Darth Vader vs Buzz Lightyear

We’ve seen plenty of videos of various fictional characters going head-to-head in a fight to see who would emerge the victor. But I’m not sure there’s ever been one as ridiculous as this one. Thankfully, it’s also super entertaining.

In the video, we get to see what might happen if legendary Star Wars villain Darth Vader crossed paths with a human-sized, more realistic, weaponized Buzz Lightyear from Pixar’s Toy Story.

You can find out how the battle plays out in the video below.

Disney In Depth: 25 Best ‘Toy Story’ Quotes
space

Disney In Depth banner

How much do I love Toy Story? Like many who grew up with the 1995 masterpiece that introduced us all to Pixar, I appreciated every little ounce of it. Its ridiculous amount of terrific quotes symbolizes one of those reasons. Many of us entertainment buffs gravitate to movie quotes because they are poignant, funny, universal, or sometimes all three. The Toy Story films possess a mix of these qualities and offer too many great quotes that can fit in one edition. Therefore, I am dividing up the 25 best quotes per film over several editions of Disney In Depth in the next few months.

Let’s metaphorically travel back to 1995 and recall the excitement upon hearing – and eventually quoting – these 25 brilliant lines from Toy Story for the first time.

Release Date: November 1, 2011

I am a sucker for animation. From Saturday morning cartoons to epic feature films, I have always been drawn to the medium. Disney movies were staples in my household, and we owned a ton of them. In fact, my current DVD/Blu-Ray collection probably has its roots in how I felt when bringing home a new Disney movie on video. Not only did the package contain the film that I loved, but the glossy, white-rimmed boxes were different from all the other VHS cassettes we had. They were a sight to behold, and though the format has changed over the years, Disney has never disappointed in their home video releases. Always at the forefront of trends, Disney/Pixar’s release of Toy Story 2‘s 3D Combo Pack is a beautiful one.

Writer: Jesse Blaze Snider

Release date: May 5, 2010

What’s the most exciting return going on in comics today? The Return of Bruce Wayne? No, the Return of Buzz Lightyear!

You know, as I am being exposed to more and more kid-friendly comics, I find myself truly appreciating their appeal. Lighthearted humor mixed with a small dose of drama to propel a storyline is the perfect combination to make a successful all-ages and family-friendly story, whether it be traditional prose, television, film, or comics, and this Toy Story series from BOOM! Kids definitely meets the criteria.

With a story based on the popular Disney/Pixar franchise, the Toy Story comic book truly expands the universe of Andy’s Room. In Toy Story: The Return of Buzz Lightyear, Andy mistakenly receives a gift of another Buzz Lightyear who is so determined to stay in Andy’s Room and claim the title of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, that he fights and places our Buzz Lightyear into the new toy’s package and has him returned to the Toy Store.

Written by Jesse Blaze Snider
Art by Nathan Wilson and Mike DeCarlo
Colors by Mickey Clausen and Eric Cobain
Letters by Deron Bennett
BOOM! Studios
Price: $2.99
Release date: April 14, 2010

Toy Story #3 continues the ongoing series with part four of The Return of Buzz Lightyear. This storyline started with Andy receiving a new Buzz Lightyear toy. When they found out that Andy was going to return the new Buzz Lightyear for a different toy, we see the new Buzz force the old Buzz, or ‘Sally’, into the box so he doesn’t have to return to the shelf of the store. This spurs a rescue mission with the new Buzz and the recently purchased Booster. In the last issue, new Buzz and Sally are in a race to see who should go back to Andy and the new Buzz cheats by releasing a display of bouncing balls to stop Sally from winning the race. In this issue, we see the conclusion of the race and a lot of the backstory of the new Buzz and the end of his adventure.

toy story 2Toy Story 2
Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo
Directed by John Lasseter
Starring Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Joan Cusack, Kelsey Grammer, Don Rickles
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: March 23, 2010

Toy Story 2 had a lot to live up to. The original Toy Story was an instant hit both critically and commercially. It’s success started PIxar down the path of awesomeness that would eventually lead to nine other formidable films that I still cherish. So the question is, how would they follow up such a massive hit? With more of the same, as it turns out.

Where the first film focused on Buzz Lightyear more and was really his story, the sequel gives a similar treatment for our favorite cowboy, Woody. Woody’s friend and owner Andy heads off to cowboy camp leaving his toys to their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector named Al McWhiggin (owner of Al’s Toy Barn) kidnaps Woody. At Al’s apartment, Woody discovers that he is a highly valued collectible from a 1950s TV show called Woody’s Roundup, and he meets the other prized toys from that show, Jessie the Cowgirl, Bullseye the Horse, and Stinky Pete the Prospector. Back at the scene of the crime, Buzz Lightyear and the other toys from Andy’s room — Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Rex, and Hamm — spring into action to rescue their pal from winding up as a museum piece. The toys get into one predicament after another in their daring race to get Woody before Andy returns.

New ‘Toy Story 3’ Clip Looks Deeper Into The Choices That Need To Be Made

Toy Story 3

A brand new clip has shown up online for the exciting upcoming trilogy-making Toy Story 3, complete with an introduction from director Lee Unkrich.

In the first full trailer for the movie, we saw Andy, now 18-years-old and heading off to college (and still voiced by original actor John Morris), holding Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) in his hands, deciding what to do with them and his other old toys. This was a favorite part of the trailer because we’ve all looked at old toys many years after we loved them so much and still felt that natural connection to them. In this clip, we get a lot more from this scene and how the movie is going to be set up when we finally see it on June 18, 2010.

This Toy Story 3 clip is set to air on ABC Family when they air The Incredibles on Christmas night at 8:30. Click on over to the other side to check it out right now!
