So I finally read this since TS3 is out. I may be misremembering the previous Art Of books but there seems to be so much more text in this one. There's so many details about the development of the characters and story and it's really dang great! It's like being able to pick the brains of the Pixar crew and seeing how they're thinking and modifying the film to make it the best they can. I hope the Art Of series delves deeper into that kinda thing while still showcasing the amazing concept art. Image

I wish there had been an art of Toy Story 2 book, but that wouldn't have been possible given the shortened and madcap production schedule.

I still wonder what the original concept would have been there...as well as the original idea they held onto for TS3 until the story meeting in the cabin.

I love the fact that it details certain decisions, such as:

- Lasseter's choice of Unkrich to direct TS3 (the book gives a more detailed response than Unkrich probably could give me a month ago)

- [spoiler]Why Bo Peep was no longer with the group[/spoiler]
"Woody's no ordinary toy...he's brave. But the thing that makes Woody special, is that he'll never give up on you...ever."

Directly from the book:
[spoil]One character missing from the group is Bo Peep. "It was a tough decision, but it was very difficult for us to find a place for her in the story we're telling in Toy Story 3," explains Unkrich. "Bo Peep was created to get a female voice in the group of toys. In Toy Story, Andy shares his bedroom with Molly, and Bo Peep is a porcelain nursery lamp sitting next to her crib. She was not only a female character but also a love interest for Woody."

It had also been hard to find a place for Bo Peep in Toy Story 2, which is why she appears only at the beginning and end of the film. The filmmakers felt audiences wouldn't accept a porcelain lamp going off into the city and having an adventure. They even joked that she might roll herself in bubble wrap and FedEx herself to Al's apartment.

"It was really stretching believability for Bo Peep to still be a part of this world," Unkrich continues. "It made no sense for her to be in Andy's room. It made no sense for Molly to have her, because Molly's twelve now. But it also felt wrong not to have her in the movie, because she's one of the core characters. For me, the deal breaker was that I could not see a way to have Bo Peep be in the group of toys Andy hands off to Bonnie. I couldn't imagine Andy removing her from the box and having anything special to say about her: she's a lamp. We finally decided to make Bo Peep emblematic of how the room had changed and the sacrifices the toys had made along the way," he concludes. "We have a touching moment where Woody talks about the toys that have moved on. Rex brings up Bo Peep, and Woody has a little catch in his throat as he says that she's okay, she's with all the other toys that have gone on to new owners. It's clearly a loss for him. We explain why she's not there, but we struggled with it for a long time."[/spoil]

Sorry for the double post, but I found this interesting blog post from artist Nate Wragg on his work on TS3. It gives some more insight into some removed characters and the evolutions of their personality and design, and contains art that's not in the art book.

What I find interesting in there is the robot, since they already had one for Andy in the first two films. He also referred to Stretch as being a "he" even though they had her voiced by Whoopi Goldberg.

Wow. It's amazing that Sid originally wasn't the garbage guy. Wonder if Eric von Detten approached Pixar and the story team just gave him that role, or if the role was decided a bit later than the design was made.

Maybe Stretch is still a he even if Whoopi voices him/her, but I think he just distanced himself of the movie after his work was over (he still calls Bookworm "The Librarian", and doesn't know that Sid is the Garbage Man, among other things).

My wild, uninformed guess about the Metal-Head Garbage Man: [spoil]They started out with just an anonymous head-banging garbage man, then someone said, hey, wouldn't it be funny if it was SID!?[/spoil]

My wild, uninformed guess about Stretch: [spoil]When they were designing the octopus character, it was just generically designated a "he," then Whoopi was later cast as the voice. Because she's the voice, I presume Stretch is now a "she."[/spoil]

By the by, I got the Art of TS3 book this week, and really like it. I feel like it does have a lot of text and interesting info.

No, you are right. Stretch is a she.

I forgot she's referred as female in the official site description.
