Toy Story 3
In anxious anticipation for Toy Story 4, which comes at on the feast of John the Baptist (look it up), we went back in time to see how the saga unfolded in Toy Story 3.
More than 15 years after Woody got shelved by Buzz and the world met Mr. Potato head and Rex, the gang is back for another installment of their adventures. Now ready to go to college, Andy must decide what to do with his toys. Making their way to Sunnyside Daycare Center seems like heaven at first, but the friends quickly realize their heaven is more like hell. A movie that makes parents cry and kids cringe (the incinerator scene is a bit tough for younger viewers), Toy Story 3 is a great commentary on love, friendship, and letting go.
Our family had a great conversation about what happens when things turn out differently than expected and, when it does, who we want by our side. Do yourself a favor this weekend and enjoy the adventures of the Toy Story gang before the next in the series hits theaters in June.
