In case you might have missed the news, Pixar is making a Halloween special for ABC (which is owned by Disney) using the gang from Toy Story, which should be all you need to get excited. The special airs on October 16, and after watching the nifty little preview, which comes courtesy of Huffington Post. The special, Toy Story of TERROR!, looks like it’s going to immediately earn a place among such holiday season classics like It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (well, all of the Charlie Brown holiday specials) and Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer.
Check out the trailer. If you’re a fan of Pixar/Toy Story, your excitement meter will increase considerably:
What starts out as a fun road trip for the “Toy Story” gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved..
If it were possible to set a DVR a month in advance, mine would already be set. As you can probably tell, TSoT will feature the voice talent you’ve come to expect with Woody, Buzz, and the gang. This, of course, includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, and Wallace Shawn. According to the report, the awesome Carl Weathers will be joining the cast as a character named Combat Carl.
Again, look for Toy Story of TERROR! on October 16 on ABC.[Lead image via Pixar via SlashFilm]
