‘Toy Story 3’ Gets Release Date With Imax 3D

ABC Family offers sneak peek during Sunday’s broadcast of “The Incredibles”

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will release "Toy Story 3" to both Imax 3D theaters and regular screens on June 18.

And taking advantage of a little corporate synergy, cable network ABC Family will present a sneak peek from the upcoming Disney-Pixar film during Sunday night’s airing of "The Incredibles" from 8:30-11 p.m.

The world broadcast premiere segment is part of ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas Disney-Pixar Weekend, which includes a selection of Pixar shorts airing Friday night.

The two-minute premiere will feature director Lee Unkrich introducing "Toy Story 3," followed by a look at the film.

For its theatrical release, "Toy Story 3" will be digitally remastered with proprietary Imax DMR (Digital Re-Mastering) technology.

Bob Chapek, distribution president for the Walt Disney Studios, said in a statement: "We’re very excited to once again unite Disney Digital 3D with the Imax Experience, and to do it for the long-awaited release of ‘Toy Story 3’ is a real treat. A film like this is designed to take audiences on an exciting thrill-ride adventure, making it a perfect match for both 3D and Imax."

Greg Foster, chairman and president of Imax Filmed Entertainment, said in a statement, "In Imax 3D and through the power of Randy Newman’s incomparable music, audiences will be able to see and hear Woody, Buzz and the rest of the larger-than-life characters of ‘Toy Story’ in a whole new way."
