Giving “The Simpsons” a run for their money this Halloween season, Woody and the gang are set to star in their very own Halloween special, titled “Toy Story of Terror!” Check out the first clip, and look for it October 16th at 8/7c on ABC!
From Pixar, “Toy Story of Terror” follows the adventures of the toys post-Toy Story 3, in which a fun road trip takes a very unexpected turn. “Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom, and the toys are in the trunk,” producer Galyn Susman says. “Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel, and all kinds of chaos ensues.”
While “Terror” will include Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), and Rex (Wallace Shawn), Jessie (Joan Cusack) will have 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, will be featured, while we’ll also get to actually meet Combat Carl, who briefly appeared in the first film when he was blown up by Sid, who will be voiced by Carl Weathers.
The special will have a horror feel after one of the toys goes missing at the motel. The rest of the gang will find 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.
