Disney, Merchandise, Pixar, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, Toy Story 4

Posted by Nia • February 23, 2019

The Disney store and shopDisney have released new Toy Story Shufflerz collectibles. The limited edition toys feature your favorite characters from the beloved Toy Story films: Woody, Buzz, Rex, Bo Peep and Alien. On the 4th Saturday of each month Disney/Pixar will be celebrating a different Toy Story film in anticipation for Toy Story 4, which comes to cinemas June 21, 2019.

The Toy Story Shufflerz are compact, adorable, and filled with energy that will keep you and your loved ones entertained for days. Not only do they perfectly depict the iconic characters from the films, but when you press the top of the toys 10 times, they suddenly become alive as they aptly “shuffle” away from you.

Check out the toys below, and be sure to collect yours soon at a Disney Store near you or online at shopDisney.

Posted by Nia • October 27, 2017

Do you love Pixar? (Obviously) Do you love going to Disneyland and Disney World? (Duh!) Well, now’s the perfect opportunity to plan your next trip to California AND Florida because, drum roll, please…

  1. Pixar Fest is coming to Disneyland!
  2. Not only that, but a brand spanking new Pixar-themed area will be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios soon!

According to Oh My Disney, Pixar Fest will be coming to both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure beginning April 13th, 2018! That’s only five months away! Unfortunately the event will be for a limited time, but during April you will get to see both parks completely dedicated to the world of Pixar. The parks will include a new fireworks show, two new Pixar-themed parades, new merchandise, food and drinks, and more!

Thanks to Oh My Disney, here’s some of the cool things to look forward to at Pixar Fest:

“Together Forever—A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular”

The nighttime spectacular will feature a brand new fireworks display with Buzz Lightyear flying over Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. The main focus of the show, as the Together Forever title suggests, will be about the special bond between friends and celebrate the true meaning of friendship.

“Pixar Play Parade”

You guessed it, not only will Luxo the Lamp be in this Disneyland parade, but characters from films like Inside Out and Up will also make appearances.

“Paint the Night”

The Disney California Adventure parade will showcase characters from Monsters Inc., Toy Story, and Cars.

Pixar Shorts Film Festival

You can finally watch some of Pixar’s short films at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Disney California Adventure’s Hollywood Land.

Pixar Fest Charm Bracelet

Be sure to pick up one of the exclusive merchandise items that will be for sale, which includes Pixar-themed charm bracelets.

So 2018 is obviously going to be a great year for Pixar. Need any more proof? Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, Woody’s Lunch Box (an area that will be in the new Toy Story land section of the park) will be opening! Oh My Disney shared a first look of the area:

As the concept art depicts, Woody’s Lunch Box will feature a plethora of different toys from Andy’s collection, even showing off some of Andy’s lunch box items.

It will certainly be thrilling walking among some of the iconic Toy Story toys in Woody’s Lunch Box AND celebrating the studio with Pixar Fest – it’ll feel like we’re finally apart of the magic behind a Pixar film.

Apple Releasing Toy Story Watch Faces for Apple Watch

Toy Story, Toy Story 2

Posted by Phileas • June 5, 2017

At Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC 2017, Apple has announced that Woody, Jessie, and Buzz will be making an appearance on the Apple Watch as all-new, animated Toy Story watch faces.

The trio from the franchise has specially-created animation sequences specially created for the wearable’s operating system, with a different animation playing every time you raise the watch. In announcing to 5,000 developers in San Jose, Apple’s VP of Technology, Kevin Lynch, described the watch faces as “a ton of fun”, saying that the three characters will add “a lot of hijinks in there” to the popular smartwatch.

Apple has had a long-standing association with Pixar since the studio’s formation. Besides Steve Jobs being a pivotal & monumental part to the history of both companies, Pixar franchises frequently play cameos in Apple’s conferences and product announcements, extending back all the way to 2000 with Toy Story 2 and the introduction of Mac OS X.

The watch faces are part of watchOS 4, which will be released to all Apple Watch owners this summer; a public beta is expected to be released in a couple of months. Follow us on Twitter to be kept in the know when these insanely cool watch faces are available!

Happy 20th Anniversary, Toy Story!

Ed Catmull, John Lasseter, Lee Unkrich, Pixar, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 20th, Toy Story 3, Toy Story 4, Upcoming Pixar

Posted by Nia • November 22, 2015

In celebration of Toy Story‘s 20th anniversary, we asked our readers to tell us how important the film is to them. Here are some of the most touching responses that will make you want to re-watch the film and hold your childhood toys close. Please note: Submissions have been edited for length and/or clarity.

toy story 20th

“My daughter has always been a true and dedicated fan of Toy Story, and has also gone through several bouts of chemo with Woody and Buzz comforting her.”

My daughter was 4 years old when Toy Story came to be. She had already gone through surgeries, chemo, and was starting on radiation when she was mesmerized by Woody and Buzz. My daughter has always been a true and dedicated fan of Toy Story, and has also gone through several bouts of chemo with Woody and Buzz comforting her. She turned 24 last year. In fact, when we booked a Disney Cruise in September, I asked DCL if there was anything they can do for her. Low and behold, she was treated with a private session with her two favorite characters! I’ve never seen her smile that big. – Susan and Kayla Gordon

“Toy Story has always been my favorite childhood movie, and it eventually became the film that convinced me to be an animator.”

I could write a book about how Toy Story has impacted my life. I like to joke that the day the film was released in theaters was the best day of my life. Toy Story has always been my favorite childhood movie, and it eventually became the film that convinced me to be an animator. I have very fond memories of my Toy Story toys, from playing with little Buzz and Woody figures with my older sister, to my dad dressing up one of my other Buzzes in Barbie clothes to act out the Mrs. Nesbitt scene. I’m now in my second year of art school, and the more I learn about the history of animation, the more I see how Toy Story rocked the industry. It was a groundbreaking marriage of technology and art, and the foundation of many of the films we cherish today. The production of Toy Story itself is a story of having a dream and not giving up on it, no matter how much others try to convince you that it’ll fail. This is what inspires me to pursue my own dream of making films someday.  – Allie

“Every time I watch the original Toy Story it’s like visiting an old friend, and the movie brings me back to my childhood.”

I can’t remember a time where I didn’t treat my toys as if they were real (I was three years old when the original came out). I probably owned some small toys from the movie, but the one I interacted with the most was the computer game. Generally speaking, I loved playing all the storybook computer games from the ’90s Disney movies, and Toy Story was one of my top favorites.

 

The films itself hold a special place in my heart, and though I don’t remember the first time I saw the original and its sequel, they both came out around pivotal moments of my life. The first one came out two months before my first sister was born (the first time I’d become a sibling), and the second one came out seven months before my second sister was born. And the third one came out at exactly the right time: I had just graduated from high school the day before its release, and Andy saying goodbye to his toys sadly reminded me that I’d have to do the same in the next two months as I was moving to another state, away from the friends I grew up with.

 

Every time I watch the original Toy Story it’s like visiting an old friend, and the movie brings me back to my childhood. I may have outgrown playing with the toys I used to love, but the fond memories are still there. – Keisha

“Sharing Toy Story with my Dad is one of my best memories I have with him as a child.”

I was 8. I have a lot of clear and random memories regarding the film. I went to see it in the theater with my dad and I loved it, which was surprising because as a child I was deathly afraid of toys coming to life to the point that I had vivid and chronic nightmares. Toy Story was the movie that spun it all around for me, it made me stop fearing the idea and my nightmares literally stopped.

 

I love Woody more, but for some reason I really wanted a Buzz Lightyear so badly that my dad went to three or four Burger Kings to find one of the promotional plush toys they had. We couldn’t afford the actual replica toys that came out in the stores. I’ll always remember the night he brought it to me as a surprise. Buzz and I were inseparable for months after that. Sharing Toy Story with my Dad is one of my best memories I have with him as a child. – Atta Lynne

Toy Story played a very large part in my childhood.”

It was the film I watched repeatedly when I was young. Once Toy Story 2 came out, it had become my favorite movie. Toy Story 3 was probably the biggest event of 2010 for me and I also had quite a few toys at that point. With the 4th film coming and all the shorts, Toy Story will continue to remain a big part of a life for a long time. – JKOP

“May the toys continue to embrace more kids and adults for generations to come.”

I was just a baby when the first Toy Story came out. But, I loved it when I first saw it on home video and I still love it today. I have all the movies (and the TV specials on Blu-Ray and DVD), I still have a lot of the toys (the main ones like Woody and Buzz I haven’t stored away yet), and I just love this trilogy! May the toys continue to embrace more kids and adults for generations to come! To infinity and beyond! – Josiah Mielke

“My parents decided to try and spark some interests by putting on movies for me. I’d only watch one the entire way through: Toy Story.”

It all started when I was around 11 months old. I allegedly didn’t do much, I crawled around a bit, I slept, not much else. My parents decided to try and spark some interests by putting on movies for me. I’d only watch one the entire way through: Toy Story.

 

And so, that started a very long cycle of re-watches for years and years. Because of that, Toy Story had such a big influence on me. It’s what made me want to become an animator, made me want to work for Pixar, sparked my hobby in filmmaking, heck, it’s one of the main reasons I started talking.

 

In fact, anytime I go to the Disney parks, I always try to meet the Buzz Lightyear character. Unfortunately, DLP don’t really “get” the Toy Story hype, but luckily, I have met him twice; once in 2006 and once this year, in 2015. Even this year, the ride I went on most was Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast.

 

As I write this in bed, I have a giant TS3 poster looming above me, and the Toy Story characters from Disney Infinity close by. – Noah Carolan

“Toy Story and its characters are really my oldest and closest friends, and without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.”

What does Toy Story mean to me? Well, where do I even begin? For starters, it was the first movie I ever fell in love with. My Toy Story experience began early, like a lot of people my age. I was 13 months going on 14 months. When my dad came home with the VHS for Toy Story, I was hooked. I don’t remember this, but my mom has told me every time she popped the film in the VCR, she knew she had about an hour and a half of free time because I was just mesmerized.

 

Just a few weeks ago, I decided to sit down and re-watch the trilogy. I’d really forgotten just how amazing all of those films are. I still laughed at the jokes, even though I know them all by heart. I still cried at the end of Toy Story 3, even though I knew what was coming. I referred to the movie marathon as “catching up with old friends” on an Instagram post I made. Toy Story and its characters are really my oldest and closest friends, and without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. So, thank you to everyone who has ever worked on these films, for crafting something that people from 1 to 99 can watch and still laugh, cry, and connect with in a way not many other films can achieve. Thank you Toy Story. May you continue to inspire people for infinity and beyond. – Forster Keenoy

“20 years later, Buzz is still my favorite character and I’ve still got Disney magic in my heart.”

I’ve been a hardcore Pixar fangirl ever since I was little. I wasn’t like most Disney-loving girls my age (i.e. I favored Buzz Lightyear over Disney Princesses).

 

Every time I watched a Pixar movie I was enchanted. And all three times we went to Disney World, I went Pixar crazy. I loved riding Buzz’s Space Ranger Spin, playing Toy Story Mania, dancing in Block Party Bash, and meeting the Pixar Pals.

 

20 years later, Buzz is still my favorite character and I’ve still got Disney magic in my heart. All three Toy Story movies bring back lots of good memories. Thank you Disney and Pixar. To infinity and beyond! – Buzzfan120

Thank you to all of the storytellers at Pixar who have brought magic to our lives. Here’s to the future and the great stories to come.

With love,

Upcoming Pixar.

Now Available: Cars 2 on Blu-ray/DVD + Toy Story Trilogy!

Blu-Ray, Cars 2, DVD, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3

Posted by Martin • November 1, 2011

A truckload of Pixar releases hit stores today including a wide range of Cars 2 home video options and the Toy Story Trilogy bundle.

The standard Cars 2 Blu-ray and DVD "combo packs" are pretty bare bones when it comes to bonus features and other goodies, but the HD picture is as eye-popping as ever. Included on every release is an audio commentary with John Lasseter and Brad Lewis, Hawaiian Vacation, and the brand new "Cars Toons" short, Air Mater.

If you’ve seen the other "Mater’s Tall Tales" vignettes, the set-up for Air Mater will be pretty familiar. Re-imagining Mater as a plane was a clever touch that lends to the series’ tongue-in-cheek style of humor. It’s also fun to note that this is Pixar Canada’s first project. Look out for the nod to DisneyToon’s upcoming Planes at the end.

As with other Pixar releases, director John Lasseter and co-director Brad Lewis add rich perspective in the commentary while the film moves from one jaw-dropping locale to another, equally breathtaking setting. The 5-disc 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray + DVD "combo pack" includes a wealth of special features which unfortunately, we weren’t able to review.

The Toy Story Trilogy, bundled for the first time on 3D Blu-ray, also hits stores today. Standalone 3D releases of Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 will be available separately as well.

Have you had the chance to check out any of these releases?

Upcoming Pixar Reviews Toy Story and Toy Story 2 on Blu-ray!

Blu-Ray, Review, Toy Story, Toy Story 2

Posted by Martin • March 14, 2010

As Pixar fans, I assume you’re all well aware of the amazing narratives that drive Toy Story and its sequel. I’m also guessing you’re excited for the highly anticipated Blu-ray releases, if not, a little curious.

I won’t make this a film review, because the 1995 and 1999 releases speak for themselves in that sense. Instead, I will offer a generous sneak peek at the new special features found on both brand new Blu-ray/DVD combo packs so you won’t have a doubt in your mind about purchasing them on March 23!

But first I’ll briefly touch on the technical details. I’m no Blu-ray expert when it comes to specifications, but the widescreen 1080p picture and superb sound are like nothing I’ve seen or heard from movies originally released in the mid-to-late 90’s.

The uncompressed digital files go to infinity and beyond when it comes to all-around enjoyment (pun totally intended) and, dare I say it, are on par with Pixar’s latest releases! DVDBeaver has great original release to Blu-ray comparison up for both movies if you want in-depth details on those matters.

Enough with the tech talk. The brand new special features are what truly make these releases that much more exciting! The folks at Pixar were careful to include never-before-seen content that touches on the past, present, and future of the Toy Story franchise.

The first thing you’ll notice when you open the Bonus Features menu on each Blu-ray is a big Toy Story 3 logo. On the TS disc you’ll find "The Story" and on TS2 you’ll find "The Characters" both featuring Lee Unkrich; the latter has some big reveals. Each package also contains a Disney Movie Rewards offer which will get you a free Toy Story 3 movie ticket!

As cool as that is, my absolute favorite part of the Special Edition releases are the Studio Stories, hilariously narrated short animations which recount little known moments during the production of Toy Story and Toy Story 2. Each set has three vignettes included, making it a total of six Studio Stories. My favorite is no doubt, "The Movie Vanishes" from TS2 — you’ll all be shocked!

Now, this next feature is great for any aspiring Pixarian, especially those who want to be Artists or Technical Directors. The former is found on TS and the latter is in the sequel. Both clips feature artists who worked on those particular films, ready with advice and other interesting tidbits on how they ended up at the Lamp.

Each set also has two documentary shorts. You might be surprised to see who one of the conductors of the Buzz float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was (Hint: He loves toys and cars) when you play "Buzz Takes Manhattan" which is featured on the TS disc. You’ll also get to see the appalling draft of Toy Story back when Jeffrey Katzenberg decided the film needed to be more "edgy".

The docs only get better in the TS2 disc. If you loved the Joe Ranft tribute we recently posted, you’ll adore "Celebrating Our Friend Joe Ranft", complete with stories from the ones who knew him best. This short documentary is accompanied by "Pixar’s Zoetrope", profiling the animated sculptures based on the classic animation technique.

A fun little addition to the discs are Episodes I and II of Buzz Lightyear’s Mission Logs. Each features brand new animation and clips of "real" Buzz’s trip to the International Space Station courtesy of NASA.

Of course, all of the major special features from the 10th Anniversary and 2-Disc Special versions are also included under the Classic DVD Bonus Features tab. Speaking of DVDs, each Blu-ray package comes with the new Special Edition DVD which contains all of the new features in standard definition. This is especially fortunate for those who are planning on getting a Blu-ray player but do not have one at the moment or those who want to be able to watch the films anywhere.

"Toy Story" on Blu-ray and "Toy Story 2" on Blu-ray Special Edition Combo Packs ($29.99 each) land in stores on March 23rd, 2010. An alternate DVD packaging (with differing covers) will be released on May 18th of this year. We recommend pre-ordering from Amazon or Disney Store! Check out our older post for a brief list of new features.

Will you purchase Toy Story and/or Toy Story 2 on Blu-ray? Why or why not? Did this review help in that decision? Feel free to ask any questions about the releases which I didn’t address in the review.

Woody’s News Round-Up: Toy Story Tidbits Edition

Lee Unkrich, Round-Ups, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3

Posted by Martin • February 5, 2010

These past weeks have been filled with well deserved celebration for Up’s latest awards and nominations, but to change things up a bit I thought I’d give you all a few updates on Toy Story.

Excitement for Toy Story 3 is about to get even more wild as Lee Unkrich prepares to announce brand new characters next week. But one has to wonder, has the highly anticipated sequel overshadowed other happenings in the toy world? What has been going on in Andy’s room between TS3 announcements?  This special report will bring some lower profile ‘Toy’ stories to light.

Many of you are probably aware of Buzz Lightyear’s latest real life Space Ranger mission; the action-figure was recently blasted off to the International Space Station where he performed gravity experiments. Of course, every mission needs a patch so Disney and NASA partnered up for a contest to design one. An 11-year old from Tampa, FL was honored with the top prize — he’ll get to spend a few days at Kennedy Space Center/Walt Disney World and, best of all, the patch he designed (seen above) will be worn by actual astronauts! [via collectSPACE]

Also having to do with drawings of Buzz; for those of you who follow Toy Story comics, make sure to check out the latest installment. It’s #1… but not. See, writer Jesse Blaze Snider and BOOM! started the comic at #0, so 1 is actually 2 and so forth. Anyway, The story continues as Andy’s Buzz is replaced by a flashier version of the action figure, now Woody needs to get Buzz back before he’s returned to store shelves for good! I’m really digging this arc, if you have the chance definitely grab a copy. As always, the story doesn’t talk down to anyone and Pixar fans will enjoy an extra look at a universe that’s rarely explored beyond its three feature films.

Other than that, we have a lot more to look forward to in the next few months. Toy Story and Toy Story 2 premiere on Blu-ray on March 23rd and Lee Unkrich‘s announcements will continue getting juicier and juicier as the weeks progress.

What are you most looking forward to in the world of Toy Story?

Toy Story Blu-ray News Updates: Final Cover Art Revealed, Featurette Previews + Toy Story 3 on 3D Blu-ray!

Blu-Ray, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3

Posted by Martin • January 21, 2010

When we first got word of the upcoming Toy Story and Toy Story 2 Blu-ray releases, a bunch of exciting special features were announced. But when it comes to cover art, all we got is a minimalist treatment.

Shortly thereafter we were treated to a rough idea of what was to come in the form of preliminary box art featuring re-used character poses of Buzz, Woody and Jessie. Now, Disney Store has revealed the official (and presumably final) box art for the Blu-ray and DVD releases of both the original Toy Story and its sequel. Each Blu-ray looks sleek and very appealing; it’s almost as if the toy gang wasn’t satisfied with just the logo and decided to hop in!
Click above to see larger.

Over at Amazon, both movie’s pages contain short previews of the supplemental content that we’ll get to see on the discs. For Toy Story, the preview clips include a profile on rebuilding Pixar’s first film back when it was a struggling script and The Path to Pixar interviews. On the other hand, Toy Story 2’s pre-order page features a jaw-dropping demo of the Toy Story Zoetrope and a profile on scratch voices starring the late Joe Ranft. Check out the rest of the Blu-ray supplementary content over at our previous post.

Toy Story on Blu-ray and Toy Story 2 on Blu-ray Special Edition are packaged as a BRD + DVD combo pack including most (if not all) previous DVD content. Both releases fly into store shelves promptly on March 23rd, 2010 with their own unique Toy Story 3 preview.
 
Alternatively, you can buy the films packaged as a DVD + Blu-ray combo; confusing right. These versions of the films will be delayed until May 18th, 2010 according to Disney Store. Your best bet is to get the Blu-ray.

Toy Story 3 on 3D Blu-ray: This last headline apparently flew way under my radar. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Toy Story 3 would be one out of three preliminary titles to be released in 3D Blu-ray from Disney. Wow, that’s a lot of "3s"! A Christmas Carol and Alice in Wonderland are also listed for the format and are scheduled for release this year, believe it or not. 

Of course, these discs require a capable TV set which, according to the article, should start appearing in the market soon. This can be seen as good or bad news. The good, we can enjoy movies (like Up for those who missed it in theatres) time and time again with "real" depth. The bad, demand for 3D theatrical releases may plummet. Speaking of theatrical releases and Toy Story, the 3D UK premiere of ‘2’ is tomorrow.

What do you think about the brand new cover art? Did the featurette previews appeal to you? What is your opinion on Toy Story 3’s reported 3D home release?
