Pixar and ABC announce 'Toy Story' Christmas special for the 2014 holiday season

Pixar and ABC announce ‘Toy Story’ Christmas special for the 2014 holiday season


Last we left our Toy Story heroes, Andy had peeled off to college, leaving Woody, Buzz and company at his kid neighbor Bonnie’s house. That, however, wasn’t the end of the adventure. 

Pixar and ABC have announced plans for a Christmas-themed Toy Story special to be released this holiday season, dubbed Toy Story That Time Forgot. But, please, don’t expect our heroes to meet up with The Jolly Bearded One, a la Kiss Saves Santa.

Instead, the story picks up shortly after Christmas in the Toy Story universe, with a fresh gaggle of toys having newly arrived at our heroes’ new residence. That, according to a recent press release, is when all the trouble starts:

“During a post-Christmas play date, the ‘Toy Story’ gang find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. It’s all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to return to Bonnie’s room.”

So, classic Toy Story hijinks. The better news, though, is that Tom Hanks will return as Buzz, and the special will feature all your favorite toys—from Rex on down to Mr. Potato Head.

No air date yet, but expect it—as with all Christmas specials—just after Thanksgiving. And, please, hope it’s a success—the world won’t last much longer without a Toy Story 4.
