Toy Story 3 got a major new actor this weekend with the announcement that Timothy Dalton would be joining the toys. His character is Mr. Pricklepants, and Empire describes him as ‘a hedgehog toy with thespian tendencies.’ Other sites speculate that Mr. Pricklepants is a tchotchke someone brought home from a European vacation, as Pricklepants is wearing lederhosen. Check out the image to the right, which is a sketch of the character from Silas Lesnick of Coming Soon, who saw Pricklepants debut at Disney’s D23 convention.
Expect a new trailer soon, one which will explain the story of Toy Story 3 a bit more – with Andy off to college, his mom donates the toys to a local daycare center, where they are in for more abuse than they ever imagined possible.
