For years people have been telling me what a good movie Toy Story is but I hadn’t actually watched any of the Toy Story movies until I had my son. We started watching the series in reverse (I’m not sure why) so Toy Story 3 was the first one we watched and we were hooked! I can’t count how many times we’ve watched it; in fact, I hear it on in the background right now. We then watched Toy Story 2 and loved that one as well. Can you believe that we haven’t watched the original Toy Story yet? We’ll soon get our chance because on March 16, 2013 at 6pm ET, the original Toy Story premieres on Disney Junior Canada! We are really excited to watch this commercial-free premiere and I can guarantee you that our PVR will be set! We’ve already started planning for a mini Toy Story party with special snacks.
Even if you don’t currently have the Disney Junior channel, you can still watch the special premiere on March 16th because Disney Junior is on free preview* all month long! You can use this guide to find out which channel to watch for your free month long preview.
