You may remember that back in March, the lovely people from Walt Disney Pictures invited over to San Francisco to not only meet those involved in making their latest movie, Toy Story 3, but also to see it along with a select group of other bloggers and YouTubers from around the world! While we were there, we also go to meet the archivists who showed us loads of concept images from Toy Story 3. I have decided that today and tomorrow are the days I have chosen to share them them all with you.

Toy Story 3 is released in US cinemas this weekend and I thought now would be the best time to show you some of the images that were drawn well before the movie was put into it’s now digital state. You’ll notice that some of the images have been signed and dated around December 2008 so you can really see how long ago they are drawn. Just think what’s being created in Pixar Animation Studios right now for two years time!

One thing I would say is that if you know nothing about Toy Story 3 and want to remain that way, then you probably don’t want to look at these images as there are a few things that you’ll get out of them that you may not have known before unless you’ve seen the latest trailers and featurettes and then I think it’s pretty clear.

Here in the UK, we don’t get Toy Story 3 until 19th July but I can tell you now that you’re going to absolutely love it. It’s directed by Lee Unkrich, produced by Darla K. Anderson and has a voice cast which includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Estelle Harris, John Morris, Laurie Metcalf, R. Lee Ermey, Jodi Benson, Ned Beatty, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Whoopi Goldberg and Michael Keaton.

Toy Story 3 is released in UK Cinemas July 19th so a while to wait but you can enter our competition to win tickets to see it this Sunday here!

    You guys were NOT supposed to take photos on the second floor. Have you checked with Pixar to make sure this is okay? I will be making them aware of this today.

  • I did and made sure we were ok to take photos in the archive room at the time too. All was cleared.
