Penelope Wilhern has everything a girl could want: A wealthy, socialite family, an enchanted bedroom and some of the coolest clothes around. There is only one problem: She was born into a cursed family and has the face of a pig.

Penelope decides to break free from her family and go out into the world in search of adventure.

What do toys do when they're not played with? Cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Andy's favorite bedroom toy, tries to calm the other toys (some original, some classic) during a wrenching time of year--the birthday party, when newer toys may replace them. Sure enough, Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) is the new toy that takes over the throne. Buzz has a crucial flaw, though--he believes he's the real Buzz Lightyear, not a toy. Lasseter further scores with perfect voice casting, including Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn as a meek dinosaur. The director-animator won a special Oscar for "the development and inspired application of techniques that have made possible the first feature-length computer-animated film."
Do you believe in dragons? Ruling a make-believe world of fantasy and fairy tales these terrifying winged predators never existed in real life. But what if they had?

Combining live action natural history and state-of-the-art computer animation DRAGON'S WORLD: A FANTASY MADE REAL will reveal everything you ever wanted to know about these spectacular flying creatures and much much more.
