The art of animation goes "to infinity and beyond" as Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios, a Northern California-based pioneer in computer graphics, join creative forces on the infinitely entertaining "Toy Story," the first full-length animated feature to be created entirely by artists using computer tools and technology. Four years in the making, this delightfully irreverent new comedy-adventure combines an imaginative story and great characters with the visual excitement of 3-D computer-generated animation. Conceived and directed by John Lasseter, a former Disney animator whose innovative work with Pixar includes the 1989 Oscar-winning short, "Tin Toy," this film represents a major milestone in animated moviemaking with its groundbreaking graphic style adding to the believability of a world where toys have a life of their own. With a cast of top vocal talent headed by Tom Hanks and Tim Allen plus three entertaining new songs and an inspired score by renowned composer/performer Randy Newman, the fantasy takes flight and provides extraordinary delights for moviegoers of all ages.
Forget about Bates Motel and Motel Hello, the scariest motel of all is the one found in the trailer for Toy Story of TERROR!, the first Halloween special from the Toy Story gang. Watch as Bonnie takes Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the rest of her beloved bucket of childhood memories on vacation, where they are all forced to spend the night in one very spooky motel. When one of the toys goes missing, the rest of the gang gets caught up in a mystery that must be solved, or they will all suffer the same horrible fate. Coming to ABC October 16.
