Toy Story Opens 16 Years Ago Today

When Toy Storywas released sixteen years ago, it was the world’s first full-length computer-animated film and took computer-generated animation to a new technological and artistic level. Featuring a pull-string cowboy named Woody, a space ranger action figure named Buzz Lightyear, and a host of out-of-the-toy-box characters, it was the highest-grossing movie of 1995 and went on to earn two Golden Globe nominations and three Academy Award nominations. In 2008, Toy Story was included on the American Film Institute’s list of 100 Greatest American Movies.
