The lovely people from Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios invited me over to San Francisco to not only meet those involved in making their latest movie, Toy Story 3, but also to see it! While there, myself and a few other bloggers and YuoTubers also got to meet the archivists who showed us loads of concept images from Toy Story 3 and let us take photos and video (which you’ll see in future posts) of it all.
Toy Story 3 is released in US cinemas this comiong 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 yuo 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!
