RE: Who directed and wrote Toy Story (1995)?
Toy Story (1995), the groundbreaking computer-animated feature film, was directed by John Lasseter. As for its screenplay, it was the result of a collaborative effort from multiple writers. The writing team consisted of: - Joss Whedon: Known for creating a multitude of successful TV series like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly", as well as directing Marvel's "The Avengers". - Andrew Stanton: He would later direct award-winning Pixar movies such as "Finding Nemo" and "WALL-E". - Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow: Reputable screenwriters and authors with various Hollywood scripts under their belts. This ensemble, together with the creative genius of Lasseter, fueled the birth of one of the most iconic and beloved franchises in animation history, one that challenged conventions and pushed the boundaries of storytelling, comedy, and cinematic technology. Please note that the movie sprouted from a story by John Lasseter, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, and Joe Ranft, four central figures in the history of Pixar. In this context, the term "story" refers to the basic narrative or plot of the movie, whereas the "screenplay" involves the particular script or dialogue written for that plot.
