Just in time for Christmas, we decided to get reacquainted with some old friends and revisit one of the most respected and critically acclaimed trilogies of all time: Pixar’s Toy Story series. In addition to discussing the three Toy Story feature films, we also thought we should bring the half-hour Halloween short, Toy Story of Terror, and the recent Christmas special, Toy Story That Time Forgot into the discussion as well. And to help sort through the technical details of our very first animated premium podcast, we recruited the Archbishop of Animation himself, Mr. Dax Gordine. So does the original Toy Story hold up visually or is it straight up offensive to thine eyes? What are the rules of the toy world and when are they allowed to be broken? Is John Lasseter a creative genius and, if so, does that excuse his terrible fashion sense? Reach for the sky and download this month’s premium podcast below.
