I was really excited when I found out that there would be a third Toy Story movie, but for some mysterious reason, I didn’t see it until a couple of days ago. So I had a lot of time to imagine how great Toy Story 3 would be, and yet, it totally lived up to my expectations. In fact, it exceeded them, and turned out to be the perfect ending for these 15 years of fun we’ve had along with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy’s memorable toys.

The boy called Andy that we remember from Toy Story (1990) and Toy Story 2 (1995) is not a kid anymore. He’s 17 years old now and about to start college. The question here is, what is he gonna do with all his old toys? Take them to the University? Put them in the athic? Or worst of all… throw them away? Sheriff Woody is trying to calm the other toys down, by continuously assuring them that everything is gonna be OK. The thing is, Woody himself is not  completely sure of this… and he shouldn’t, actually. Because as a result of a big, big confussion they all end up in Sunnyside, a day-care center that first looks like Heaven, but is really closer to Hell. Their mission now is to get out of this horrible place as soon as possible, which won’t be any easy. At this moment, the destiny of Andy’s toys seems more uncertain than ever.

Logically, we can see a lot of improvement in the quality of the animation from the first two movies of the saga. If, for a moment, we focused our attention a bit less on the plot and a bit more on all those tiny details of the animation, we could see what an amazing job the people from Pixar have done. It’s quite difficult, however, to get distracted from the plot of the film. Inventive and engaging, it includes the typical plans of the toys to get out of trouble and also some new hilarious characters, like Ken and Lotso. As always, our old friends are here too: Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Bullseye, Rex, Hamm, Slinky and Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head. They all keep making us laugh out loud, this definitely hasn’t changed.

As if it wasn’t enough, Toy Story 3 reaches some moments that really touch your heart, no matter whether you’re a child, a teen, a parent or a 70-year-old. But I think that this movie is far more special for those of us who have grown up at the same time as Andy, and by the side of his beloved toys. I can’t say how many memories I collect around these movies. A huge poster hanging on the wall, my brother and I watching the same scene over and over again just to hear Buzz Lightyear say “a bad word” (which he didn’t actually say), the many times I’ve sang You’ve Got A Friend In Me… This movie is magnificient, yes, but for me it is a lot more than that… Toy Story is unforgettable. ☼
