Overview

Disney's Toy Story and Toy Story 2 DVD set presents both films with impressive 1.77:1 widescreen anamorphic transfers. Both display wonderful lush colors and clearly showcase Pixar's inventive computer animation. The Toy Story 2 disc also offers the option of choosing a 1.33:1 full-frame version of the film. While this variation looks decent, it falls short of its widescreen counterpart. Both movies also contain THX-certified 5.1-channel Dolby Digital audio tracks that bring the music and sounds to life in a powerful manner. While neither one is groundbreaking, they both provide clear sounds and fail to distract in any way. The highlight of the extra features is a collection of creative "outtakes" from the production of Toy Story 2. They show the animated figures missing lines, acting clumsy, and playing practical jokes on each other, which leads to plenty of silliness. This disc also contains Luxo Jr., an Academy award-nominated short film that goes back to 1986. This extremely brief feature showcases the lamps that play prominently in the Pixar logo. There are also six Disney previews here, including trailers for The Emperor's New Groove, Fantasia 2000, and Monsters, Inc. The Toy Story DVD includes Tin Toy, a clever animated short that has a baby chasing around a tiny toy soldier. This is the only supplement on this disc.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Realizing that two Toy Stories are better than one, Disney is pairing two eagerly awaited DVD releases -- Toy Story and Toy Story 2. This set features the two computer-animated movies on separate DVDs with a few extras. Each disc includes one of director John Lasseter's earlier short animated features, the 1989 Oscar-winner Tin Toy and 1987 Oscar nominee Luxo, Jr.. Toy Story is presented in the full-frame format while Toy Story 2 lets viewers choose between full-frame and wide-screen presentations. For the true Toy Story fanatic, Disney is also offering the Ultimate Box Set, which presents both movies in wide-screen and with THX-certified sound. It also has a third DVD that's got more playthings than an aisle at Toys "R" Us. In addition to audio commentaries by the filmmakers, the three discs include "The Making of Toy Story," outtakes and deleted animation, interviews, and scads of information on how Pixar and Disney managed all that eye-popping and, in the case of Toy Story, special-Oscar winning movie magic.
