The creators of the beloved TOY STORY films re-open the toy box and bring moviegoers back to the delightful world of our favourite gang of toy characters in TOY STORY 3. As Andy prepares to depart for college, Buzz, Woody and the rest of his loyal toys are troubled about their uncertain future. TOY STORY 3 is a comical new adventure in Disney Digital 3D� that lands the toys in a room full of untamed tots who can't wait to get their sticky little fingers on these "new" toys. It's pandemonium as they try to stay together, ensuring "no toy gets left behind." Meanwhile, Barbie comes face to plastic face with Ken (yes, that Ken).
Lee Unkrich (co-director of TOY STORY 2 and FINDING NEMO) directs this highly anticipated film along with Pixar veteran Darla K Anderson (CARS, MONSTERS, INC.) who produces. Michael Arndt, Academy Award®-winning screenwriter of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, contributes his unique talents and comedic sensibilities to the production.
TOY STORY 3 follows the return of Disney Pixar's TOY STORY and TOY STORY 2 to the big screen as a Disney Digital 3Dä double-feature.
Director Lee Unkrich began at Pixar Animation Studios in 1994 as a film editor on TOY STORY and continued on to A BUG'S LIFE as the supervising film editor. He made his directing debut in 1999 as co-director of the Golden Globe®-winning TOY STORY 2. Unkrich co-directed MONSTERS, INC. and served as co-director and supervising film editor of the Oscar®-winning animated feature FINDING NEMO.
The original TOY STORY voice cast is set to return in TOY STORY 3, including John Ratzenberger (voice of Hamm), who is the only actor to voice a character in all 11 Disney•Pixar films. Also returning is Oscar®-winning songwriter and composer Randy Newman (TOY STORY, TOY STORY 2, MONSTERS, INC.).
TOY STORY, originally released on 22 November 1995, was the first fully computer animated feature film and the highest grossing movie of the year with nearly $192 million domestically and $362 million worldwide. It was nominated for three Oscars® and two Golden Globes®.
TOY STORY director John Lasseter was awarded a Special Achievement Award (Oscar®) by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his "inspired leadership of the Pixar TOY STORY team, resulting in the first feature-length computer-animated film."
TOY STORY 2 is the first film ever to be entirely created, mastered and exhibited digitally. It was also the first animated sequel to gross more than its original, breaking opening weekend box office records in the US, UK and Japan, becoming the highest grossing animated release of 1999 with more than $245 million in domestic box office receipts and $485 million worldwide. It was nominated for an Academy Award® and two Golden Globes®, winning the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture/Comedy Musical. It won a Grammy® for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or other Visual Media (Randy Newman, "When She Loved Me").
