Scooped on Thursday, September 10, 2009
John Lasseter has revealed the identity of a new cast member of Toy Story 3 at a Disney Animation Showcase presentation held today in London, England. British born actor Timothy Dalton, who played secret agent James Bond in License to Kill and The Living Daylights, will play a porcupine toy character named Mr. Pricklepants who has lofty ambitions to be an acclaimed actor himself.
As reported by Empire magazine, some footage from Toy Story 3 was also screened to the attendees:
"The clip showed Andy packing from college, and emptying all his toys into a black bin bag for storage in the attic. He hesitates over Woody and Buzz, finally putting Woody in the box of things to take for college. But all the toys are panicked - especially Woody, who's worried for his friends. When Andy is distracted by his little sister and leaves the garbage bag on the landing instead of upstairs in the attic, his mother takes it out to the kerb - and a frantic Woody has to save his friends from a rapidly approaching bin lorry.
"We also saw the as-yet unreleased trailer, which showed bits of the same scene, but developed the story. Clearly the toys end up being sent to a daycare centre, where they are horribly abused by the little kids - and after that it's time for a break-out attempt to find a safe haven, and hopefully a new owner, in a cruel world. It looks every bit as good as its titanic predecessors."
