Director John Lasseter, Pixar’s Chief Creative Officer, has stated that many of their films begin with the writers asking themselves, “what if . . . ?”
In this instance, the question was one that it’s easy to imagine every child asking – what if your toys came to life after you left the room? From this musing came the wonderful Toy Story, in which a group of toys led by cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) must adjust to the favour shown by six-year-old Andy to a new addition, the heroic if slightly deluded astronaut, Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Tim Allen).
Please note there is a supplementary ticket charge of €1 on 3D screenings.
