• Toy Story was my favourite film growing up and the sequels have respected that original classic well so I was a little sceptical about not only the shorts that have appeared before Disney films and most recently, this 30 minute 'special' that debuted on Sky. Now thanks to a limited DVD run I've now been able to see it.

    'Specials' like this are normally poor. Weak storyline and poor replacement voice actors. Thankfully this one bucks the trend and the voice cast contains all the big names like Tim Allen and Tom Hanks. While the story isn't the most original it does link within the franchise that precedes it and the new characters fit in well.

    It's got that same magic Pixar touch and is actually a funny and enjoyable half hour watch. Well done to all involved for making a 'special' that actually lives up to it's name.
