Before Pixar and Disney became Oprah/Gail style partners, a third “Toy Story” was in the works at the Mouse House with an interesting plotline.
Seems the Buzz Lightyear toyline is recalled, including Andy’s toy, so the gang go on an adventure to Taiwan to rescue the malfunctioning Buzz.
Now though that John Lasseter and crew are back in the saddle, they have a different plan in store for the fully Pixar-approved third “Toy Story” feature says The Wall Street Journal.
Director Lee Unkrich says that “Woody the cowboy and his toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college.” Michael Arndt (“Little Miss Sunshine”) wrote the new screenplay.
The sdtuio will re-release Disney Digital 3-D versions of Toy Story on “October 2nd 2009” and “Toy Story 2” on February 12th 2010 to celebrate the 3D-produced third film’s release on June 18th 2010.
