Toy Story Scheduled to Return in 2013

Toy Story Scheduled to Return in 2013

While Pixar has managed to keep the Toy Story franchise alive with various CG theatrical shorts that feature some of the supporting cast (Haiian Vacation, Small Fry, Partysaurus Rex), fans who want a full length return for the entire cast would be disappointed as Toy Story 3 effectively closed the book on the gang (on a high/positive note, though). At least, that “was” the case.

Toy Story 3 already finished the story of Andy, Woody, Buzz, and the rest of his toys, and a continuation would cheapen the ending, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a spin-off that revisits the Toy Story universe from the perspective of another toy. And on the September 14 release of Pixar’s Finding Nemo 3D, we’re going to get the chance to see the most recent Toy Story short starring the plastic dinosaur, Rex.

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!

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 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.
