“Toy Story 3’s” Lee Unkrich at the Hollywood Awards Gala
HollywoodNews.com: Lee Unkrich is the director of Disney/Pixar’s animated feature “Toy Story 3,” which welcomes Woody, Buzz and the whole gang back as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in… day care! More than a few new faces – some plastic, some plush – join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie’s counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear. The film features the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Michael Keaton and Ned Beatty, among others.
Unkrich began his career at Pixar as a film editor on “Toy Story” and continued on to be supervising film editor on “A Bug’s Life.” He made his feature film directorial debut in 1999 as co-director on the Golden Globe®-winning “Toy Story 2” and went on to co-direct “Monsters, Inc.” and served as co-director and supervising film editor for the Academy Award®-winning feature “Finding Nemo.”
