“Toy Story 3” audiences will benefit from smaller, kid-friendly 3D glasses
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This is a story that passed across our desks this morning, and I think it will delight parents who are gearing up to bring little ones to “Toy Story 3” this weekend.
RealD, the 3-D technology company responsible for generating the glasses handed out at your local multiplex for a 3-D screening, has designed a smaller, lightweight lens for children to wear. Rumors of these smaller glasses have circulated for months now, with a few people telling us they might have been ready in time for the fourth “Shrek” film.
Now MSNBC reports that the lighter glasses for children ages 8 and under will be in theaters in time for “Toy Story 3” this weekend.
If you have children, you know what a major pain in the … well, on the nose the larger glasses can be. My 6-year-old son couldn’t wait to watch the first two “Toy Story” films back to back last winter when Disney screened them as part of a double feature. But he watched most of “Toy Story 2” without his glasses, saying he preferred the blurry images to the pain of wearing the heavy specs.
3-D seems to be the wave of the future. But it sounds like the glasses problem will be a thing of the past.
