she still does watch it on occasion. I love that she can now watch the story with a whole different level of understanding and how in 5 more years it will be the same and then again 5 years after that.
Such a wonderful movie!
Both films come with audio commentary, Acamdemy Award winning and nominated short films, French language tracks, and are THX certified. "Toy Story" also includes a multi language reel (where Buzz and Woody's first encounter with each other is shown in some of the many languages the film was translated in),a making of featurette, & on set interviews with Woody & Buzz. But the best thing on this disc is the 'Toy Story treats', which are about 51 short almost commercials that Pixar created for ABC's Saturday morning cartoons to help promote the movie. They're nothing more than ten second blips with all the characters from the first film, and this is the first place you can see them all together.Really cool!
The "TS2" disc includes the hilarious outtakes that were put in the film after its' initial release, and a rather dull and drawn out sneak preview of Pixar's next feature, "Monsters, Inc."
But the real reason to spend the extra bucks is for the third disc. Every aspect of both films is covered from pre-production to publicity. Extensive interviews with the directors of the films include conversations about why they chose to do a sequel, as well as discussing traditional elements of the film making process. The art department of both films discuss specific locations, and both have original song demos from Randy Newman. There's also a great bit where they show you all the inside jokes the animators put into the second film.Even the menu screens for each of the sections is painstakingly thought out.
In the liner notes John Lasseter,(The Director), says the set is "fun, it's entertaining, it's even scholarly. But most of all this DVD is a tribute to the geniuses I get to work with every day. Warm up your remotes, remember where your 'angle' button is-and get ready to ride!"
A collector's dream gift.
