Woody himself, Tom Hanks, updated Empire on his upcoming Pixar film Toy Story 3 and other projects he’s working on!
Here’s what he said to the magazine about the highly anticipated sequel:
"They did an interesting thing on this one. They did not send us a script. They showed us a complete story reel of the entire movie, with storyboards moving from one to the next, and the people up at Pixar recorded some voices with some music and sound effects. Tim Allen and John Ratzenberger and I went in a movie theatre, watched the reel and said, ‘This is great, let’s get to work!’"
So he watched the movie first with temp tracks, and loved it! Great to hear Woody… I mean Mr. Hanks. If you’d like to read more on Tom Hanks and his interview with Empire, you can purchase the magazine’s 20th anniversary issue.

Update: Variety also talked to Tom Hanks about his future projects including Toy Story 3. here’s what he had to say:
"Being in the hands of the people at Pixar, it’s like getting into the JPL. You’re with folks who invented the art form… It’s like I’ve been invited to a great party for a third time. It’s hard work… It’s not easy to do. But it’s always convivial and very, very rewarding. We wouldn’t be doing this if there wasn’t a story where it’s like, ‘How do you guys come up with this?’"

Great to hear from yet another reputable person that we have a strong story coming up next year for part three! Toy Story 3 is coming to theatres June 18th, 2010 and the 3D trailer premiere will be attached to the Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3D Double Feature on October 2nd.Last modified: April 23, 2009
