Blu-ray Review: Toy Story That Time Forgot (Blu-ray + Digital HD Digital Copy)


Toy Story That Time Forgot is a new 22-minute long special featuring the toys we all love from the Toy Story movies. The animation quality is great, as one would expect Disney and Pixar. It may be on par with the most recent movie but it's been a while since I've seen that so I can't say for sure. Most of the voice cast for the films have returned to reprise their roles which is also great as I think it would be weird to hear impostors.

The story for this episode involves the toys being brought over to someones house by their owner, a young girl named Bonnie, and then being left in a play room while she goes off in another room to play videogames with her friend, Mason. Our cast of toys then encounter the new toys that Mason had gotten for Christmas but had not yet played with. They're called Battlesaurs and are dinosaur-themed warriors, so one of Bonnie's dinosaur toys, Trixie, immediately begins to bond with them. Of course it wouldn't be much of a story if things didn't take a turn for the worse, but I won't spoil any of that.

It's a fun little episode that will likely see airtime each year at Christmas but it's not quite long enough to have a strong emotional impact. At only 22 minutes long it's not really long enough to warrant its own blu-ray release, but thankfully they did include extras on the disc to provide a bit more content. There is a making-of featurette called REptillus!, an opening animation for the fictional Battlesaurs TV show, some deleted scenes that have intros to explain why they were deleted, an audio commentary, a karaoke video for the song "My Unexpected Friend", and some trailers.
