FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES -- In Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” the toys find themselves in the dusty shadows of Second Chance Antiques—a massive set that had to be stocked with thousands of objects, creating nooks and crannies that serve as the toys’ secret corridors. Featuring Annie Potts, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key as the voices of Bo Peep, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bunny and Ducky, “Toy Story 4” opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019. ©2019 Disney/Pixar.

3. Toy Story (1995)

Imagine opening a toy box for the very first time and finding it bursting with the most fascinating toys that could talk, walk, and feel their own little complicated emotions. This movie didn't just walk into the world of animation - it strutted in with a cowboy hat and a space helmet, revolutionizing the scene with its snazzy computer-generated imagery (CGI).

Before Woody and Buzz Lightyear made their grand entrance, most animated movies were like traditional paintings come to life. Then came Toy Story, flipping the script and showing us a world where toys had heart, humor, and a heck of a lot of adventures when humans weren't looking. It was like being let in on the coolest secret: toys might just have feelings, too!

But why, oh why, does it sit at third place in the grand ranking of the Toy Story saga? Well, it's kind of like being the first pancake on the griddle - sure, it's delicious, but the ones that follow just get better with each flip.

Toy Story set the stage with its lovable characters and touching story, inviting us to ponder the life and feelings of our childhood toys. But its sequels took that golden baton and sprinted towards new horizons, deepening the emotional depth and expanding the toy universe beyond our wildest dreams. So, while Toy Story may wear the silver medal in this toy Olympics, it's only because its successors stood on its sturdy, plastic shoulders to reach even greater heights.

And let's be real: without this pioneering first movie, Woody, Buzz, and the gang's most thrilling adventures would have never come to life (or that creepy-ass kid Sid and sick penchant for toy torture).
