TOY STORY Actors Look So Young in This Behind the Scenes Video

TOY STORY Actors Look So Young in This Behind the Scenes Video

Toy Story really doesn’t feel like it came out that long ago. Sure, the entirety of Pixar‘s catalog has pretty much come since, but that’s rational thinking. The fact that there have only been three Toy Story movies means it can’t have been that long ago we saw the first one, right? Even though entire themed areas of amusement parks have had the time to be built since then? 1995 was…uh…wait. Twenty-three years ago? That can’t be right.

But it is. And a behind-the-scenes video of the recording sessions, posted online by Screenslam.com three years ago but making the viral rounds now, really brings it home. Sure, on the one hand you have guys like Wallace Shawn, the late Don Rickles, and John Ratzenberger who seem like they are somehow Time Lords who’ve stayed the same age forever. But then you see Tom Hanks, and to quote Tommy Wiseau in The Room, he look great, like a babyface, haha.

The real kicker, though, is seeing director John Lasseter, thin and with a full head of hair, to the point that he could almost be mistaken for Rian Johnson today. And of course he’s without his signature Pixar Hawaiian shirts, because no such thing existed. Meanwhile, it’s a heartbreaker to see the late Jim Varney, mugging for the behind-the-scenes cameras in classic Ernest P. Worrell fashion, knowing that he would only have a few years left to live.

But Tom Hanks and Tim Allen in the same studio, yelling at each other in Buzz and Woody voices like they’re on a Bosom Buddies/Home Improvement crossover? Classic.

Who’s your favorite Toy Story voice? Let us know in comments.
