Of all the beloved films in the Pixar catalog perhaps none is more loved than their fist film, Toy Story. The movie was not only a box office smash but it was critically acclaimed as well and went on to spawn an equally adored film, it's sequel, Toy Story 2. Now the toys are back for a whole new adventure in the long-awaited final chapter of the series, Toy Story 3, opening in theaters on June 18th. We recently had the rare opportunity to travel to Pixar Studios in Emeryville, California near San Francisco to see the new film, tour the incredible facilities and talk to some of the cast and crew about the upcoming movie. On hand that day were cast members Joan Cusack (Grosse Pointe Blank), Timothy Dalton (License to Kill), Estelle Harris (Seinfeld), Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords), John Ratzenberger (Cheers) and Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid), along with the film's director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson. We spoke to them about the new film, the new characters, the impact the franchise has had, the legacy of Pixar and the chances of a Toy Story 4.

Toy Story 3 welcomes Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the whole gang back to the big screen as the day the toys have dreaded for years is finally here ... Andy is going off to college! While he may be taking Woody with him, Buzz and the rest of the gang are headed for retirement to the attic. However a mix up sends Andy's old toys to a far worse place ... a day care center where toddlers abuse toys. Now it's up to Woody, to rescue his friends and return them to the attic before Andy leaves for college and is gone for good. In the process the toys learn some important lessons about friendship, growing up and adjusting to change. In addition to Woody and Buzz, all you favorite characters are back including Jessie (Joan Cusack), Rex (Wallace Shawn), Hamm (John Ratzenberger), Barbie (Jodi Benson) and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head (Don Rickles and Estelle Harris), while this time they are joined by new characters like Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear (Ned Beatty), Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton), Buttercup (Jeff Garlin), Trixie (Kristen Schaal), Stretch (Whoopi Goldberg) and of course, Ken (Michael Keaton).
