Tom Hanks Recording Toy Story Toons!

News Short Film Toy Story

We’ve deduced more than we probably should have from Tom Hank‘s latest Twitter update:

"3 directors boss "Woody" around for Toy Story shorts. Come on, guys! Hanx," wrote the toy Sheriff himself.

The tweet, followed by a link to the image seen above, suggests that Angus MacLane, Bobby Podesta and Mark Walsh will direct one or more of the previously confirmed short films in the Toy Story Toons series. Each Pixarian mentioned is a proven leader— one director and two supervising animators, respectively.

Tom Hank’s picture may very well be from a recording session for Hawaii (or was it Dream Vacation), the short that is set to be attached to the theatrical release of Cars 2. But the tweet mentions the word "short" in its plural form, meaning that Hanks likely donned his cowboy boots and pull string for more than one hilarious vignette.

Maybe we’re blowing this image way out of proportion. It’s still nice to see talented people having fun doing what they love!
