Toy Story 3 | DVD & Blu-ray Hi-Def Review

Released onto DVD & Blu-ray Hi-Def on November 2nd is Disney Pixar’s Toy Story 3!

They’re back! Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios present the critically-acclaimed, global box office smash Toy Story 3, an exciting, heart-warming story filled with humor, adventure and surprises, that reunites America’s favorite animated toys, Buzz and Woody, and introduces a whole new set of favorites to audiences around the globe. The world’s #1 animated film in box office history and The Walt Disney Company’s second biggest film of all time, Toy Story 3 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD November 2 by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Film Synopsis:
Toy Story 3 welcomes Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the whole gang back as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in… day care! These untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice, so it’s all for one and one for all as plans for the great escape get underway. More than a few new faces—some plastic, some plush—join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie’s counterpart Ken (voice of Michael Keaton), a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants (voice of Timothy Dalton) and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear (voice of Ned Beatty). Directed by Lee Unkrich (co-director of Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo), produced by Pixar veteran Darla K. Anderson (Cars, Monsters, Inc.) and written by Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine), Toy Story 3 is a comical new adventure!

When Toy Story 3 hit theaters, I wasn’t able to make it to a show with my daughter. This really disappointed me, especially since it was in 3D. Yet, I was certain that this film would be added to our library. When offered the chance to review the Toy Story 3: DVD & Blu-ray Hi-Def combo pack, I was excited. We seemed like the only family to not have already watched this film! Then, the movie arrived while I was at the BlissDom Canada conference – so hubby got to watch it with the girls for the first time. When I had called home and asked what they thought of it, all I heard was a *sigh*. Apparently the girls had watched it 3 times the day it arrived and once a day until I returned. Needless to say, they enjoy it! The day I returned, tired and jet-lagged, I suggested we have cereal for supper and relax to a movie. The girls ran for their Toy Story 3 and we settled in for a lovely evening. I can now say I finally seen Toy Story 3 and I {nor my hubby} are disappointed with this film, it’s hilarious. The twins are in great awe of this movie, I think since it stars all their beloved toys!

I used to be one that never watched bonus features which are included with DVD’s. Yet my kids always watch them, especially on Disney movies. If you were like me and never watched the bonus features – I urge you to do so. There’s a ton of information and a great sneak-peek at the making of the film.

  1. I will definitely be buying (or winning hehe) this for my grandkids for Christmas. Thanks for the info regarding the bonus scenes, we’ll be sure to check them out!

  2. Toy Story 3 was the VERY first movie we ever took our son out to the theatre to see and he was absolutely mesmerized the entire way through the movie. This is definitely a MUST BUY for everyone (with or without kids)!

  3. Clearly my kids are in the minority, but they (ages 4 and 6) were both really scared by Toy Story 3. We’re HUGE fans (especially of Toy Story 2), but this movie had parts that were too scary and intense for my guys.

    Aside from that it was a touching story and Spanish Buzz is hilarious.

    I always watch the bonus features! You get a lot of information you wouldn’t otherwise know.
