"Toy Story 3" is coming to theaters nationwide June 18, and CC couldn't be more excited. Actually Ian and I are pretty excited ourselves.
Not only that, but in addition to the Disney*Pixar movie itself, the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood is hosting a "Toy Story" extravaganza on June 17, complete with a marathon showing of all three films in Disney Digital 3D, followed by admission to the 25,000 square-foot "Fun Zone" located behind the theater.
The Fun Zone, open from June 18-Aug. 29 following every showing of "Toy Story 3," features photo opportunities with Woody and Buzz Lightyear, games and even a stage show. (CC seriously won't know what to do with herself.)
It's amazing to think that the original "Toy Story" arrived in theaters 15 years ago. The only reference CC has had for this movie are the larger-than-life billboards of Woody and Buzz sprinkled all over the city. So, Ian and I decided to rent the original film for her (we still have to see "Toy Story 2"), and she was instantly hooked.
"Toy Story 3" finds Woody, Buzz and the gang back on the big screen as Andy prepares to leave for college (Ian and I were seriously sniffing at this trailer), and his toys land at a *gasp* daycare. So, the toys are once again looking for an escape route -- this time from handsy babies!
Something I'm sure CC can relate to.
