Did you know that Toy Story was the first fully computer animated film ever to be produced? The film was released in 1995 featuring the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen. It's an amusing film suitable for all ages that tells the story of a group of toys that come alive when there are no humans around.
Toy story was the highest earning film of 2005 beating Batman Forever and Apollo 13. The film has gone on to become one of the best selling films of all time. The sequel to the original film was even more successful than the first. Toy Story 2 was released in 1999 with some new characters to add to the film.
Due to the success of the first 2 films , we now have Toy Story 3 scheduled for release on 23 July 2010. Toy Story 3 will be a 3D film and has been showing teaser trailers since May 2009. Toy Story 3 is set to be another fantastic hit with even more new characters being introduced into the story line.
Great for kids
Toy Story is great for kids and just as funny for the grownups to watch too! Toy Story really lets your children's imagination run wild with the possibilities that their toys could be plotting mischievous activities whilst they're out of the room and not looking!
It's also a really easy watching film that suits all ages. The films are cleverly created to include suitable jokes for all kids (and enough for the adults too!). The story lines are also really easy to follow so even the younger kids in your family won't get distracted and wonder away from the films plot!
Toy Story is one of the very few films whereby the story line is enjoyable by any kids no-matter what their interests are. Some kid's films are focused on just boys or just girls, or on certain types of children. Toy Story is a very universal film with a wide captive audience.
