With the amount of hoopla recently over the 3D double feature release of the first two Toy Story movies, you could be forgiven for forgetting that there’s a third one on the way. On that front, we’ve had a Toy Story 3 teaser that appeared back in May of this year, but now we finally get the full theatrical trailer for Toy Story 3, in all its beautifully animated glory!

Toy Story 3 picks up years after the second film, with Andy now grown up and about to move off to college. Obviously he’s too old for toys (something I think we can ALL identify with), and thus dumps his ‘ol friends Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Rex, Hamm, Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog and all the rest of his childhood play-things in a day-care center. Obviously the toys aren’t going to be too happy about that, and they try to escape.

It’s a great premise for the third installment in, dare I say, the best animated series of all time (is that too bold a statement to make?). Without further ado, thanks to Trailer Addict, take a look at the first full theatrical trailer for the wonderful looking Toy Story 3:

Just one of the many great things to look forward to about Toy Story 3 is getting to see again these great animated characters that for a slew of kids and adults alike, have almost become like friends in a way. It’s funny seeing Andy now all grown up after being used to him as a fairly young boy – as I said, he’s a character we can all relate to in terms of being grown up and moving on with your life, having to leave your childhood toys behind (a bed covered in toys doesn’t exactly say “cool” when you’re in college…).

Up until recently, Toy Story was the only series of Pixar films that they felt the need to continue the story on for (that was, until Cars 2 was announced, which is supposed to hit theaters in Summer 2011). And thankfully, the wizards at the leading animation studio in the business know that they shouldn’t just make a sequel unless there’s truly a good reason for doing so (they’ve said in the past that they’re not against sequels per se, they just don’t want to make them unless there’s a good story to back it up). On that note, it looks like they’ve managed to sustain the charm, humor and cross-generational appeal that the first two had in spades.

I’m always excited for the next offering from Pixar, but for Toy Story 3 I’m EXTRA excited for it. Summer 2010 can’t get here fast enough!

What do you think of the first theatrical trailer for Toy Story 3? Do you think it looks like they’ve carried on the quality from the first two movies?

Toy Story 3 is set to hit theaters on June 18th in the U.S., and on July 23rd in the UK, both in 2010.

  1. Leonardo, I’m with you 100%. I was 8 when the first movie came out. I firmly believe we are so lucky to have grown up on Pixar films; they reject the safe, unchallenging methods of typical modern family fare and instead harken back to old “Boys’ Own Adventure” stories. Name a Disney movie from the 70s or 80s with half the teeth of Incredibles or Ratatoullie.

  2. Speaking of which, when the hell are they going to listen to the fans and make an Incredibles 2?? Everytime Pixar is brought up, people talk about how they loved The Incredibles and would love to see a sequel, how come Pixar/Disney doesn’t seem to notice this?? I’ve been noticing that for years…

  3. Probably because Pixar don’t seem to do these things just for the hell of it, but usually do these things because they have a story. The Incredibles is Brad Bird’s baby, so I should think, unless he has a story to play with, they won’t force him into one (or do one without him).

    The Incredibles did kind of scream out for a sequel though.

  4. I had to watch this again. I saw The 3D double feature last night and it was a blast. It was the best experience I’ve had at a movie theater in a long long time. Pixar has definitely played their cards right with the marketing and hype for Toy Story 3. I was at Target today and they were stocked with Toy Story merch, plus they put in that new Toy Story ride at Disney World and Disney Land. Pixar is genius. Also seeing the first two again helped me notice things I’d never noticed before and the intermission/trivia in between really made it feel like everyone in the audience was friends and I think that’s what the third movie will do. Toy Story just makes people happy.

  5. after all these years the toys are still in good condition? he took care of his toys real good

  6. Maybe he had the “cleaner” from Toy Story 2 come over and buff them up. 8)


  7. Well, maybe that’s WHY they love being Andy’s toys?? lol

  8. this looks pretty tight and funny. i think it’ll be the best in the series.

  9. i am missus nesbit!

  10. LMAO! And he was all drunk from non-existing tea, lol!

    I just read from comingsoon that a guy named Blake Clark is doing the voice of Slinky Dog this time around.

  12. For those who used to watch Boy Meets World, Blake Clarke was Sean’s dad.

    An he does seem to have the right voice.


  14. Read some things about Blake Clark. . . if he’s the same person I’m thinking about, it’s the one coach that no one could understand in “The Waterboy” and the father for Drew Barrymore’s character in “50 First Dates,” and a whole bunch of other stuff in those Adam Sandler movies.

    As far as this trailer goes, the first half is amazing. It is quite astonishing what Pixar does with it’s movies. The films all seem to grow in some kind of emotional way, sparking tears and laughter along the way. “Wall*E” and “Up” are probably the best of the Pixar movies ever, and if they can carry that momentum over to this, I have no doubts that “Toy Story 3″ could be one of the best films of all time, let alone animated.

  15. My pick for Pixar’s best would be The Incredibles and Up, Wall-E was too boring and the ending was pretty dumb in my opinion… Just my opinion. Toy Story 1 and 2 were both great. I liked 2 more than 1 though.

  16. The trailer certainly looks good up to a point. That point being where Buzz gets ‘stuck on the Spanish setting’, simply because that idea looks remarkably similar to a plot point used in the popular machinima series ‘Red vs. Blue’ created by RoosterTeeth years ago. It’s an interesting coincidence, if you want to call it that.

  17. What about Austin Powers when he presses the SAP button on a remote control toward a fembot?

    Whatever, I’m sure every joke has had something similar at some point in the past…
