Toy Story 10th Anniversary Edition in September

Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Toy Story 10th Anniversary Edition for 6th September 2005 priced at $29.99 SRP. In celebration of the anniversary of Pixar's ground-breaking computer animated film’s theatrical debut, this new 10th Anniversay Edition utilizes advanced video technology to provide a higher digital “bit rate” than the original presentation -- the highest in a Disney presentation of a Pixar film on DVD ever. The Toy Story 10th Anniversary Edition boasts a remarkable audio experience thanks to enhancement by seven-time Academy Award®-winner* Gary Rydstrom. Rydstrom, who recently joined Pixar and was an original member of the Toy Story production team, re-visits the film to supercharge the audio to a powerful new Dolby Surround-sound 5.1 EX Mix, the finest DVD audio quality available.
