Toy Story 3 – Movie Review
This movie takes place several years after the first two Toy Story films, and also after Woody and the rest of Andy’s toys have been in a trunk for a long time. Andy is now 17-years-old and preparing to leave for college, facing the decision to either keep his old toys, donate them, or throw them away. His mom encourages him to donate them, along with some other toys that Andy’s sister no longer plays with, to a local Daycare center.
Andy decides to bag them all up (every toy except Woody) and put them away in the attic. Andy’s mom mistakes the bag for being trash, and leaves the bag at the trash can outside, just when the dump truck is approaching. The toys manage to escape and decide it’s best to climb into the box (in the backseat of Andy’s mom’s car) being donated to the Daycare center.
Woody joins them, trying to convince them to return to Andy and let him put them in the attic, but they disagree.
Daycare turns out to be a nightmare, as they discover that all of the toys are being ruled under a crazy old bear, Lotso, who holds “unruly and disobedient” toys hostage. Lotso has Buzz reprogrammed and makes him be the guard to make sure the other toys don’t escape.
Meanwhile, Woody ends up with a little girl who attends the Daycare, and she takes him home. He has no idea about what’s happening with his friends at Daycare, until a clown doll who once shared the same owner as Lotso tells the story of how they lost their owner and of how Lotso was replaced, leading to him losing his mind over it and eventually ending up at Daycare and taking it over.
This movie has a lot of characters, old and new, with a lot of creativity and interesting plot. Before I watched this for the first time, someone told me it was a tear jerker and I found out why. It has a very dramatic twist that I didn’t expect and, yeah, it made me cry a little, haha.
I think this is definitely a good movie and I recommend it. ^_^
