While the Toy Story saga may have ended this year with the wonderfully perfect concluding chapter Toy Story 3, it looks like that may not be the last time we see the Toy Story gang in action. The short films that precede Disney/Pixar films usually garner nearly as much anticipation and excitement as the films themselves (and rightfully so), and it looks like the short that will play before next summer’s Cars 2 will be a Toy Story one. Disney animator Floyd Norman recently took to Twitter to give some details on the short, saying:
“Ken and Barbie want to go to Hawaii. I don’t know what it’s gonna be attached to. Fun stuff, however.”
Combine that with Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich confirming via his Twitter that a Toy Story short would, in fact, be attached to Cars 2, and it looks like we’ll be getting more of Ken and Barbie next summer (thanks to Stitch Kingdom for putting two and two together). While it’s no Woody and Buzz, Barbie and Ken were one of the highlights of the concluding film, and basically anything Toy Story related is fine by me. Watch the trailer for Cars 2 here, and check out the full flick when it hits theaters on June 24, 2011.
