Pixar began their illustrious feature career with the beloved and imaginative Toy Story that brought to life a world of talking toys, into which no one had really ventured before.
Animation has always opened up the realm of possibilities for cinema but Pixar began a new revolution with genuine, personable storytelling with this delightful and ingenious film.
Toy Story isn’t one of those films that is dependent on nostalgia to be enjoyable or understood because it’s very much a timeless animation experience with humour, character, and tenderness to spare.
Not only will Toy Story be remembered for years to come as the catalyst for a new wave of imaginative animation movies but it will be known as one of the best complexly character-driven animated films ever made.
While its groundbreaking computer animation has since been predictably surpassed, its warmth and humour haven’t diminished one bit.
