Occasionally, we’ll hear stories about people who have done a shot for shot remake of their favorite movie, but most of those are live action flicks. Jonason Pauley decided to gone one further by taking an animated movie, and turn it into a live action feature. The movie in questions is Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story.
Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the rest of the gang lead readers to infinity and beyond as Marvel and Disney Publishing debut TOY STORY #1 (of 4). Featuring Toy Story characters from the Disney-Pixar films, Toy Story #1 delivers entirely new content and stories to comic fans.
Here’s a commercial for Mattel’s Toy Story Command Center that features some cool stop motion animation using the actual toys.
I must not let The Boy see this, or he will want everything in the commercial for the upcoming holiday season.
When Cars 2 arrives in theaters this summer, there will be an all new Toy Story short that goes along with it.
Set in new owner Bonnie’s bedroom, “Hawaiian Vacation” features Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) and Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the rest of the favorite “Toy Story 3” toys as they create the ultimate Hawaiian vacation for Ken (voice of Michael Keaton) and Barbie (voice of Jodi Benson). It seems Ken badly miscalculated their travel arrangements, so the gang has to create a dream getaway in Bonnie’s Midwestern bedroom—in the middle of winter. “Hawaiian Vacation” also features the voices of Joan Cusack, Wallace Shawn, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, Blake Clark, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Kristen Schaal, Jeff Garlin and John Ratzenberger.
Take the jump for a sneak peek of the short, along with still images from Disney.

Having been a kid during the ’90s, Toy Story is up there with Power Rangers and Pokemon as an integral part of my childhood, and my love for the series has only been heightened by the latest film. In that spirit, I couldn’t resist taking a look at the latest installment of the Toy Story comic book series.
Given that Inception has quickly become the talk about and must see movie of the summer, it seems only natural that people would come up with ways to mix the movie with others out there. Here’s what happens when Fan Film meets Inception meets Toy Story 3.

BOOM! Studios sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek.
While it is really too early to see if Pixar/Disney will even attempt another full length Toy Story movie, when Cars 2 arrives in theaters in 2011, it could include a Toy Story short, according to director Lee Unkrich.
“Well, I really tried my best to end the story of Andy and his toys and bring that story to a close in a really nice way at the end of this film. That being said, we know that people love the characters, love Woody and Buzz, and would hate to say good-bye to them completely. I don’t know that there would ever be a [Toy Story] 4. We don’t have any plans for one — but we are trying to find ways to keep the characters alive. We have announced we’re going to do a short film in front of Cars 2 that uses the Toy Story characters. We’re going to keep them alive; they’re not going away forever.”
Unfortunately, an irate three-year-old kept me from seeing the last 20 minutes of the movie, but if it closes as nicely as everyone says it did, the only way we’ll see more Toy Story movies is through the shorts programs Pixar has done with franchises like Cars and the Mater’s Tall Tales series.
Toy Story 3 arrives June 18, 2010, and Disney sent yet another sneak peek of the movie that looks to be a great concluding chapter to the series.
