Toy Story fans can attend the marathon in select cities around the country.
AMC Theatres and Disney are kicking off the third Toy Story sequel with a special eight-hour marathon. On Thursday, June 20, 2019, visitors to select theaters can watch all four Toy Story movies, starting with the original and ending with the newest film, Toy Story 4. Attendees of the movie marathon will also get a free gift and can take advantage of special refreshment packages.
The first Toy Story movie debuted in 1995 and was Pixar’s first completely computer-animated film. It followed a group of children’s toys navigating life when the children weren’t around. The film had two sequels: Toy Story 2 launched in 1999, and Toy Story 3 in 2010. Toy Story 3 won three Oscars for “Best Animated Feature Film” and “Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures,” as well as Golden Globe BAFTA awards.
Most Toy Story fans thought the story had ended when Andy went off to college, but where there’s a will, there’s a sequel. Toy Story 4 follows Woody and the other toys to a new home with Bonnie, a child from Sunnyside Daycare. The toys embark on new adventures in Bonnie’s room with help from a new toy called “Forky.” Actors Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and Joan Cusack return to reprise their roles, joined by new addition Tony Hale.
The Toy Story Marathon will take place in California, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, Illinois, Missouri, New York, and Virginia on June 20, 2019. Attendees will get a special limited-edition Woody pin and can purchase a special snack pack including popcorn and an ICEE for $5. Tickets will be available online or in theaters.
