"TOY STORY OF TERROR" - TV special, 2013
"Toy Story of Terror" is a 30-minute special that reunites the original voice cast from the "Toy Story" franchise. The film follows the adventures of the toys post-"Toy Story 3", in which a fun road trip takes a very unexpected turn. The film has horror feel after one of the toys goes missing at the motel. The rest of the gang finds themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate. That said, the producers took inspiration from the horror genre - "Psycho", "Aliens" and "Predator", in particular - but found the right balance for both adults and children.
While "Toy Story of Terror" includes Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles) and Rex (Wallace Shawn), Jessie (Joan Cusack) has a more prominent role in the special. Additionally, Bonnie's toys - Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton) and Trixie (Kristen Schaal) - who first appeared in the third installment, are featured, while we also get to actually meet Combat Carl, who briefly appeared in the first film when he was blown up by Sid, who is voiced by Carl Weathers.
The film premiered on October 16, 2013 on ABC. It was a big hit which drew 10.5 million viewers.
