Blu-ray Release: Toy Story That Time Forgot
By John Corrado
After premiering on TV last year, Disney is releasing the holiday special Toy Story That Time Forgot on Blu-ray today. The short film takes place just after Christmas, when Bonnie (Emily Hahn) goes on a play date to a friend’s house, forcing Trixie (Kristen Schaal) and Rex (Wallace Shawn) to go up against a much more fearsome and delusional group of dinosaur toys.
Like Toy Story of TERROR! before it, Toy Story That Time Forgot is another inventive, incredibly entertaining and heartfelt winner from Pixar, that allows us to spend more time in the company of these beloved play things. Built around great characters and a touching message, this is a charming and wholly entertaining holiday special, that deserves to become a new Christmas classic.
The Blu-ray includes commentary with director Steve Purcell and head of story Derek Thompson, deleted scenes, a karaoke track and a couple of featurettes.
Toy Story That Time Forgot is 22 minutes and rated G.
