Toy Story 3 (2010)
Toy Story 3 Synopsis
The creators of the beloved “Toy Story” films re-open the toy box and bring moviegoers back to the delightful world of Woody, Buzz and our favorite gang of toy characters in TOY STORY 3. Woody and Buzz had accepted that their owner Andy would grow up someday, but what happens when that day arrives? In the third installment, Andy is preparing to depart for college, leaving his loyal toys troubled about their uncertain future. Lee Unkrich (co-director of “Toy Story 2” and “Finding Nemo”) directs this highly anticipated film, and Michael Arndt, the Academy Award®-winning screenwriter of “Little Miss Sunshine,” brings his unique talents and comedic sensibilities to the proceedings. TOY STORY 3 will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Toy Story 3 Was Originally Set In Taiwan And Involved Transformers
If you scan through all of the images, you can see a lot of traces of elements that ended up in Lee Unkrich’s Toy Story 3. Instead of recalled toys in a Taiwanese factory, the action in 3 shifted to a daycare center, where Lotso lorded over broken, rejected toys.

It's All Connected! Pixar Theory Obsessively Incorporates Every Movie Into One Timeline
No, this theory isn’t meant to be treated as gospel. It’s a fun exploration that admittedly makes Pixar sound like a more together studio than some of its weaker films may have us believe. As a geeky icebreaker, it’s hard to beat.

How Would Star Trek Into Darkness Look With Toy Story Characters?
Given the amount of time that we have spent (wasted?) scouring the Star Trek footage for clues to the sequel, I admire and envy, deeply, the mind that is able to step back and see the images through different eyes … and immediately understand that it works just as well – if not better – with Woody, Buzz and Jessie in the leads.

The series experimented with a longer-form story with the recent TV movie Across the Second Dimension, but this will be the first foray into theatrical programming.

From Grief To Madness: 7 Villains Turned Evil By Loss
While many a movie antagonist’s evil is rooted in greed, jealousy, and/or a need for power, there are some whose stories begin in a much sadder place, with loss being the catalyst to set them on the course for evil. The following characters are as different from one another as the movies they’re featured in are, which is what makes them so interesting. The most notable common denominator among them is their grief.
