John Lasseter and his gang of high-tech creators at Pixar create another entertainment for the ages. Like the few great movie sequels, Toy Story 2 comments on why the first one was so wonderful while finding a fresh angle worthy of a new film. The craze of toy collecting becomes the focus here, as we find out Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is not only a beloved toy to Andy but also a rare doll from a popular '60s children's show. When a greedy collector takes Woody, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) launches a rescue mission with Andy's other toys. To say more would be a crime because this is one of the most creative and smile-inducing films since, well, the first Toy Story.
Although the toys look the same as in the 1994 feature, Pixar shows how much technology has advanced: the human characters look more human, backgrounds are superior, and two action sequences that book-end the film are dazzling. And it's a hoot for kids and adults. The film is packed with spoofs, easily accessible in-jokes, and inspired voice casting (with newcomer Joan Cusack especially a delight as Cowgirl Jessie). But as the Pixar canon of films illustrates, the filmmakers are storytellers first. Woody's heart-tugging predicament can easily be translated into the eternal debate of living a good life versus living forever. Toy Story 2 also achieved something in the U.S. two other outstanding 1999 animated features (The Iron Giant, Princess Mononoke) could not: it became a huge box-office hit. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.See all Product Description

In the meantime Andy's toys launch a daring rescue. They run into Barbie (Tour Guide Barbie). Of course Barbie is portrayed as a complete Airhead. The Round-uP gang convince Woody to join them. Andy is getting older and will out grow his toys. Jessie sings a beautiful song "When she loved me" about her child Emily. Emily outgrew Jessie and ended up giving her to charity. Of course Buzz and the Gang reach Woody.
Woody realizes he cannot stop Andy from growing up and he would not miss it for the world. The prospector tries to stop them. Eventually Woody goes back to Andy with Jessie and Bullseye.
This is a great story about loyalty and frienship. Most children animation shows are very violent. Toy Story 2, as well as the first movie, gives a possitive message to children and are a refreshing change of pace. Toy Story 2 shows that a Child is a toys entire universe and that they are crushed deaply when they are abandon. There are some children that do have an enotional attachment to their toys and do keep them into their adulthood. Some even pass their toys onto thier children. Toy story is a movie that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. The animation was fantastic. I like that "tongue in cheek" reference to Star Wars when Buzz confronted Emperor Zurge.

Will there be a Toy Story 3?
This is a touching story, with some great twists. The animation is flawless as usual and the enjoyment level, and humor are at any all time high.
This movie is outstanding, and even better than the original! The darkness that shaded the original (Sid) is missing in this one, and the minor sadness is quickly replaced with adventure and hilarity. As an added bonus, the VHS includes the original Pixar cartoon Luxo Jr. and a set of outtakes (both originally seen in the theatre version), plus a video of the Riders in the Sky singing the Woody's Round-up Medley.
The movie is entertaining and lighthearted, the soundtrack is entertaining, and the action is spellbinding. This is a great movie for all ages. I can't recommend it enough.
I love the way the toys all try to take care of each other and stick together. There are so many funny things in this movie. Adults might be the only ones to catch onto some of the jokes. I sometimes wonder if these movies are made for adults or children. Perhaps it is the child in all of us that loves animation. You will think of toys differently or perhaps remember how you thought of them as a child.
In the second movie, Cowboy Woody is all ready to go off to Cowboy camp when his arm is torn and he is left on the shelf. Soon thereafter he "hilariously" (carried by the very adorable dog) ends up in the yard sale where a toy collector discovers him. Soon some of the toys decide to rescue him. Through some great detective work they figure out where Woody is. The problem is that Woody feels sorry for Jessie who is scared to go back into the box until another Woody can be found. The Cowboy toys are all in a set, which is about to be shipped off to Japan. Without Woody, the set is not complete.
As a fan of Tom Hanks, I love that he is the voice for Cowboy Woody. The Cowgirl Jessie is just so animated...to put it mildly. She is very enthusiastic! All the voice casting is perfect. Buzz Lightyear is of course the tough guy who is going to save the world. Mr. Potato Head is so cute. All the toys are animated to their full potential. I thought the horse was absolutely the best toy and really took on a personality. It reminded me more of a dog than a horse.
Simply amazing computer animation and a must see!
