Today in class we started with a presentation on toy story. Toy Story is a computer animated film made by Pixar Animations. The movie is about toys that come to life when humans are not present and focuses on the relationships between the toys themselves as well as the humans who own them. The main characters in the film are Woody, Buzz, Andy, Mr. Potato Head, and Dinosaur. The voices of these characters was also discussed. Tom Hanks was the voice of Sheriff Woody and Tim Allen was the voice of Buzz Lightyear. Toy Story is now considered one of the best animated films ever made, it received huge praise from critics and was the highest earning film on its opening weekend. The film was so successful they made two sequels: Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.
After they finished presenting, we all presented out puppet presentations. The first group that went did a French book and had French music playing in the background. The next group that presented was my group. We narrated the book Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman. The story is a retelling of the Brothers Grimm tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Snow, Glass, Apples was written from the point of view of Snow White’s stepmother, the Queen. However, in this version, Snow white is not a beautiful, kind princess. Instead she is an evil creature who killed her own father. The queen narrates the story through flashbacks. Even though the characters are completely different a few things remained the same. After our group finished our puppet presentation about 3 more groups went. Each presented their short stories and then the class ended with a reminder on teacher evaluations.
