Just in time for Christmas, Pixar Animation Studios is releasing the 22-minute TV special, Toy Story That Time Forgot. Featuring our favorite playthings—still voiced by the original actors—this short film finds our heroes caught in another new world of adventure and imagination.
The story goes like this: Two days after Christmas, Bonnie takes Woody and the gang over to her friend Mason’s house for a play date. Once there, though, the toys are quickly forgotten in favor of a flashy video game. Lost in Mason’s room, they encounter a new set of dinosaur-themed toys called The Battlesaurs. Like Buzz Lightyear in the first Toy Story, these creatures are unaware that they are toys—and they love to fight. Soon Woody and Buzz find themselves in a battle arena while Trixie and Rex struggle to save the day.
Adventure and surprises abound in this action-packed, holiday treat. Enjoy it with your kids during Christmas break!
