ABC has announced “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” a new Christmas-themed Toy Story TV special with most of the original voice cast expected to return. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.”
Reprising their roles for the special are Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz, Kristen Schaal as Trixie, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Timothy Dalton as Mr. Pricklepants, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head, and Joan Cusack as Jessie. Kevin McKidd is also onboard to play a new character named Reptillus Maximus.
Steve Purcell (“Brave”) is directing the short which will launch later this year. ABC’s first “Toy Story” special, the Halloween-themed “Toy Story of Terror,” was a big hit which drew 10.5 million viewers.
