There is always lots of excitement at Disney premieres, and this one was no exception. With lots of screaming kids, lots of screaming photographers, and mid-day summer temperatures hovering around 100 degrees, it can be as much of an endurance test as anything else!

Tom Hanks (voice of Woody) is one of the most personable people you will ever meet. A true professional, Tom is one of the few top A-Listers who always takes the time to make eye contact with every single photographer on the red carpet. He knows why we’re there, and he knows what we need.

New characters debuted in this sequel.  Michael Keaton (Ken) and Jodi Benson (Barbie) were fresh faces in this group. Joan Cusack (Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl) continued in her role from “Toy Story 2”.

With a cast of funny men, the movie, and the red carpet were ripe for jokes. Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear) in particular always comes down the carpet instigating laughter, and this day was no exception. Legends of comedy, Don Rickles (Mr. Potato Head), John Ratzenberger (Hamm) and Wallace Shawn (Rex) always seem to be full of laughs as well.
