    Allen and Hanks on Board for Toy Story 3!- 3/10/07

    The Micechat news team has learned that Tim Allen and Tom Hanks, stars of both previous 'Toy Story' movies, have signed on for the third installment, due for release in 2009. They are the first voice talents to attach themselves to the project.

    Both actors are known to drive the box office numbers and their attachment to the animated film is sure to lend credibility to 'Toy Story 3', which has been on the drawing board for several years now. With John Lassetter giving the greenlight to the film, we hope it will have some of Pixar's famous charm, and not the air of some of Disney's more recent, 'Direct to DVD' sequels.

    More information on 'Toy Story 3' is available here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435761/

    This is awesome news. I'm glad to know that Tom Hank & Tim Allen will be onboard again.

    I think my only question for Toy Story 3 is; who will be the voice for "Slinky Dog" now?

    'Toy Story 3', 'Frog Princess' on tap

    'TS3' script is by 'Sunshine' Oscar winner Michael Arndt

    NEW YORK - The Walt Disney Co. is in production on "Toy Story 3," via its Pixar Animation Studios, and its first hand-drawn animation project in years, "The Frog Princess," via Disney Animation, John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Pixar and Disney Animation Studios, said Thursday.

    In an appearance during Disney's annual shareholder meeting in New Orleans, Lasseter said: "We are finally in production on 'Toy Story 3'," adding the film is scheduled to come out in 2010. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are back on board to voice Buzz Lightyear and Woody.

    The screenplay is by Michael Arndt, who just won the original screenplay Academy Award for "Little Miss Sunshine," according to Lasseter, who said: "We got a great story."

    He also announced - to much applause - that Disney Animation has started production on "Frog Princess," which goes back to hand-drawn animation and classic Disney fairytales. "Aladdin" and "Little Mermaid" creators Ron Clements and John Musker are the creative forces behind the animated musical, which "takes place entirely in New Orleans," features "the very first African American Disney princess" and includes a "soulful singing alligator," Lasseter said.

    In a special surprise, Randy Newman, who spent his childhood in New Orleans and is writing the music for the film, performed a song from "Frog Princess" to big applause.

    Discussing other animation projects that his team is currently working on, Lasseter mentioned Pixar's "Wall-E," written and directed by Andrew Stanton, the man behind "Finding Nemo." The film plays 700 years in the future when Wally is a little robot on Earth cleaning the trash-covered planet after the humans evacuated it.

    Lasseter also plugged Disney Animation's "American Dog," directed by Chris Williams, about a dog with superpowers who suddenly realizes he is only a TV character and must learn to live in the real world.

    Awww, yay. I wouldn't have been able to handle it if they'd tried to do a third without them - I loved the first two.

    Tim Allen, who partied with (Stevie) Wonder the night before, sat in the front row of the show alongside wife Jane. He confirmed what has been hinted at for years: In "a few months" he will be returning to voice his Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 3 for Disney. He said it's happening and "we're real excited. I've been talking to Tom (Hanks), but they won't let anyone see the script. All we know is we're in it. But Disney doesn't want us to say anymore about it."
