"The Rare Sequel That Lives Up to Its Predecessor!"
A Golden Globe Award winner for Best Picture, Toy Story 2 has become a favorite all across the world, garnering praise from fans and critics everywhere. It's "an instant classic," raves New York Magazine. Now, in a 2-disc collector's edition with sparkling new picture and spectacular home theater mix, this groundbreaking animated adventure is even better!
While Andy is away at summer camp, Woody is toynapped by Al, a greedy collector who needs Andy's favorite toy to complete his Roundup Gang collection. Together with Jessie, Bullseye, and the Prospector, Woody is on his way to a museum where he'll spend the rest of his life behind glass. It's up to Buzz, Mr. Potato Head, Hamm, Rex and Slinky Dog to rescue their friend and remind him what being a toy is all about.
Bursting with exclusive bonus features, including deleted scenes, outtakes, a new game and much more, this hilarious comedy classic raises the bar on family entertainment to infinity and beyond.
Solid film but not great. Being a sequel, it really doesn't bring anything to the table in terms of originality and its new characters, though likable, are nothing special. Noteworthy in that the quality of the animation continued to improve but overall this is Pixar's weakest movie.
Rated G (MPAA)
