Would you believe we’ve already done an Elvis-themed movie quiz, all the way back in the second week of Film Quiz Friday? Well, somewhere between Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis being Tom Hanks’ latest and last week’s Lightyear still playing in cinemas, we’ve landed upon the theme of Pixar’s Toy Story movies this week instead, and Woody, Buzz, and the gang are well represented in this week’s 30-question selection.

Once you’ve finished all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. To infinity and… well, you know the rest.
