Director Lee Unkrich and Producer Darla K. Anderson Video Interview TOY STORY 3 slice

Last weekend, I had the incredible privilege of going to Pixar Animation Studios for the Toy Story 3 press day.  The experience was so fantastic that I can’t even believe I wrote that last sentence.  And then it somehow got even better as I got the chance to interview the cast and filmmakers.  I don’t want to spoil the movie, so I’ll just say that it’s probably the most action-packed and thrilling film Pixar has ever done.  This is one of the most highly-anticipated films of the summer and it absolutely delivers.

The folks primarily responsible for crafting the thrill ride?  Director Lee Unkrich and Darla K. Anderson.  Unkrich has been at Pixar since Toy Story and he co-directed Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo.  Anderson has also worked on Pixar films since the first Toy Story and so these two are about as veteran as it gets.  Hit the jump for what they had to say about the flick and be sure to keep checking back as I’ll be posting a new interview every day this week.  Finally, click here for 5 movie clips and 18 high resolution images from Toy Story 3.
