Toy Story short "Hawaiian Vacation"

With the world set to retun to the world of TOY STORY prior to Pixar’s upcoming film, CARS 2, the short film entitled HAWAIIAN VACATION has become one of the more talked about short films in some time.

Starring the series’ massive cast, including the likes of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Michael Keaton, Jodi Benson, Joan Cusack, Wallace Shawn, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, Blake Clark, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Kristen Schaal, Jeff Garlin, and John Ratzenberger, the film follows Barbie and Ken as they plan and go on a vaction. Hijinks will likely ensue, all in one of the year’s most hyped pieces of animation.

Now, thanks to HeyUGuys, we have our first little clip from the film, and it does look absolutely wonderful. Check it out after the break!

Directed by Gary Rydstrom (LIFTED), the short seems really solid, and I must say, both Barbie and Ken were welcome additions to the franchise’s cast of characters, so any excuse to see them back on the big screen is fine by me. The short runs in front of CARS 2, starting on July 22.
