I wanna watch Toy Story 3 because I was there for Toy Story 1 & 2. When the first Toy Story came out in theater back in 1995, I was a graphic design student and 3D animation was a big thing. Toy Story was the first out of the 10 successful feature 3D animation films by Pixar that hit the big screen.
A little googling on the Internet, I found out that Toy Story was the top-grossing film which earn over $191 million in the United States and Canada during its initial theatrical release and took in more than $361 million worldwide.
Toy Story 2 came along in November 1999 and the movie kept most of the original characters and voices from the first movie, including Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn, Annie Potts, John Ratzenberger, John Morris, and Laurie Metcalf. They are joined by new characters voiced by Jodi Benson, Joan Cusack, Kelsey Grammer, Estelle Harris, and Wayne Knight. Toy Story too was a huge success. The movie made a total gross of $485 million worldwide.
Being the graphic guy I am, I was not really keen about the walking and talking toys. I was more into the awesome 3D animation by Pixar. The hilarious storyline and plot was a bonus.
After the successful production of Toy Story series, I’m now looking forward to watch Toy Story 3, which will be aired in cinemas this coming June 2010.
Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, John Ratzenberger, Wallace Shawn, Jeff Pidgeon, Jodi Benson, and R. Lee Ermey, John Morris, and Laurie Metcalf all reprise their roles from the previous films. However, Jim Varney, who played Slinky Dog in the first two movies, and Joe Ranft, who had voiced Lenny and Wheezy, both passed away since the second film.
In Toy Story 3, Andy (John Morris) is now a teenage boy (18 years old). He is just days away from heading off to college, and his toys, including Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), are worried about their uncertain future.
Toy Story 3 will also be featuring a whole bunch of new toys and one that I especially like is Mr. Pricklepants. Mr. Pricklepants is this really rather fluffy (than prickly) porcupine and it kinda reminds me of Dokumon… with a mane.
I’m looking forward to catch this movie on the big screen soon… in 3D! Yeah!
