New 'Toy Story' TV Special Announced for Holiday 2014

News Toy Story Toy Story of Terror! Toy Story That Time Forgot

Last year brought us Pixar’s first half-hour TV special, Toy Story of Terror. In addition to being an enjoyable return to the Toy Story universe, it was a huge ratings success – so much so that the studio has decided to move forward with another Toy Story special for 2014!

The Christmas-themed special, titled Toy Story That Time Forgot, will be produced by Galyn Susman and directed by Steve Purcell (who co-directed Brave). The official description (via Stitch Kingdom) reads:

"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 in this
Toy Story That Time Forgot."

Set to return are Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz, Kristen Schaal as Trixie, Joan Cusack as Jessie, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head, and Timothy Dalton as Mr. Pricklepants. Kevin McKidd (Lord MacGuffin from Brave) joins the cast as Reptillus Maximus. Though an exact date has yet to be announced, the short will air on ABC later this year.

What do you think of this announcement? Did Toy Story of Terror leave you wanting more Toy Story specials?
