New Toy Story 3 Trailer is Pixarriffic, As Expected

So I watched the new trailer for Toy Story 3 and I laughed and smiled and tipped my hat to Pixar. These guys can’t lose. But maybe that’s what’s wrong with this preview. I didn’t circle June 18, 2010 on my calendar and I’m not doing cartwheels and openly crapping my drawers over the prospect of seeing Buzz, Woody and Potato Head for a third time.

I suppose part of my reluctance to embrace Toy Story 3 is it seems so easy. With all the originality Pixar has churrned out in the last 15 years (only one sequel, Toy Story 2), returning to the talking toys just seems more of a cash cow than a presentation of Pixar’s storytelling skill and deft animation. I know, I know. I’m probably being bitter. Even my least favorite Pixar movies (Finding Nemo and Cars) are still loveable. Plus, giving Pixar the brown helmet is like shooting a puppy in the testicles with an Airsoft pellet gun, or drop kicking a bunny.

But please, tell me I’m not alone. Tell me I’m not the only one that feels kinda meh to the Toy Story 3 movie. Check out the trailer below and, as always, speak your mind.

  • Whether or not I’m excited doesn’t really matter because my kids are already telling me they can’t wait that long to see it. Meh or not, I will probably drag my sorry butt to the theater just for them.

  • Oooh, I’m so excited. This looks amazing and I can’t wait! I’m 17 and Toy Story’s still the movie I’m looking forward most to this summer.

  • I felt a little “meh” about it after first looking at this trailer. However, after repeated viewings, I LOVE this trailer and I’m even more excited for the movie. I mean, I truly believe it’s going to be a classic like the first two. Also, I recently looked up the trailers to Toy Story 2 when it was coming out. In my honest opinion, Toy Story 2 looked as bad the the direct-to-video Disney sequels during those trailers. It didn’t look like a good movie to me, anyway. And that movie turned out to be great.

  • Screw Toy Story 3.

    Bring on Incredibles 2!

  • You know, Danny, I agree with that. I would like to see a sequel to The Incredibles. That is one of Pixar’s best movies and probably my second favorite. Wall-E is my first.

  • The Incredibles is great, and I would love for them to return to it if they come up with a great story, but I’ve wanted a Toy Story 3 ever since I first saw it, when I was about 6 or 7 years old. I’ll be 17 when Toy Story 3 comes out.

  • I think the second was very good but I think the best part of the first movie was the relationship between Andy and Woody and how Buzz’s introduction through that all into turmoil. It’s easy to focus on the main storyline of Sid’s house but you can’t miss the backdrop of Andy and the events going on in his life (birthday, moving).

    That backdrop was really pretty much missing in Toy Story 2 but seems to be back in Toy Story 3. So while I am not doing cartwheels. I will be seeing this one in the theaters.

    And this is a great movie site. Thanks for putting this together. I have more reviews to read!
