Pixar continues to roll out Toy Story shorts, and this Halloween we’ll be getting another one. Disney has announced that they’ll be releasing Toy Story of Terror on ABC. According to TV Guide, the short will be 30-minutes long, and has the toys staying in a motel after Bonnie takes them on a road trip only to have the car break down along the way. Once inside the spooky motel, one of the toys goes missing, and “the rest of the gang will find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate.” The short will appeal to kids, but adults should enjoy references to Psycho, Aliens, and Predator. One of the Predator references could be the return of Combat Carl (from the first movie), who will be voiced by Carl Weathers. The gang will be joined by Toy Story 3 toys, Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton) and Trixie (Kristen Schaal).

Executive producer Galyn Susman tells TV Guide this new short will focus more on Jesse (Joan Cusack), but we’re also going to see the new dynamic between Bonnie, her new toys (i.e. Andy’s old toys), and her previous toys. The building of this dynamic could also be a way of moving towards a new Pixar sequel, which might be Toy Story 4. Whatever that unnamed sequel turns out to be, fans will still get their Toy Story fix this October in what sounds like a fun new adventure.
