Toy Story 2 is a CGI animation film and the sequel to Toy Story, and the third Disney/Pixar feature film, which featured the adventures of a group of toys that come to life when humans are not around to see them.
Like the first film, Toy Story 2 was produced by Pixar Animation Studios, directed by John Lasseter, Lee Unkrich, and Ash Brannon and released by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution in the United States on November 19, 1999, and the United Kingdom on 11 February 2000.
Toy Story 2 made over $245,000,000 in its initial US theatrical run, far surpassing the original, and in fact, every other animated movie to that date except for The Lion King, though both were later eclipsed by another Pixar movie, Finding Nemo.

 RC DVD Review: Toy Story Ultimate Toybox
Toy Story 2 is divided into 35 chapters and stored on a dual-layered disc containing 5.3 gigabytes of data, with the layer change at 05.24 into chapter 22, or 0:52.02 into the movie.
Toy Story incorporates the same track as on the earlier laserdisc release, so all participants are reintroduced after each "side break" – which of course doesn’t happen on DVDs.
The Toy Story 2 disc has a more limited compilation of extras, featuring one of Pixar’s famous outtakes reels, their first animated short, "Luxo Jr.", plus preview trailers for their next movie "Monsters Inc." and for the earlier released cell-animated movie "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins".

 SPLICEDwire | "Toy Story 2" review (1999)
"Toy Story 2" returns to the candy-coated, semi-synthetic visual style of its inspiration, and even takes it up a notch, with such life-like renderings that within minutes the play-time world of Andy's bedroom becomes your own reality for the length of the picture.
"Toy Story 2" is a both a genuinely emotional parable about outgrowing childhood and a screwball rescue mission that kicks into gear after Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) is stolen by a greedy toy collector while trying to save another of Andy's toys from a garage sale.
They recruit help inside a giant toy store, where they are momentarily distracted by a gaggle of partying Barbies and have a run-in with Buzz's nemesis, the nefarious galactic Emperor Zurg (voiced by Andrew Stanton, one of two co-directors on the film).

It overcame the second-feature jinx with last year's gorgeous "A Bug's Life," and it triumphs over "sequelitis" in "Toy Story 2," which goes even further than the original in celebrating and satirizing the real bonds between humans and toys -- and the imaginary bonds among playthings.
Rather than exhaust the toys' possibilities, the Pixar team keeps opening them up -- maybe because the manic camaraderie of the toy box echoes the madcap creativity of its meeting rooms and cubicles.
In an interview two weeks ago, Joe Ranft, the co-head of story (along with Dan Jeup), told me that when they first got the idea that "Toy Story 2" could contain a cheeky "Star Wars" parody, "We were all cracking up.
