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

where does he get those wonderful toys

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]

Dammit Jim!

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

Cautiously Optimistic

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

Real Or Not Real?

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

Together At Last

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

It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

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

Watch the Cast of Toy Story 3 Talk the Talk

where does he get those wonderful toys

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. (via Mental Floss)

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

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.

Concept Art From Pixar’s Scrapped Project: Newt

Pixar's next planned project after Toy Story 3 was Newt, but the project was recently scrapped, due to story concerns. From Bleeding Cool:
Gary Rydstrom was a sound designer at Pixar who made the move into directing with the short film Lifted. His first feature film was set to be Newt, a romantic comedy about the last two blue-footed newts on the planet, expected to mate but finding that they hate each other. Sadly, it seems that he could never quite get the story working, and the film was officially canceled earlier this year.
Yesterday, Pixar released thirty pieces of Newt concept art on its Facebook page. We've posted our favorites below.

Toy Story 3 Flashmob: Probably the Most Endearing Marketing Effort You’ll See Today

These squeeze-toy-alien-headed dancers were part of a clearly rehearsed but well meaning flash mob that materialized at some point during the opening day of E3 to publicize Toy Story 3: The Video Game. Why did we not hear about this until now? Allow Kotaku to explain:

Opening day? Let's see, that puts me at the Sony press conference, cursing at the internet and tapping away at my netbook's tiny keyboard. Not a fair trade, methinks.

Quiz: Toy Story 3 Review, or Jonah Hex Review?

Depending on whether or not you're a calendar purist, this coming weekend is either the first weekend of summer movies or merely the weekend right before the summer truly begins; either way, there are two big releases coming up in the forms of Toy Story 3 and Jonah Hex.

The two aren't exactly in direct competition -- most young children wouldn't be able to handle the sight of Jonah Hex/Josh Brolin's facial scar, much less Megan Fox's acting -- but the gulf between the two movies in terms of the reviews they're getting is shaping up to be an event unto itself: In short, Toy Story 3 has been getting great reviews, and Jonah Hex has been getting reviews so awful, we wonder if it's the next horrible cult movie in the making.

First Trailer Drops for Third Chronicles of Narnia Movie

While it wasn't expected to drop until the premiere of Toy Story 3 this Friday, Brazilian Narnia fansite Mundo Narnia has gotten ahold of the first-yet trailer for the third Chronicles of Narnia movie, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and thanks to their bountifulness we are all able to partake.

The Michael Apted-directed film premieres in the US on December 10, 2010; if you're looking for a way to prepare, do snag or borrow a copy of the BBC miniseries.

Toy Story 3: Inception [Trailer Mashup]

When the LA Times wrote the first in-depth piece about Inception, which they called an "existential heist flick," we were relieved to read it -- both because we're big Christopher Nolan fans, thanks in no small part to his great job on rebooting Batman, and because, well, we didn't really know what it was all about.

Right when we thought we'd wrapped our heads around it, the devious video editor at ScreenRant, Mike Eisenberg, just had to throw our heads for a loop. Thanks to an uncannily well-done overdub of the audio from the Inception trailer over the trailer for Toy Story 3, we, like Leonardo DiCaprio -- or is that Woody? -- can no longer tell fact from fiction.

Totoro Cameo in Toy Story 3

Your eyes do not deceive you, that is a Totoro plush in the trailer for Toy Story 3. This is less surprising when you remember that the people at Pixar are, after all, animators, and My Neighbor Totoro is, after all, one of Hayao Miyazaki's most beloved films. This writer really wishes she had watched it by now. I'm sorry, I'm sorrry! I'm waiting for Netflix to come out on the Wii! I have seen the episode of Samurai Jack with Totoro. Forgive me.
