It has been over a year since the director and screenwriter were named
for Toy Story 3
(Lee Unkrich and Michael Arndt). Finally, it seems that we're getting some plot details, but there's a case of dueling summaries going on. Over at Empire
, they say that The Wall Street Journal got a bit loose-lipped in an article they recently ran about Disney Pixar stopping the outsourcing of their movies' video games. The Journal says: "Woody the cowboy and his toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college." That makes sense. It's been 11 years since the last film, so a whole lot of time has gone by (not that time really
matters in the film world).
Now, the twist comes in over at IMDb
. Just the other day, the plot summary was updated and it says: "In this new adventure, Buzz Lightyear has encountered a malfunction and is being sent to Taiwan to be fixed. It appears that these malfunctions are occurring with toys all around the world! Now, Woody and a group of his friends are on a mission to save Buzz's destruction."
So, did the Journal really leak something? Is Disney/Pixar putting up a bunch of different summaries to mess with our minds? Or, is this summary on IMDb just b-s?
More importantly: Which would you prefer?
