The plot of the Toy Story short in front of Cars 2 revealed

01.03.2011by:

SPOILERS!

...if you really care about knowing what the few-minute short in front of CARS 2 is going to consist of, which I think is safe to say won't feature any massive plot twists.

I'd heard previously that the short featuring Toy Story characters, was going to focus on Ken and Barbie, but this synopsis (pulled from an upcoming storybook about the bit) further elaborates on that.

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.

That's great, and I'm sure it will be charming, but does that mean this is in place of the original short we see in front of every Pixar movie? I really do look forward to those, and it seems rather easy to just have old characters being funny for three minutes. But hey whatever, Pixar can do what they want. And I what I hope they want next is to make an INCREDIBLES sequel.

Seeing the Cars 2 trailer in front of Tron: Legacy almost made me scratch my eyes out. The only thing that saved me was remembering that I was about to see Tron in all of it's IMAX 3D glory.

Wall-e is my. Favorite pixar movie so far. Toy story 3 and up are at a close second.

I dony get why cars has a sequel, i'd be up for a 4th toy story, following bonnie.

Cars better than A Bug's Life

I love Pixar and will see anything with their name on it. I don't get all the hate over cars. I recently watched Bug's for the second time in years and it was hard to get through. Very slow paced. I feel Bug's is Pixar's weakest.

I'm down for anything involving Toy Story. They have those characters and that world on lock. I'm sure it will be something cool to say the least.

As much as I can't stand Larry the Cable Guy and anything remotely redneck related I still loved Cars. I thought it was better than Incredibles and Monsters INC. As for the Toy Story short, this sounds pretty fun.

Stop complaining. Pixar has given you 4 movies in a row that are as enjoyable for adults as they are for their kids, if not more so. I didn't like the first Cars very much, but they are making it for the children who DID. Get off their balls, please.

Hm...

Toy Story 3 was my favourite film of 2010, but I still wasn't as into the Barbie and Ken gags as some were. I was looking forward to seeing all of those characters again in some form, a lot more than I was looking forward to Cars 2. Shame they're only really focusing on Barbie and Ken...

I fucking LOVE Pixar but there is noway in hell I'm seeing this. The original Cars did nothing for me and after seeing an entire Cars aisle in the toy section at Target the other day this just screams "milking it". Not a fan of this move.

So when it gets like a 95 on Rotten Tomatoes and everyone says it's better than the first you'll still choose not to see it?

why would that happen? I saw the trailer and it looks the same... but if I hear it being praised constantly I might have to check it out.

Call me a heartless bastard and give me thumbs down all you want, but I didn't even like Toy Story 3 all that much. Or at least not as much as everyone else did.

If making CARS 2 means they can make ten original movies, then I'm all for it. They can go ahead and make CARS 3, 4 and 5 for all I care.

That shit made mad money for Pixar and children, especially boys, absolutely love the CARS universe. My girlfriend's four-year-old is obsessed with it.

So you enjoy THE INCREDIBLES or WALL-E more... guess what, Pixar will keep making original movies for many years to come.

Am I alone here...

...or am I more looking forward to seeing Ken and Barbie for 3 minutes over 90 of an unnecessary Cars sequel? The Incredibles, on the other hand, has so much potential for legitimate, interesting story. Oh, and I think Geri's Game will stay with me until I'm the old, senile dude playing chess with his Id :P.

As a PIXAR fan, I feel the same way about Cars as the rest of the posters here. As a Disney stockholder, I am happy they are doing a Cars sequel. It is one of the only Disney franchises that gets toys and merch sold to boys. Now that Disney has Marvel, that is no longer the case. But when Cars 2 was greenlit, it was.

Pixar is becoming full of sequels :(

Pixar use to be notorious for their ambitious and original stories, but now they're just making sequels for the next few years. Cars was their worst film and it's getting a sequel (The Incredibles definitely deserves it) and Monsters Inc. 2 is coming out next year, why Pixar, why?!!

Cant believe I'm saying this...

but im not loving Pixar's upcoming lineup. Cars wasnt even a "cute" movie, it didnt appeal to me at all, so a sequel is of no interest. And "Brave" just doesnt sound or look good so far. I'm cool with Monsters Inc 2 though, waiting on those plot details.

F Cars

I hate Cars. What a waste of time. Give me another Incredibles!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of the best superhero movies ever made, even if it is animated. Pixar is more capable then just giving old characters another shot. One of the best parts of a Pixar movie is the awesome, NEW character driven stories we get to see. It is always a great segway into the feature. It is bad enought that people will have to endure Cars 2. Don't make them watch spin offs of Toy Story now. End.

Did anyone else notice that toy story 3 had the same plot as The Brave Little Toaster?

Every time I read something about Cars 2, I keep reminding myself, "I have faith in Pixar. I have faith in Pixar. I have faith in Pixar. I have faith in Pixar. I have faith in Pixar. I have faith in Pixar." But I really think they might drop the ball on this one...

I couldn't agree more. I like their originality with their films, and I don't have a problem with them doing sequels, I am looking forward to Monsters Inc. 2, I would love to see a second Incredibles, but Cars 2 is being made for one thing only..... children'smoney. Little kids went crazy for the merchandise and the movie was probably one of their weakest. I too think this will be their first miss.
