Family film all about toys at Murphy Library this Thursday, January 2

Posted on: December 30, 2013

The Murphy Library is starting the new year off with a movie that answers that age-old question: what are toys doing when no one is watching, especially when one of them is a cowboy who feels he’s not the favorite anymore. It is Toy Story, of course, and will be shown Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. and is rated G. Running time is 81 minutes and voices come from Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and Don Rickles, among others.

In 1986 Steve Jobs purchased George Lucas’ growing computer graphics company and renamed it Pixar. They soon joined with Disney Studios to make something brand new — a computer-generated animated movie. Toy Story was the result. It became the highest grossing film in 1995.

The reason for its success is an old-fashioned one about for teamwork. The writing team locked themselves in a room and let their own creative minds run wild. Their next successes included Up, Monsters, Inc, Wall-E, and Finding Nemo. Call 837-2417 for details.
