As Halloween rapidly approaches, AWN reports that Disney•Pixar is already eyeing Halloween 2013 for a new scary TV special around the Toy Story franchise. Named Toy Story of Terror, all we have at the moment is this promotional banner and the following description:
What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this Toy Story of Terror.
Don’t think Toy Story can/should do terror? Lest we forget the magnificently scary scenes in the original Toy Story (1995), in which Sid created freakish playthings out of the parts of other toys. Then there was that monkey in Toy Story 3 (2010).
While the series has come to an end with the Oscar-winning Toy Story 3 several Toy Story Toons have been released over the last few years in front of other Pixar releases. This marks the first foray into television for the franchise since the cinematic close of the series.
