Toy Story 3 Movie

The Toy Story saga continues with another blockbuster movie, Toy Story 3. Surpassing Shrek the Third as the biggest grossing movie for a single day in North America, this third Toy Story installment is a frolicking good film filled with adventure, fun, a villain or two, and lots of friendship. 

In Toy Story 3, Andy is now 17 and set to head for his first year at college, and his is beloved toys end up being sent to a daycare center. That's where the trouble begins. Some new characters are introduced, adding their own personalities and agendas to the action, and as Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the gang try to make their way home, chaos erupts. 

Each Toy Story movie has had its own distinct plot line, and this new movie is no different. Still, the characters are familiar, bringing plenty of continuity to the series, even as new humans and toys are introduced.

The animation is spectacular, as is the cast of stars who give voice to each character. Tom Hanks heads the line up as Woody. Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Ned Beatty, Don Rickles, Michael Keaton and Estelle Harris are also included, along with several other well-known actors. 

Film critics love Toy Story 3 as much as moviegoers. Of over 200 critical reviews of the movie, the average rating is 8.8 out of 10. That's astounding for a digitally animated children's movie! 

There are several reasons why this movie is such a huge popular and critical success. The combination of Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures is a winning one. The animation is top rate, of course. The script is excellent with character development, humorous and entertaining dialogue, and plot twists to keep viewers on their toes. This movie's been called exciting, clever, scary and sentimental, and dazzling.  And it has a rating of G, so it's absolutely perfect for the entire family. 

Another reason for the success of Toy Story 3 is that it's just plain fun to watch. If there is a movie that is good, fun, happy entertainment out there, it's this one. And people will watch movies like this over and over. Kids will happily watch this kind of movie again and again. There is always something new to see, or another piece of previously missed dialogue to discover and memorize. At 102 minutes, it's a good length - not too long and not too short. 

Many adult viewers have expressed that of the three movies in the Toy Story trilogy, this is the best. While all the movies are excellent, the animation has improved with new technology and the third installment brings the entire story of these wonderful toys full circle.  It has been called “powerful” for bringing to a close a movie trilogy and repeating the valuable themes of friendship, loyalty, love and growth. 

If you know a child, or even an adult, who loves animated films and loved the first two Toy Story movies, this would make a perfect birthday or holiday gift. If you're a Toy Story fan yourself, you will want to have your own copy to watch with friends and family. 

Toy Story 3 is now available for pre-order or purchase in a Blu-ray/DVD combo. With the holiday season just around the corner, this could be the best give ever! Make Toy Story 3 your own, or give it to your favorite animated movie and Toy Story fan.
