    OK, I couldn't remember for sure.
    Oh yeah, I know Speak and Spell is real, I remember playing with them as a kid in the '90s.

    True, on the other hand, it could have served as a reason for Mattel to reintroduce them to a new generation, with or without the license ;)

    True, but it's now back. And I don't know who to blame. ;)

    ^ Well, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery ;)

    Yeah, but the person who said it first is really annoyed that nobody gives them credit for it... :D

    Hah, fair point! One of those quotes that are never attributed to anyone in particular.

    It’s a bit more noble. I like.

    To Christopher:

    If Pixar does exist in the Toy Story universe, I’d say their first film was….Zelig.

    “Ooh…uncanny valley…why can’t the people look real—like from The Polar Express?”

    Besides, it has to have some Woody…

    Saw that yesterday, and it's nice to get a clearer look at the story. Since they first announced the movie I've been curious if Zurg was in it, and this trailer finally gives us our first look at him.

    New trailer:



    There's an interview on io9 where the director explains just what this movie is all about:

    https://gizmodo.com/lightyear-disney-pixar-interview-trailer-chris-evans-1848799721

    That makes sense. I'd wondered why the Buzz toy would look so cartoonish if he was based on a live-action movie, but if he's based on the cartoon based on the movie, that explains it.

    The director says he envisioned this as a movie made in the '70s or '80s, but the "effects" sequences in the trailer look a lot more elaborate than what the pre-CGI visual effects of the era could've achieved. But maybe VFX were more advanced in the Toy Story universe. Do you suppose that maybe, being CGI themselves, they had an intuitive grasp of how to create CGI? Whoa. Mind blown.

    I thought she was a kid. That would be rather creepy for a Disney movie if she had a relationship with Buzz.

    No she's an adult.
