Therefore, as much as we have adored all of the full-length Toy Story features (and are already eagerly anticipating the fourth installment!), we also clamor to watch any of the fantastic shorter films that have been released as well.
And, as of today, we now have the ability to watch a hilarious animated Toy Story adventure whenever we choose thanks to the release of Toy Story That Time Forgot!
Available for the first time on Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, Toy Story That Time Forgot stars everyone's favorite Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the rest of the gang for an unforgettable holiday tale.
During one of Bonnie's post-Christmas play dates, the crew find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. Will the group be able to escape from the clutches of the new, seemingly-evil character Reptillus Maximus?
It's all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to ever return to Bonnie's room!
Even though Toy Story That Time Forgot has a short running time of approximately 22 minutes, there is still plenty of action and adventure to make this a favorite. Even better, there are tons of bonus features that all Toy Story fans are sure to want to watch time and again:
