Toy Story 3 plot revealed?
The plot for Toy Story 3, the latest outing for the franchise from Disney, has apparently been revealed, and if this is indeed the actual plot then I'm not sure if the idea to change the plot in the first place was the right choice.
You see this new plot idea smells a little bad to me and when you read into it that it provides Disney the capability to build in new characters and create some new merchandising lines. Am i getting too cynical?
The plot for Toy Story 3 goes something like this, Andy is going to college and for some reason he's managed to hold onto all the toys that he originally had, that's right the original group including Buzz and Woody. So on his first day heading into college he drops the toys off with a day care center, presumably for all the other little kiddies and toys to play with.
Leaving for college? Well that has to be the end of Andy for the story doesn't it? He's not going to come back after college and pick his toys back up is he? The reveal comes from The Wall Street Journal through dtheatre.
That aside we're bound to see the guys meet up with a brand new bunch of toys, and to me that smells merchandising and money.
The original idea was that all the Buzz toys were going to be recalled, an idea I really thought was a cool one. Back then it was scrapped by John Lasseter because he had a better idea that completed the trilogy, considering the way the plots were going in the two stories so far.
So this completes the franchise? Perhaps it does, perhaps we'll see the toys get handed over to a new owner? However I still think this plot line sounds awful.
