A few months ago a new Toy Story short film was announced to be in the works. Even after the third installment of the franchise, Toy Story 3, many Disney Pixar fans still want to see the adventures of our favorite little toys – especially our favorite cowboy and astronaut. And that’s exactly what we’re going to get.
On August 9th, Disney announced that the 30-minute short film, entitled Toy Story of TERROR, will be making its way to our televisions just in time for Halloween. The TV special will air at 8pm on October 16th on ABC.
Toy Story of TERROR will showcase a fun road trip gone wrong. One of the toys goes missing and mysterious and horrible events occur. According to Slash Film, the first 10 minutes of the TV movie was shown at the D23 expo.
The toys start off by watching a horror film on a road trip to Bonnie’s grandmother’s house. An unfortunate event happens that causes them to stay over at a motel, which ultimately puts them in a similar horror film scenario.
Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will be reprising their roles as Sherriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Joan Cusack, Timothy Dalton, Don Rickles, Wallace Shawn and Kristen Schaal are all returning as well, with Carl Weathers providing the voice for Combat Carl.
I’ll definitely be tuning in to see iconic toys take a horror route, will you?
