Tim Allen Teases More About Emotional ‘Toy Story 4’ Ending

Today I discovered another interview with Tim Allen, this time on the set of Last Man Standing, where Extra TV talked to him about his series, as well as Toy Story 4.  His statements about the upcoming sequel were much like the others he’s made over the past few weeks, and touched upon the emotional nature of the film.

Tim Allen Talks About ‘Toy Story 4’, Animation, and Toy Story Land

I’m really thankful for Tim Allen’s round of interviews right now, leading up to the new-network premiere of his sitcom Last Man Standing.  Today another one surfaced – this time from radio station Majic 95.5 – where he shared probably the most Toy Story 4 information we’ve gotten in quite some time.

What do I do when get too busy with everyday life to keep up with my blog?  Catch up with one of my News Roundup posts, of course!  It’s been a hectic few weeks for me, but fortunately (or unfortunately?), Toy Story news was light anyway. Finally, though, I have several exciting things to pass along to my fellow fans…

Did Pixar give us Toy Story fans a belated Christmas present?  Is this the very first concept art to be released for Toy Story 4?  The image – which is consistent with the style of a storyboard sketch – was tweeted by Pixar Story Supervisor Matthew Luhn on Sunday:

Toy Story News Roundup: Interviews, Toy Story at 20

TS News Roundup

It’s been over two weeks since I’ve published anything on this blog, and there’s a good reason for that – I’ve been at Disney World!  My family and I are annual passholders, so we head to the parks as often as we can – this time it was to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and to celebrate Toy Story‘s 20th anniversary with the toys themselves.  We had some amazing luck while we were there that led to an unforgettable Pixar experience, which I’ll be writing about soon in a future post.  But for now, I thought I’d recap the little snippets of Toy Story related news that came out while I was away.

Sneak Peek! ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot’ Blu-Ray Bonus Features

On Tuesday, November 3, Toy Story That Time Forgot will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD, and I can’t wait!  Of course I’ll be running out as early as I can to buy it, just like I did with Toy Story of TERROR! last year.  A new Pixar Blu-ray is definitely something to look forward to, because they never fail to give us a wealth of behind-the-scenes treasures.

Toy Story Enchanted Window Debuts at Disneyland

Disneyland Window

Back in May, the Disney Parks Blog announced that six new Enchanted Windows would be added to Main Street, USA at Disneyland, as part of the park’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration. Elaborate, moving displays, showcasing popular animated films in the windows of the Emporium, have been a long-standing tradition, and the latest additions were set to include Peter Pan, Cinderella, The Princess and the Frog, Frozen, Aladdin, and Toy Story.  Several of the windows have been in place for a while, but just yesterday, the new Toy Story window was unveiled!  Although I haven’t seen it in person, I was able to find a fantastic video of it, as well as a few photos.

My ‘Toy Story 4’ Plea: Don’t Forget Jessie

jessie and bo talk

Ever since the Toy Story 4 announcements at the D23 Expo this past August, my excitement has been tempered with a little bit of fear.  What could possibly scare me about Toy Story?  Well, it’s the fact that in everything I’ve heard about the plot of the movie, only Woody and Buzz Lightyear are mentioned as going on the quest to find Bo Peep.  From statements made by John Lasseter over the course of the Expo weekend, to articles about Pixar President Jim Morris’s presentation in Australia, only those two characters are consistently listed as heading out on the film’s epic journey.

Pixar’s President, Jim Morris, was in Australia yesterday for a presentation of the studio’s upcoming slate of films.  While The Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory received the most attention, as would be expected, Toy Story 4 was touched upon briefly.  Here’s what I’ve been able to find, from various sources…

Toy Story Throwback: Toy Story at the Oscars

toy-story-2-oscars

Even though the next Academy Awards are still a while away, I thought that – with the Emmys this weekend and all – it might be a good time to revisit some of my very favorite archival material relating to the Toy Story films.  I usually don’t make a big fuss over awards shows myself, unless there’s a movie (or a television show, or a musical performer) that I care especially about – needless to say, anything Toy Story would definitely get me to watch!  And I’m no film critic or analyst, by any means, so don’t expect any discussion of the merits of nominations or statistical facts from me here.  With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s take a look at the toys’ presence at the Oscars back in 1996, 2000, and 2011…
