A Comparison of Beauty and the Beast with Toy Story


Disney is an excellent example of a Media corporation as it is known
worldwide, go any where in the world and ask someone about Mickey
Mouse or Daffy Duck and they will know that you are talking about
Disney. They have a huge range of advertising and merchandise ranging
from children's books and films to holiday resorts and theme parks.
The Disney brand appeals to all, children and adults alike.

Beauty and the Beast is a classic film using old style animation
techniques. It has been recently digitally re-mastered for the next
generation to enjoy the magic of Disney. In comparison Toy Story uses
computer generated images which saves time and gives a more realistic
feel to the film.

Although these are very different films they still have some
similarities. In both films the main characters go on journeys to
learn something about life or about them-selves. In Beauty and the
Beast the main characters are human if you count the beast as a human
and in Toy Story the main focus is on the toys. Both films appeal to a
wide audience although Toy Story has some more mature humour and
references to more adult-orientated films.


Woody is a very stereotypical cowboy. The boots, cowboy hat and

brand new and shiny with lots of cool gadgets. As the story moves on
Woody begins to change and realize that Buzz is not such a threat as
he first assumed. He begins to change to what he was before, leading
the way and setting a good example. He helps them get to Pizza Planet
and saves Buzz from being blown up by a firework by their evil next
door neighbour, Sid.

Sid is a villainous character; he destroys toys for fun and is feared
by all of the toys. Woody shows his great leadership again when he
organizes the toys in a revolt against Sid, leaving him shaken and
very scared. He is a very dark character and this is shown by his
image, a black t-shirt with a skull on, scruffy hair and chipped,
black teeth. His dog Scud is like a sidekick sharing Sid's hate for
toys, regularly chewing them to pieces.

The way in which the toys are represented is important as well, when
there is humans around the toys are looked down on from a higher
perspective. The toys were first seen as inanimate...
