As we told you back in January, Walt Disney Pictures is preparing the third installment of their "Toy Story" franchise in 3-D! It's slated to open on June 18, 2010.
Here's more new info for y'all:
*** Barbie and Ken will co-star
*** Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in "Little Mermaid" revealed that she is going to be the voice of Barbie. You may remember that she provided the voice of Tour Guide Barbie and Barbe on Backpack in the second installment.

Warner Bros. feels the upcoming Mumbai film "Hari Puttar -- A Comedy of Terrors" is a tad too similar to its "Harry Potter" franchise that the studio has filed a lawsuit!
According to Variety, the case is being heard in the Bombay High Court and comes up for hearing Monday, while "Hari Puttar" is slated for a Sept. 12 release.
The Hari Puttar name began making the rounds here as a comic gag when the first "Harry Potter" film was released. "Hari" is a popular Indian name while "Puttar" means "son" in the Punjabi language.
Well, since Warners moved the showing of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" to next summer, I may just have to watch "Hari Puttar -- A Comedy of Terrors."

I give studios quotes right after watching an upcoming film. Some of my quotes are half-hearted but they're all coming from my heart -- I stand by each and everyone of them!
So last Friday, a friend of mine was reading the Los Angeles Times, and lo and behold, he saw my name on a full-page ad that Universal Pictures bought for "Death Race."
So he excitedly text me, and I excitedly grabbed a copy of the paper! I was proud EVEN THOUGH Universal used my real name, and not my affable moniker, Manny the Movie Guy!
Oh well, at least my name's out there, and it made my mommy happy
I said, "Death Race" is a thrill-a-minute action adventure, and Jason Statham is Hollywood's new action hero.
And guess what? I truly meant those words, and oh yeah, they were not half-heartedly written
