Why It’s So Special: So many of the strange worlds and stories that Pixar ask us to fall in love with work because there’s often a child surrogate on the screen, voicing our own innocence and enchantment.
As Andy, Morris brought such enthusiasm for his toys that we were instantly sold on why Woody and Co were proud to be his – and why the now 25-year-old actor’s return in Toy Story 3 was such a wrenching experience.
Morris speaks: “I remember when the first film came out, I would play, and then I would leave my toys, and I would close the door, and then I’d crack the door open just to peek really quickly to see if they were moving.”

Insults in the Star Wars universe don’t make much sense in our system, but as takedowns go, Leia’s is one of the most quotable: “Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder!”
To which, naturally, Han replies: “Who’s scruffy-looking?” Guess he doesn’t think Nerf herders are all that bad.
