Introducing new characters from Toy Story 3!

Disney have unveiled two new characters from Pixar’s Toy Story 3: Ken and Peas-in-a-Pod. They are the first of fourteen characters that will be revealed before the film’s June 24th release date.

I’ll hand it over to Disney’s press release to properly introduce Ken and Peas-in-a-Pod.

Ken:

“Grab your binoculars and join Ken on a safari! A swinging bachelor who’s always on the lookout for fun, Ken sports the perfect outfit for his eco-adventure: light blue shorts and a leopard-print shirt with short sleeves sure to keep him cool in the hot sun. And after his exciting expedition, Ken will be ready to hit the dance floor in style. His accessories include matching scarf, sensible loafers and a fashion-forward gold belt. Dozens of additional Ken outfits sold separately.” – Ken will be voiced by Michael Keaton – hilariously, no doubt.

Peas-in-a-Pod:

“Peas-in-a-Pod will quickly become a parent’s favorite on-the-go toy. The soft, plush pod secures the happy peas inside with a durable metal zipper, making it perfect for the car or stroller. The Peas-in-a-Pod plush toy also develops fine motor skills by catering to a child’s natural grab instinct. Pulling the three peas out of the pod will provide repeated enjoyment for infants and toddlers, and soon they’ll learn to put them back in! Machine washable. Not for human consumption.”

Disney will also release the final theatrical trailer for Toy Story 3 tomorrow. If you can’t wait until then, take a look at this 30-second snippet (which also reveals a couple of the new characters).

Toy Story 3, directed by Lee Unkrich, will see the return of voice-actors Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack. Also joining the cast is Timothy Dalton and Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords).

It hits Australian cinemas June 24, 2010. It remains our 3rd most anticipated film of 2010.

Discuss: While we’re on the topic of Pixar, do you think Up has a genuine shot at taking home Best Picture at this year’s Oscars?
