Fans created a remake of the third part of Toy Story with the permission of Disney studio. The new version is already available on YouTube. The authors are two brothers Morgan and Mason McGrew from Iowa. They used real toys and engaged people to film the remake.
Characters of Toy Story 3 were set in motion using special stop motion animation. For this purpose, real toys were slightly altered. McGrew brothers started making amateur videos in 2011 – not for the sake of money but due to their love for the original.
