D23 Expo 2013: Toy Story of Terror banner

At the Animation panel at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, we were treated to the first ten minutes of Pixar’s Halloween special, Toy Story of Terror, where the toys of Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story films experience horrifying moments at a haunted roadside hotel, so it seems.

Needless to say there are numerous laugh-inducing jokes in this footage. We first find Woody, Buzz, Mr. Potato Head, Jessie, Trixie, Rex, and Mr. Pricklepants watching an old horror film on a DVD player in the trunk of a car – driven by Bonnie’s mother. Their drive takes place during a dark and stormy night – no pun intended – and the toys arrive at a haunted hotel. Some of the toys, including Mr. Potato Head and Trixie, want to investigate the hotel room beyond the security of their bag. But then mysterious things happen. They disappear. First Potato Head and then Trixie! The other toys search for them, but one by one they are snatched by an unknown, mysterious being. Jessie is all alone in the bathroom, not sure where to head next. Jessie then finds a somewhat-deranged soldier toy warning her about the terrifying situation. Cut!

Disney Pixar Toy Story Of Terror Halloween Special

The 10-minute scene was highlighted by hilarious moments, including each toy’s unexpected snatching. Sudden moments make the special a little haunting – but in the family-friendly manner one would expect from Disney. I cannot wait to see more!

This 30-minute special will, no doubt, be a hit for ABC when it premieres on network this October and can also potentially serve as the platform for Pixar to make even more ventures into the “TV special” format.

Catch Toy Story of Terror on October 16 at 8/7c on ABC!

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 before they all suffer the same fate in this “Toy Story OF TERROR!” From director Angus MacLane and producer Galyn Susman, “Toy Story OF TERROR!” premieres on ABC Oct. 16, 2013.
