With the final instalment of the Toy Story trilogy opening in cinemas this week, it’s no wonder that parents (and grown-ups furtively pretending to be parents in order to justify their DVD collection) are stocking up on the celebrated parts one and two. Already being hailed as one of history’s most successful film trilogies, it looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more DVD love from Woody, Buzz and the entire Toy Story team. And we couldn’t be happier about it.
Oh those crafty Disney devils. Just like those wily coots over at team Alice In Wonderland, they think the best way to hype up a film is by releasing little bits of info, week by week. They reckon that the public are so bamboozled by the whole ‘we’re letting you into a secret’ smokescreen, that we’ll literally murder a puppy to see the film itself. Sick, is what it is. Sick. And completely true. Hurrah for teasers!
Though Toy Story 2 3D is not the immersive, mind-blowing experience that watching Avatar is, there’s no denying that this film only gets better with the added technology. And the difference is that – unlike Avatar- Toy Story 2 never had to rely on its special effects to captivate your attention.
