New Toy Story 3 Character
Take a look at our little Buttercup

18 February 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Enjoy that Toy Story 3 trailer last week? Fancy more of the same? Well, it's your lucky day because here is another of the new characters from the film - namely, Buttercup.

We don't know what Buttercup's role in the film is yet, but here's what the synopsis has to say: "Saddle up for fun and let Buttercup lead your child away on a magical adventure! This cuddly unicorn features velvety-soft, snow-colored fur with sparkly gold and pink accents. He sports a signature mythical golden horn and a fun-to-comb mane and tail. Buttercup’s durable plastic eyes are both charming and scratch-resistant. Hypo-allergenic. Ages 3 and up." Buttercup is voiced by Jeff Garlin, who voiced the Captain in Wall-E.

Toy Story 3 is out in the UK on July 23, and in the US on June 18. For more on the film, check out our guide to the trailer's Easter Eggs here.

I think thats the joke....
the character LOOKS really fluffy, girly and adorable, but then has Jeff Garlins rather manly, unfluffy voice. Like in the trailer where the toys make fun of Ken for being a girls toy, Id say Buttercup gets his share of abuse too. More
