Toy Story 3 (film)

Toy Story 3 (film) As Andy prepares to depart for college, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the rest of his loyal toys are troubled about their uncertain future. Andy packs Woody, his favorite toy, to take to college with him, but the rest are to be left behind. The toys land at the Sunnyside daycare center in a room full of untamed tots who cannot wait to get their sticky little fingers on these “new” toys. It’s pandemonium as the toys try to stay together, endeavoring to return to Andy’s house. Hindering their escape plans is a smooth-talking Ken doll, a Big Baby, and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear named Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear (called “Lotso”), who runs the center as a prison. Unimagined terrors await the toys as they are mistakenly picked up by a trash truck and delivered to a landfill. Directed by Lee Unkrich.
