In a nostalgic throwback to the holiday-themed animated specials that marked the 70s and 80s, Pixar will be launching its first ever feature created exclusively for television. Toy Story of TERROR! is a half-hour adventure that stars the majority of everyone’s favorite characters from the well-loved Toy Story series. Due to be broadcast around Halloween, the animated “thriller” will follow Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Mr. Potato Head and co as car trouble forces their new owner, Bonnie, and her mother into staying at a spooky motel for the night.
Despite being designed for television and only being a quarter of the length of a standard Pixar movie, Toy Story of TERROR! spent 2 years in development and production – so expect the quality to be just as good as any Pixar movie. The special will air on ABC on October 16.
