Toy Story, the best childhood movie ever, introduced us to a world of living toys that only desire to be loved and played with by their owners. And Toy Story 3 becoming the highest grossing animated film of all time and the first to exceed one billion U.S. dollars. The film just shows how brilliant Pixar. But the perfect cap to the last fifteen years doesn’t mean an end. Uxivata give a vintage taste with the Space Ranger flying, ehm, I mean, falling with style, to infinity… and beyond!
It started in 1988, John Lasseter – co-founder of Pixar and former Walt Disney animator – and Pixar wrote, produced and directed a short film called Tin Toy.
This was the fourth Pixar film to be made using only computer animation and it won the 1988 Academy Award for Animated Short Film. In the 90s, Disney approached John Lasseter to create a sequel to Tin Toy, a Christmas special. Pixar, thinking 6 minutes wasn’t enough, asked Disney if they could make it 30 minutes. When President of Walt Disney Studios Peter Schneider heard about this, he suggested they make it full-length instead. Many of the employees at Pixar were surprised. And kids, that was the story how Toy Story was made.
