"Return of the Astro-nut!"- Hamm (Ratzenberger) talking about Buzz (Allen)

15 years ago, Pixar introduced the world to toy box full of interesting characters and a new perspective on playtime. Now, the toys face a new dilemma when their owner Andy is leaving off to college and the toys are most likely on their way to the trash bin. Therefore, some of the toys have decided to stow away in a donation box to a local preschool, where the toys assume they will have the time of their lives again. At first, things with LotsoHugginBear (Ned Beatty) and his group of toys seem well, but Woody (Hanks) still wants to get his group back to Andy before he leaves for college in two days.

Pixar continues to make glorious films that cannot withhold the glee and delight of children and adults alike. The story of Woody, Buzz and Andy's toys continue to move one to sorrow and remorse, especially when the toys feel neglect from their owner being too old to have playful adventures when he was a young child. If there are two themes to Toy Story 3, they are when parents have to see their grow up and trying to stave off growing up. However, parents with young children be warned that this final movie in the Toy Story trilogy is quite dark. Also, look out for the usual Pixar "cameos" and a special shout out to Pixar's favorite "competitor", Hayao Miyazaki.

Rating: * * * * * of 5
