Timothy Dalton Joins TOY STORY 3?? Plus More Plot Details Revealed...

Published at: Sept. 10, 2009, 12:02 p.m. CST

Merrick here...
JoBlo has a bit of information about TOY STORY 3, some of which is gleaned from comments made by John Lassater during a recent animation thingie overseas. Timothy Dalton will voice Mr. Pricklepants in TS3; his character is described as being "a thespian hedgehog toy". Apparently, an as-yet-unreleased trailer for the film has provided more insight to what the movie's actually about. We've already heard many indications that TOY STORY 3 would carry something of an emotional charge (a la the first thirty minutes of UP) - the holocuastic plot described below supports this notion.

SPOILERS!!!



plot details were revealed at the conference that I certainly hadn’t heard thus far. Supposedly the catalyst to set things in motion is that the toys are thrown away by Andy’s mom after he heads off to college, and eventually they end up at a day care center where they’re abused by toddlers. They must band together (with some new toys, thespian hedgehogs presumably included) to figure out a way escape, and hopefully find a new (or old) owner.

...says JoBlo HERE, where you can find a few more details. TOY STORY 3 is scheduled to hit theaters next Summer, after a 3-D re-release of the first two films (starting later this year).

    Losing the gay couple angle?

    by Mgmax

    I mean Toy Story was always really about a gay couple fighting over the affection of their adopted son-- one an astronaut, one a cowboy, kind of like the Village People-- but now they're running a day care center? Doesn't seem to have the same emotional charge that all America responded to, of the difficulty of being a gay couple in America today.

    DANGER MOUSE!!!

    by SachMan

    Sorry just could not help but aggree that Danger Mouse would be an AWSOME idea, but I`d have to disagree with Timothy Dalton as the Voice cos David Jason IS Danger Mouse and will always be Danger Mouse. Saying that I`ve Never seen David Jason in a Hollywood movie EVER and i really think that as one of Britans GREATEST and most comedic and Iconic actors when is his time gonna come? I mean the Guy has graced British TV with Great Characters such as Del Boy From Only Fools and Horeses and Detecive Frost, and lets not forget Open all hours and the Terry Prattchett adaptations. I`ve been waiting to trow his name in there coz Like Hughe Lurie and Atkinson (Mr Bean) he is well up there with British talent and I feel US Casting Director have well overlooked him. DAVID JASON DANGER MOUSE HAVE IT!!!! P.S Tim Dalton MOST UNDERRATED BOND EVER!!! LIVING DAYLIGHT AND LICENCE TO KILL PISS ON ANY BOND FILM THAT HAS COME OUT IN THE LAST 12 YRS, BOND DIED WITH GOLDENEYE AS GOLDENEYE WAS THE LAST TRUE BOND. (Poor Pierce Good actor for the part but given such rubbish material after that film, I had hoped he had one more in him to go out with a bang)

    Six Demon Bag...Not sure that was ever the point...

    by DreadPirateRoberts

    I don't remember it ever being implied that they would always be together and never forgotten. As a matter of fact, in the second film Woody and Buzz argue about exactly this point, and it is put out there that the future is uncertain for a toy, but being a toy in the present is what they are all about and they will cross the bridge of "what about when Andy grows up" in the future when it comes. Well, it's come.

  • Sept. 10, 2009, 1:48 p.m. CST

    That is a great premise!

    by Royston Lodge

    Toys don't stay together once the kid grows up. They're sold at garage sales, auctioned off on eBay, and (as per the above synopsis) donated to Goodwill where they end up at daycares and/or doctors' office waiting rooms.<p> That being said, the inevitable happy ending where all the toys get to stay together in the care of a new or old owner is silly.<p> Once toys are given away, the game's up. They're gonna be dispersed to the four corners of the toy world.<p> The only way they'd stay together would be if their owner is a total geek who packs them up and stores them in the attic (away from mother's meddling hands) when he goes away to college, with the intention of bringing them out of retirement once he's got a bitchin' apartment of his own!

    Lone Fox is right

    by Drsambeckett1984

    In many ways Dalton played Bond better than anyone else, he was the James Bond that Ian Flemming envisioned, unlike Craig who people seem to think is most like the bond of the novels, except Craig is just a thug who kills, not exactly a sophisticated spy!

  • Sept. 10, 2009, 3:21 p.m. CST

    I think Craig is very much like the literary Bond.

    by Royston Lodge

    I object to the assertion that Craig's Bond is too much of a thug compared to the literary Bond.<p> From my readins, the literary Bond is first-and-foremost an assasin. This comes out especially in the For Your Eyes Only short stories. The first few paragraphs of From A View To A Kill, where Bond's internal monologue is about the comparative merits of Parisian prostitutes compared to prostitures in other cities, does not strike the reader as particularly sophisticated. It's a shock just to imagine Bond ever needing to hire a prostitute to get his rocks off!<p> When sophistication is called for, Craig's Bond certainly lives up to the standard set by the literary Bond. Craig wears his tuxedo well, and looks super-cool behind the wheel of an Aston Martin.<p> If anything, I think Dalton's Bond was MORE hard-boiled than the literary Bond. Dalton's Bond was still an archtypical "hard-boiled action hero with honour". The literary Bond is way LESS honourable than Dalton's Bond was. The literary Bond can also be quite sloppy at times, falling for obvious traps and getting the shit kicked out of him. Live And Let Die has some good examples.

    That's great news about Timothy Dalton taking over as The Master in Dr Who. I have a feeling that Stephen Moffat's version of Doctor Who is going to be considerably darker and more adult. Even the new sidekick looks like she belongs in the seventies.

    by daggor

    After hearing about the "at a day care" plotline, I wasn't too happy. Andy would never give away Buzz and Woody. Andy's mom wouldn't intentionally either, would she? She refused to sell Woody at the yard sale because he was a "family toy." I'm hoping it's just another mix-up and they find Andy eventually. Or Sid Phillips hacks Andy's mom to bits.

    Dalton isn't confirmed as The Master, AFAIK

    by Royston Lodge

    As far as any of the articles I've read go, Timothy Dalton will indeed appear in Doctor Who, but it's not confirmed he's playing The Master. In the leaked photo he's wearing Time Lord robes, hinting that he might be a member of the High Council. Does that mean that Gallifrey still exists, or just that a High Council member managed to survive the war?<p> Who knows?<p> I doubt he's the next iteration of The Master, since that would mean The Master is getting older as he regenerates, which is contrary to how it's worked in the past.

    I still think Dalton will be the master

    by Drsambeckett1984

    If you have heard Daltons dialogue from ' the end of time' it certainly sounds like the Master to me. With the Doctor being so young when he regenerates into Matt Smith it makes sense to make the Master older. In the subject Of Bond, I agree in the books he is foremost an assasin, however he has an elegance, a mass of snobbery Craig isn't capable of. He may be arrogant in the role, but the literary 007 was never as bullish.

    I prefer the original idea

    by supertoyslast

    On the Ultimate Toy Box DVD set, Lasseter said that an idea they were saving for a possible third film was that Andy would grow up and the toys would have to face the fate off all playthings - being outgrown and discarded. But, in the end, they would be donated to a kindergarten where there would always be new children who would fulfil their purpose - to be played with. This being the toy version of heaven, I thought this would be a suitable end. The day care centre turning out to be hell for toys is just Tin Toy writ large and (at first sight) seems less satisfying. Surely if the toys search for a new owner they will be condemned to repeat the same fate of being outgrown?

  • Sept. 10, 2009, 5:22 p.m. CST

    This 'apocalypitc' storyline troubles me a bit

    by ol' painless

    It turns Andy into everything Woody feared Andy would become in TOY STORY 2: an uncaring, fickle little jerk who gets rid of the toys that love him on a whim. And quite franly, it turns his mother into a bit of a monster. Love the name "Mr Pricklepants", though.

    by Royston Lodge

    ...a bittersweet ending.<p>The toys are donated to charity, and they all get split up, which is sad.<p> But, they all go to different homes and are given new life when the disadvantaged boys and girls they end up with play with them. Yay!<p> Which would be a great life lesson about how growing up is bittersweet. You win some and you lose some.<p> Sha la la la!<p> Sit UBU sit. Good dog.<p> Woof!

    With respect, but you are out of your ever-lovin' MINDS. I cannot stand by and see one of the greatest kids movies ever made to be denigrated in such a casual fashion. To TB'ers who do, I urge you to watch it again, then come back here and tell me WHY you hate it. Please find a gap in the armour of this perfect film, if you dare. Prepare to be proven wrong, though.

    Dalton should BE the new Dr Who !!!!!!

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Screw being a guest star. I've been saying this for months. They should have HIRED Dalton to BE the new Doctor Who. How fucking cool would THAT have been? You'd get someone with some star power in the role (to follow up on the huge success than Tennant has been) and we'd get a Doctor that is older, wiser and more like the Pertwee era. So it would have made for great casting and given all-new life to the series.<p>Not to mention the new guy looks like ass. Seriously, I have yet to see one publicity still of Matt Smith where he doesn't look horrible. He's about as UN-leading man as you can get.

    Best Bond ever

    Dalton was superb as a dry humorless James Bond in the two films he made , and guess what- he got savaged by the critics for his portrayal, because the public wanted a wise cracking smartass, not a gritty no-nonsense agent. Guess what , years later we get Daniel Craig ,with all the personality of a boiled potato , but playing Bond as a dry humorless machine and all of a sudden Bond Is back ! Dalton was great in Flash Gordon too as the Prince , not to mention his excellent store manager in Hot Fuzz.

    Exactly what I thought would happen...

    by longawayy

    Asked my four year old if he wanted to see a new Woody & Buzz movie. Excited, "Yessss!" "What if Andy grew up, and his mom gave the toys away?" "Oh no! Why would she do that, Dad?" "But they go to stay at a daycare." "Mine?" "Not yours, but similar to yours." "Yay! Then what happens?" "Well... the little boys and girls play very hard with them, and the toys don't like it, so they try to leave and find a new owner who will love them like Andy." *sniffle* "What's wrong?" *sobbing starts* "My toys at school are going to run away?!" "No, they're not. It's just a movie, buddy." "YES THEY WILL! WE PLAY HARD DADDY!" "Come on, relax. It's ju..." "DAD! WE HAVE WOODY AND BUZZ AND JESSIE AT OUR SCHOOL! THEY WANT TO LEAVE!" Yeah, way to traumatize your true target audience.

    Pixar owes me money!

    by Orionsangels

    Minus the day care center where they’re abused by toddlers plot. I came up with the story for Toy Story 3 on a talkback. Years ago. One of the Pixar writers must have read the talkback and read my post. I typed and I quote myself - "The story of Toy Story 3 should be that Andy out grows his toys and the toys must now find a new owner." This was around the time Toy Story 2 was out. Since then I would mention it ever now and then on talkbacks. I guess some will say, that story is obvious. Maybe, but at the time of Toy Story 2. I was only one talking about that plot for Toy Story 3.

    Living Daylights = one of BEST Bonds ever

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Maybe I'm being too nostalgic here (or showing my age), but I grew up loving the Bond movies. I remember seeing LIVE AND LET DIE in the theater, as Moore assumed the role and it was great. But by the time he made VIEW TO A KILL is was just so obvious...in fact, it was flat out painfully obvious...that age had finally caught up with him. That movie even has some of the worst editing cuts when it goes back and forth between Moore and a clearly much younger stuntman (for example during the fight scene that takes place in Tanya Robert's mansion). Not to mention, since the producers continually felt obligated to keep Lois Maxwell too, her obvious age likewise screamed "time to replace me" as well.<p>With that in mind, to this day, I can still remember seeing THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS on opening weekend with a friend, who was another big Bond fan. And as geeky as it sounds, I will always remember sitting in the theater watching that opening sequence and when it gets to the part where the one double O agent falls to his death and then Dalton suddenly reacts and turns to the camera and we see his face for the first time, I remember sitting there and thinking "Holy shit! It's a young James Bond!" A second later, Dalton hops over some rocks to run over to the body and I thought "Holy shit! It's a Bond who can actually move around!"<p>Dalton is vastly underrated as a Bond. I'm in the camp that believes if he had only been given a third outting...if he had only done a more traditional Bond film, where he fights Blofeld and goes up against some giant organization with a secret base and all that kind of cool shit...he could've had a longer and more successful run. Even as it is, just based around LIVING DAYLIGHTS, I think he was perfect for the role.

    NightArrows: "Dalton was a fucking pansy"

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Daniel Craig was 38 when he debuted in CASINO ROYALE, meanwhile Dalton was 43 in LIVING DAYLIGHTS. Even being the older and over 40 guy, not only would Dalton (in his DAYLIGHTS prime) have kicked Craig's ass in all sorts of major bitchslapping ways, but given that Dalton was also waaaaay better looking and smoother, Dalton would have easily walked away with the girl too. And that is that.

    Dalton DID deserve a third 007 movie

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Living Daylights IS one of the best post-Connery Bonds (and featuring the last John Barry score, to boot), and while License To Kill played more like a blend of Scarface and an 80's Joel Silver action flick, it featured a TON of bits taken directly from Ian Fleming (like the great "He disagreed with something that ate him" scene and subsequescent revenge for the mauled Felix Leiter from the Live & Let Die novel) and some excellent stunt work, not to mention one of Benicio Del Toro's first screen roles. Had Dalton gotten a third film around 1991, he'd be more fondly remembered today. <BR><BR>As for Toy Story 3, the idea of the toys finding "toy heaven" at a day care always struck me as a wonderful iea to end the series. For everyone claoring for Andy to keep his toys forever, wouldn't that just make him into the Wayne Knight toy collector from Toy Story 2, i.e. the overweight, middle-aged nerd obsessed with keeping his childhood playthings preserved in "mint condition" instead of actually, y'know, PLAYING with them? I'm sorry, but having a 20-something Andy do that to Buzz, Woody and the gang would actually be SADDER than simply outgrowing them.

    If a little TOO serious. It was just bad timing, following years of Moore's jokey Bond. <p> Appartently Dalton was offered the role before Lazenby, but turned it down because he was too young. Imagine how different the next 20 odd years of Bond movies might have been! <p> Not to hate on Roger Moore, who actually comes across as self-depractaing & a pretty cool guy, but I'd rather have seen a young Dalton take over.

    I thought Dalton was a good Bond

    by Continentalop

    I just thought the movies sucked. If you are truly going to go in a new direction with Bond and tell the actor to play him as a much more ruthless character, don't put him in the same old Bond plots. It would be like telling Heath Ledger to play his version of the Joker and then stick in him in a Schumacher Batman, it is incongruent. Sure License to Kill had a lot of Fleming moments in there, but the overall tone of the film was still to close to the Moore and preceding Bonds. If you are going in a new direction, do so. Don't only go half way or else you make some kind of weird hybrid (and as we all know from Sci-Fi, weird hybrids usually turn out to be monstrosities).

    Pixar were forced to make Toy Story 3 by Disney Nazis.

    by TheManWhoCan

    Back in the days of the original Toy Story Pixar had to give Disney the rights to the Toy Story Characters as well as the distribution rights. Because Pixar was starting out in the feature film business and needed the money, kind of like a standard record contract (the record producers usually keep the rights to a bands songs from the first album). They had a “gentleman’s agreement” that Pixar would only make a sequel if they thought it felt right. Disney somehow persuaded them to make TS2, which was originally meant for direct to video until all the people involved knew they were onto a winner and decided to go ahead with a theatrical release. I saw John Lasseter years ago at an animation talk and premier of TS2 and he explained this so called “gentleman’s agreement” between Pixar and Disney and went on to say that a third movie would be highly unlikely because sequels usually suck and it would ruin and negate the previous movies. Disney however had other ideas and at the end of the day owned the rights to Woody, Buzz and the gang and after begging and begging Pixar to make another sequel decided to play dirty. They set up an animation department called Circle 7 and began production on there own, Pixar-free version of TS3. They even released a poster! Seriously, It can be found on the Internet. The (crappy) story involved a defective Buzz being recalled to a factory to be fixed or something. (It sounded like a terrible premise). Pixar were like “what the hell?” Disney replied “look were making this movie with or without you, so if you don’t want our version to go ahead just agree to make another sequel and we’ll scrap Circle 7’s version”. Pixar reluctantly agreed and company Circle 7 was scrapped. (I kind of feel sorry for the workers/pawns). I think Pixar will try there very best in making TS3 a great movie but if it isn’t you cant really blame them; they never wanted to do it in the first place. Although they seem to have carte blanche when it comes to voice actors, which is good. Cant wait to see it though, I liked the teaser trailer but that may just be the nostalgia kicking in, I love those little guys!

    The Bond of the books....

    ... is a chain-smoking, hard drinking, cold blooded assasin, asshole, (albeit a somewaht suave one) who'd as soon shoot you as look at you. None of the actors' portrayals that have played him (Roger Moore's 'elegant' Bond being the furthest out) has been very close to the character that Fleming wrote, but the Dalton version is the best IMO. Craig's is probably the closest in temperment but his take is bit over the top. The Bond of the books was nothing if not cool.

    by AsimovLives

    It's great to see that you also have a lot of love for Timothy Dalton as James Bond. He was a great bond indeed. And yes, The Living Daylights is terribly underated as a Bond movie. I really don't like John Glenn much as a Bond director, but he was in a state of grace in Living Daylights.<br><br>I don't know if you are of the same age as me, but if you were in your late teens back in the day when The Living Daylights was released, that movie looked like what Casino Roayle looks recently:like a breath of fresh air, and a great reinvention of the Bond formula. Also, it was the first time i had ever seen Bond as really a hired killer. Dalton totally sold the idea that behind the suave facade, this guy could put a cap in your head just for looking him the wrong way, and he would had no pains of conscience about it. It was the very first time when i saw Bond as a real bad ass.<br><br>But i don't think that Living Daylights was the last great Bond movie, not even of the "classic" era. I would say that GoldenEye is the last great Bond movie before Casino Royale and the Daniel Craig reinvention.

What can I say? <p> But when I read that you also "hated" TS2, I reckoned you must be adopting a contrarian position for the sake of shits and giggles or something, simply because I've never heard ANYONE say such things about either of these films. <p> If you actually do know a bit about cinematic story structures, and sincerely think P's L and TS2 are crap, then that's just fine with me - to each his own. I don't agree with you, but who cares? They're just movies man. <p> Look, it's really pretty simple. If you savage films that are pretty much universally acclaimed (especially on THESE boards) someone is bound to question your judgment and call you out. It just happened to be me this time. Surely I'm not the first person to challenge your opinion of a film(?) <p> I think lots of things other people like a lot are crap, and pretty much expect to be called out when I say so to the right/wrong person. <p> Maybe you could try reinforcing your position with valid observations instead of just getting pissed and dismissing someone when they disagree with you.

Yes, the grittiness of LTK is welcomed, but it's so bad it had to be made at the expense of losing some of that Bond identity that serves the franchise so well. Quantum Of Solace did the same mistake.<br<<br>As for Rocketeer, the true classic thing in that movie is Jennifer Connelly's hotness.

    Creature Features can move people....

    by TheWaqman

    I just think that after observing all of Guillermo's films it seems like they are almost just excuses for him to throw in a bunch of cool monster ideas. I never got much out of Pan's Labyrinth really. And it was well known that the monster he tossed in Hellboy 2 was only thrown in because it was scrapped from PL. Which is kind of sad in a way. It's similar to what James Cameron is doing with Avatar where they are just making movies to benefit their self-indulgence. James Cameron with his tech and Guillermo with his monsters. I seriously only think he took the directorial role for the Hobbit so he could work on the dragon. Nothing wrong with that, I just don't like him very much. And my inner fanboy is lashing out at him because I love LOTR, and I don't want the Hobbit to turn into another Guillermo film (or what I think of a Guillermo film).

    You also must admit, a Bond movie lives or dies by the quality of it's villain. And Robert Davi's Franz Sanchez is up there with the best of them, he sneers and hams sure, but you find it hard to hate him because he's so fudging cool! I'd love to see a Rocketeer sequel with Pierce Brosnan as the bad guy!!!!

    Outbust forgiven lol <p>For me, Toy Story 2 is like the great sequels. The set up was done in 1, so they could just go with the story in 2. And some for reason that ticked all the boxes for me. The opening with the dachshound puppy is fantastic, and the vadar/luke wink with Buzz and the bad guy was soe perfectly timed. I think it maybe Pixars funniest film for me.

    Pragmatic, & "nice and crystal clear". I still disagree about GdT's merits as a film maker. But now that you've stated your gripes with his work, and the reasons for your concern over his involvement with "The Hobbit", succintly, and as an opinion, rather than as 'the undisputable' truth, with no explanation beyond your personal interpretation, I can understand where you're coming from. <p> You and I should get along just fine from now on. Or as B. Baggins might say (when he's suffering from a wicked cold after floating down the river on a freakin' wine barrel): "Thag you very buch".
