The darkness and claustrophobia, the fire of the incinerator, [[BigBad Lotso's]] taunt of "Where's your kid now?[[note]]presumably based off of the Internet meme "Where's your God now"[[/note]]"... It's obvious what {{Pixar}} was symbolically invoking, but from another perspective, the dump is more like the concept of no life after death rather than Hell.

Say what you will about the first movie (what with all those [[NightmareFuel mutant toys]] and UncannyValley humans), but ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' arguably was the trilogy's darkest installment. Many may dismiss the reason for this as solely because the third movie was aimed toward those that saw the original ''Toy Story'' in theaters fifteen years ago and grew up with the series - not only could the now-adolescent audience appreciate deeper themes such as abandonment and CharacterDevelopment, but if the final installment in the series didn't exceed the standards set by the previous two, then it would be a grave disappointment for the audience. However, there is more to this than SequelEscalation. This was more than a mere adventure for the toys - their life with Andy, and their life metaphorically, ''ends'' in this film. The entire movie was symbolic of the afterlife, and the choices the toys make determine their ultimate fate.

Added DiffLines:

* Alternate Interpretation: Gehenna
The toys are in The Caterpillar Room for a finite time. Their ultimate fate is total destruction in the incinerator or being buried and compressed for eternity in the landfill. Historically, Gehenna refers to a literal garbage dump where fires were kept burning constantly to prevent the spread of disease. The final fate of the damned is to be cast into Gehenna, where "their worm will not die, nor will their fire be quenched." In the landfill, the toys will either be buried alive and fully conscious (and perhaps be surrounded by worms, but never consumed because they're plastic) or fed into a fire that never goes out.
