Toy Story - Small Fry

Time to meet… Buzz? Yep, it's 'lil Buzz, or Happy Meal-toy Buzz! There's a new Pixar short film attached to The Muppets in theaters later this month called Small Fry, featuring most of the beloved Toy Story toy cast, and some brand new toys. USA Today reveals the first look photo (we have another one below via Pixar Times) featuring Buzz Lightyear, both big and small. "It's like the Prince and the Pauper tale for toys," says writer/director Angus MacLane. "Except one of them happens to be 3 inches tall." I've seen the short and it's hilarious, worth going to theaters for this alone. I wouldn't be surprised if this lil guy is based on reality.

Small Fry is directed by Pixar's Angus MacLane, a veteran animator at the studio since A Bug's Life, who also directed the short BURN-E on the Wall-E DVD. "There's something funny about having the action hero have to deal with something very mundane like escaping from an awkward social situation," MacLane says, referring to the plot of the short, about how big Buzz and Happy Meal Buzz switch, with big Buzz ending up at a roundtable meeting of "forgotten toys" that were "really popular before the meal." Pixar's Small Fry will show in front of Disney's The Muppets in theaters starting November 23rd, this Thanksgiving. Go see it!
