Set in a world where toys come to life when people aren’t around, two rival toys—Woody, a pull-string cowboy sheriff, and Buzz Lightyear, an ace space ranger—must put aside their differences when they get separated from their owner, Andy, and find themselves on an adventure-filled mission where the only way they can survive is to form an uneasy alliance. “Toy Story” was the first feature-length film to be entirely computer animated, the first feature from Pixar Animation Studios and the highest grossing film of 1995. The film was nominated for three Oscars and received a Special Achievement Academy Award.”
