Toy Story 4 Honest Trailer

Pretty much everyone agrees that Toy Story 4 was completely unnecessary. Even though the movie was surprising in the emotional reaction it garnered from audiences, it wasn’t a story that needed to be told, even with the introduction of memorable characters like the paranoid and self-deprecating Forky and the new misunderstood nightmare that is Gabby Gabby joining Woody in delivering an existential crisis for the whole family.

But the Toy Story 4 Honest Trailer also hones in one of the more disappointing aspects of the movie: the colorful ensemble cast that was so key to Toy Story adventures before now has nothing more to do than constantly beckon after Woody and Buzz.

(Infinity and Beyond is a regular bi-weekly column documenting the 25-year filmography of Pixar Animation Studios, film by film. In today’s column, writer Josh Spiegel highlights Toy Story 2.)

The 1990s were a decade of change for the Walt Disney Company. Executive shakeups, outside acquisitions, and more made the company much more massive by the close of the 1990s than they were at the start. In 1990, Pixar Animation Studios was able to see its computer technology on display for a brief minute or two in the hand-drawn animated film The Rescuers Down Under. By 1999, Pixar had proven that it just might be the powerful new kid in town in the animation industry.

And it was all thanks to a sequel that nearly got trapped on the small screen.

Two brothers, Morgan & Mason McGrew, have been working on a remake of the Pixar Animation movie for eight years, meticulously recreating scene-after-scene using both live-action and stop-motion animation with action figures, all shot on iPhones.
