DVD Review: Toy Story 3

Woody, Buzz and the stars of Toy Story 3

Release date

It's out now!

The Plot

Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the gang are back on the big screen as their owner, Andy, packs up his things to move to university.

The toys find themselves in day-care, a place filled with sticky fingered toddlers who won't play nicely and a bossy strawberry-scented teddy bear with his army of angry toys.

With no choice but to get out of the centre and head back to Andy's house the gang plan a great escape, which isn't as easy as it looks.

The stars

Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Slinky and all your other favourite Toy Story stars are back for the third film.

Woody wants to save the toys from going to daycare

Big Hollywood actor Tom Hanks and The Santa Clause star Tim Allen do the voices for Woody and Buzz. Whoopi Goldberg also joins the cast as the voice of Stretch, a massive glittery purple octopus!

Best bits

The whole film is action-packed and there weren't really any boring moments. There are a lot of parts where you are on the edge of your seat, especially when the toys decide to try to escape.

There are some really, really funny parts too. We loved the bit when Buzz thinks he's Spanish and starts doing some crazy dance moves. Mr Potato Head's tasty transformation is also amazing!

DVD Extras
Ken's dating tips

Ken's top dating tips!

The DVD has lots of extras like Buzz's space mission which shows Buzz hanging out with real-life astronauts!

It also has some funny clips with the rest of the Toy Story gang. Like this top tip from Ken!

For anyone who wants a sneak peak at what goes on behind the scenes to make the movie there are also interviews with the actors who provide the voices of the main characters.

Fave characters

On top of all of your old fave Toy Story characters, the gang meet a whole bunch of new toys on their long journey home.

Keep an eye out for Mr Pricklepants and his weird shorts...

Any weak bits?

Nope! There are some quite sad parts in the film so you might need your tissues at the ready.

Hit or miss?

A total hit!
