One of the hardest things for filmmakers to accomplish is to keep a series new and fresh for a full trilogy and not lose any originality or entertainment. Many writers get lazy or simply run out of material for a third film with reoccurring characters. This difficult task has been made to look simple by the creators of Toy Story 3.

Woody and his friends attempt to cope with their owner's departure for college and their new home in a daycare center. The toys continue to try to find their place in the world to once again make their owner, or other children, happy. Many fans of the series have wondered what would happen when their owner would outgrow the group of toys and what they would do. This is explained in Toy Story 3 and it also contains the subplot of being in the daycare and if it's for the best. The writing is fantastic. The screenplay is filled with clever, witty, and smart dialogue that will make all ages laugh.

The voice actors of all the reoccurring characters have returned for another sequel. There shouldn't be any surprise that the voice acting is phenomenal and will make the audience completely forget that it's an animated film that's being screened.

The technology that was used in the first two Toy Story films is the same as in the third. The only difference is that characters appear to have more detail in the designs, otherwise, it's the same. Who says new is always better? The animation used in Toy Story 3 is great and never becomes stale.

Once again, Pixar doesn't disappoint. Everything from the writing and voice acting to the animation is as close to perfection as one can get. Some parents may find the topics of the film a bit dark, going from abandonment to strong politics. Although, it's nothing that makes it inappropriate for children. The ending is extremely satisfying for the end of the series, while still being incredibly sad. Toy Story 3 is one of those few films that is just as good as the rest of the series and is highly recommended as a film with an incredible amount of replay value.
