Disney Pixar has released the first photo from Toy Story: Small Fry, a new animated short which will be attached to prints of The Muppets hitting theaters November 23. Click on the photo below, which features Woody (Tom Hanks) examining a miniature version of Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). You can also read on below the photo for more on this new short.
We first reported on Toy Story: Small Fry back in August, but there were no details given about the plot line. New story details have emerged, and the short will center on a mini version of Buzz Lightyear, who breaks out of its display case and captures the real Buzz Lightyear. Here's what director Angus MacLane had to say about Toy Story: Small Fry.
"It's like the Prince and the Pauper tale for toys. Except one of them happens to be 3 inches tall. These toys' existence is about being really popular before the meal and then being totally forgotten about. And sometimes they don't even get played with."
After being kidnapped, Buzz Lightyear encounters a support group for toys who are never played with. Teddy Newton will voice Mini Buzz, while Glee star Jane Lynch lends her voice to Neptuna, the support group's leader. Here's what Angus MacLane had to say about Jane Lynch.
"Jane has an appealing way of being demeaning to people but where you still like her - even though she's kind of horrible. Right away, she got the character."
