Thankfully it has now been given the recognition it deserves as British adults have voted it the greatest kids film ever.
Admittedly some of those adults might have, like myself, been children when first watching Toy Story and may have made the decision based on fond memories but even so nine in 10 of the adults surveyed admit they still love watching kid’s movies even now they’re all grown up.
The nationwide poll of 1,500 Brits was conducted by researchers from Vue cinemas and revealed one in four adults go to the cinema to watch new children’s releases whether they have a youngster with them or not.
Toy Story was released in 1995 and made history for being the first feature-length film to be entirely computer-animated. 34 per cent of adults said they still love to watch it today, making it the most popular choice. However, the film was closely followed by Christmas classic Home Alone with 33 per cent, while The Lion King, Shrek and Harry Potter came third, fourth and fifth consecutively. 95 per cent of those surveyed claimed films bring generations together and 92 percent said it is a good thing for everyone to embrace their inner child on occasion.
Toy Story fans will no doubt be looking forward to the release of the fourth instalment later this month and Johnny Carr, Event Cinema Manager at Vue UK and Ireland, said the new movie will be one of many film lovers can look forward to this summer.
