xanatha dowden, staff reporter

Toy Story 3 is a 2010 Fantasy/Comedy-drama directed by Lee Unkrich. The movie stars Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Casack, Wallace Shawn, Don Rickles, John Ratzenberger, Blake Clark, Estelle Harris, and Jeff Pidgeon.

This coming of age movie takes place as Andy is going off to college. When he has to pack up his room to move out he puts Jessie, Buzz, Mrs. and Mr. potato head, slinky, Rex, Hamm and the aliens a trash bag, in an attempt to put them in the attic. When Molly distracts Andy and they leave downstairs, his mother mistakes the bag for trash and takes it to the dumpster. Woody goes to save them and they all feel hurt. They decided to go to the donations box, where they are donated to Sunnyside Daycare. Woody tries to convince the gang that Andy was trying to put them in the attic. The others not believing him he leaves to return to Andy. After the toys realize how Sunnyside Daycare works, they want to return home but with the rules, will they be able to escape or say there forever?

Toy Story 3 was nominated for four Oscar awards, winning 1 Best Animation Feature. It was nominated for Best Picture, best-adapted screenplay, and best sound editing. It also got a Special Achievement Academy Award, PGA Special Award of Merit and Annie Award for Best Individual Achievement: Production Design.

Toy Story 3 soundtrack contains 17 songs, from the first toy stories heartfelt “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” to “So Long”. The whole track is by Randy Newman with some featuring others. The soundtrack complements the movie, bringing tears to our eyes as the toys’ journey come to an end.

I recommend this movie to everyone. It’s a very put together family movie, and children and adults may cry for sure. The coming of age for Andy and the toys journey pull on your heartstrings. You can watch this movie on Hulu and Netflix. I recommend you to watch the two other movies before it. Toy Story 4 is scheduled to come out later this year.
