With just a day to go before its home video release, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released a deleted scene as well as another clip from the ‘Team of Specialists’ bonus feature from ‘Toy Story of TERROR!,’ available to own on Blu-ray on August 19, 2014 (now available for pre-order), along with Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere releases. You can find both clips embedded below.
‘Toy Story OF TERROR!’ makes its in-home debut loaded with never-before-seen bonus features, including three Vintage Toy Commercials, which can be viewed as act breaks during the film or separately with Director Introductions. Additional all-new bonus features include Audio Commentary, Deleted Scenes with Editor Introductions and ‘Team of Specialists,’ in which director Angus MacLane goes deep behind the scenes to introduce the team of specialists required to make this fun-filled Toy Story adventure!
The deleted ‘Pencil Topper’ scene is actually one of three scenes that compromise the ‘Pencil Topper Trilogy’ — a set of deleted scenes shown in animatics — which incorporated another new character, one of those rubbery pencil toppers. In this scene, he is discovered while Jessie takes on the hotel’s resident iguana, Mr. Jones, with the assistance of Mr. Potato Head’s arm in a way that eventually played out very differently in the finished special.
In the ‘Designing Mr. Jones’ clip, Pixar takes us behind-the-scenes and up close and personal with a live iguana brought to the studio to serve as a model and inspiration for the dog-like Mr. Jones from the television special:
Additional in-home special features include three ‘Toy Story Toons’ shorts: ‘Small Fry,’ ‘Partysaurus Rex’ and ‘Hawaiian Vacation’ — each with Audio Commentary; and the rarely seen, especially spooky teaser created for the D23 fan conference. Also available only on Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) is a new short piece about film references featuring Mr. Pricklepants and a Bonus Deleted Scene with Editor’s Introduction.
