As if Toy Story Mania at Disney’s Hollywood StudiosÂ wasn’t enough for Toy Story fans to handle in three dimensions, they may have all three films in the series popping at them in in 2009 and 2010, according to Variety:
The Mouse House is giving Pixarâ€™s â€œToy Storyâ€ franchise the 3-D treatment.
Studio will re-release â€œToy Storyâ€ in 3-D on Oct. 2, 2009., while its sequel will bow in the format on Feb. 12, 2010.
The two pics will lead up to the newest entry â€œToy Story 3,â€ which is set for June 18, 2010, and will also be shown in 3-D. Lee Unkrich (co-director of â€œToy Story 2â€) is helming.
Move is part of the Mouseâ€™s aggressive plans to release more of its animated, stop-motion or performance capture pics in the 3-D format. â€œThe Nightmare Before Christmas,â€ â€œChicken Little,â€ â€œMeet the Robinsonsâ€ were given the 3-D treatment, while its upcoming â€œFrankenweenieâ€ from Tim Burton, â€œBoltâ€ and â€œA Christmas Carolâ€ will also be shown in the format.
Studio said John Lasseter, who directed the first two â€œToy Storyâ€ pics, and serves as chief creative officer for Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, will oversee the creative side of the 3-D conversions for â€œToy Storyâ€ and â€œToy Story 2.â€
