Lee Kirwin


Lee is an avid 80's action fan classing Predator and Terminator among his favourites, outside of those he loves Brokeback Mountain. When he's not binging movies he can be found keeping fit, attending Comic Con and wearing Star Wars socks of all things.

Toy Story was the first CGI animated movie produced by Pixar and released in 1995.

This movie marks the beginning of a new era in animation because it was also the first CGI animated movie in the industry.

From then on, the animation industry has changed a lot, and Toy Story has become a successful franchise spawning three sequels, TV series, video games, comics, etc.

But what happens if you want to watch Toy Story on Netflix? Can you find it there? Keep reading this article to find out the answer!

Can I watch Toy Story on Netflix?

Sadly no. A while ago, Toy Story was available in a few countries on Netflix, but it was recently removed, and it’s not coming back.

Where is Toy Story available?

Toy Story is available exclusively on Disney+ globally. Actually, everything Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars are only available on this platform now.

Depending on where you live, it could be Disney+ like in most countries or Hotstar like in India and South-East Asian countries like Malaysia, Thailand, etc.

However, Disney+ is not available everywhere yet.

So if you live in a country where the streaming service is not available, you’ll need some help.

What do you need to watch Toy Story?

If you happen to be in a region where Disney+ is still not available like the Eastern European countries, you need an app called VPN to access Disney+.

What is a VPN?

A VPN is a tool to protect your privacy online that hides your real location (IP address). So it lets you appear like you’re somewhere else.

This also allows you to access streaming services that aren’t in your country or to other libraries like what happens with Netflix.

For example, if you live in Poland, you can have access to Disney+ with a VPN, although the service is not available in your country. And if you have a Netflix account, you can access Netflix US, UK, or Canada, where you’ll find a lot more content.

Which is the best VPN?

Choosing a VPN can be a difficult task if you’re new in this field. But don’t worry! I’ve already done the homework for you!

I’ve tested the most popular VPN services and came to the conclusion that ExpressVPN is the best you can get.

ExpressVPN has outstanding connection speeds that make your streaming experience perfect. Also, it has a super-easy-to-use app you can install on all your devices, and you can’t miss the 49% off in the annual package.

Of course, if you want to look at more options, I recommend NordVPN and Surfshark. Both options are great with similar features.

These three VPN services come with a 30-day money-back guarantee for you to test the service without risking your money.

What is Toy Story about?

When no one is watching and children are away, the toys come alive. Woody, a cowboy doll, gets jealous of Buzz Lightyear, a space ranger action figure that his owner Andy gets as a birthday present.

When both Woody and Buzz get lost, they need to go back home before Andy realizes his two favourite toys are missing.

What else can you do with a VPN?

As I mentioned before, a VPN is a security tool to protect your online activity.

However, lately, VPNs have become popular to unblock streaming services and access content that’s not available in your region.

Netflix has different content for each country due to copyright holders’ limitations. So, with a VPN, you can unblock any Netflix library in the world and access all the content that’s not available in your region.

Disney+ works similarly, with different content depending on the region, for example, the Star Hub is only present in Australia, Canada, Europe, and some Asian countries, while in the US you must pay for Hulu to access that same content.


Toy Story is not available on Netflix anymore because Disney+ has exclusivity.

However, depending on where you live, Disney+ is not available yet, and you’ll need the help of a VPN like ExpressVPN to access the service.

Also, with a VPN, you can unblock different Netflix regions and access a lot of content you regularly can’t.

And don’t forget a VPN is a security tool that will keep all your online activity secure and safe.

So, while Toy Story is no longer available on Netflix, you will need to look to Disney+ to get your fix of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang.
