With four films in the franchise, Sheriff Woody experiences a lot of change over the years. The story begins with Woody’s jealousy toward Buzz Lightyear once he realizes his owner, Andy, enjoys playing with Buzz more. No longer the favorite toy, Woody makes it his mission to become Andy’s favorite toy again. While Woody can be bossy and determined, he is a likable character with a passion for keeping all of his friends together, even through difficult times. Throughout the Toy Story franchise, Woody sees a new owner in Bonnie, saying goodbye to Andy, and eventually realizes his real purpose in life.
Introduced in Toy Story 2, Jessie is a toy featured on the fictional television series “Woody’s Roundup.” This show is the same series that features Sherrif Woody. Exposing Woody to his roots, Jessie joins the team of toys after spending years in storage. The isolation has caused her to have a fear of the dark as well as a fear of abandonment. Despite her experience, Jessie remains outgoing and free-spirited. She balances out Woody’s orderly and calm demeanor. Jessie is spunky, rambunctious, and always up for an adventure! Though Jessie still struggles with a fear of abandonment, she eventually gains confidence and begins to enjoy life as one of Bonnie’s toys.
Toy Story became the first computer-animated feature film produced by Pixar and released by Walt Disney. The film follows the life of Woody, a jealous toy who realizes that his owner, Andy, has a new favorite toy—Buzz Lightyear. While falling out of windows, traveling to Pizza Planet, and getting “toy-napped” by Andy’s evil neighbor, Andy and Buzz eventually become best friends. Throughout the Toy Story franchise, new characters and toys join the fun, and Andy’s toy box! These new toys include Jessie, who struggles to trust people after being abandoned by her original owner.
Now with four films that make up the franchise, Woody, Jessie, and Buzz change owners to Bonnie once Andy leaves for college. They meet many new friends, including “lost toys” like Bo Peep and Duke Caboom, who live the life of freedom without an owner. Each toy, just as real people, go through their ups and downs. The toys need to be wanted by their owners, eventually realizing that their true purpose creates a new path for themselves.
