Toy Story 2 almost went straight to DVD!

By: Crissy Chauvet.

We are all fans of “Infinity and Beyond”, but the second installment of this excellent series almost didn’t make it to the theaters.

Disney executives initially decided this installment was not going to be as popular as the first, and was best sent directly to DVD instead of hitting theaters. However, once they saw the quality of the work and story line, they began to second guess that decision. After getting pressure from the films stars, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, they finally decided to release it in theaters.

It’s a good thing they did, too. Had they sent it directly to DVD, they would have lost out on an even bigger hit than the original, eventually bringing in nearly $500 million worldwide.
