First Image And Details Of Toy Story: Small Fry

They’re back.

Running before The Muppets is a new Toy Story Short, following on from the splendid Hawaiian Vacation. This time, the film is called Small Fry and when I show you a still from it, you’ll see why.

How very Napoleonic he looks.
USA Today have a few choice quotes from writer-director Angus MacLane, the man who previously created Pixar’s magical short, Presto, and the Wall-E spin-off, Burn-E. Here’s some of what he said:
It’s like the Prince and the Pauper tale for toys. Except one of them happens to be three inches tall.
[Happy Meal] toys’ existence is about being really popular before the meal and then being totally forgotten about, and sometimes they don’t even get played with.
There’s something funny about having the action hero have to deal with something very mundane like escaping from an awkward social situation.
The seven minute toon features a host of regular voices, plus semi-legendary animation story guy, animator and director Teddy Newton as the mini-Buzz and Jane Lynch has a role too, though I think it be more fun to not tell you what it is.

Small Fry is the second of three Toy Story Shorts in the first planned wave. It seems that Pixar’s Brave is being accompanied with La Luna, so my best guess for where the third will appear is, so far, before Wreck-It Ralph, a year from now. That can’t be right, can it?
