Toy Story meets The Shining is an incredible thing

There are some people out there who like to bring their own twist to TOY STORY. Sure, it's easy to take something so innocent and turn it on its head. But what if you do it so damn good it doesn't matter if it shatters what you once knew? That's how I feel about "Toy Shining".

To be honest, I will never see Woody and the gang the same way again. The incredibly cool, Kyle Lambert decided to honor director of TOY STORY 3, Lee Unkrich with a mashup of TOY STORY and THE SHINING. Lambert explains everything below:

Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.

It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had sketched each composition I set about painting the panels with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard.

Coincidently, towards the end of the project I was invited to visit the Pixar Studio for the day by one of their artists Don Shank and thought it would be a great opportunity to deliver a printed version of the project to Lee in person. Unfortunately he wasn't at the studio that day, but has since received the poster, Tweeting..

Yes.

You know that article just posted - 10 horror remakes no one wants? Take the shining off that list - but only if it's with toy story characters. I would pay to see this.

I like this crossover...

"Rancher, are ya, Mr. Woody?"
"You, uh, took an axe and chopped Bullseye up into little bits...I don't recollect that at all."
"You're the toy, Andy. You've always been the toy."
"Your money's no good here, Mr. Hamm."
"All Zurg and no play make Buzz a dull boy."
...and the obvious...
"Come play with us, Andy...forever and ever and ever..."

This would make a great movie

I would definitely line up to see Woody flip his lid.
