Toy Story 3

Animation Season 2022 finally reaches Pixar!

After the huge success of Toy Story in 1995 and Toy Story 2 in 1999, a sequel seemed inevitable, but it'd take eleven years and a lot of behind the scenes issues.

With the relationship between Disney and Pixar soured, Disney exercised its right to make sequels without Pixar's involvement. Disney decided to forge ahead with Toy Story 3 through their own newly-created CG animation studio - Circle Seven Animation.

What happened next is hardly child's play, but in 2006 a deal was made for Disney to buy Pixar, ensuring the Toy Story threequel was in good hands once more. This was always going to be the end.... until it wasn't.

The stop-motion remake of Toy Story 3 is available at https://youtu.be/YfduDq5gLnE

I would love to hear your thoughts on Toy Story 3 !

Hi! I'm Em. I created Verbal Diorama in 2018, and launched the podcast in February 2019 to rapturous applause and acclaim.... from my cat Jess.

The modus operandi of Verbal Diorama is simple: movies are tough to make! The coming together of a team of people from all walks of life to make something to entertain, delight and educate us for 90+ mins is not an easy task, and yet so many succeed at it. That must be something to celebrate.

I'm here to do just that - to celebrate movies. Their history and legacy, and why they remain so special to so many of us.

I mostly host solo, but often you'll hear my cat Jess in the background (she's 17 years old, and very loud!).

I love podcasts and listen to many, but never my own.

I unashamedly love The Mummy (1999) and Grease 2. I'm still looking for a cool rider.
