Continuing my countdown of every Pixar movie…
#8. Toy Story 2 (1999)
(down three spots from previous ranking)
I remember when Toy Story 2 was announced and everybody’s first response was to question why this inventive new animation studio was going to the sequel well so soon.
Pixar quieted those concerns quickly, delivering its first masterpiece. The movie doubled down on the ingenious plotting and wry humor of the first film, and pushed the characters into new emotional territory.
