Trivia

Production of this film lead to a major disagreement between John Lasseter and Disney chairman Michael Eisner. At the time of production, Pixar Animation was in the midst of a 5-picture deal with Disney. Pixar Animation had initially contracted with Disney to produce and distribute five computer animated films, three of which had already seen release: Toy Story (1995), A Bug's Life (1998)& Monsters, Inc. (2001). Though this movie was produced while Pixar and Disney were operating under the same contract, it was counted as its own entity since the original agreement specified five original films, not sequels. Consequently, production on the final two movies of the initial deal, Finding Nemo (2003) and The Incredibles (2004) was delayed. When Disney, which owned all the characters, decided to move ahead with a low-budget direct-to-DVD sequel, Lasseter intervened, offering Pixar's services to produce the film. Lasseter assumed it would be counted as part of Pixar's 5-picture contract, but Eisner refused, forcing a tense renegotiation between the two studios. It also led to Pixar's refusal to renew it's distribution contract with Disney, though Disney eventually bought Pixar Studios and integrated its creative staff into studio management. When producers saw the first results of the considerably lower-budget direct-to-DVD production they were dissatisfied and gave the project back to the makers of the original for a cinematic release.

Funny, Exciting and Thoughtful: What more do you want?
6 December 1999 | by (College Station, TX) – See all my reviews

PIXAR has done the impossible, and significantly improved on their original groundbreaking film Toy Story. Not only is the movie hysterically funny, but every time I thought I knew where the plot was headed something completely new and original was thrown into the mix. One minute I'm laughing hysterically at "Tour Guide" Barbie, the next I'm nearly brought to tears watching a sequence where Emily grows up and leaves Jessie behind.

What more can be said? If you think you're too old to enjoy something like this then I feel sorry for you, because this film has more to say about friendship, loss, loyalty and the value of life itself than any of the so-called "grown up" movies I've seen this year.

I rarely do this, but I'm rating this one a "10".
