Honest Trailers: ‘Toy Story’

Honest Trailers Toy Story

Never before (and I’ve watched them all) has a Screen Junkies Honest Trailer ever made me think as much as their latest entry, Toy Story. Narrator Jon Bailey makes you feel old in a hurry, reminding the audience that Disney’s first foray into computer animation came out the same year as… Windows 95! Of course, if Toy Story came out today, it would look more like Wall-E, as every kid Andy’s age plays with high-priced tech toys like video games, and cell phone apps, and can play with all their friends while sitting all alone in their rooms. I know. I have an 11-year-old.

Watch the Honest Trailer below.

While the video runs through the list of Pixar films, it’s kinda crazy how amazing these movies are. They’re so good, it’s almost accepted that they WILL be good even before they come out now. Toy Story 3 was even nominated for Best Picture a few years ago, and was one of the better films of any style. This Honest Trailer goes all meta by making you ponder the existential questions Woody, Buzz, and the other characters go through. After rewatching it not too long ago with my 4-year-old daughter, Woody (voiced by the amazing Tom Hanks) does, in fact, come off neurotic and jealous. And he TOTALLY tries to KILL Buzz! I mean, it’s like premeditated attempted toy murder!

The Honest Trailer also does something I didn’t think possible. It makes you feel bad for Sid, the crazy boy neighbor who enjoys destroying and re-assembling toys into deformed ones, before blowing them up with fireworks. When you think about it… who cares? If you weren’t watching a movie about living toys, your 10-year old self would probably want to hang out with Sid. I mean c’mon, he had a cool dog, and blew stuff up with fireworks! Not to mention, the video makes you remember his dad was kind of a lazy drunk. Speaking of dads, where’s Andy’s? More things this Honest Trailer makes you strongly consider. Other questions it stirs up:

– Do toys die?
– Are toys born?
– If Buzz remembers outer space, how come Woody doesn’t remember the Wild West?
– Do sex toys count?

And the best part, playing the part of Randy Newman, guest star Will Sasso sings a ridiculous parody of “You’ve Got A Friend In Me,” that is as good or better than the Family Guy spoof from their first season… “left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot”¦”

Screen Junkies currently has over 4-million YouTube subscribers and releases a new Honest Trailer every Tuesday.
