Film Review: Toy Story
Directed by John Lasseter and the first feature film from Pixar, Toy Story follows a set of anthropomorphic toys which come to life when humans are not present. Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), is a traditional pull-string talking cowboy, who has long enjoyed a place of honour as the favourite of six-year-old Andy (John Morris). But Woody’s status as top toy is put in jeopardy upon the arrival of Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), the coolest space action figure ever made. As Woody plots to get rid of Buzz, things backfire as he soon finds himself lost in the outside world with Buzz as his only companion.
