First trailer for ‘Toy Story’ Halloween TV special – watch

Spooky 30-minute adventure featuring Woody and the gang is set to premiere in October

The first trailer for Toy Story‘s Halloween TV special has been released. Watch it below.

Titled Toy Story Of TERROR!, the 30-minute special will premiere on US network ABC on October 16. In the UK and Ireland, it will be available to watch on Sky Movies.

Toy Story favourites Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Mr Potato Head, Mr Pricklepants, Rex and Trixie all feature in the spooky adventure, with Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, Timothy Dalton and Kristen Schaal all supplying their voices again.

Pixar’s official synopsis teases: “What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this Toy Story of TERROR!.

The pixelated playthings were last seen in 2010’s Toy Story 3, which took over $1.06 billion (£660 million) at the box office worldwide to become the highest-grossing animated movie of all-time. It capped off this success by picking up a couple of Oscars the following year.
