Toy Story 3 Buzz Soars

It should come as no surprise to moviegoers that Pixar’s upcoming Toy Story 3 is getting some great early reviews. A recent ShoWest screening of the uncompleted third installment has bloggers and critics in awe yet again by Pixar. Not only does the studio have a tremendous task in topping the first two Toy Story films, but also following Up, their first Best Picture nomination.

A handful of reliable bloggers have seen the latest cut at ShoWest in Las Vegas, and the buzz is reaching light years into space (sorry, I had to do it). Not to mention the entire screening was in 2D, which is an odd thing to complain about. But considering Pixar’s skill at 3D animation, it can only get better.

From Hollywood Insider:

“Not only do the latest adventures of Buzz Lightyear and Cowboy Woody maintain the high quality that we’re used to seeing with Pixar movies, but this one is also exceptionally emotional. I was surrounded by a group of adults and there were many tears shed throughout the film.”

From Latino Review:

“The funniest scenes were between Ken and Barbie. Michael Keaton was hilarious as Ken and his relationship with Barbie was just like you thought it would be. And if you enjoyed the opening outer space scene in Toy Story 2, the opening scene with Woody, Buzz and the gang blows it away.”

From Jim Hill:

“…you should bring Kleenex. Lots & lots of Kleenex. Because I can guarantee you that you’re going to spend a good portion of the last 30 minutes of this film in tears.”

In addition to the bloggers, Pixar’s animators are just as thrilled. You would be hard pressed to find many on the staff of any movie bad-mouthing, but they don’t exactly have to share their thoughts. Warren Trezevant recently visited Flashpoint Academy in Chicago and told students everybody is teeming with excitement and eager to share it with the world.

Assuming all the word of mouth is correct, I can’t think of any trilogies with more consistency than Toy Story. I’ll let you be the judge of that comment, but how anxious are you to see this film? I know I’ll be watching the first two right before my midnight viewing. Toy Story 3 opens in IMAX 3D on June 18th.

  1. I've got Toy Story 1 & 2 blu-rays pre-ordered, and can't wait to take my kids to see this one. My only concern is this will be their first time in the theatre, and we might be setting the bar a little high for future outings!

  2. LOTR is the only other one I can think of.

  3. Love this article. I am glad to hear that the movie is living up to the others. By far my most anticipated of the year

    My vote would be the Evil Dead series. Hard not to love all 3.

  4. Lord of the Rings might be the only other.

  5. Thanks Viking, it's great news right? And just what I expected to hear. They are setting their bar incredibly higher every year

  6. OMG! I cant wait for the release of this movie! I will be there that opening weekend to watch it in 3D, not caring about the cost for the first time in my life. I grew up on Disney, and Toy Story is one of the first movies I watched and fell in love with. The part in the article that concerns me is the last 30 minutes that will make you tear. I hope its not a sad ending. But I guess Pixar is trying to be realistic about things, what grown man is going to keep all his childhood toys? That is rare. Hope its a happy ending! I love Toy Story and I can not wait!! :D

  7. YES!!!!!! With the upcoming lack luster Summer of film, ( after May) this is one that is a must see. Thank you for a great article to enjoy!

  8. I'm watching this alone… And with a disguise, that way (hopefully) no one recognizes the grownup quietly crying lol.

  9. I haven't seen anything yet as far as previews, but I can tell you I will be following the advice of such bloggers ! I can't wait to walk into the theater with my box o' cleenex!

  10. There's no doubt in my mind that after this film, Toy Story will be my favorite movie trilogy, due to the consistent level of quality in the films. I can hardly wait to see this in theaters.
