LAS VEGAS, March 31 — Moviegoers are in for twice the fun and triple the thrills as The Walt Disney Studios prepares to debut the Disney Digital 3D(TM) versions of Disney-Pixar’s beloved animated features – “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2″ – during a special limited engagement starting on October 2, 2009, it was announced today by Mark Zoradi, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Group.
This extraordinary double feature, taking the latest advances in digital 3D technology “to infinity and beyond,” will play exclusively in 3D. “Toy Story,” the industry’s first ever computer-animated feature and the first feature released by Pixar Animation Studios in 1995, and “Toy Story 2,” the critically acclaimed sequel that debuted in 1999, were both directed by Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker John Lasseter. Both films have been meticulously re-rendered in 3D from the original digital files using the latest state-of-the-art technology.

Disney has opted to not renew its licensing agreement with MEGA Brands (the MEGA Bloks series covers Winnie the Pooh, Cinderella, Pirates of the Caribbean, Cars, et al) in favor of a new agreement with LEGO. Announced for 2010 will be LEGO sets for Toy Story, Cars and Prince of Persia. The wide appeal of the collection has LEGO committed to Toy Story products in both the LEGO DUPLO (large bricks for the toddler set) and the more recognizable LEGO Brick System lines, a product decision that LEGO rarely makes.
