With the release of Disney•Pixar's THE GOOD DINOSAUR into theaters last month, a milestone was celebrated - 20 years of Disney•Pixar animated feature films. It was November of 1995 when audiences first stepped inside of Andy's room to begin a decades-long series of adventures with Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Rex and an ever-expanding crew of toys - some familiar, some not. With TOY STORY as fresh as ever for new generations of audiences (fueled by cool shorts like the recent TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT), Disney Consumer Products has partnered with Mattel for a new collection of 20th Anniversary Toys - one of which (Andy's Room Buddies 7-Pack Figure Gift Set) arrived here at Rock Father HQ in a surprise box - packed alongside THE GOOD DINOSAUR Galloping Butch Figure by TOMY... Pixar's past and present in figure form.

When it comes to Disney•Pixar's TOY STORY franchise, one of the smartest things they've done is keep the adventures fresh with spin-off TOY STORY TOONS and TV Specials. These stand-alone adventures have been perfect for introducing new characters and keeping Buzz, Woody and all of their friends current in the minds of what is now a couple generations - two decades past the 1995 debut of the first TOY STORY feature film. While they've all been big hits here, none has hit the mark more than TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT - a 22-minute short film that premiered on ABC ahead of Christmas 2014. Released now on Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT is a featured pick in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine as a perfect stocking stuffer for TOY STORY-loving kids and grownups alike... especially ones that grew up in the 1980s (like me) and are raising kids right now.

Trailer: Disney•Pixar's FINDING DORY!

Disney-Pixar's 2003 film, FINDING NEMO is another example of a modern classic that my wife and I saw and purchased prior to having kids. Now, a dozen years and two kids (for us) later, the trailer for the long-awaited sequel just made its debut on THE ELLEN SHOW, and I've got it for you here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine. FINDING DORY puts the Ellen DeGeneres-voiced forgetful fish in the spotlight, and here's your first look at what will be swimming into theaters in June of 2016!

INSIDE OUT
This summer, Disney•Pixar's INSIDE OUT did exactly what so many films in that library tend to do - it inspired bigger discussions about important things, like emotions. As grownups, we tend to see things differently than our little ones, and that's a big part of INSIDE OUT. In many ways, the film is even more emotionally-moving for adults than kids - but the fact that kids are so into the colorful adventures of Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust and Fear makes it easier to open some doors that could easily remain closed. Having seen the film at the Drive-in this summer, the girls were waiting for it to come home, and a trip to Walmart yielded plenty of INSIDE OUT for all (available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD) along with some new additions to our collection of INSIDE OUT toys by TOMY.  We were specifically on a mission to locate Riley's imaginary friend, Bing Bong.

As Disney•Pixar's INSIDE OUT prepares to make an Oscar run, the emotionally-stirring animated film has come home for the holidays - on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere now, and on Blu-ray and DVD November 3.  And while THE GOOD DINOSAUR is the next Disney•Pixar film to be headed for theaters (opening on Thanksgiving), the emotions inside of Riley's head are already looking forward to December... December 18, to be specific. It's an undeniable fact that the final trailer for J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS has stirred an emotional response for millions, and you don't have to be flesh and blood to find yourself moved. Even emotions rendered in pixels have feelings... even though they are feelings. Would you like to win INSIDE OUT on Digital HD (ARV $19.99)? Read on, friends...
