When the original Toy Story hit theaters in 1995 it captured audiences like never before with a story that was not only fun and heartwarming, but also literally toyed with our child hood imaginations. Since then the film has spawned two big screen sequels, shorts and two TV specials. Now their Halloween TV special Toy Story of Terror is coming home to Blu-ray and DVD.
In Toy Story of Terror, the toys go on a road trip, but a flat tire leads Bonnie and her mother to spend the night in a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others begin to search for it, but they too are picked off one by one. The toys discover that they are being targeted by the hotel manager's pet iguana, Mr. Jones, but can they escape to make it back to Bonnie or will they be stuck in this horrifying ordeal forever? This film brings all the regular class back including Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Timothy Dalton, Don Rickles, and Wallace Shawn making sure that it never loses that feel from the big budget series. The story is pretty simple, but fun with the way they have crafted it into almost a kid’s horror film. As always the animation is perfection and the attention to details is second to none. While this film is only around 22 minutes long it still manages to have the same care and detail as the theatrical films in the series. This film is the perfect chance to spend more time with these beloved characters and become not only standard viewing fun, but could be a new must watch during October.
You would be hard pressed to find someone that does not love the Tory Story films so there is no doubt that this latest release will be a must have for any fan of the series. Not only does this release feature the TV special, but also includes the three Toy Story Toons, ‘Small Fry’, ‘Hawaiian Vacation’, and ‘Partysaurus Rex’ as well as deleted scenes, vintage toy commercials, commentary and more. Be sure to grab this must have addition to any Disney collection when Toy Story of Terror hits Blu-ray and DVD on August 19th.
