Disney Pixar is ramping up the publicity for Toy Story 3 (due next July) by re-releasing its two earlier incarnations in Disney Digital 3D. Toy Story 2 in 3D launches next January, but before that we have its seminal stablemate, and on the evidence of a recent viewing, John Lasseter’s film hasn’t aged at all. It’s so ingenious in concept, design and execution that you could watch it on a screen the size of a postage stamp and still be engulfed by its charm.

That said, there’s no denying that 3D has enhanced the experience threefold in the way it lifts the print off the screen and plonks it on the viewer’s lap. And because it was never made with a third dimension in mind, there’s no over-egging of the effects. When Lasseter’s first computer-generated foray was released back in 1995, it broke boundaries; seeing it nearly 15 years on only highlights its ability to seduce all generations with its wit and spirit. Roll on, Woody!
