Toy Story has been one of the most beloved Pixar franchises, receiving a number of movies, sequels, spinoffs, video games, toy releases, and more since the original movie’s debut in 1995. Now, at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Toy Story directors unveiled a brand new entry into the Toy Story franchise: a TV holiday special titled “Toy Story That Time Forgot”!



Unveiled as an exclusive poster, “Toy Story That Time Forgot” was expended upon at SDCC’s Toy Story panel, where directors and voice actors got to talk about the upcoming special as well as show off short clips. The special will take place after Toy Story 3, where Woody, Buzz, and company, now under ownership of a young girl named Bonnie, meet up with a retro-styled group of toys called the Battlesaurs. The poster art shows off the Battlesaurs decked out in armor and weaponry, and even shows Toy Story 3’s triceratops toy Trixie sporting a similar battle-ready motif! Trixie is set to have a major role in the special, working as a link between Bonnie’s toys and the Battlesaurs. The special, which will premiere on ABC on December 2nd, 2014, will also serve as the basis for a new line of Toy Story figures and collectibles, including the new Battlesaurs.
