Toy Story changed animation movies forever, Toy Story 2 changed animation sequels forever and Toy Story 3 might very probably be the best movie out of the bunch. Even though I love to poke fun of Pixar running out of ideas for movies (though Inside Out is getting good buzz!), I can watch Toy Story movies forever.
It’s not easy to make a perfect replica of a toy that only appeared in a movie as a computer-generated creation, but Medicom has gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that its new Woody figure is the most screen accurate Toy Story replica you can buy.
Disney and Pixar just announced that John Lasseter will direct Toy Story 4, scheduled for release in June 2017. Yassssssssssss.
This is the poster for the new Toy Story half-hour television special that will air on ABC on December 2. The title: Toy Story That Time Forgot. It will feature the voices of Tom Hanks ad Tim Allen. More importantly, it's directed by Steve Purcell, the creator of the legendary Sam & Max.
I never thought Woody could be portrayed as a horror character until I saw this video of Toy Story mashed up with Annabelle. It's so scary that it will haunt my dreams tonight, tomorrow, and the rest of the week.
It's a cruel job being destroyer of childhoods but CinemaSins loves to ham it up when they poke fun at universally loved movies from our past. This time, their target is Toy Story, a movie that's not just awesome but also responsible for so much more awesome in the Pixar movies that followed it.*
I love the work artist/designer/mad doctor Jason Freeny. His Moist Productions shop has been showing us the fascinating humanoid anatomy of toys, animated characters and other objects for years. His new creations have reached new awesomely gross heights. Here's a collection of some of his masterworks:
Jonason Pauley, who looks like the spitting image of Toy Story's Andy, is making a re-make of Toy Story. Only it's the same exact movie except real toy versions of Woody, Buzz and the gang are used instead of Pixar's wizard CGI.
Please, let's never take Pixar for granted. And if we ever do find ourselves somehow deadened to the animation kingpin's charms, let's watch this gorgeous montage of their 12 feature films, 20 short films, and countless memories and moments. That should fix us right up. [Slashfilm]
I couldn't even guess what the commercial was advertising on my first go around, it was that awesome. For those who're curious, the amazing commercial is marketing the sucking power of a vacuum cleaner, the LG Kompressor Elite. [The Awesomer]
The iconic tube map of London's Underground network has been given a Tron-over by DeviantArt user IamClu, turning it into "The Grid." Buzz Lightyear and a double-decker bus have also been Tronified, below.
You've never heard Disney like this: the sampled sounds of Snow White remixed, reshuffled, and refitted into a soaring trip-hop beat. And wait until you hear Harry Potter.
I love my nephew's visits, if only so we can pull the old Scalextric set out and pretend we're both eight-year-olds. While this special Toy Story edition is only a 1:64 scale, I still really, really want it.
Rough sketches like this are one of the first steps in creating animated movies like Pixar's Toy Story 3. Wired took a look at how 49,516 such rough, vague sketches were used to create detailed scenes like this:
Oh, Thrustmaster. What heavenly delights have you brought us this time? Oh, the world's heaviest DS stylus? You shouldn't have. No, really. What's that? It's a projector as well?
