“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 a sparkling 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.”

Toy Story 2 is rated G.

Just like with Toy Story, Disney has reissued Toy Story 2 with a remastered soundtrack and enhanced picture. Unless you’re a real home theater buff, you probably won’t notice the difference. Still, it’s fun to see this classic film reissued with additional bonus features. Toy Story 2 was originally supposed to be one of Disney’s lame “straight to video sequels,” but late in the game everyone involved realized they had something special and it was reworked into a theatrical release. The final result is one of those rare sequels that equals or surpasses its predecessor. They even managed to introduce a few new characters
