Mattel brings Pixar’s Toy Story Space Mission To Infinity and Beyond

Mattel brings Pixar's Toy Story Space Mission To Infinity and Beyond

It’s been just a little over a year since Disney and Pixar brought the Toy Story franchise full circle, from Andy to Bonnie, with last summer’s Toy Story 3. However, even with the film’s bittersweet closure, fans have been wondering (Buzz-ing, even) about a fourth sequel since the credits rolled on the third film. And while Mattel isn’t exactly stepping forth to announce Toy Story 4, they did something almost as cool; animating a Toy Story short film using the actual Toy Story toys! The entire spot was created using toys from a new line, Toy Story: Space Mission, during a 4 week toymation filming session, where each character is all geared up in special outfits. Take a look at the animated short, as well as shots of the toy line!

Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story Small Fry joins Jim Henson’s The Muppets

Disney and Pixar's Toy Story Small Fry joins Jim Henson's The Muppets

On November 23rd, the Muppets will finally make their return to the big screen, ready to impress the legions of old fans and a world of new ones. The Disney mascots wont be traveling alone, however, as the film will be joined by a brand new Toy Story short, entitled Small Fry. When Cars 2 hit theaters a few months back, movie goers were also greeted with a short from the Toy Story universe, and the appearance of another has us hoping Pixar really could do a Toy Story 4 someday. But, more importantly, getting proper placement with the Muppets is quite an honor. The recent D23 Expo 2011 not only made special mention of this pairing, but also offered a beautiful tribute to Jim Henson, as Rowlf and Kermit paired to sing the famed Rainbow Connection. Check out the video.

Disney’s D23 Expo 2011 teases The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs

Disney's D23 Expo 2011 teases The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs

When we’re done with Monsters, we’ll get Dinosaurs; so says Pixar at Disney’s D23 Expo 2011. This weekend, the company unveiled two new films with vague bits of teaser information, both scheduled to hit big screen after the Monsters Inc prequel, Monsters University, which hits on June 21st, 2013. The first of the two, set to be in theaters on November 27th, 2013, will focus on Dinosaurs, and was given the comically pleasing working title of The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs. The premise, according to director Bob Peterson (who also voiced Roz from Monster’s, Inc. and UP’s dog, Dug) asks what would happen if dinosaurs never went extinct? Unfortunately for Toy Story’s Rex, the concept seems to spread past his short reach. Unfortunately, not much more is known at this time, other than the glimpses of the sneak peeks, which feature a boy, a large brontosaurus, a pterodactyl, some mosquitoes, and more. What do you think the film will be about?

Pixar and Disney's Toy Story 3 wins Best Licensed Program

Every year, the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association (LIMA) gathers at the Licensing International Expo. That’s a lot of words, and a lot of titles, and really it all amounts to “who had the best toy”. When the dust settled at the end of the 2011 Expo in Las Vegas, there was a clear winner amongst the group: the third installment of Disney and Pixar’s CG franchise, Toy Story 3. While Hello Kitty took home the award for best Character and Toy Brand, Toy Story nabbed the top overall spot, bringing yet another honor to Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of Andy’s toys.

Toy Story 3 brings Oscars to Pixar

Toy Story 3 brings Oscars to Pixar

During last night’s 83rd Annual Academy Awards, Disney’s Toy Story franchise yet again proved it’s power in the world of cinema, as the latest sequel, Toy Story 3, brought home Oscar gold! While the film had to settle for just a nomination in “the big award,” Best Picture, Toy Story 3 did dominate the Best Animated Feature category, sending Lee Unkrich to the stage. Randy Newman, long time composer for Pixar’s CG films, was also honored for Toy Story 3’s song “We Belong Together.” It was the second time Newman received such an honor, having previously won a decade ago for Monsters, Inc.

Toy Story, Cars, Ratatouille, Up, and Wall-E get Stamped

Toy Story, Cars, Ratatouille, Up, and Wall-E get Stamped

How much does a stamp go for nowadays? Is it still a quarter? Wait, what, 44 cents?! Geez. I guess with email being so common, we’re not writing too many regular letters. However, the latest effort from the United States Postal Service might get us to start writing snail mail letters more and more, as long as we can use those sweet new Pixar stamps! Together with Disney, the USPS is rolling out a line of commemorative stamps via the Send a Hello program. It will include a number star characters in Pixar films, including characters from Cars, Ratatouille, Toy Story, Up, and Wall*E. The Disney crew joins other arts and entertainment stars, like Mark Twain, Gregory Peck, Helen Hayes, Selena, Carlos Gardel, Carmen Miranda, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Owney, and Romare Bearden.

Toy Story 4 puts Buzz in a vacuum

Toy Story 4 puts Buzz in a vacuum

Well… no. The first Toy Story saw Woody and Buzz get separated from Andy and the toys. Pixar’s sequel, Toy Story 2, had the crew meet with the Woody’s Round Up Gang. Disney’s third tale, Toy Story 3, reversed the plot of the first CG film and had Andy separate from the toys. Now, what if Toy Story 4 was simply Andy’s mom cleaning house and vacuuming up all the spare bits and pieces of each and every toy? Tell me that doesn’t sound a little more threatening than Zurg! Recently, a commercial for the LG Kompressor Elite debuted on TVs around the globe, showing off the vacuum’s power. The story told in the 75 second clip takes that Toy Story 4 concept for a spin. Check it!
