The Muppets Getting A Toy Story Short
Have you ever been simultaneously shocked by two things at once? That's how I feel right now. Not only am I shocked about the subject matter of this news article, I am equally shocked Cinema Blend head honcho Josh Tyler has yet to report it. With all due respect to his wife, I'm pretty sure that man only has three passions in life and this story incorporates two of them. The third, the Dallas Mavericks, played tonight. I suspect that's why he took a pass, leaving it to me to underwhelmingly report on his other two passions. The Toy Story franchise is putting together a second short, and it will run before The Muppets. It's like Christmas morning with freshly made bacon or a naked chick introducing you to another naked chick.
According to Bleeding Cool, the news came out in an investor's meeting today in which Disney also premiered the long-awaited Hawaiian Stay-Cation Toy Story short that will run in front of Cars 2 this summer. Normally, I'm not the world's biggest sequel guy, but I can't get enough of Buzz, Woody, Mr. Potato Head, Mrs. Potato Head and Rex. They could do one of these shorts a year for the rest of my life, and I still wouldn't be satiated.
Jason Segel's take on The Muppets comes out at Thanksgiving. It seems every live actor in the world is already involved; so, it only makes sense the best animation has to offer would somehow hone in. No word on what the premise might be, but considering Pixar is behind it, whatever they come up with will somehow be perfect.
