'Toy Story 3' to screen at Edinburgh

3D film will get a gala screening in June

LONDON -- Organizers of this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival are excitedly animated after securing a 3D gala screening for Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story 3," scheduled for a day after it opens stateside.

Disney and EIFF are teaming to program a 3D screening of the movie on June 19 during the Scottish event.

Directed by Lee Unkrich, the voice cast includes familiar sounds from Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack and others with newcomers including Timothy Dalton as Mr Pricklepants and Michael Keaton as Ken.

The gala builds on Disney's longstanding relationship with the EIFF that has resulted in festival premieres for the Disney/Pixar's "Wall-E" and "Ratatouille" in recent years.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures U.K. will roll it out across the U.K. beginning July 23.

The EIFF runs June 16-27 this year.
