This movie did not have to be made but I am glad it did. Toy Story 3 had the perfect way to end the franchise although while having 9 years passed between sequels, it has enough nostalgia and heart as the previous movies. With the story going in a new direction after the toys left Andy, many new characters have been set up to expand the franchise for a couple more films. With $200 million budget this sequel successfully made over one billion dollars at the box office.

Having a budget of any blockbuster movie, the voice acting cast was impressive. With Tom Hanks and Tim Allen returning as Buzz and Woody, other famous actors make a voice appearance with Kegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele as Ducky and Bunny with Keanu Reeves voice acting Duke Carboom. Their roles in the film were some of the most memorable parts. Other than that, the ending scene was also unpredictable in what would happen next.

Some Pixar or Dreamworks animated movies are wholesome and nostalgic to me as now as an adult I can understand what all the meanings and purposes mean. Being a somewhat family film, it has a strong foundation in story development. Enough emotion to get you invested behind the characters motivation. A well-timed comedy that makes sense within the context. The animation was visually appealing in every scene and finally, the music helped the overall cinematography.

As of right now, this movie is the 30th highest-grossing film of all time and the fight highest-grossing animated film. For that good reason, I highly recommend this movie if you enjoy somewhat friendly concepts in the toy Story franchise. Saying that I would still rate Toy story 3 a little higher in my ratings out of ten.
