    Disney to re-release Pixar franchise

    The Mouse House is giving Pixar’s “Toy Story” franchise the 3-D treatment.

    Studio will re-release “Toy Story” in 3-D on Oct. 2, 2009., while its sequel will bow in the format on Feb. 12, 2010.

    The two pics will lead up to the newest entry “Toy Story 3,” which is set for June 18, 2010, and will also be shown in 3-D. Lee Unkrich (co-director of “Toy Story 2”) is helming.

    Move is part of the Mouse’s aggressive plans to release more of its animated, stop-motion or performance capture pics in the 3-D format. “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Chicken Little,” “Meet the Robinsons” were given the 3-D treatment, while its upcoming “Frankenweenie” from Tim Burton, “Bolt” and “A Christmas Carol” will also be shown in the format.

    Studio said John Lasseter, who directed the first two “Toy Story” pics, and serves as chief creative officer for Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, will oversee the creative side of the 3-D conversions for “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2.”

    I saw this also but just today on Zap2It News. Sounds good to me.

    In anticipation of the release of "Toy Story 3" in 2010, Pixar has announced plans to rerelease the franchise's first two films back into theaters.

    With Disney-Pixar's "Toy Story 3" being produced in 3-D under the direction of studio vet Lee Unkrich, "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2" will be converted into 3-D as well.

    "We are committed to bringing moviegoers the best and most exciting 3-D movie experience, and we think they're going to love seeing Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and all the wonderful 'Toy Story' cast of characters in an eye popping and dazzling way," says Dick Cook, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. "John Lasseter and the animation team are putting all their passion and hard work into making this the greatest 3-D experience yet, and we're excited to share their efforts with audiences everywhere."

    The plan is to bring "Toy Story" out in Disney Digital 3-D on Oct. 2, 2009, followed by the Feb. 12, 2010 release of "Toy Story 3." The long-anticipated "Toy Story 3" will open on June 18, 2010.

    "The 'Toy Story' films and characters will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we're so excited to be bringing this landmark film back for audiences to enjoy in a whole new way thanks to the latest in 3-D technology," says John Lasseter, director on the first two "Toy Story" films and chief creative officer for Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. "I am sure that this is going to be nothing short of fantastic and people are going to be blown away by the experience. With 'Toy Story 3' shaping up to be another great adventure for Buzz, Woody and the gang from Andy's room, we thought it would be great to let audiences experience the first two films all over again and in a brand new way. 3-D offers lots of great new possibilities for the art of animation and we will continue to use this new technology to tell our stories in the best possible way."

    In order to release "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2" in 3-D, the original technical elements on both films will be essentially rebuilt.

    First released in 1995, "Toy Story" made more than $360 million worldwide (per BoxOfficeMojo). The 1999 sequel made more than $485 million worldwide.

    Meh. I don't think I need to see the first two again, at least not PAY to see them again.
