For those who somehow have managed to avoid its many charms, Toy Story is set in a universe where toys magically take on a life of their own when humans aren’t around. Voiced by Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, respectively, its two leading characters are old-school cowboy Woody and newfangled spaceman Buzz Lightyear. The former is initially threatened when the latter arrives on the scene, but the pair eventually become the best of friends.

The film’s phenomenal success inevitably inspired Pixar to return to the world of Woody and Buzz in 1999. But unlike most sequels, Toy Story 2 is widely regarded as superior to the original. This time around, Buzz Lightyear and co. come to the rescue when Woody finds himself in the clutches of a toy collector.

Toy Story 2 was originally supposed to bypass cinemas altogether and go straight-to-video. But Disney bosses were so impressed by the early story reels that they decided to give the toy characters a second big screen outing. Whereas the Pixar team typically take years to work on a project, Toy Story 2 was developed and completed in the space of just nine months.
