    (More pictures at parkablogs.com) Let me say this first, if you haven't watch the movie, this book is going to be a major plot spoiler. - It's great to be back in the world of Toy Story. It's like meeting old friends with that feeling of nostalgia. This book has 176 pages, 16 more pages that previous Pixar art books. You'll see new toys, colour scripts, storyboards, sculptures, sketches and some photographs. Some pieces of art from Toy Story 2 were also included.

You'll see new toys, colour scripts, storyboards, sculptures, sketches and some photographs. Some pieces of art from Toy Story 2 were also included. Many pieces of art are digitally created, which is how it's done these days. It doesn't take away anything though, the art is still good. Colour studies from Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo are beautiful, just like the one on the cover. And so are all the art from other artists. The writeup is marvelous. There so much more to read compared to previous Pixar art books. I can see Author Charles Soloman has talked to a lot of people and done some good research. The commentary is filled with lots of quotes from the staff, interesting stories and insight into Toy Story. You'll read about the legacy of Toy Story, the updates to this movie, story sequences, the characters and other details right down to how Andy's neighbour decorates his lawn. For the most part, the commentary is really about the plot and the characters. Nuances and deliberations to every story decisions are explained. Many of the ideas translated to screen are actually from personal life experiences. This film is clearly a piece of love for everyone who worked on it and you'll feel that love and level of commitment on every page you read. I'm pretty sure this is going to be one of Pixar's most touching film to date. Highly recommended. It's a great book.

Although its impossible not to briefly discuss/show the design work on the previous two films, for the most part the book focuses on new characters and locations that were unique to the third film. Being an animated movie, there was nothing "filmed" - that means that every single thing you see in the frame (and I mean every little detail in the background) was intentionally created by the film's artists and animators. Pixar is known for their quality, and it shows here. Looking through the book, you can see the great level of care and detail that the artists put into each character, location, and object. Includes the following: - Storyboards - Sample of the film's Color Script - Andy's house/room - Sketches & Design of key characters (Lotso, Barbie & Ken, etc) - Sunnyside Daycare - environment & toy designs - Final CG renders of main characters

    This book was a joy to read! It had quite a lot of text, but the text was very interesting to read, especially if you are interested in art and animation, like I am, or you just want to know how the characters have developed since the previous "Toy Story" movies. I loved the fact that this book explained in so much detail about the making of the film, aswell as showing some great concept art from the Pixar artists. There is also an inmpressive fold-out colourscript in this book, which I loved lo This book was a joy to read!

There is also an inmpressive fold-out colourscript in this book, which I loved looking at. The book has a lot of quotes and personal opinions in it, making the book realistic and personal. If you enjoyed Toy Story 3, and don't mind reading a lot of text, this would be the book for you!

    The Pixar and Disney "Art of..." books are probably the most fun making-of style film book series currently being released. Seeing the developmental and concept art is always a treat, and the text of the books has continued to improve as the series has gone on. 2010's "Art of..." books were great examples of this, as "The Art of Toy Story 3" includes the best writing of the series so far, while "The Art of Tangled" is the most visually impressive.

    #ChristmasBookTubeAThon: Challenge #1 - Read a book with red and green on the cover. Wow! I learned so much about the making of this movie and even the hidden gems like the hidden Totoro, Andy's last name is Dabis, and all of the work that was put into the film to update the look of characters and setting without changing too much. #ChristmasBookTubeAThon: Challenge #1 - Read a book with red and green on the cover.

    Solomon does a worthy job of writing about the process of making Toy Story 3 but it's really the artwork that makes this book shine. From thumbnail sketches to the gatefold color keys, there is always something to gawk at and appreciate in each page. The interviews are insightful and add a good counterpoint to the artwork but sometimes they feel a bit disjointed and out of place.

    Very beautiful book, obviously. I felt like there was more text than usual in "Art of" books, which was welcome - it was interesting to see the subtle changes in the characters caused by the technology advancing.

    I love this book... wonderful to be able to see the behind-the-scenes aspect from my favorite animation studio & one of my favorite films.... it's really amazing how much detail work was done, down to "this bush" (in front of neighbors' houses) "needs to be shorter?" <3 Pixar I love this book... wonderful to be able to see the behind-the-scenes aspect from my favorite animation studio & one of my favorite films.... it's really amazing how much detail work was done, down to "this bush" (in front of neighbors' houses) "needs to be shorter?" <3 Pixar

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I think the story was very adventurous and funny. The journey that these toys had went through was kind of risky and dangerous, but the creator of this movie/book made the plot less twists and turns.
