Disney and Pixar Studios reopen the toy box for a new exciting adventure of characters from the well-known Toy Story animation movie. This time, Buzz, Woody and the whole gang have to face a totally different issue. Their master, Andy, goes to college, and the toys wake up in a nursery full of babies and young children who can hardly wait to put their hands on new merchandise to break it, dirty it, and make it as it pleases.
Both adults and children will enjoy a fresh and savvy comedy based on a script written by Michael Arndt, an Oscar winner for the Little Miss Sunshine movie screenplay. Director of the film, Lee Unkrich, was part of the teams that made the well-known animation films “Finding Nemo” (Oscar winner) and “Monsters Inc.”.
In the original version, a whole host of Hollywood stars give voice to Toy Story 3 characters, including Tom Hanks (Woody), Tim Allen (Buzz), Joan Cusack (Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl), Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin Whoopi Goldberg (Caracatita Stretch).
The first feature of the Toy Story series was released in 1995, being also the first full-featured cartoon on the computer. The success of the film was so great that it ranked first in that year in terms of revenue, with $ 192 million in the US and over $ 362 million worldwide. Toy Story has been nominated for three Academy Awards and two Golden Globes.
In 1999 followed Toy Story 2, the first film to be created and digitally designed in its entirety. Toy Story 2 has also set a record for the release year, being the first sequel to an animated movie that surpassed the original film. And the second part of the story was nominated for Oscar and Golden Globe, winning the Golden Globe for Best Comedy / Musical. The soundtrack also gave Randy Newman a Grammy Award for the Best Writing for a Movie.
