We ranked the 7 Pixar sequels from worst to best

7 of 8

Toy Story 2

Toy Story is a perfect example of a film franchise that just keeps getting better and better, and hopefully that rings true when Toy Story 4 hits theatres in 2019.

In 1995, Toy Story was a groundbreaking achievement in computer animation and the first film released by Pixar Animation Studios. In this 1999 sequel, Andy has grown up a bit, and is off to summer camp. While he’s gone, his mother throws a garage sale and Woody gets kidnapped by an obsessive toy collector. Woody didn’t realize he was a valuable collectible — until he sees all the memorabilia the collector has in his apartment. He also gets to meet other toys from the TV series he was featured in back in the day.

Woody’s toy friends from Andy’s room — Buzz, Mr. Potato Head, Slinky, and the rest of the gang we all fell in love with in the first movie — immediately formulate a plan to rescue Woody and bring him back home. But they realize it might be harder than they though. Woody’s new toy friends try to convince him to go with them so they can finally be taken out of storage as a complete set.

Toy Story may be the most beloved Pixar franchise, thanks to the amazing cast of voice actors and the riveting storyline. The sequels also kept a great pace with their storyline, adding timely experiences audiences who grew up with the franchise could appreciate. As Andy has grown, we the audience have too, and remember all too well both the excitement and fear of approaching adulthood.

Plus, it has a rare 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, so take that, Cars 2!
