In the words of Slinky Dog, “Golly bob howdy!”

Toy Story is one of the most beloved animated movie franchises of all time, so much so that two aspiring filmmakers, brothers Morgan and Mason McGrew, decided to release a full-length, shot-for-shot, stop-motion remake of Toy Story 3… and the result is truly remarkable. The entire project took the brothers over eight years to complete and was filmed using iPhone cameras. Although many of the toys used in the film were store-bought, the McGrew brothers did have to improvise and create a few of the iconic toys themselves. Since posting the video, Toy Story 3 In Real Life has received more than 800,000 views on YouTube.

Check out the McGrew brothers’ outstanding stop-motion video below:
