Oh look! Our beloved Pixar toys are back!
But before we begin, we’ve gotta say that these brand new characters from the upcoming Pixar “Toy Story” holiday special are going to be the most epic action figures we have ever seen. What, you don’t believe us?
If the above characters look incredibly familiar to you, well, that’s because the poster was drawn by iconic comic artist Mike Mignola (who also illustrated “Hellboy”)! The poster for the film was released before the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) and the comic-con panel will be giving away posters to fans who attend the convention.
Back to our story!
It has been confirmed that ABC’s holiday special for Pixar’s “Toy Story” franchise is going to take us down memory lane this Christmas. The “Toy Story” holiday special will retain its recurring characters, such as Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Tim Allen) and Woody (Tom Hanks).
Together with the “old gang”, the toys will embark on a new journey. And perhaps get up to some measure of mischief. When the gang accidentally sets foot in an uncharted territory, the film will introduce the new set awesome characters, led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd).
Apparently, these new action-figures-looking characters will pose as a threat to the gang. However, as plastic as action figures are, they will have absolutely zero knowledge about their origins. In fact, Toy Story’s alumni prehistoric characters e.g. Kristen Schaal’s Trixie and Wallace Shawn’s Rex, will confuse them even further.
Quite an interesting storyline, don’t you think? Too bad we are missing out all these cool stuff but now we totally don’t mind watching the re-run of Toy Story trilogy!
