Confirming an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today announced that Pixar Animation Studios’ holiday special, ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot,’ will be available to own on Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on November 3rd, 2015 (now available for pre-order).
Disney/Pixar proudly presents a hilarious new animated Toy Story adventure. During one of Bonnie’s post-Christmas play dates, the Toy Story crew find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. It’s all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to ever return to Bonnie’s room. ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot’ is an unforgettable tale packed with family fun and a must-have for every Pixar fan’s collection!
To date, not much has been mentioned so far regarding the 20th anniversary Pixar’s Toy Story (1995), the first full-length computer generated film, though there has been no shortage of expectations for it. So far we’ve been aware of re-issues of merchandise from licensees such as Mattel and Thinkway Toys, but clearly there must be more in store. Surely next week’s D23 Expo should reveal more plans along with the reminiscent panel on Saturday, already announced.
Ahead of any official announcements, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released a teaser trailer for the Blu-ray, digital and Disney Movies Anywhere release of the Pixar Animation Studios’ holiday special, ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot,’ which you can find embedded below.

The Walt Disney Company and the IMAX Corporation today announced that their exhibition agreement has been extended through 2017 and includes films from Walt Disney Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm and Pixar Animation Studios.

As a lead-in to a promotion for the Blu-ray release of ‘Toy Story of TERROR!,’ Walt Disney Studios Japan has offered a first look at what could be the official logo commemorating the 20th anniversary of Toy Story. The first feature-length computer generated film, Toy Story was first in theaters on November 22, 1995 and has since produced two sequels (with Toy Story 4 on the way, co-directed by John Lasseter and Josh Cooley), as well as multiple television specials. You can find the promo embedded below. At this time, there is no indication as to whether this will indeed be the official logo or if another logo will be used entirely domestically or if there will be multiple logos featuring other characters.
With an originally advertised release date of March 17, 2015 looming dangerously near with no official mention of the Toy Story 20th Anniversary entry in the Disney Music Emporium’s Legacy Collection, several readers have reached out to us asking if we had any additional information. We, in turn, have reached out to Disney Music to confirm rumors that the Toy Story album may be delayed and we regret to report that a delay has in fact been confirmed to us. While we have seen reports about a May release, the information given to us by Disney Music was not quite as optimistic, offering only that the release date is officially ‘to be determined’ and Disney is hopeful that it is ready for release by the time Disney D23 Expo happens in August. Specific reasons for its delay were not provided, however it is interesting to note that one of the titles — Cinderella — was announced for an early release at the Expo, but has been moved up by over a month.
Nominations for the 42nd Annual Annie Awards were announced earlier today, honoring the best animation in film, television, video games and beyond for the previous year. The Walt Disney Company made a strong showing, as one might expect, with Big Hero 6 and ‘Disney’s Mickey Mouse’ cartoons, but Craig McCracken’s ‘Wonder Over Yonder’ on Disney XD is also respectable in its showing, while new series ‘Star Wars Rebels’ struggled to make an impact with just one nomination, as did ‘Sofia the First’ which failed to show at all.
On December 2, ABC will premiere the second half-hour television special from Pixar Animation Studios, ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot.’ A follow-up to the Halloween-ish ‘Toy Story of TERROR,’ ‘Time Forgot’ is billed as a holiday special, taking place a couple of days after Christmas.
Slated for a June 16, 2017 release, Disney Chairman and CEO Robert I get today announced that ‘Toy Story 4’ is currently under development and is being directed by John Lasseter. The announcement was made during a press call discussing The Walt Disney Company’s fiscal year.
In addition, Iger noted that the troubled Pixar film, ‘The Good Dinosaur’ will be released in 2016. UPDATE: Pixar has confirmed the date has not changed.
