�Toy Story� -- Featuring the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, John Ratzenberger and Don Rickles, �Toy Story� was the first full-length animated feature film to be created entirely by artists using computer tools and technology. The movie tells the story of a little boy�s (Andy) favorite toy, a cowboy doll named Woody, who is cast aside when an action figure in a space suit named Buzz Lightyear is introduced and wins the affections of Andy and the other toys. Woody and Buzz quickly strike up a rivalry, but when they find themselves trapped in the neighborhood bully�s house, they must learn to overcome their differences to return to their owner.

�Toy Story 2� � With the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Kelsey Grammer, Joan Cusack and Wayne Knight, �Toy Story 2� picks up with a greedy toy collector who steals Woody, now highly collectible, and prepares to put him behind glass for good. As the toy gang risks becoming road kill in a daring rescue, Woody discovers he�s the �pi�ce de r�sistance� in the collector�s �Woody�s Roundup� set. In the end, he must choose between living forever or going back to his owner, Andy, where he�s loved but where he might not last another year.

�Lady and the Tramp� -- Featuring the voices of Peggy Lee, Barbara Luddy, Larry Roberts, Bill Thompson, Bill Boucom, Stan Freberg, Verna Felton, Alan Reed, George Givot, Dal McKennon and Lee Millar, �Lady and the Tramp� tells the tale of a dog named Lady who finds herself being fitted for the unthinkable � a muzzle! In her bid for freedom, she meets and is charmed by Tramp, dog-about-town. Together with friends Jock, Trusty and Peg, they share thrilling adventures on a bella notte, as Lady learns what it means to be footloose and leash free.

�A Bug�s Life� � With the voices of Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey, Phyllis Diller, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Roddy McDowall, �A Bugs Life� tells the story of Flik, the smartest ant in his colony. Flik invents a device to harvest grain faster so the colony can build a mountain of food as an offering to a tyrannical band of grasshoppers. Unfortunately Flik spills the offering and Hopper, the leader of the grasshoppers, makes his great displeasure known � and promises grave consequences if the offering is not restored.

�Lilo & Stitch� � Featuring the voices of Chris Sanders, Daveigh Chase, Tia Carrere, Ving Rhames, David Ogden Stiers, Kevin McDonald, Jason Scott Lee, Zoe Caldwell and Kevin Michael Richardson, �Lilo & Stitch� is about a small alien creature created by a mad scientist. Deemed too dangerous for society, Experiment 626 is sentenced to exile but escapes. After crash-landing in Hawaii, 626 ends up in a dog pound, dazed and confused. Lilo, a young, lonely Hawaiian girl living with her sister, Nani, picks the strange looking �doggy� as her companion and names it Stitch. Meanwhile, the mad scientist who created 626 has been sent to recover his little experiment, while Nani must prove to a social worker that she is providing a proper home for Lilo � a task made more difficult as Stitch explores his new environment.

�The Princess Diaries� � Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews, Hector Elizondo and Mandy Moore star in this heartwarming film about a geeky 15-year-old girl, Mia Thermopolis -- living with her eclectic, single artist mother in San Francisco -- who is visited for the first time by her grandmother and learns that she�s the princess of Genovia. Having not known her father due to his sudden death when she was a child, Mia was unaware he was the crown prince of Genovia, thus making her the direct heir to the thrown. After an extreme makeover, Mia begins �princess lessons� to see if she has what it takes, all the while grappling with learning who her real friends and family are.
