It’s approaching that time of year when production companies put out the ‘For Your Consideration’ posters in order to get the attention of the academy and build up a claim for their film to win those little gold statues known as Oscars. Disney Pixar has started a massive shout for Toy Story 3, which must get nominated in the Best Picture category for the 2011 awards. It was a very emotional film for everyone who watched it, don’t think I have heard or read a bad word against this film . . . so not since Return of the King or Shakespeare in Love has there been a film like this. The best reviewed film of the year as the posters say! Surely an animated film is going to win the Best Picture Oscar . . . will it be 2011?
If you regularly read my blog you would have noticed that I had been very much looking forward to see Toy Story 3 and I eventually got the chance when it was released on Monday. As the posters were being released I had been posting them on my blog, with lots of toys here. Posters featuring our already favorite toys Woody, Buzz, Hamm, Rex, Jessie, Slink and Mr Potato Head. So I thought it was about time to post all of the posters featuring the new Toys!
After such a long wait to eventually see Toy Story 3 (11 years to be precise), I went to the cinema on Monday for the 9.10pm showing and it was pretty full with people mainly around my age, that age being . . . well the children who grew up with the first Toy Story and it certainly took us all back to our childhoods and it felt great seeing our favorite toys on another adventure.
Andy has grown up and so have we, but we still love these toys!
Inspired by a “become a fan” or now “like” on Facebook. I thought it was a good title to write some build up about the long-awaited third installment of Toy Story. To really get into this blog I guess I have to think back to 1995 and the release of the first Toy Story when I was 7/8 years old! So I had to be in the target audience for this film. I went to the cinema to see it and can remember totally loving it and I used to hope my toys came to life when I was not around (yes, probably extremely sad to admit that but it is true, and I am sure a lot of you out there felt exactly the same). The thought of your toys having adventures and everything really was just fantastic. Plus this was the first Pixar animation and so different to all the previous animated films we had ever seen.
Also released is a 4th poster, which features everyone favorite space ranger none other than Buzz Lightyear.
Woody is a cowboy doll and is very jealous when a new toy comes into the room and he feels like he is no longer the favourite with Andy his owner. To infinity and beyond . . .
