"It's Toy Hell," Says Toy Story 3 Director

by |

Summary

Expectations don't come much higher than those surrounding this week's 'Toy Story 3'. Arriving 11 years after 1999's 'Toy Story 2' upped both the box office and creative ante of the 1995 original, Pixar's threequel faces the daunting challenge of matching two predecessors that have a combined worldwide gross of $847 million and unparalleled critical praise (parts one and two currently sit at 100% "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes). More importantly, the films endure as part of audiences' collective experiences; people love this franchise, and it seems only the foolhardy would try and revisit it so many years later. Then again, this is Pixar we're talking about -- if anyone's going to break the curse of the part three, these guys probably have the best shot. RT spent some time with 'Toy Story 3' director Lee Unkrich-stepping into the hot seat having co-directed part two-and asked him what it was like to return to the series.Back to Article
