The first entirely computer-animated feature film, as well as the first feature film from Pixar, Toy Story became an instant classic when it came out back in 1995.

Ever wondered what toys do when people aren’t around?

The hit film answers that question with a fantastic fun-filled journey, viewed mostly through the eyes of two rival toys – Woody, the lanky, likable cowboy, and Buzz Lightyear, the fearless space ranger.

Led by Woody, Andy’s toys live happily in his room until Andy’s birthday brings Buzz Lightyear onto the scene.

Afraid of losing his place in Andy’s heart, Woody plots against Buzz.

But when circumstances separate Buzz and Woody from their owner, the comically-mismatched duo eventually learn to put aside their differences, and they find themselves on a hilarious adventure-filled mission where the only way they can survive is to form an uneasy alliance.

The Toy Story films are beloved worldwide for their compelling characters, extraordinary storytelling, stunning visuals and, of course, the music of Randy Newman.

The composer and songwriter is behind much-loved songs including You’ve Got a Friend in Me, Strange Things and I Will Go Sailing No More.

Now, Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story will be presented live in concert for the first time in the UK in 2022 with a nationwide tour.

And it’s coming to Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall.
