Guide Review - Toy Story Special Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack
Ever since the film was released in 1995, Buzz and Woody have been favorites with kids, and the Toy Story Blu-ray capitalizes on Buzz's outer space origins to teach kids a little bit about the space program in "Buzz Lightyear Mission Logs: Blast Off." Fans will also learn a little bit about the filmmakers and get a glimpse into what it was like making the movie with features like "Studio Stories" and "The Path to Pixar."
The bonus features are fun and interesting for fans, but they could be downright inspiring for any kids who are interested in the filmmaking industry. From funny stories about things that happened during the making of Toy Story to an audio commentary that reveals many insights into what the filmmakers were thinking when they made the movie and the reasons for decisions they made give viewers a really open look at the making of the movie and what the experience of making Toy Story was like. Viewers can even see the first run of a scene from the movie that an embarrassed John Lasseter explains was terrible but important to show because of the history and the part it played in the process.
