Woody from "Toy Story 3" is one of the characters in the Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar animated film.

Woody ("Toy Story 3") is a cowboy sheriff with a pull string that, when pulled, proclaims Woody's signature catchphrases from the 1950s TV show "Woody's Roundup." He's always been Andy's favourite toy. Even though his owner is now grown, the loyal sheriff Woody maintains a steadfast belief that Andy still cares about his toys. As the toys venture into their unknown future, Woody remains the voice

of reason. As their dependable leader, he ensures that no toy gets left behind.

Tom Hanks lends his voice once again. For Hanks, slipping back into the role of Woody after a long absence was an easy assignment. "Woody is a passionate guy who throws himself into every action," says Hanks. "As soon as he has an instinctive thought, like 'I have to help them' or 'I have to run away,' he does it with 100-percent commitment. You gotta love that about anybody. I also love the way the relationship between Woody and Buzz has grown. They started off as pure adversaries and learned how to accept each other's strengths, forgive each other's failures, and respect each other as individuals. Opposites definitely attract in this case.

"The fact that Pixar can come up with a third 'Toy Story' movie and have it be completely fresh and real and unique shows just how brilliant they are," continues Hanks. "There's this great logic that John Lasseter and Lee [Unkrich] and Darla [K. Anderson] and all the writers adhere to that makes moviegoers just kind of relax and let themselves be transported to this magical place and time. When you can do that with a movie, it's amazing. With 'Toy Story 3,' you come back to a lovely, familiar and happy place. What's great is that I get credit for the way the character and the humour come off. I have kids that are now in college come up to me and say, 'When you told that neighbour kid to play nice, that really meant a lot to me.'"

Hanks says that the franchise's third instalment is not light on emotion. "'Toy Story 3' is a big, massive adventure that has you constantly on the edge of your seat," he says. "It's part 'Great Escape,' with the same kind of excitement as Dorothy escaping from the Wicked Witch of the West. And yet they take those elements and turn them into something that is very emotional. We're talking about toy dinosaurs and Mr Potato Head, and yet you feel for them and don't want them to get recycled or stuck with the bratty kids. You want them to be together and played with at the end of the movie. You're worried for their essence. The filmmakers at Pixar always manage to get you right in the heart. The story is as simple as growing up and having a guy go off to college, but it is so profoundly emotional that you can't help but have tears in your eyes."
