Toy Story is one my favorite movies and is one I have been watching since I was a child. Disney Pixar is one of the best combinations of movie companies to ever work together to make movies. All of their movies have elements for both adults and children; resulting in the success that their movies have. But even their most classic and recognizable film, Toy Story has a plot hole involving Buzz Lightyear.
Buzz Lightyear, voiced by Tim Allen, enters as the new toy in Andy’s room and is greeted by the other toys. Buzz denies he is a toy and does not know what they are talking about. To Buzz he really is THE Buzz Lightyear. He thinks his light-up laser is real and can actually freeze and shoot the other toys. Buzz thinks when he takes off his helmet he would be choked by the foreign air. But none of these things are real. Buzz Lightyear thinks he really is a Star Commander, but he is just a toy. So if Buzz thinks he is real space warrior, why did he fall down when Andy walked in the room, like all the other toys? Did he fall to peer pressure? Did he seem the giant human and just collapse? Was it his innate sense of actually being a toy? This question of why does Buzz fall like the other toys, is a plot hole in the movie. If Buzz truly believes he is a space commander, then why does he act like a toy when his human Andy appears.
This is only a minor plot hole to the movie, but it is a short break in Buzz’s character. Toy Story is still one of the greatest animated movie by Disney-Pixar and of all time, but this minor plot hole is just a slip up by the writers.
