Review:

Where there’s a success there’s a sequel and “Toy Story 2” is one of those rare sequels that equals the original (and might possibly be better). “Toy Story 2” puts Buzz in the driver’s seat so-to-speak as he has to save Woody who has been stolen by an unscrupulous toy collector (Wayne Knight) that plans on selling Woody who, it turns out, is a vintage collectable. Woody (Tom Hanks) ends up joining this collection which includes Jessie the cowgirl (Joan Cusack) and Stinky Pete the Prospector (Kelsey Grammer). Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Rex the Dinosaur (Wallace Shawn), Slinky the Dog (Jim Varney) and Hamm (John Ratzenberger) all team up to find Woody before he’s shipped off. ***

With “Toy Story 2” Pixar truly defined the type of films they were making/going to make; family friendly films that also have drama, heart and emotional power. The second film in a long delayed trilogy (Disney had planned a “Toy Story 3” that was going to be very different from what we’ll see). ---

Image & Sound:

A stellar and brilliant looking transfer, “Toy Story 2” looks terrific. Colors pop and the rich detail from the original theatrical presentation of the film. Since the film was digitally created and is a direct digital transfer it’s no surprise this looks brilliant. ***

“Toy Story 2” sounds brilliant, too. With a lossless vibrant presentation the film has never sounded better.

Special Features:

We get a bunch of terrific extras scattered over the two disc set: Disc 1: Toy Story 3 sneak peek "the characters"; Buzz Lightyear mission logs: international space station; New! Pixar's Zoetrope;

Disc 2: A new Blu-ray feature film; New! Toy Story 3 sneak peek "the characters"; Buzz Lightyear mission logs: international space station; New! 3 animated studio stories; New! Pixar's zoetrope; Making: Toy Story 2; Toy box: outtakes & alternate scenes; Deleted scenes & design galleries.

Final Words:

A terrific movie and one of those rare films that surpasses the original, “Toy Story 2” provides a broader, richer story with just as much suspense and fun as the original film.
