Plot of Pixar’s new pre-CARS 2/TOY STORY short leaked
Yar! Beware! There be spoilers ahead!
Known not only for their achievements in animation but also the caliber of their content, Pixar’s shorts that proceed their films are as looked forward to as the films that follow. So, when a synopsis for a new children’s book gives us a few clues to their next mini-movie, it’s the cat’s pajamas ’round these parts (It’s a Pixar kind of day on the news front). And if anyone can actually send me a photo of a cat in pajamas, I imagine that phrase will take on a whole new meaning for me in my life.
Anywho, Amazon.com has just listed a new 16-page paperback book from Disney/Random House Publishers entitled Play-cation! due out August 9, 2011. Apparently, it is connected to Pixar and TOY STORY as well.
Read on for the official synopsis of the book and more on how this may reveal the plot of Pixar’s next animated short.
Bonnie is off to Hawaii, and Barbie and Ken are excited to go along on their first tropical vacation! But when they’re accidentally left behind, it’s up to Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the toys to create a Hawaiian paradise right in Bonnie’s room.
Based on the latest animated short featuring the toys from Disney/Pixar Toy Story, this full-color storybook includes punch-out postcards that girls and boys ages 3-7 will love sending to their friends!
So there you have it buckaroos and space rangers. I guess we haven’t seen the last of Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the toy box toons. The Pixar Blog seems to think that this synopsis is evidence that the TOY STORY short will appear before CARS 2 on June 24th. Why? Because “Earlier this year, the Day & Night picture book was published around the same time in August, after the short had debuted with Toy Story 3 in June.” Makes sense. Not to mention that rumor has it the short has been known around toon town as HAWAII.
If this turns out to be true, this would be Pixar’s first theatrical short to be directly based off one of their previous films. Seems fitting as CARS 2 is their first sequel to a previous property since the TOY STORY trilogy.
