Toy Story 3 in 3D

No Toy Gets Left Behind
June 18, 2010

Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toys get dumped in a daycare when Andy goes to college. This is especially poignant for me as all of my children have just gone off to college, leaving a smattering of their toys - and me - behind. (gameboys - remember those!? - broken VCRs - old musical instruments - old T-shirts - random happy meal toys - & get this: a talking Woody on repeat "there's a snake in my boot there's a snake in my boot there's a snake in my boot..")
You know I'm a Pixar girl. But historically, nobody likes the third movie in a series. Historically, Pixar doesn't even do sequels. In fact, Pixar has 2 sequels in their 15 years of movie making: Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. I'm not sure they can pull it off. Daycare proponents might get loud and nasty. Woody and Buzz may have run out of clever banter.

This is a big year for finality. Shrek 3: The Final Chapter comes out in May and then Toy Story 3 in June. We are preparing Eva for Toy Story 3. Patti took her to Disney on Ice where she saw some Toy Story characters and then I rented Toy Story 1 with her and watched it recently. Her favorite characters? The army men. Go figure. She walks around imitating them now. Sir, yes sir. Alright, men, you heard him, Code Red: move move move move!

I'm looking forward to June 18. Here's a clip:
