You can’t have a different Woody! You have to live with the one you were born with!

Hanks Hesitates to Commit to ‘Toy Story 3’
LOS ANGELES ( – The toys are back in town, but Woody may sound a little different.
Although Walt Disney Studios intends to begin developing a third installment to Pixar’s “Toy Story” franchise, Tom Hanks may not return to lend his voice to the lead cowboy doll.
At a recent press conference, the Oscar winner expressed doubts about doing a third “Toy Story.”
“I don’t know. The creative team that put together the original ‘Toy Story’ movies was very specific and quite organic … to the success of the process — not that there aren’t other talented people that would be involved,” says Hanks. “That would be a bridge to cross when I come to it.”
Pixar CEO Steve Jobs and executive VP John Lasseter, who also wrote and directed the first two “Toy Story” films, aren’t keen on yet another follow-up that might change the integrity of the “Toy Story” characters.
With Pixar planning to end its distribution relationship with Disney — which holds the rights to make “Toy Story” sequels — after 2005’s “Cars” is released, Disney is looking for a way to continue the CGI-animated box-office magic. The studio is setting up its own digital animation facility in Glendale, Calif., to produce “Toy Story 3.”
The original 1995 film introduces Woody (Hanks), a little boy’s favorite toy — until the new astronaut doll Buzz Lightyear enters the picture. The second installment centers on Woody’s abduction by a toy collector who wants to put the doll on display in a museum. Both projects grossed approximately $437.5 million at the domestic box office.
Hanks, 48, currently appears in Warner Bros.’ holiday film “The Polar Express.” He’s also considered the frontrunner to play the lead in the big-screen adaptation of Dan Brown’s best-selling novel “The Da Vinci Code.”
