Toy Story – 25 years old

Toy Story – the famous movie franchise – has celebrated its 25th birthday.

The film reaches its 25th anniversary today. The first film came out in the US on 22 November 1995 and in NZ in March 1996.

In total there have been 4 Toy Story films.

  • Toy Story (1995),
  • Toy Story 2 (1999),
  • Toy Story 3 (2010), and
  • Toy Story 4 (2019).

This means that, for many of you, your parents might have even watched the film when they were your age, or maybe even younger than you are now!

Toy Story 1 made history by becoming the first feature-length film to be made entirely using computer-generated imagery.

The film also made more than $300 million at the box office. At the time this was a huge success. It led to three more films being made over the next 20 years.

Toy Story 3 became the highest-grossing animation ever when it was released in 2010.

To celebrate the film’s special birthday Disney and Pixar released some never before seen sketches of Buzz Lightyear’s original designs earlier this year, so we can see how the has character evolved.
