If there is one movie that tugs on the heartstrings more than any other, it has to be Toy Story.
It didn’t take long before Buzz, Woody and the rest of the characters became family favorites. Their mishaps and adventures in all three of the Toy Story movies captured the hearts of audiences around the world. They were lots of fun to watch but it also followed the theme of growing up and how sometimes, it can have unexpected effects.
Many people consider Toy Story 3 to be one of the most touching animated films ever made. It shows the bond between the toys and their owner, Andy, who has now grown up and is about to go off to college. He is leaving all of his toys behind in the process.
One of the Toy Story characters that is more likely to invoke fear rather than fondness is the next-door neighbor, a bully named Sid.
He was the neighbor kid that just seemed to have some psychological issues that came out from time to time. For example, he did some rather alarming experiments on many of the toys that he had, which included chopping some of them up and gluing the pieces onto each other.
If I could take your mind away from those memories for a moment, you might have heard that Will Poulter, the star of The Maze Runner and We are the Millers has often been compared to Sid because of the way he looks.
Some may say that it is because of Sid’s sadistic behavior but last year, Will Poulter took things to the next level by dressing up as Sid for Halloween. He also did so for a good cause, as he pointed out on Twitter:
“This Halloween I thought I should respond to the comparisons with Disney Pixar’s biggest bully next door and go as Sid from Toy Story.

It’s great to see a celebrity step up to the plate and get behind a cause every once in a while. Will is one of those people.
