Writer-director Angus MacLane, creator of Pixar’s magical short, Presto, and the Wall-E spin-off, Burn-E.talked about the new 7 minute animated short, Small Fry, reuniting the Toy Story gang as well as introducing some new friends:
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 toon features voices of some cast regulars from the previous Toy Story movies and Jane Lynch (Glee) will be lending her larynx to a role, but I’ll let it be surprise. The short will be shown before screenings of The Muppets opening in theaters 11/23/11.
