Toy Story 4 may not come out until 2017, but that didn’t stop Screen Junkies from giving the original Toy Story film the “honest trailer” treatment.
“Get ready for the classic children’s film,” the voice-over begins, “that’s all about jealousy, broken dreams, and the existential dread that you will one day outlive your purpose and be replaced by someone newer and better. You know, classic Pixar stuff!”
The trailer points out some stuff about the movie most of us have probably failed to acknowledge, like the fact that Woody is really “a neurotic, mean, egotistical control freak.” And how “when the much cooler toy Buzz Lightyear appears, he’ll attempt to murder him in a jealous rage.”
Plus, a few existential questions Toy Story brings up: “Can toys die? Are toys born? When do they become sentient? Can they have kids? Do all toys initially have the same mental and philosophical breakdown as Buzz? Does Andy’s mom realize it’s super illegal to have a baby ride in the front seat?”
