Yet Another ‘Toy Story 3′ Hi-Res Still (I’m a Hugger!)

It turns out that when we raided the toy box earlier this week to bring you 20 new hi-res images from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3, we just didn’t dig deep enough. It turns out lucky number 21 features the gang when they first encounter Lotso and some of the many new friends at Sunnyside Daycare. You can even spot the Lightning McQueen toy at Woody’s feet.

Video: The Making of Disney/Pixar’s ‘Day & Night’ with New Footage

Day & NightAs a follow up to our new Toy Story 3 clip comes this additional Comcast exclusive, the making of Day & Night, the Teddy Newton short that plays before the feature film.

In the clip, the shorts’ creators attempt to explain just what it’s all about, but as a study aide, here’s the official synopsis: When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! Day and Night are frightened and suspicious of each other at first, and quickly get off on the wrong foot. But as they discover each other’s unique qualities–and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world–the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective.

Toy Story 3 Clip: ‘Rough Play’ (A Comcast Cable Exclusive)

LGM, meet Butt. Butt, meet LGM.Director Lee Unkrich introduces this clip which was released recently as an exclusive to Comcast Cable subscribers (although it was placed on the internet for all to see).

The clip, which features many bits and pieces that have been seen before in ads and the trailers for Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 (not to mention the Aflac ad), is an extended look at what happens when the gang, fresh off the box to Sunnyside Daycare, meet their new play hosts, in a tip o’ the hat to the old adage be careful what you wish for. It’s full of great visual gags, especially in regard to those poor LGMs — I’m particularly fond of the LGM + Slinky Dog formula myself.
