Toy Story 3 confirmed!

02.09.2007

Confirming what we pretty much already assumed, Pixar confirmed yesterday that TOY STORY 3 would be their 2009 film following RATATOUILLE and WALL-E. John Lasseter, who directed the previous two films, will not return to direct the third installment and will hand the reins over to Lee Unkrich who co-directed TOY STORY 2. Lasseter said "the greatest thing" about reteaming with Disney was putting a stop to the TOY STORY 3 Disney was working on separate of Pixar and now being able to do it "with the story they wanted." That means the old premise of Buzz being sent to Taiwan after a toy recall will be scrapped while Michael Arndt (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE) works on a new script. In the same conference Lasseter reported that Chris Williams will take over for Chris Sanders as director of AMERICAN DOG, Disney's 2008 pic. He also denied rumors that Disney would return to solely 2-D animation while Pixar would handle all CGI animation. It certainly seems like Lasseter and his Pixar crew are coming in and cleaning up what was a mess of a Disney studio. What do you think would make a good premise for a third TOY STORY movie?

Judgevik, that is the idea they just scrapped. What are you? Disabled?

A better idea is that a terrorist takes Buzz and rewires him to become a walking bomb! They give him to the President's daughter. And the "gang" have to decide to destroy him before he blows up the white house. Now thats a flucking movie!!!

Seriously tho. Excited by anything pixar does. They r gold. GOLD!!!

John Lasseter is in some ways the best thing to happen to Disney, since Walt himself.

So far, PIxar has done no wrong and Toy Story is one of my favorite animated/Disney movies of all time. And i was impressed with the quality of TS2, so i will be very hyped for this thrid story.

Toy Story 2 is one of the most succesful sequels, in terms of execution, in my opinion. As for a third I have a lot of faith in whatever pixar has in store.

my idea

i had an idea a few years ago after watching TS2, about Buzz and all the toys being boxed and stored in the attic after Andy grows up and leaves home.

they sit there for years and years, and are finally discovered by a little boy who goes exploring after his family moves into the house. the boy doesn't have any friends because he is new in town, and so views Buzz and Woody and the rest as his best friends.

the toys feel badly for him and decide to reveal to him their conscious sides in

okay, it's not the most extensive plot outline. i just always thought that would be a great way to start a 3rd movie.

Trade Show

I would like to see Buzz and Woody (still in the kid's possession) as part of a display at a comic book or sci-fi type convention. The sheer number of inside jokes that can be used are insurmountable. Perhaps, the conflict of the film will be between Buzz, Woody and other "classic" toys and the more modern ones.

Awesome news.

The whole recall plot would've been pretty much the same premise as Toy Story 2, except "Let's rescue Buzz!" instead of "Let's rescue Woody!" Even though it would be ridiculously sad, I hope they follow the plot line Lasseter hinted at in the other TS DVDs: What happens when Andy grows up. Also, the "Claw" aliens should take over the world.

And I'm really curious as to what happened with American Dog. The preproduction artwork that was released looked pretty cool and considering Sanders made

Recall seemed ok

Love that Toy Story 3 will be made, but I'm not sure there wasn't already a nugget of goodness in that previous script. You have to make some sort of tension/problem to overcome for a story to be told, and a "toy recall" seems quite appropriate when the main characters are toys.
