A Granddaughter’s Guide to Toy Story 3

I have watched Pixar movies ever since I was a baby, and  they keep getting better (They were the Oscar winners of last year’s hit, Up, as well as Cars). I was extremely glad to see that Pixar hasn’t lost its touch with Toy Story 3.

It’s quite a few years later since Toy Story 2, and the toys’ owner, Andy, is going to college. Andy’s mom is struggling with this and cleaning out his room—something many Zoomers can relate to. But the action really starts when the legendary toys, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie and the gang, try to find their way back to Andy after they’re accidentally thrown in the trash, donated to the horrifying Sunnyside day care and threatened by a fuzzy teddy named Lotzo Huggin Bear.

The movie has most of the original voice cast such as Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz, Joan Cusack as Jessie, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head, Wallace Shawn as Rex, and John Ratzenburger as Hamm. (All Zoomers too, by the way.)

I would recommend this movie for the biggest Toy Story fans and even for people that don’t really know what Toy Story is, as there are lots of laughs, even for the older set (the scenes with Barbie and Ken will have you in stitches). It is truly brilliant and had me reminiscing about the first two movies.
