Fans wait in anticipation for Toy Story 3

Every year a big blockbuster hits our cinema screens. This summer is no different as the Toy Story saga returns for its third outing and it’s set to be bigger and better than ever. Toy Story 3 follows in the footsteps of other recent cinema favourites and will be shown in 3-D, which is set to give audiences a whole new angle from which to see the toys and their environment. This will help to make the film, which is made using CGI, look better than ever.

When Toy Story first hit our cinema screens back in 1995 it was the aesthetics of the movie that initially won praise. The production was the first feature length to be produced using solely CGI and as with all animated films, audiences appreciated the amount of time and effort that went into making it look as good as it did. The environment in which the film was set, Andy’s bedroom and the surrounding neighbourhood, looked very realistic and allowed the toys to really come to life.

As with most films, a lot of people put hard work in to produce the final result, with John Lasseter one of the main animators behind the idea and the final film. Lasseter has been working in animation since the 1980s, but it was the original Toy Story that first brought him to prominence. Since then he has gone on to work on the two sequels, as well as being the executive producer for further family favourites including Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Up.

It wasn’t just the imagery that impressed audiences, but the plots were really gripping and people enjoyed the stories that were being told. Never before had people seen toys come to life so vividly, and audiences immediately identified with Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Alongside other characters such as Mr Potato Head, Rex and Slinky Dog, camaraderie was quickly built up between the toys that made it easy for audiences to side with them in the film.

Toy Story 3 will once again see Woody, a cowboy, and Buzz, a space ranger, at the centre of the action as they try to get themselves out of another difficult situation. Audiences will recognise the majority of the characters, but as with the two previous films, we will once again be introduced to many more toys. We first came across Jessie and Bullseye in Toy Story 2 and they’ll also return for the franchise’s third outing alongside more than 150 new characters.

Due for release on July 21st in cinemas up and down the country, audiences have had to wait more than ten years since Toy Story 2 to see Andy’s toys in action yet again. Set a decade after the events of the second film, Andy is now heading to college and the action is based around the theme of what happens to toys when children grow up. No doubt Woody, Buzz and co will find themselves in some tricky situations, and audiences will have their eyes glued to the 3D images to see how the toys get themselves out of them for a third time.
