Hello everyone and welcome to Muzik Speaks’ Disney Week!
‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’ was originally written and recorded by Randy Newman for Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story. Toy Story was released back in 1995; this year sees the 20th anniversary of the film! Can you believe it?!
Toy Story was the first feature length animation released by Pixar, generating $361 million worldwide, in its opening weekend. The film was so successful and plucked the heartstrings of so many, that they went on to release two sequels, and Pixar have gone on to create many other visual masterpieces since!
The film featured the voice talents of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen who played Woody and Buzz Lightyear, respectively. Toy Story also sent children and families into a frenzy, to own a Buzz Lightyear toy, in the Christmas of that year…the queues at toy shops worldwide, were incredible!
Do you still love Toy Story as much as you did, 20 years on? Did you have your own Buzz Lightyear toy? Did you get one that Christmas? Please share the link to this post and you never know…your toys might come to life if you do!
