Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The title character of Hayao Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro film makes a cameo in Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich and Pixar's film project which just released its third trailer on Thursday. Toy Story 3 will open in North America on June 18.
Miyazaki and Pixar founder John Lasseter have been personal friends for two decades; the two have visited each others' studios frequently over the years, and Lasseter helped oversee the English release of Miyazaki's Spirited Away and Ponyo. Along with previous efforts, Lasseter opened a 2008 charity auction at Pixar's own headquarters for the Totoro Forest Project, an effort to save one of the forests that inspired My Neighbor Totoro.
