Toy Story Playland opened earlier this week at Disneyland Paris and the Resort has just published the following package video covering the grand opening. In addition to the ribbon cutting ceremony, the video includes time-lapse photography of the area’s construction (as well as the construction of Buzz, pictured left) and on-board videos of attractions such as RC Racer and Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop.
Amazon.com has now listed a ten disc set for the Toy Story 3 trilogy to be released on November 2, the same day the film is being released on its own. Don’t let the ten disc description fool you, however, it appears to just simply refer to the 3 disc Toy Story (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy), 3 disc Toy Story 2 (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy) and 4 disc Toy Story 3 (2 Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy).

With record-breaking box office tallies around the world, Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time taking in more than $920 million at the global box office to date. This weekend, the critically acclaimed Toy Story 3 is expected to become Disney’s second film to cross the $400 million domestic threshold and currently ranks as the 4th highest grossing film in company history globally.
As we previously announced, you can bring home the ‘#1 animated film of the year,’ Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on November 2, 2010. This is confirmed by Amazon.com which now lists the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy (not displayed here), Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD editions available for pre-order. Each of the Blu-ray sets consists of two Blu-ray discs.
Although it’s not listed as of yet, we do anticipate at least one more edition of the film to become available, that of the BD 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, but that one is curiously missing at this time. Reportedly there will be no 3D Blu-ray edition of the film as previously announced.
According to a photo of an in-store retail advertisement posted on The Digital Bits, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on November 2. Nothing has been officially confirmed, but it’s hard to debate with a photo (at least one that hasn’t been modified). This would place the film one week ahead of the rumored release date for Finding Nemo of November 9.
On the heels of the success and industry recognition in the U.S. for its innovative format with the recently launched “Toy Story 3” app as well as with its “Toy Story,” “Toy Story 2,” and “The Princess and the Frog” read-along apps, Disney Publishing Worldwide has created its first ever international versions of the “Toy Story” read-along app for iPad.
Launching on July 20th in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, the “Toy Story” apps will each feature songs and movie clips in French, German, Italian and Spanish. The app will have special promotional pricing for a limited time at €2.99 through August 31st; pricing will then shift to €6.99. The Disney-Pixar feature film Toy Story 3 will launch in Europe throughout late July.
Although the daily updates posted here at Stitch Kingdom of new items available at DisneyStore.com along with special deals posted daily via our @SK_TDSAlerts twitter account is usually enough, I felt there were a couple of new items and sales today that deserved their own special mention in case they got understandably overlooked with the dozens of other deals announced today.
Described as mini-beanies, these plushes feature many of the new characters introduced in Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3. Included in the collection are Dolly, Mr. Pricklepants, Twitch, Peas-in-a-Pod, Buttercup the unicorn, Trixie and Sparks who’s even articulated. They retail for $8.50 each or can be purchased for $14 for any combination of two of them.

What happens when more than 30 Disney and Pixar artists are asked to put their spin on the adorable little green men from the Toy Story trilogy? That’s what MINDstyle asked and what they got was the ‘Alien Invasion: When Aliens Meet Artists’ sculpture exhibition that recently opened in Hong Kong.
Using a basic mold of a Toy Story Alien, each artist put their spin on the film icon and MINDstyle has begun sharing just a few of them for those of us unable to attend the exhibition in person. Included are artists Anthony Whitfield, Ben Butcher, Bacon Tan, Brian Godlewski, Ben Su, Charlie Price, Chris Meeker, Dennis Cannon, Elaine Chang, Elena Eghtesady, Hyun Ju Park and Pat Au.
