Interpretation And Analysis Of 1995 Movie Toy Story

Pixar’s 1995 Toy Story movie stunned many. This was not a theatrical release. Although it looked as if the action was live, it was actually recorded on multiple computers. They looked incredible. These toys looked more like real cartoon characters than what you would find in a child’s messy room. They were more alive than any of the real-life characters.

One rule for animated feature films is that the original film must be greater than its sequel. The title will have a lower quality if it has a higher roman or arabic number. There were sequels to Snow White. Aladdin, The Jungle Book and Aladdin had quality that was significantly worse than the original. It’s a universal pattern that runs through movies, and it can also be applied to live-action movies. The rule of thumb is that a good original equals a poor sequel and a great one equals merely an average sequel. Toy Story 2 is a break from the norm. Ah, Pixar and Disney! The original film was set in Andy’s bedroom, but the sequel takes place on the streets and even at a toy shop. The gang, including Jim Varney’s Slinky Dog, are back from the second film. What’s their plot? Woody (Tom Hanks), gets snatched from Andy’s front lawn (he wasn’t supposed to sell, don’t be alarmed!) Woody (Tom Hansks) is taken from Andy’s front yard by Wayne Knight, who wants to profit from Woody’s collector value. Buzz Lightyear’s toys are the ones to rescue Woody. Woody isn’t interested in being rescued. We meet three new characters: the dolls that were part of a set called “Collectibles” from an old TV show. This is kind of Howdy Doody meets Howdy Doody. Only everyone was a marionette. The toys were completed by Woody and will now be sold to an Japanese museum. Woody and his new friends will be moving to Japan, but Buzz and Andy will stay behind.

This movie presents some amazing, thought-provoking material. Woody’s adventures will entertain kids, but they’ll also learn from the lessons he’s teaching them. Woody’s moral dilemma is whether he should go or stay. However, he (or the screenwriters) doesn’t choose to do so diplomatically. Buzz is also a much more mature person than his old pal. He has his OWN problem to solve. These toys’ flaws are real and we can see them. These toys are seen by children, and they become part of their world. We don’t have just super-heroes who save the day. Toys that look just like children are available, and the script is quite impressive. It’s funny and racially funny, but it also has references that are only for adults. It’s crisp and tasty – this isn’t a plot you can copy.
