As much as we’re excited about this week’s featured movies, Toy Story 1, 2 and 3, we’re also aware that Animania is almost over. We really don’t want the fun to stop, but even good things must come to an end, so make the most of it by heading to Dubsmash and finding clips from any of the Toy Story movies. Give us your take on Woody, Buzz and friends and you could be a winner with takealot.com.
The trilogy's title may have been straightforward, but no one was prepared for the magic that was to follow in the heartwarming tale of friendship that started in 1995.
In 1999, Toy Story 2 became that rare gem in Hollywood – a sequel that was not only as good as its predecessor but, to many minds, even better. Reuniting with Buzz and Woody, it continued their story and progressed their friendship, garnering a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical.
Not one to be left behind, Toy Story 3 – released 15 years after the first instalment – blew everyone away by matching the former two in quality, style and heart. The movie went on to win Best Animated Film at the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards.
Toy Story, as the first feature film for CGI and the first theatrical release for Pixar, set the bar high in terms of technical style and innovation. But although these movies will always be hailed for breaking new ground in animation, it’s the heart and magic of its story that will remain with all who watch it.
So go on! Relive the magic: head to Dubsmash to pay tribute to these amazing movies with your videos, and binge-watch the trilogy on Sunday 27 December from 12:20 on M-Net Movies Family.
