The Wall Street Journal had an article relating how movie studios are beginning to keep video game development in-house as opposed to giving the rights to traditional game developers. As we move forward in the age of computer filmography, I anticipate this trend will grow as the line between film and interactive media continues to blur. However, in the article, the Journal also dropped this nugget:
"In Pixar's coming movie "Toy Story 3," Woody the cowboy and his toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college."
No Andy? And I wonder if the story will revolve around how today's children are all like Sid from Toy Story, abusing toys and not caring for them? Or if the children will all be so ADD that they can't play with a single toy for more than 30 seconds before moving on? Or if the children will just ignore the toys all together and sit in front of the wall-mounted television all day while the toys desparately cry out for attention? Just imagine the possibilities!
