The 'Toy Story' Double Feature [and the Full 'Toy Story 3' Trailer!]

I just got back from seeing 4 straight hours of Toy Story, and it was great. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy seeing both movies again, but I loved seeing it with an audience. I was glad that I'm not the only one quoting lines, and that I am not the only one who finds many of the jokes laugh-out-loud funny. I really enjoyed seeing it in a theater full of people. Also, seeing them on the big screen was a treat, since I don't really remember seeing them previous to the DVD release. The intermission was fun since they had trivia and short little "Toy Story Treats" which were funny--one, for example, was a staring contest between Woody and Lenny. Great Stuff. Some other new things never-seen before were a short scene before the film of the toys' silhouettes in the projection booth, and a short hand-drawn animation sequence discussing the intermission.

Even more exciting than the double feature, however, was what came before it: the full Toy Story 3 trailer! It begins with a series of video taped clips of Andy and his toys, playing with a new Randy Newman song. Then there are clips from the movie which include a funny sequence of the toys being massacred at the daycare, a really funny scene where Buzz's Spanish-language setting gets engaged, etc. Below you will find a very, very low quality version of the trailer, seeing as it hasn't been released officially online yet. It's a recording from the theater, and, yeah, kinda dishonest. But, you've gotta love the trailer:

June had better hurry up...
