'Toy Story 3': How good will it have to be to meet your expectations?

Posted on

Pixar screened an unfinished cut of Toy Story 3 yesterday at Showest, and early impressions are incredibly positive. Our own Nicole Sperling says it’s great, and the general consensus says the same. Squee! The film opens June 18 — just three short months away! — and includes a slew of new characters, like the robot Sparks, a triceratops Trixie, and Stretch, a glittery octopus

Time to clear off desk space to make room for my new collection of Pixar tsotchkes.

I am absurdly excited for Toy Story 3 (in 3-D!), but now I’m in a pickle: I want so badly for this film to blow me away that anything short of a soul-expanding revelation is going to feel like a letdown. What about you, PopWatchers? How are you managing your expectations? Will TS3 have to go to infinity and beyond, or will you be happy no matter what?
