Directed by Chris Wedge.
A teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world - and ours.
Based on the children's book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs by William Joyce, Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) directs this family-adventure with outstanding 3D and thrilling chase-sequences which are let down by a story that lacks the moral-core it clearly should have. With a Toy Story-esque "secret life" of characters within the forest, we join Mk (Amanda Seyfried) as she magically shrinks and is tasked with saving the forest as a great »

Check out this amazing illustration of a real life looking Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story created by DeviantArt artist DanLuVisiArt. I absolutely love this design. The artist also came up with a background story for the character with a great twist.
As Buzz's final moment came before him, he glared into the black abyss, only capturing one last one thing: a promise he made his son:
"I will always protect and watch over you. To infinity and beyond."
Buzz was an all American hero. He worked for the Star Command Army and had been recently promoted to Staff Sgt, leading the young and brave through interstellar wars against the evil alien terrorist, Zurg.
While deep in space, Buzz's ship was pulled into a worm-hole caused by his arch-nemesis Commander Zurg. Buzz tried everything in his power to turn his ship around, but to no avail. At this point, Buzz and »

The Pixar sequel that we all really want is The Incredibles 2. But is it any closer to being made?
We're not the only ones, we suspect, who have a different Pixar sequel wishlist to the one we're getting. Granted, the Toy Story trilogy is brilliant, but Cars 2 wasn't. And while we're looking forward to Monsters University, and will inevitably buy a ticket for the now-announced Finding Nemo 2, it's surely The Incredibles that most lends itself to a follow-up.
Nobody has ever ruled The Incredibles 2 out, and director Brad Bird has chatted about it before. He's given an update though on his thoughts in a new piece with The Hollywood Reporter. And he admitted “I've been thinking about it. People think I have not been, but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching »
'Glam' version of character from Pixar animation Brave removed from Disney website after creator describes it as 'horrible'
Disney has been forced to remove a "glammed-up" version of Princess Merida from the Pixar fantasy fairytale Brave from its official website following a high-profile campaign.
Red-headed teenage tomboy Merida had been given a makeover in advance of her induction into the Disney Princess collection, rendering the character slimmer, older and somewhat sexualised in comparison with her appearance in 2012's Oscar-winning animation. More than 200,000 people signed a Change.org petition calling on the studio to return the character to her more realistic origins and the redesign was also criticised by Merida's Oscar-winning creator Brenda Chapman.
While Disney has not officially announced a U-turn, the creator of the Change.org petition says "glam" Merida has gone missing from the Disney Princesses website after being officially inducted at Disney World last weekend.

As critics swoon over the British star's timbre and tone, it is clear that a great voice is still essential for any great movie actor
This week, Benedict Cumberbatch has been basking in praise for his portrayal of the villain, John Harrison, in Jj Abrams' new film, Star Trek Into Darkness – more particularly, his voice has been drawing raves.
"So sepulchrally resonant that it could have been synthesised from the combined timbres of Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Alan Rickman holding an elocution contest down a well," sighed The Independent's Jonathan Romney. "The deep-voiced Cumberbatch asserts fully self-justified treachery", asserted The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy. In The New Yorker, Anthony Lane launched a career-overview of Cumberbatch's "honeyed mellifluous voice", concluding: "The timbre remains in Abrams film." The Daily Mirror judged its readers so in need of a top-up of Cumberbatch's Burtonesque baritone, it linked to a video in which »

During a week when the TV networks are rolling out their schedules, they are also taking pains to talk about how they are getting off the grid.
Every TV net boasts special programming – once-a-year fare that runs the gamut from The Super Bowl to a showing of “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” – but the next TV season looks to be filled with specials that are a little more so, as well as short-run series that have a “watch-now-or-miss-them-forever” kind of quality.
Fox will unveil a limited-run revival of its venerable “24” spy serial, and Kevin Reilly, Fox’s entertainment chairman, suggested ealier this week that more editions of the series in its new format were not a foregone conclusion. And don’t forget about its science-exploring “Cosmos” limited series featuring “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane as host. ABC will broadcast a new special based on the “Toy Story” movie franchise from its Disney-owned sister, »

I hadn't heard of this, or if I had I forgot, but TV Guide has premiered the above first look picture from "Toy Story of Terror", an upcoming 30-minute long Halloween special featuring the Toy Story gang. Apparently the story centers on the gang as the toy's new owner Bonnie takes the toys with her and the family on vacation when their car breaks down and they're forced to stay in a spooky motel. It appears Jesse (voiced by Joan Cusack) is at the center of the story with Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Rex (Wallace Shawn), Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton) and Trixie (Kristen Schaal) also along for the ride. There's also a new toy in the mix voiced by Carl Weathers named Combat Carl (naturally). Angus MacLane, who's been doing work with Pixar since Geri's Game in 1997 and up through working as an animator on Toy Story 3, »

Anyone who thought that Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story" franchise would really be kaput following "Toy Story 3" (a movie that practically crow-barred tears out of even the most hardened misanthrope) were, of course, out of their collective minds. Since the third film was released, we've had three dazzling theatrical short films ("Hawaiian Vacation," "Small Fry," and "Partysaurus Rex") and idle chatter of a fourth film. And come Halloween, we'll get something even more special – a 22-minute TV special called "Toy Story of Terror," the first image of which debuted today. Also, former Pixar director Brenda Chapman weighs in on the controversy surrounding her "Brave" character Merida becoming an official Disney Princess. The first image from the special – featuring Woody (Tom Hanks) and Jessie (Joan Cusack) huddled around a ominously glow-in-the-dark Buzz (Tim Allen) – is appropriately atmospheric, and along with the image, some details have emerged about the special's tone and plot. »

I’m not entirely sure what I’d want to do on a date with Prince Harry, but I’m sure what’s on the first guy’s sign would figure into it somehow.
The Timbers Army did something amazing at the game. Now we just have to get the Big Four sports in the U.S. to do the same.
In what has to be the end of civilized society, rich Manhattanites are hiring people with disabilities to go with them to Disney so they can skip the lines for the rides.
The National Organization for Marriage has announced plans to sue the IRS over whoever leaked their 2008 tax return. Blindly suing the government without anything except suspicion and a convenient time of scandal isn’t really a legal strategy, but it’s probably great to fundraise on. »

In the grand old tradition, well in recent times, of animated Halloween Specials, I’m excited to share the first still from Pixar’s ‘Toy Story Of Terror!’. I’ve always quite enjoyed The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror as they venture though various homages and pastiche and to see the Toy Story toys back up on the screen, in any form, is pretty darn cool.
We first heard news of this back in October of last year and obviously animation takes a little longer than most to bring to life, but it’s been confirmed that ABC in the USA will screen it in October this year. The story follows Bonnie on a road trip to visit her grandma and she’s taken all the toys along with her for the journey, as her favourite is Jessie (Joan Cusack), this one-off will feature the cowgirl a little more prominently »

Some cute little shorts featuring the characters of Toy Story have already made their way to the big screen, even after Toy Story 3 hit theaters. Now another new one is coming this Halloween, but it's a full 30-minutes long and will be getting the TV treatment. Given the timing of the short's premiere, it's no surprise to learn it's called Toy Story of Terror, and it mostly focuses on Jesse (Joan Cusack) as Bonnie takes the toys on a road trip and they end up staying in a spooky motel after the car breaks down. But don't worry, because Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and some of the other toys will be there too.

Here’s some good news! A new Toy Story short, Toy Story of Terror will roll onto ABC in the States (not sure where it’ll end up on this side of the pond, although I’d bet Sky Disney is where it will) this Halloween. The Toy Story crew find themselves staying in a motel after Bonnie brings them on a road trip. The end up inside the spooky motel after the car breaks down and then somebody goes missing! It sounds like fun and it’s going to be a whole 30 minutes long! With the amount of gags and injokes Pixar get into their movies, I’d imagine the motel to be a send up of the Bates motel at the very least! »

Pixar Animation has announced that they will be releasing a new Toy Story short for Halloween called Toy Story of Terror. The image above gives us our first look at what's in store for fans.

The short was directed by Angus MacLane (Small Fry). Here's a short description:
Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom and the toys are in the trunk. Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel and all kinds of chaos ensues.
The director explains that Jessie will be the main character of this short but that all the other characters will be in it as well. Oh! And the original voice cast will be returning to reprise their roles. »
