My Two-Cents on 'Toy Story 3'

I stumbled across the new trailer for Toy Story 3, and of course I had to check it out.

There isn't any doubt that the first Toy Story changed the face of animated features, and kicked off the dominance of Pixar, but I have to admit that I'm a little hesitant about this one.

I guess for me, the 10-plus delay since Toy Story 2 is going to hurt the film because too much time has elapsed. At least the creators are aware of this gap, and are using it as a plot device, but still.

Then there's the very good chance that this one might be better than the first two combined, although threequels have not been kind to most franchises (see Spider-Man and Shrek for examples). Hopefully this one will dodge that curse.

Sure, it'll be kinda nice to see Woody, Buzz, and the gang back, but let's just hope they can recapture that magic.
