As expected, pretty much the whole old gang is back! Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bullseye. And of course, Slinky, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, and our favorite little alien trio. Barbie also makes an appearance!
But among them is a slew of new, fabulous and colorful creations. And I'm not gonna lie. I pretty much wouldn't mind owning all of them.
Insert PicSpam! Here is just a few (okay, several) (okay, more than several) of the new faces in Toy Story 3. I LOVE THEM.
So yes! These are some new faces, in no particular order. They're wonderful. There were so many new toys in Toy Story 3 that if I could have found all of their pictures.... Goodness, there would have been hundreds. It was fun to see new toys outside of the classic clan.
One of my favorite things about Toy Story 3 was that, as a fan since the franchise started, Pixar stayed true to their original characters. For kids who haven't yet been introduced to the amazingness that is Toy Story 1 & 2, well they just get to fall in love with these guys for the first time. But for those of us who know and love Woody, Buzz, Rex... None of them fell short of the great, fun personalities they've always been.
The plot is cute. Very. I laughed out loud a number of times. Two of my favorite characters ended up being Barbie and Ken. And, of course, it wouldn't be an adventure if the gang didn't get into a little trouble.
I won't give away any plot points. I hate nothing more than having a movie ruined for me before I even go, but I highly recommend seeing this. It's lighthearted, it's cute, it's fun. Sometimes there's nothing more relaxing than kicking back and reliving your childhood. And if you've never seen any of the Toy Story films, now is as good a time to start as any!
So go! Bring a friend! Because the toys are back in town. ;-)
