It’s been just a little over a year since Disney and Pixar brought the Toy Story franchise full circle, from Andy to Bonnie, with last summer’s Toy Story 3. However, even with the film’s bittersweet closure, fans have been wondering (Buzz-ing, even) about a fourth sequel since the credits rolled on the third film. And while Mattel isn’t exactly stepping forth to announce Toy Story 4, they did something almost as cool; animating a Toy Story short film using the actual Toy Story toys! The entire spot was created using toys from a new line, Toy Story: Space Mission, during a 4 week toymation filming session, where each character is all geared up in special outfits. Take a look at the animated short, as well as shots of the toy line!
Buzz, Woody, and Rex have gone to outer space to defeat the evil Emperor Zurg! AND they’re doing it in space style, with new action figures and space ship from Mattel featuring Woody and Rex in space suits for the first time and a slick new look for Buzz too! Catch the all new Toy Story “toymation” adventure made with real toys, stop-motion animation and a wild imagination! Take a trip in the Command Center and let us know how you would defeat the evil Emperor Zurg.
