We had no idea what we were in for when we headed to the theatre with our 2 1/2 year old in tow, to see Toy Story 3! What I anticipated to be a “wiggly” time, coercing a 2 year old to stay in her seat and pay attention to the movie, turned into myself placing my finger under her nose multiple times throughout the movie to ensure she was still breathing! She was enthralled with the movie and from the moment she left the theatre, she was certain that she had taken on a new identity as the cowgirl named Jessie!
I’m thrilled to announce that today, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios present the critically-acclaimed, global box office smash Toy Story 3, an exciting, heart-warming story filled with humor, adventure and surprises, that reunites America’s favorite animated toys, Buzz and Woody, and introduces a whole new set of favorites to audiences around the globe! Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, 2 Disc Blu-ray and DVD, the film will capture the imaginations of fans everywhere, who have come to love and cherish these unique characters.
Toy Story 3 welcomes Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the whole gang back as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in… day care! These untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice, so it’s all for one and one for all as plans for the great escape get underway. More than a few new faces—some plastic, some plush—join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie’s counterpart Ken (voice of Michael Keaton), a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants (voice of Timothy Dalton) and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear (voice of Ned Beatty). Directed by Lee Unkrich (co-director of Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo), produced by Pixar veteran Darla K. Anderson (Cars, Monsters, Inc.) and written by Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine), Toy Story 3 is a comical new adventure!
The colors and animation in Toy Story 3 are truly breathtaking and the movie keeps audiences young and old entertained throughout! The Blu-ray Combo Pack is the best deal, coming equipped with 4 discs: 1 Disc DVD; 2 Disc Blu-ray; 1 Disc Digital Copy and it’s loaded with bonus features…
