The staggering CGI difference between Toy Story and Toy Story 4

CGI has come a long way since 1995. That's when Toy Story, the first ever entirely computer-generated feature film, was released (yep, it feels like it's been around for infinity). But while the first film still holds up today, the difference between that and 2019's Toy Story 4 is, at times, mind-blowing.

While the main characters themselves haven't always needed to look realistic (being, you know, toys), it's humans and animals that reveal the stark difference 24 years makes. Redditors recently compared a dog from Toy Story with a cat from Toy Story 4 – and the contrast is simply night and day.
