Allen and Hanks Back for Toy Story 3


Columnists Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith caught up with Zoom star Tim Allen who said that he and Tom Hanks will reprise their voices of Buzz Lightyear and Woody, respectively, in Disney/Pixar's Toy Story 3.

"It's going to be great," said Allen. "We have John Lasseter, the original director, and I believe Tom is on board." Allen added that the new version of the story is "stronger" than the previous one.

Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger revealed in May that the studio had started production on the third film. After Disney acquired Pixar, Pixar took over production of Toy Story 3, which Disney's in-house animators had been working on.
