Keanu Reeves became the latest Hollywood star to enter the Pixar universe in 2019 when he voiced Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4. However, the long-awaited sequel wasn’t the first time his character had appeared on the big screen. Here’s a look at the daredevil’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in a previous animated adventure.
Pixar Studios instantly revolutionized the world of feature-length animation in 1995 with its debut cinematic outing, Toy Story. Directed by John Lasseter, the tale of anthropomorphic toys was the first time that audiences had been given the chance to see a completely computer-animated movie on the big screen. And they sure lapped it up.
Indeed, Toy Story grossed a whopping $373 million across the globe to become one of the biggest box office hits of the year. Critics were also enamored with its groundbreaking animation, hilarious script and pitch-perfect voice performances. It later picked up three Oscar nods – for Best Original Score, Best Original Song and Best Original Screenplay.
