While all remains quiet on the possibility of Toy Story 4, Pixar have thrown fans of Woody and Buzz a not inconsiderable bone in the form of an upcoming short to precede The Muppets.
Entitled Small Fry, the short follows in the footsteps of Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation in welcoming back the entire gang for another slice of animated fun. Attendees at this weekend’s D23 expo were treated to a small clip which gave away a few of the plot points involved.
This time around, Buzz finds himself left behind at a fast food restaurant and must find his own way home. Nothing revolutionary there then, with the old “lost toy” angle one that we’ve seen a few times before.
However, there should still be plenty of fun to be had in the form of the new characters he meets along the way. One notable new addition will be a mermaid voiced by the ever-hilarious Jane Lynch, she of Glee and Role Models.
The Muppets opens Stateside on November 23. UK fans waiting for their next fix of toy-based goodness will have a little longer to wait, with the film set to arrive on February 10 2012. As for the next full-length Toy Story, well we’ll just have to wait and see…
