Minecraft Toy Story Mashup? C’mon Guys?!
For the past several years, the word “Minecraft” has been the one most heard in my house by Alexa. Moreover, the phrase “Toy Story” has been a consistent call around the crib for much longer. So, when my middle guy, Scott, brought a new Minecraft mashup (DLC?) to my attention, I really wasn’t too surprised to find Toy Story on the screen.

These days, movie tie-ins with sometimes completely unrelated products are no longer unusual. Even more so with the somewhat related worlds of films and games, and especially ones where imaginations can fly. So it’s that surprising to hear that Toy Story has teamed up with a game developer to help spread the word about its latest installment. It is, however, perhaps a bit surprising to hear that Disney and Pixar have chosen Minecraft to be the vehicle of that message.
Then again, there are few games that have widespread appeal that at least fits the franchise’s wacky and fun-loving theme. Battle royales like Fortnite are hardly appropriate for that. Minecraft, in comparison, makes it easy to create new worlds and skin new characters to make them look like your favorite toys.
The Minecraft Toy Story mashup, however, does more than just paint the world in a different way, it also practically puts the player in the shoes of a toy. That means everything will look gigantic when you step into this mash-up world.
There’s not a heck of a lot that would get to me to think seriously about playing Minecraft. I’m still not playing the game. But I may watch my kids playing this version. Be sure to check out the full Slashgear piece, too.
How about you? Have you tried the Minecraft Toy Story mashup? Will you?
