Anyway, Recently, I re-watched this fabulous little series of films and thought to myself "You know, a discussion about this would make for a good article." So here we are. Let's dive right in with Toy Story 1.
A warning though for all 4 of your reading this that haven't seen all of these yet: I'm so spoiling certain plot points so yeah....you've been warned.
There is one other thing I noticed while watching this trilogy. The whole thing runs on nostalgia. Toy Story uses general childhood nostalgia that most anyone can connect with. TS2 uses nostalgia for 40's and 50's toys. Toy Story 3 uses nostalgia for the first two movies, The films use this nostalgia to fuel stories full of great characters, touching moments, and a depth that I'd love to see more of in both family films and western animation. It's a grand trilogy of films that no one should live without seeing.
