Toy Story 10th Anniversary Edition.

DVD Release Date: 6 September 2005

Pulling this classic treasure out of the toy box for it’s 10th anniversary, Disney/Pixar presents the beloved classic as a 2 disc set. The original film has been spit and polished, with a high bit-rate transfer and a newly re-mastered Dolby 5.1 EX audio track mix (done by seven-time Academy Award winner Gary Rydstrom).

The DVDs are also decked out with an assortment of bonus features. The Legacy of Toy Story interviews actors (Tim Allen and Tom Hanks), industry professionals (like George Lucas and Peter Jackson), film historians and other celebrities about the impact of this first feature-length, computer animated film. (My favorite was astronaut Buzz Aldrin with his Buzz Lightyear doll.) The Making of Toy Story gives the movie’s creators a chance to discuss their roles, while Filmmakers Reflect presents an introspective interview with Pixar’s creative geniuses. (This is particularly poignant in view of the death of Joe Ranft on Aug. 16, 2005).

Amongst the wealth of other tidbits are deleted scenes (most in the storyboarding stage), short clips starring the Toy Story cast, a game called The Claw, and a sneak peek at Cars, the studio’s next highly anticipated animation. Parents should note some of the interviews contain mild profanities, and parts of the scrapped footage are a bit scarier than the sequences that made it into the finished product.

Enhanced for 16x9 Televisions, Toy Story: 10th Anniversary Edition also offers English French and Spanish language tracks.
