I don't think there's a thread set up for journal articles on TS3, so here I go. Maybe another one for 'Reviews' can be set up upon its release. Maybe mods could consider a sticky? :)

Sydneysider Pixar fans might want to get their hands on a copy of today's Daily Telegraph. The brand new poster of TS3 has made the front cover of the 'Hit' movie section. TS3 was also highlighted for the month of June, with good ol' Lotso and Buzz taking centre stage. Thank goodness they didn't feature Shrek 4 instead!



Very awesome, I thought they were going to have Gyllenhaal or Jolie on the cover instead, so to have an animated film featured instead shows Pixar can stand amongst the big-boys tentpole flicks. :)

Very awesome article there, thedriveintheatre. I'm glad they included a picture that features pretty much every toy in Toy Story 3 it seems.

And I'll sticky this thread for you as well as starting a couple of reviews threads.

Here's the article online if you don't want to buy the magazine. ;)

Animating a Blockbuster: How Pixar Built Toy Story 3

Also from the same magazine, is '10 Things Parent Should Know About Toy Story 3'. It basically reads like a giant plug for Pixar, but who's complaining? Read Question 5 for the writer's interesting opinions on other upcoming family movies...

What paper did you get it from TDIT?, in my local Hereld Sun they had like another article but not from like a entertainment paper.

It was in the Thursday entertainment section called 'Hit.' from The Daily Telegraph, a Sydney-based tabloid. I can't seem to find the original article now, but it was about a month ago (Good thing I photographed it for posterity!). Do you live in Sydney gleefan1?


There was an article in the Sydney Morning Herald on Thursday which was reprinted from the Telegraph, London, about how Toy Story 3 is making grown men cry. Yes, you heard me. Cartoons make adult males weep! Who woulda thought that? :roll:

Why Buzz Lightyear and Woody are a ticket to tears

And on that bombshell, it's time to say: "Good night, everyone!"

Here's another one with Darla Anderson in Japan.

Life choices at heart of latest 'Toy Story'
Atsuko Matsumoto / Daily Yomiuri Staff Writer

Nothing remains the same. For good or bad, life is full of changes you can't avoid. This truth is at the heart of the much-anticipated Toy Story 3.

"In life, we all have to experience change--it's inevitable. We move on, and sometimes relationships move on and we do different things in our lives," Toy Story 3 producer Darla Anderson said in an interview with The Daily Yomiuri on her recent promotional visit to Tokyo.

Back in 1995, Toy Story made its mark as Hollywood's first feature-length computer-animated movie. But what made it last was its story, which was populated with lovable characters that attracted audiences across all age groups.

Fifteen years since its release and 11 years since its sequel, the third installment has finally arrived. Andy, now college age, no longer plays with his once favorite toys. The fate of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the others looks gloomy.

"I like things too much. So I can become very attached to all the items in my collection, so it's always hard for me to let them go," Anderson said.

"At the end of the day, they're still just things...if you're not using them anymore, I think it's a beautiful thing to pass them on to children who are really going to play with them," she added.

Anderson has steadily built her career through involvement in the production of such classics as Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. (2001) and Cars (2006). But her experience didn't make Toy Story 3 any less stressful.

"The hardest part was not getting too intimidated with the idea that Toy Story and Toy Story 2 were such good movies. For a while there, we were just so worried that we wouldn't make a film that was good enough to stand alongside those two films because they're both such good films and because they were so beloved," the producer said.

In addition to the familiar faces, Toy Story 3 introduces a key new character, Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear. But the evil bear and his relentlessly bad attitude may confuse the younger and more innocent members of the audience.

"From my point of view, I think that it's interesting to see that that's a choice. making a choice [about] what to do now that Andy's grown up. He could make the choice to feel bitter and abandoned because Andy is, in essence, leaving him because he's becoming an adult," Anderson said.

"So alongside that, we have the throughline of Lots-O's story, where he got abandoned--not because his kid was a bad kid, but by accident--and his choice was to become bitter and hardened by that. As a storytelling device, it's interesting to have a thread of a kind of alternate universe of choices you can make in life," she added.

In the movie, which Anderson described as "kind of coming home again," John Morris, 23, who did Andy's voiceover in Toy Story and Toy Story 2, again played the now young man.

While it may be a sad thought that things may inevitably change, it could also mean Andy someday may have his own family with a child who will play with Woody and Buzz.

"I really don't know if there's gonna be a Toy Story 4. We just finished this movie literally four weeks ago. So, when we were making this movie, we were thinking of completing it [the series]. That was what was in our minds, the filmmakers' minds for this film," Anderson said.

"But you know, never say never, and it seems like people really like these characters, so who knows?"

The movie opens Saturday.

The Daily Mail's review came out today, and it gave Toy Story 3 five stars! The reviewer is known for being tough, so that's pretty amazing. I'm happy to type up the review later on, though it does seem to have a few spoilers so I haven't read right through it yet.
