DisneyPixar annnounced at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California on Friday that a new “Toy Story” short will debut with The Muppets in theaters on November 23.
Titled “Small Fry,” the short was directed by Angus MacLane. In the short, Buzz Lightyear is left behind at a fast food restaurant when a kids’ meal toy version of Buzz takes his place. While Bonnie’s toys are stuck with the annoying 3-inch-tall Buzz impersonator, the real Buzz is trapped in the restaurant at a support group for discarded toys. As Woody and the gang devise a way to rescue their friend, Buzz tries to escape the toy psychotherapy meeting.
The “Toy Story” characters were last seen on the big screen in the short “Hawaiian Vacation,” which played in front of Cars 2. The Cars 2 Blu-ray and DVD will hit stores on November 1st and will include the “Toy Story” short.
