News from around the web

Disney and their top computer animation studio Pixar are dipping into the Toy Story universe again and releasing an origins movie, Lightyear.

Based on the fan favourite character Buzz Lightyear the movie is being billed as the definitive story of the character which was voiced by Tim Allen on the 4 movies.

Stepping up this time os Chris Evans who will voice the fames Space Ranger as his younger self.

Its an interesting concept to bring up an origins story based on a character which is a living toy, toys don't age!

All the toy story films, including the fourth one, where excellent and there is no doubt that if anyone can pull this off its Pixar.

Release date, in the US at least, is 22 June 2022, all being well with the world by then.

Spirited Away is arguably one of director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli best films but in 2001 when the film was originally released it was banned in China, that ban was lifted this week and the film finally got a long overdue release.

There was another animated film released this week in China, and the rest of the world, this week, Toy Story 4, a brand new animation from Pixar and the fourth film in the very successful Toy Story Series.

In most of the world Toy Story 4 has topped the box office, including most of Europe and the United States, but in China the incredible happened and the 18 year old animation beat the brand new films.

This is quite incredible, and good news for cinema and the Chinese box office, I suspect many people in China have seen the film as it has been available on home video for years, but it would seem the public want to see this film on the big screen.

Its not all bad news for the Pixar movie as it has landed on the box office at number 2, but with Spirited Away taking $27.8 Million dollars (converted) compared with $13.2 Million (converted) the Toy Story film took half that of the Japanese animation.

The fourth film in the Toy Story saga has all your favourite characters back for more adventures, this time it looks like its set in a travelling amusement park and Woody seems to get lost with the rest of the toys of Buzz Lightyear, Rex and Mr Potato Head et el searching for him.

The original three films are considered one of the greatest film trilogies of all time sitting alongside the likes of the original Star Wars trilogy and The Lord Of The Rings trilogy.

Hence there are high hopes for the new movie and judging by the trailers Pixar wont be disappointing us.
