Toy Story 3 teaser trailer

Attached to today’s release of Up is the teaser trailer for Toy Story 3. I love how they squeezed the entire cast (and their voices) into it.

UPDATE: We’ve refreshed the link. If it doesn’t work, go see it today with UP and give us your comments.

(Thanks, Iain Robbins)

    I wonder who did those incoherent voices for Slinky in this.

  • dan


    SO happy right now!!

  • If you liked one and two — you’ll love three. It’s that good.

    Yeah, need I say, they’ve done it again.

  • June 2010 can’t come soon enough!

  • Excuse me a moment.

    *Lets inner fangirl off leash*

    WHOOOOOOO!!!!! yesyesyesyes!!!

    Okay, I’m done. :)

  • Dan:

    According to Wikipedia, “Slinky Dog’s voice artist Jim Varney died of lung cancer in 2000. He was replaced by a friend who producer John Lasseter described as “sound[ing] an awful lot like him.”

    Or they just reused old sounds of him from the previous two movies.

    Interestingly, a lot of animators at work didn’t seem to be impressed or even interested by this teaser. A couple of them even noticed a couple of terrible poses, especially with Woody at the end. But, at the same time, I think the teaser did its best at teasing, especially when you consider it’s gonna be in front of Up.

    So, what did the rest of you think of it? Were you disappointed, surprised, neutral? I was pretty happy to see the gang back together, personally!

  • Tom

    Those wizards at Pixar hooked a bank of car batteries up to old Jim Varney and brought him back for some voice sessions. They aren’t only animators, they’re REanimators!

    /hey Vern!

    Ah well. It’s playing before UP, right? I’ll see it soon!

  • For those that missed it, it was very charming.

  • Keith Seyer

    Found a working online post of the trailer off of Carlos Baena’s Blog.

    Enjoy your updated link while it lasts :)

  • Who are they gonna replace the late Jim Varney with as the voice of Slinky Dog?

  • Julian Carter

    You’re all very welcome, hehe. =)

  • Neil

    ‘Andy’ must be nearing College age ,wonder if he’s still playing with these guys.

  • Trevor

    Just got back from Up and it wasn’t in my theater’s previews.

  • Andrew

    Neil: “‘Andy’ must be nearing College age ,wonder if he’s still playing with these guys.”

    Believe it or not, that’s the premise of the story! It was said on a recent article somewhere.

  • Paul N

    Didn’t see this when I saw UP – but now I have! Thanks for the link.

  • Tom

    Hoping for some “Brave Little Toaster” cameos due to the similarity between their stories and Lassiter’s involvement in both.

  • Keith

    It was like seeing old friends again! Loved it. I didn’t notice any terrible poses though… Woody’s ALWAYS posed awkwardly given the way the doll is made, so his elbow-high hand-on-hip poses are normal. He’s always carried his weight a bit differently than other characters, too. Can’t wait to see it on the big screen!

  • vzk

    You might have already seen this, but oh well…

  • I can’t help but be a little dubious about this one. It feels like it’s only being made just so Pixar can remind everyone who is in charge of their films.

    At least now, Disney isn’t wasting anymore money on a shop set up for the sole purpose of putting Pixar’s property thru a sequel factory.

  • Fred Sparrman

    Maybe this trailer only plays in front of the 3D version of Up? That’s how I saw it tonight. Looking forward to TS3.

  • Kyle Maloney

    Toy Story 2 remains my favorite movie of all time. So it should go without saying I love this trailer. Saw it in 3d twice, and I keep watching the HD versions at home over and over. I cant explain how great it feels seeing the gang on screen again in new animation and hearing their voices again. Next June cant come soon enough. Ive been waiting since 1999 for this sequel.

    By the way, if you didnt have it attatched to up, chances are you did not see UP in 3d. its only in the 3d showings. for the 2d you get the princess and the frog instead.

  • Kyle Maloney

    Floyd, can you tell us anything else at all? do you know what stage their in production their in at least? I’m wondering if they recycled the original models, or had to make new ones. I heard the models/rigs were so old they would only run on outdated systems no longer in use anywhere. So I’m curious if they’ll be able to use the latest rendering techniques with them or not. From the looks of the teaser they are.

    I also wonder how…light hearted the movie will be. I prefered the slightly more depressing tone of the second compared to the first for some reason. I cant imagine 3 wont be even more sad.

  • Sam Filstrup

    Seems like its only show in the 3D edition, saw it in 2D saw the Partly Cloudy short, which was very enjoyable.

  • Adam C

    I’m feeling kinda meh about that trailer. Sure, I’m excited for the fact that Toy Story 3 is coming, but… that trailer…

    It featured a scene that I like to call “the Pixar moment”.

    The lead character wanders through all the other characters in one big group going “hey” “how’s it going?” “haha, watch it, coming through!” “lookin’ good!” etc, while the other characters exhibit a major quirk of their personality or design. It was in EVERY Pixar movie up until the Incredibles and always bugged the hell out of me.

    I don’t know what it is about it, perhaps the off the cuff conversational nature of the dialogue in such an obviously very engineered scene. Or perhaps how it feels like a lazy way to introduce an ensemble cast in one big go. Lazy, though effective, sure. Or something. I don’t know, it just always irks me, and I’d was glad to see them not rely on it so much in their past few movies, but here it is as the trailer itself for Toy Story 3!

  • Amator

    Actually, Fred, it’s playing in front of every Digital showing of Up. This also includes 3D showing.

  • J. Shamblin

    Adam, it was a fun teaser trailer. Does Pixar really need a reason to have fun with their characters? Enjoy it for what it is. :)

  • Steve Gattuso

    Looks like I know what I’ll be watching in a year and change.

  • Azz

    I was meh, up until Hamm popped up and said “Ehhh, I’m Supervising”
    Then I got excited.

    Please make this good Pixar!

  • I’m looking forward to see what they do with a third Toy Story. They were definitely able to vary up the themes in Toy Story 2 from Toy Story 1, though I guess both films ultimately dealt with feeling underappreciated.

    The teaser really didn’t say anything about the film. Was truly a “teaser” trailer…
