Toy Story 3 is released tomorrow in the U.S - and in July in Europe - and i had the pleasure to watch it last afternoon at Paris press screening. As i don't want to spoil the story-line i'll say just this: you will love it! Probably as much as i did as once again Pixar Animation Studios created a perfect movie.
Once again too the story-line is incredibly well written. You know this when you think back to the movie and search for a scene that could be wrong, and there is no one scene that i will delete as all scenes have a perfect reason to exist. The great thing is that when you think the characters will find a "way out" (in what's happening to them) there is always a new twist in the story. As i've said, the script is so well written that it's pretty hard to guess what will happen then.
It's the same with some of the new toys characters - who is good, who is a "villain"? lot of surprises that i didn't expect and that's a good point, really. It's also a movie full of nostalgia - what's happening to a young boy toys when he's not anymore in age to play with them? - and you'll have scenes with great emotion.
No need to say that the animation by Pixar animators is unbelievably perfect. The last scene is incredibly poetic. There is no doubt that Toy Story 3 is going to be highly successful at the B.O and undoubtedly one of the best film released this summer. One last word about 3D: all i can say is that you better don't expect 3D pop-up effects as there is none. The use of 3D is mostly to give depth and it was probably even more obvious in UP! than in TS3. So if you can't see it in 3D you won't lose a lot. Anyway, just let me know after you saw it but once again, whether you'll see it in 3D or 2D i'm sure you will love it!
I forgot to talk about Day and Night the short animated that you'll se before the movie. Well, Pixar did it again, Day and Night is a charming, funny, and perfectly animated short and it's probably the first short animated to have 2D AND 3D animation on the same image! You'll love it too!
For those of my readers who still have to wait for its release in their country here is a new movie clip which was released two days ago, showing the "escape" of Woody.
This other video is a best-of of five previously released clips.
There was also a L.A Premiere and here is the video showing Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and John Lasseter interviewed on the red carpet.
