Our First Look At The New Toy Story Short Featuring Jessie!

We were excited to hear Toy Story was getting a Halloween Special but we finally have a few more details as well as this first image. The half-hour short is set to air on ABC and is called Toy Story of TerrorTV Guide reports:

[It] follows the adventures of the toys post-Toy Story 3, in which a fun road trip takes a very unexpected turn. “Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom and the toys are in the trunk,” producer Galyn Susman says. “Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel and all kinds of chaos ensues.”While Terror will include Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles) and Rex (Wallace Shawn), Jessie (Joan Cusack) will have a more prominent role in the special. “We’ve gotten to see a lot of development in Woody and in Buzz and we felt it was Jesse’s turn to really show some growth.” Susman says.

About time, I’d say. Look for the special this October.

Man, Toy Story 3 Just Got Really Intense. [VIDEO]

I know that movie trailer mashups are a dime a dozen, but this a really good one. Just trust me, OK? No? I should provide some sort of convincing argument as to why you should watch the audio from the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer with clips from Toy Story 3? How ’bout this: The CumberVillain as a pink teddy bear. If that doesn’t get you then I don’t know what will.

Looks Like The Next Star Wars Film Has A Writer

Lots of rumors have been thrown around as to who might be involved with a Disney produced Star Wars VII but it looks like one might finally be legit. Academy Award-winning writer of Little Miss Sunshine, and screenwriter of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Toy Story 3, Michael Arndt, is already working on a script.

Catching Fire Script Getting A Rewrite From Toy Story 3 & Little Miss Sunshine Screenwriter

Last week, Lionsgate made their official announcement stating that director Francis Lawrence would be taking over from Gary Ross on the Hunger Games movie franchise. But an interesting development happened this weekend. It seems the studio is looking for rewrites on the script for Catching Fire and has chosen Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt for the job.

The Mashup You Never Knew You Wanted: Toy Story and The Shining

I’ll bet you had no idea that a new iPad came out today. That was sarcasm. It’s probably really fancy, or has an added feature that doesn’t make sense. But some people can think of wonderful things to do with their iPad, and Kyle Lambert is one of those people. He’s created a series of “paintings,” made on his iPad, that are a mashup of Toy Story and — you probably didn’t guess it — The Shining. After the jump, see more of his paintings and read about the actual Shining reference made in Toy Story.

The Guy Who Made Us Cry Throughout Toy Story 3 Will Take on Phineas and Ferb

Remember when Toy Story 3 came out and every adult you knew was like, “I cried through the whole thing! It was so good!” Well, the guy who caused everyone to have all the feelings in the world, screenwriter Mike Arndt, will now be taking a pass at the upcoming Phineas and Ferb movie for Disney. It’s hard to imagine Phineas and Ferb taking such an emotional toll on everyone, but Arndt’s good track record on comedy — he won an Oscar for writing Little Miss Sunshine — will probably make for a really smart script. Because if you haven’t seen the Phineas and Ferb cartoon, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Why They Shouldn’t Put Pixar Characters in Kingdom Hearts

Because I would just cry and cry the whole time. I mean, jeez, the Pooh intro scene in the first game was bad enough.

Watch the Cast of Toy Story 3 Talk the Talk

Tom Hanks. Joan Cusack. Wallace Shawn. Michael Keaton. Don Rickles. Toy Story 3 was filled to the brim with A-listers (and I didn’t even list half, and didn’t even mention Kristin Schaal). You all know; you all saw it and you all cried. Now take a look behind the scenes and watch as some of the voice talents put their all into their characters and record their parts. My favorite would have to be watching Betelgeuse Michael Keaton voicing Ken. He seems so all-American when he’s not botching bio-exorcisms. To watch the first part of the behind the scenes footage, go here.

The Best Toy Story 3/Braveheart Mashup You Will See Today [Video]

At least we know that Woody and Company had a much happier fate than William Wallace. Though it’s not out of the question that Mr. Potato Head ended up in pieces in the four corners of his new home.

The 83rd Academy Awards: Kinda Meh

The challenge for every blogger covering the Academy Awards this year seems to be to make a reasonably interesting-sized molehill out of a regular molehill. No one movie won more than four awards, there weren’t any breakout surprises, and the most shocking thing about the broadcast seems to be that Melissa Leo used the f-word. Come on.  Last year Ben Stiller showed up in a Na’vi costume.

And unlike last year, the number of really beloved genre films treated to nominations was slim. Inception, the tent pole movie of many a geek’s 2010 summer managed to pull only half of the awards it was nominated for, and half of those wins were Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, the two Oscar categories that no one can ever remember the difference between.

Yes, yes, unless you’re in film school.
