New 'Toy Story 3' news and trailer arrive online
Casting surprises and familiar images a'plenty
Are you excited yet?
Right now, it seems like "Toy Story" is sort of omnipresent in pop culture. The double-feature of the first two films is still playing in 3D in theaters, and today, Pixar announced that they'll be extending the run so that more people can see it. That's good news for me, because I was traveling the first week it was out, and this week, I'm playing catch-up, so I haven't had a chance to take Toshi to check them out yet.
The new trailer for the third film, the first to feature actual footage, made its debut in theaters in front of the double-feature, but it's available now online, and I'll embed it at the bottom of this post. It's very strange to see Andy all grown up now, but in many ways, the trailer serves as a reassurance that, sure enough, we're about to get more "Toy Story," and it doesn't seem that Pixar has screwed with the basic recipe at all.
Today also saw announcements via the official Pixar Facebook page that Kristen Schaal and Blake Clark have joined the cast of "Toy Story 3," with Clark stepping in as Slinky Dog and Schaal playing a still-unnamed character. I love her on "Flight Of The Conchords," and Clark's pretty much a perfect choice to replace Jim Varney, so both announcements sound good to me.
The movie opens in theaters next June, which seems like a million years from now, but at the rate we're getting information on the movie via Twitter and MySpace and Facebook and in theaters, I'm sure it'll seem like no time at all.
