For the past 15 months, Buzz Lightyear – or rather the Buzz Lightyear action figure/toy – spent time floating around the International Space Station as part of a NASA – Disney educational outreach program. Coincidentally, Buzz returned to Earth on September 11th, just in time to promote this weekend’s Toy Story and Toy Story 2 Digital 3D double feature.  Who’s going to see the movies again on the big screen?

    Ok, now I understand why my girlfriend asked if I wanted to go see the movies this weekend. I hadn’t made the connection. But I love these and look forward to the Digital 3D experience (my first!).

    I’m all too excited to see these in theaters! I can already guarantee that one my major highlights is going to be seeing the Buzz Lightyear moment at the beginning of Toy Story 2 in 3-D.
