Toy Story 3, Cars 2, Rapunzel, and Pooh News..Oh my!


Former James Bond star Timothy Dalton is to voice a character in Toy Story 3 – a hedgehog toy named Mr Pricklepants.

There will also be a Bond-style secret agent character in the upcoming Cars 2 – an Aston Martin named Finn McMissile.

The announcements were made by Disney/Pixar chief John Lasseter at a central London presentation outlining the joint studios’ forthcoming animated slate.

It was also revealed that singer Mandy Moore will voice the lead in a cartoon based on the fairy tale Rapunzel.
Clad in one of his trademark Hawaiian shirts, Lasseter told an invited audience “there should be a red carpet outside” due to the amount of premieres he had in store.

These included a first-look glimpse of the new 3D version of Toy Story 2, due in cinemas early next year ahead of Toy Story 3’s release in summer 2010.

Clips from the latter revealed familiar characters Woody the Cowboy and Buzz Lightyear coping with new owners after being mistakenly discarded.

Other newcomers to the popular franchise include Ken, a male Barbie doll voiced by Batman star Michael Keaton.

Excerpts from Toy Story 3 were also shown, alongside the first 30 minutes of Disney’s next feature animation, The Princess and the Frog.

Plans for a new feature-length Winnie the Pooh film, due in cinemas in spring 2011, were also announced.
