Yeah, I noticed that, too. Ah, well.
On the subject of minuscule linguistic quibbles, I also heard someone else say that the characters in the movie pronounce "Toronto" like Americans rather than like Torontonians. Could any Canadian TTers confirm or deny?
Wait, do Canadians pronounce "Toronto" differently than Americans? That one's new to me.
I believe, for the locals, the second T is silent.
It rhymes with "piranha"
I sincerely appreciate this explanation!I haven't seen the movie yet, but I can maybe provide some clarity as a Torontonian. For most locals, the second "t" is indeed silent, so I pronounce it "Teronno" or even elide the first syllable, to make it "Tronno". The rhyme with "piranha" that Bongo brings up is definitely a real pronunciation (so "Terahnnah" or "Trahnnah") but I associate it with a more rural or at least suburban accent - that might not be accurate though. The "Toe-Ron-Toe" pronunciation is definitely stereotypically American, but is really just a non-Ontario thing I think. My friends from Manitoba and Saskatchewan pronounce it that way, and I even had a friend in high school who pronounced it that way, even though he was from Toronto (although his mom was from Michigan, so maybe that's why).
It wouldn't surprise me to hear people from Toronto pronounce it the "American" way, although people would probably comment on it.
As an aside, the Toronto pronunciation doesn't bother me nearly as much as Americans saying Montreal or Newfoundland wrong (although I've actually heard a variety of pronunciations deemed as "right" for Newfoundland). Or even worse, saying Montreal with a French accent to sound smart and still getting it completely wrong.
I mean, the idea is it's supposed to be the mythos within the Toy Story universe. By now Andy is taking his kids to see this movie.I'm kind of fascinated and confused by the concept of the upcoming Pixar movie about "the origin story of the original Buzz Lightyear". I mean, if it's set in the space-faring future, how could he have inspired a toyline in the present-day Toy Story world?
Also, if this movie is successful, will the next Pixar movie be a wild west story with a tense scene where the protagonist is trying to slowly get a snake out of his boot?
Andy : He doesn't get implanted with a xenomorph at this time.Now I wish that the movie would be like The Princess Bride, cutting between Buzz's adventures and Andy and his child watching the movie and bonding over it.
