Concept Art From Disney's Abandoned TOY STORY 3

In 2004, the Disney-Pixar partnership ended bitterly. Though, Disney owned Pixar's characters, films and their sequel rights. So they opened their own animation studio and began working on sequels. Come see art from their Toy Story 3 that was never made.


In 2004, a feud between Pixar's CEO Steve Jobs and Disney's CEO Michael Eisner came to a head and the partnership between the two companies ended rather abruptly. Disney didn't wait around to figure out their next course of action as they quickly established their own Pixar-like animation studio, Circle 7 Animation. Disney's deal with Pixar gave them ownership to Pixar's feature films, characters and sequel rights, so Disney had Circle 7 Animation begin working on Finding Nemo 2, Monsters Inc. 2, and Toy Story 3. In 2006, Disney's new CEO Bob Iger worked out a deal with Steve Jobs in which Disney purchased Pixar for $7.4 billion and put Pixar's leadership in control of Disney's animation department. Soon after the deal was struck Circle 7 Animation was shutdown and most of their employees were absorbed by Pixar. All the sequels Circle 7 had been working on were scrapped.

Below, you can find key frame and concept art, as well as character designs from Circle 7's Toy Story 3 that were created by Jim Martin and Shane Zalvin. In that version, written by Jim Herzfeld ("Meet The Parents"), the other toys become concerned when Buzz Lightyear starts to malfunction and decide to ship him to the Taiwanese that originally built him, in the hopes they they could repair him. Soon after, Woody and the rest toys are shocked to learn that there has been a massive recall on all Buzz Lightyear toys. Fearing that Buzz will be destroyed Woody and his gang (Rex, Slinky, Mr. Potato Head, Hamm, Jessie, and Bullseye) head off on a rescue mission. Over in Taiwan, Buzz is making new friends with other toys that have been recalled.
