Story Synopsis:
The sequel to Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios groundbreaking hit is Toy Story 2. All the favorites are back with some terrific new toys. This time, Woody (Hanks)-now a valuable collector

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a beautiful digital-to-digital transfer, with superb image quality in all aspects. Like the original Toy Story, colors are rich and vibrant with excellent balance. Images are sharp and finely detailed into "backgrounds." The amount of detail seen in this movie is absolutely breathtaking and revealing of how much care went into its creation. Contrast and "shadow delineation" are superb, with excellent visual information in the darker scenes. There are no distractions, though, for the record, one instance revealed a slight shimmer in the picture. The visuals are absolutely stunning.
