Animation historian and The Art of Toy Story 3 author, Charles Solomon, discusses the success of Pixar’s latest in an interview with LA Times.
"I still cried when I saw the finished film" commented Solomon who had already been exposed to the content during production. That’s a testament to how effective Toy Story 3 has been on everyone.
As with most successful films, the highly anticipated sequel owes its immense box-office take and excellent critical reception to years of hard work by a dedicated team of visionaries. It also helps that Lee Unkrich embraced the nostalgia factor, making Toy Story 3 "the way John Lasseter would have made the first one look if he’d had the tools."
