Disney/Pixar brings to life the frightening and funny TV special that tells a new story featuring everyone's favorite Toy Story characters: Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Rex, Mr. Potato Head - as well as a number of new additions: Combat Carl, Hannah's dolls and more! In Toy Story of Terror we find Bonnie, the new owner of everyone's favorite toys, and her mom staying overnight at a hotel, where toys are mysteriously disappearing out of guests' rooms. When one of Bonnie's toys goes missing, the rest seek to find their friend and solve the mystery of what happens when the toys at the motel disappear. Exciting and fun with a number of scenes that'll have viewers on the edge of their seats, Toy Story of Terror will bring out the laughs and the scares and will be fun for the whole family!
Considering the main story is a TV special and clocks in at 22-minutes, Disney/Pixar has thrown together a number of new bonus features, including vintage toy commercials for Old Timer, Combat Carl and Transitron (which can be watched during the TV special or by themselves with editor introduction), 3 deleted scenes with editor introductions, audio commentary with film production staff, and the special featurette, Team of Specialists, with director Angus MacLane, who goes behind the scenes and introduces the "team of specialists" who brought this TV special to life.
Other special features include three fan-favorite Toy Story Toons Shorts: Hawaiian Vacation, which features the crew sending off (in their own unique way!) a special couple to "Hawaii;" Small Fry, a fun and exciting story of what happens when one of the crew gets left behind at the local fast food joint to spend time with the kid's meal toys; and Partysaurus Rex, a story featuring everyone's favorite dinosaur toy and what happens when he cuts loose and becomes a party animal. Each of these shorts is fun-filled, laugh-out-loud awesome and makes for a great way to spend an additional 15 minutes (total time).
Overall, the Toy Story of Tale Blu-ray is filled with an exciting TV special, three hilarious shorts, three classic vintage TV commercials, and a number of bonus features which will have viewers laughing and enjoying the time spent with Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Rex, Mr. Potato Head, Mr. Pricklepants, Trixie, Dolly, Combat Carl and the whole Toy Story crew!
Toy Story of Terror Blu-ray is available tomorrow, Tuesday, August 19, wherever fine home video is sold.
