I’ve been waiting for this to go online for almost a year. A promo for Toy Story 3, “Groovin’ with Ken” was shown at last year’s Comic-Con and the audience (myself included) loved it. It’s a brief, Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous-esque piece that’s set in the 70s and has Ken giving advice on how other toys can be cool like him. Of course, the interview becomes awkward when he gets questions on his importance relative to Barbie’s.
If nothing else, the video is worth checking out for the bit of Ken dancing. Also, if you’re somehow not already convinced, Michael Keaton is going to kill as the voice of Ken. So hit the jump already and check out the video. You can also click here to find out what Steve thought about the film when he saw it at ShoWest. Toy Story 3 hits theaters on June 18th in 3D.
Here’s the official synopsis for Toy Story 3:
The creators of the beloved “Toy Story” films re—open the toy box and bring moviegoers back to the delightful world of Woody, Buzz and our favorite gang of toy characters in TOY STORY 3. Woody and Buzz had accepted that their owner Andy would grow up someday, but what happens when that day arrives? In the third installment, Andy is preparing to depart for college, leaving his loyal toys troubled about their uncertain future. Lee Unkrich (co—director of “Toy Story 2” and “Finding Nemo”) directs this highly anticipated film, and Michael Arndt, the Academy Award®—winning screenwriter of “Little Miss Sunshine,” brings his unique talents and comedic sensibilities to the proceedings.
