Toy Story Gets a 3D Woody!


While I haven't seen anything official from Disney or Pixar (now owned by Disney), The Hollywood Reporter claims that Walt Disney Studios plans to debut new digital 3-D versions of "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2"! They are typically very trustworthy.

Here is the lineup:
1. "Toy Story": 2D - 3D Digital Source Conversion: Due Oct. 2, 2009
2. "Toy Story 2": 2D - 3D Digital Source Conversion: Due Feb. 12, 2010
3. "Toy Story 3": 3D Digital Animation: Due June 18, 2010

What is truly exciting about this project is the advantage that they enjoy in the 2D to 3D conversion: They already have the digital source code! They can therefore grab the original objects and add the 3D elements in a very efficient manner. Of course the third iteration of Toy Story that is due in theaters June 18th, 2010 will be 3D from the ground up.

Yet another movie franchise goes 3D - Toy Story. George Lucas is also re-mastering his entire Star Wars franchise to 3D. And, as you have exclusively learned here on MarketSaw, Peter Jackson will bring "The Hobbit" movies to 3D -AND- "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy.

Oh yes - 3D is the future of Hollywood. After seeing U23D last night - I am absolutely thrilled at the prospect of more and more franchises being converted and founded on the total immersion of 3D. Guess thats why I love blogging!
