New ‘Toy Story’ Short Includes Parody of McDonald’s Definitive Best Toy Line

toy-story-small-fry.jpg

As noted Friday, Pixar’s new Toy Story short, titled Small Fry, involves the hidden tragedy of our forgotten Happy Meal ephemera. In this first clip from the film–set to debut before showings of The Muppets–we meet a couple of these lost toys, including a Jane Lynch-voiced mermaid and a transforming T-bone clearly based on The Best Toys McDonald’s Ever Produced: 1987′s Changeables. Those guys at Pixar always know just the way to our hearts, and in this case, that way is by misplaced nostalgia for toys meant to breed enduring fondness for terrible food.

This short had better end with masses 20-to-35-year-olds heading to eBay to re-buy all their old Happy Meal crap, because that’s sure what’s about to happen right now.

First Look at New ‘Toy Story’ Short’s Happy Meal Buzz Lightyear

toy-story-small-fry.jpg

A new Toy Story short will premiere before the November 23 release of The Muppets, and USA Today has the first look at the franchise’s newest addition to the cast: a Happy Meal version of Buzz Lightyear. Writer/director Angus MacLane revealed that the short’s story deals with a support group for the ephemeral fast food toys, adding, “These toys’ existence is about being really popular before the meal and then being totally forgotten about. And sometimes they don’t even get played with.” So, yeah, despite this Toy Story only lasting a few minutes, you’re still probably going to cry. That’s just the way it is.

Tom Hanks Starts Up the ‘Toy Story 4′ Rumors

toy-story-woody-buzz.jpg

With Cars 2‘s release and the premiere of the Brave trailer all happening this past weekend, Disney•Pixar would probably really like it if blogs were covering either of those things instead of some wild, likely-unfounded rumors about what might be happening with the Toy Story series. Unfortunately for them, this weekend was also when Tom Hanks decided to start some wild, likely-unfounded rumors about what might be happening with the Toy Story franchise. When an interviewer from the BBC asked Hanks if there would be a Toy Story 4, Hanks replied:

“I think there will be, yeah. Yeah, I think they’re working on it now.”

So: reality, or Hanks prank? Considering how beautifully the third film wrapped up the trilogy, it would be a real shame if he’s right. But at the same time: Toys in Space?

Exclusive Clip from the ‘Toy Story 3 – Special Features: “Creating Spanish Buzz”


www.adictoalfilm.com Toy Story 3 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on November 2nd 2010 and Disney has given us an exclusive bonus clip from the release. The clip is entitled “Creating Spanish Buzz” from the bonus featurette Toys! It features animator Carlos Baena (an awesome guy who I’ve met previously, who in addition to working at Pixar is an animation mentor for aspiring animators) discussing the animation of Buzz in Spanish mode after he is reset at Sunnyside Daycare. There’s footage from the film of Buzz doing his flamingo dance, Carlos filming himself performing some of the poses and gestures for reference (which is quite funny, actually), director Lee Unkrich talking about Spanish Buzz, and footage from the animation test with Spanish Buzz and Jessie dancing.
