I know that featurettes are generally just a promo tool and that they likely have the spontaneity and genuineness of a carefully written PR spiel announcing that someone is going into rehab.

However, there is something rather quite delightful about the reactions of cast and crew in this featurette which suggests that everyone was very much in heart-on-sleeve mode.

How could you not be?

The Toy Story quadrilogy is one of those standout series of animated films has heart and soul in plastic bucket-sized amounts – okay, more, considerably more – brilliantly memorable characters, sparklingly daffy humour and a simply but emotionally powerful story that grabs your heart, soul and mind, refusing to let go.

If you go a chance to contribute to that legacy, how could you not be “OMG” excited? The cast and crew are and it makes me want to see this origin story all the more, thank you.

Lightyear releases 16 June in Australia and 17 June in USA and UK.
