The toys are returning for another go-around on television.
ABC announced that they will be airing Pixar Animation Studios’ second Toy Story television special, Toy Story That Time Forgot, following up on the last special, Toy Story of Terror!, which aired in Oct. 2013. This time, the Toy Story gang gather after a post-Christmas play date and find themselves facing off against a group of action figures who turn out to be “dangerously delusional.” The gang will need the help of Trixie the triceratops if they ever hope to go back to Bonnie’s room.
Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear, along with Kristen Schaal as Trixie, Kevin McKidd as Reptillus Maximus, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Timothy Dalton as Mr. Pricklepants, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head, and Joan Cusack as Jessie.
Toy Story That Time Forgot premieres Tuesday, Dec. 2, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Last fall, ABC aired a charming Halloween special starring the Toy Story franchise’s beloved playthings. Its ratings success has paved the way for another half-hour that’ll air on the network later this holiday season—and this one has more dinos than the first.
The second special, called Toy Story That Time Forgot, finds the heroes tangling with a gang of new action figures led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd). Much like Buzz Lightyear in the franchise’s first film, Reptillus and his crew don’t know that they’re just toys—which causes some major complications, especially among the gang’s prehistoric set (Kristen Schaal’s Trixie and Wallace Shawn’s Rex).
You can catch your first glimpse at the mighty Reptillus in the special Comic-Con poster above, which debuted on TVLine. If the image looks vaguely familiar, that’s because it was designed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
McKidd and Schaal—not to mention copies of the poster—will be on hand for an hourlong Q&A about Toy Story That Time Forgot in San Diego Thursday, along with director Steve Purcell (who also helmed Brave), head of story Derek Thompson, producer Galyn Susman, and composer Michael Giacchino.
Though there’s no premiere date set yet, Toy Story That Time Forgot is expected to air in December.
Your favorite toys are back! In this exclusive photo of the Toy Story team, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl reunite in ABC’s computer-animated thriller Toy Story OF TERROR! — and they’re not their usual, smiling selves in this exclusive art.
Heading to the small screen before Halloween, Toy Story OF TERROR! features the gang taking a road trip to Bonnie’s grandmother’s house before everything takes an unexpected turn. On a detour leading them to a roadside motel, one of the toys goes missing, and the others find themselves caught in an eerie turn of events that must be stopped before they suffer the same fate.
Toy Story OF TERROR! premieres Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
