TOY STORY Characters “Not Going Away Forever”; Will Appear in a Short Attached to CARS 2

     June 18, 2010


Toy Story 3 wraps up Pixar’s flagship trilogy nicely and could have been a natural place to end the series completely.  But director Lee Unkrich confirmed in an interview with MSN that we haven’t seen the last of Woody and Buzz.  Although he insists that there are no current plans for another feature length Toy Story, Unkrich stated that Pixar is “going to keep [the characters] alive; they’re not going away forever.”

And where will they show up next?  They’re going to star in the short film attached to Cars 2, which hits theaters June 24, 2011.  I’m excited to see a Toy Story short, but the cynic in me sees this as Pixar trying to use their strongest franchise to boost their weakest.

    Anything Larry the Cable Guy touches turns to crap. That's one of the reasons Cars was worse than the other films. And from what I hear he is going to be the main character in Cars 2. That should go over well.

    I doesn't matter if you like him as a comedian or not, he did a great job in cars. His voice and personality and his voice and personality fit his character perfectly. Cars was probably one of the best and Larry helped it a lot.
