Toy Story 3 - The Toys Are Certainly Back!

When I heard that Pixar and Disney were adding a new volume to the Toy Story saga I wasn't overly excited. I thought the days of Woody and Buzz Lightyear were numbered and that newer and better things had come along since then. Boy was I wrong...

The magic of Pixar becomes evident right from the previews where a short animated film called Day & Night is featured. The message behind Day & Night is that we always fear those who are different from us. This may be a simple lesson but it is nonetheless an extremely true and often forgotten one. You must watch this short film to appreciate the true beauty behind it. It is amazing!

In Toy Story 3, all the classic characters are back only to find that Andy, the boy they always loved and admired, is all grown up and ready to go to college. The toys are scared of being abandoned by Andy and for that reason they embark on a crazy adventure that will have you laughing, shouting, holding on to your seat and crying... yes... I said it... I went to watch the movie with my best male friend and we both had tears running down our face by the end of the movie. I don't mean to be an extremist but Toy Story 3 is one of the best movies I have ever seen - and no... I'm not only talking about animated or 3-D movies.

A few new characters are also introduced in this new adventure. Amongst them are Ken and Barbie, who quickly became two of my personal favourites (no one beats the alien triplets though!). Their bubbly and over the top ditzy personality and romance is hysterical. I must say that I still can't be certain that Ken is attracted to Barbie because of her body and personality... I think it may have more to do with her clothes *hint hint* :)

I hope you have watched the previous Toy Story movies by now, but if you haven't... go get a copy of them here:

And don't forget to watch the newest one! You won't regret it!
