Toy Story 2 was released on November 24, 1999 and is the second film of Toy Story series. In this sequel directed by Lee Unkrich there are 20 minutes more longer than its predecessor that focused in Woody’s origin right after Bonnie’s kidnapping.

In general, it has all main characters including Buzz Lightyear Bean Bunny Barbie Sky Lander Trixie Teeny Twins who does not appear until 40 minute into the movie which shows in a flashback after she was kidnapped. Lotso boasts that Bonnie is about to be auctioned off at the flea market but sees Sid twoup reject it because he does not have enough money for the cashier and Sid’s boss Mr Hui claims him mission stealing Ms Davis children, who happens to be Andy aged 9 years old since Woody becomes a new toy by capturing all of his toys – with Bonnie as their hostage before escaping from Al McWh iggin gang with Jessie, Buzz and the other toys who were committed by Bo peep who has no memory of any event allowing Al to assume his favorite toy is dead.

The story ends when they realize that she can’t speak due to losing the power cell upon running away on Buzz’s shockwave. Mrs Davis looking at both Sparky and Miss Kitty states “not even one”. This is a reference for Toy Story 2 where it says: No.

Villain characters

All of the villain’s in this movie are great villain characters. The villain itself is superb and it has so many elements, which makes it a brilliant film. It can be compared to Marvel movies as they have mastermind villains who do things that are spectacular and show off their abilities more than just having them run around being a normal threat when danger strikes, but otherwise still playing out like all other types of movies with good action scenes etc. where he doesn’t seem superhuman or super dangerous even though he is.

I found the characters to be very well thought out as a whole and also individually in their roles of what they were meant to play, nothing quite felt badly done that would ruin their personalities or any plans they seemed prepared on doing anything interesting with, I love this aspect when it comes down to various films and villains within them. As mentioned previously there are so many little moments all throughout which made me laugh such as Lotso showing his narciss.

Toy Story 2 Reviews

Paul Thomsen, the main protagonist and hero is definitely one of my faves along with Andy throughout both Toy Story 2 & 3. I really dislike anything bad to happen in any film but this movie has made me utterly flash back to terribly sad moments at times where Paul played his parts greatly!

  • Great script
  • -plot , gameplay, graphics and animation (I like toys original voices in this part much better) -drawing, artwork by ralphbakshi
  • -A lot of variants (more than Aladdin)
  • Toy Videos: 10/10 – Plot: Animation and great new twist on the story with lots of moral lessons to be learned form this movie. – Graphics 8/10

A small side note but I have always thought that when you look at most films out there in details their stories are pretty simple and often involve the main protagonist being a hero in some form or degree (althought there are many who won’t agree on this opinion).

This movie gives us an interesting look at one of those heroes, however he isn’t got to his position via any supernatural abilities from watching others’ fight for him but by really just going out there doing things himself with no help. As a spin on that thought James Bond is always successfully fighting evil villains. This is a list of things that I did not like about the movie but still liked the overall plot and characters.

What people Like about it

The toys lacked real personality/history due to it only being showing as words on a white board cutting away from their bigger personalities. It lacks depth for example my personal favourite character will always be BRIAN’S mom although she did have an interesting back story in comparison to all of these new people. Despite some large roles the toys remained the same and their personalities didn’t grew throughout this whole film like in its predecessor.

What people Do not Like about it

One of my biggest thing was lack of a good animation for foxy, I liked his character/storyline but he lacked deeper meaning as his former owner which made a rather irritating noise every time is brought up or some interaction occurred with him making it almost seem unnatural even badmouthful towards Bonnie despite me liking him.

As well most other characters had Wrap-up with all of my thoughts, I felt the characters were deep and it did make you think about morals (except for Fuzzy) but there wasn’t a lot done to them which annoyed me. It didn’t really explained why or how BRIAN’S mom came into his life blah blah blah.. The plot is interesting on many levels as well as that massive suspenseful middle/end battle was intense at times.

Final Thought

As a whole thing I still like this movie it just lacks the feeling of good plot and character buildup that comes with Toy Story 2. The toys lacked in different animations especially as seen with Bonnie’s eyes also seemed dull compared to his first appearance which was more animated but ultimately what I mean by this is there wasn’t enough work done on other characters most notably pixies, juliet being plain or even bunny head having very few voice clips.

All the voices were well done but I did like BRIAN and juliet’s best job is through out so they really get to show off when on screen a lot more then Woody, Buzz or Mr sun.. But ect… Overall this has one of my favourite main character’s in Toy Story 2/Buzz Lightyear it was just an improvement over his first movie appearance while still keeping on with a certain nostalgic feel towards.


1.Which One Is Better: Toy Story 2 or Toy Story 3?

Ans: Toy Story 2 and Toy story 3 are released around the same time but if looking back on it obviously toys from both movies return mainly from stages of growing up. While in Toyard some of the characters not being alive is a comparison to when Andy returns during Finding Nemo which involves him still missing his parents after he’s separated by age 5.

2.How Does the Plot of This Movie Relate to the Pixar Story Line in General?

Ans: Toy Story is a good fit for Pixar in general because its about toys falling out of their place in people’s lives, not typical movies but it does to an extent (if you’ve seen the rest toy story films featured in other sites.

3.Why Do People Like It So Much?

Ans: Toy Story was loved by an ample amount of viewers because it shows how a child views the world and a child’s innocence.

4.Did Toy Story 2 Almost Get Deleted?

Ans: No to shut up ppl who complain, when the Pixar team made toy story they decided that if there was going to be a sequel it wouldn’t come out until Toy Story 3. Who is the overall best character of all toys returns in Toy Story 2? If looking by first appearances it would have to be Buzz. Even when they get together throughout toy story 2, he gets along with Woody most which indicates a potential friendship between them in toys 3 and vice versa nowadays.

5.Why Is Bo Peep Not in Toy Story 2?

Ans: Toy Story 2 is seen by more adults as opposed to baby Bo Peep but overall the movie remains sentimental and enjoyable so who really cares? It’s about a boy, how does that relate to toys of today since kids where 8 years old when it came out? 2016: There are smaller blasters/telescopic rifles with scopes compared to back in 1993. Also clothes were different from what they used then too.
