The Toys are Back in Town


Pixar/Disney’s Toy Story turns 10 this fall, with a two-disc 10th Anniversary Edition DVD set to arrive in stores September 6.

A bonus featurette, “The Legacy of Toy Story,” includes interviews with celebrated filmmakers on the importance of the film, credited with launching the trend away from traditional hand-drawn animation.

Both the movie’s picture and sound quality have been bumped up, says USA Today. Advanced video technology provides a higher digital “bit rate,” and the sound has been enhanced by Lucasfilm’s Gary Rydstrom, winner of seven Academy Awards and a member of the Toy Story production team.

Other special features on the $30 DVD include a new “making of” documentary, 10 deleted scenes, early animation tests and a new music video of Lyle Lovett and Randy Newman singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”.
