Flight Of The Conchords will be heard in Toy Story 3

Kristen Schaal is mystery Pixar character


Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich has announced that Kristen Schaal will voice an as-yet-undisclosed character in Pixar's latest.

As he explains in the video below, you might know her best as stalkerish fan Mel in The Flight Of The Conchords, but she's also cropped up occasionally on The Daily Show.

Unkrich refuses to elaborate on which character she's playing, but he's right - she's a very funny woman and continues the Pixar tradition of casting people who are talented yet not superstars.

The director also mentioned that Slinky Dog has a new voice - albeit one that sounds nearly identical to the late Jim Varney, who originated it.

Actor - and longtime friend of Varney - Blake Clark has taken over the vocal chores for the stretchy pooch.

Finally, in news more likely to please US readers than those at home, the double bill of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3D has been successful enough that Disney is extending the run from the original two weeks to a full month.

Based on the trailer, Toy Story 3 can't get here fast enough...

Ohhhhhh, that looks so excellent! Jake and I just laughed our butts off watching it! :D Thanks, Venus.

(Kristen's voice was missing the Mel-quality. A good thing...lol.)

Oh it does look good :clap: !
I really didn't think at first that it was her but right at the end you can hear that trademark raspiness (I think that's the right term for it?).

Yeah I know what you mean about the raspiness at the end, kipples! That was a total giveaway. ;)

New Toy Story 3 Character
Get a good look at Trixie
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Image

Another week, and another character from Toy Story 3 is getting her moment in the sun, as the beady eye of film fans everywhere is trained on Trixie, the loveable Triceratops who we've already glimpsed in the trailer and who's voiced by Flight of the Conchords' Kristen Schaal. Here's a good look at the character, and a glamorous poster image, below.

The character blurb goes like this: "Trixie is a perfect playmate for prehistoric playtime! Visit the era when dinosaurs ruled the Earth! Made of rigid, durable plastic and in friendly shades of blue and purple, Trixie features an expressive mouth and movable legs. This gentle Triceratops will feed any child’s imagination. Also available: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus and Velociraptor."

Click to see a 360 degree view of Trixie

Toy Story 3 is out on July 23 in the UK, or more precisely not soon enough.

We just saw Toy Story 3. Didn't know ahead of time that Kristen was in it. But I recognized her voice. She did a great job. I love seeing/hearing her work all over the place. She pops up quite often, me thinks. :clap:
