In 1995, "Toy Story" made its debut as the first fully computer-animated feature film. Its novel look and its compelling story garnered it more than $192 million in the U.S. alone and placed it at #50 on the all-time box office ranking. That success in turn inspired 1999's "Toy Story 2," which went on to earn $246 million and place at #25 on the all-time box office ranking. "Toy Story 3" arrived in 2010, and it has grossed more than the first two movies combined. All told, the three films have generated nearly $2 billion. The series presents the stories of Andy's toys who come alive when humans are not around. The toys, classics and familiar to movie audiences confront events and changes that they find quite disruptive and that movie goers easily relate to such as neighbors who break and torture toys, toys treated as collectibles instead of playthings, and what becomes of toys that kids outgrow.
