See The Official New Toy Story Stop Motion Adventure

If Toy Story were real, which I’ve just recently admitted to myself it isn’t, then it would probably look something like this new stop motion animation from Disney and Mattel.

There’s a live action intro before we segue into the kind of adventure story that kicked off the first and third Toy Story feature films. Apparently, real kids came up with the various plot elements,

Now, if only Mattel can come up with toys that have articulated faces, then we could have another one of these that would really be amazing.

One caveat though: Woody in a spacesuit? Seriously? No thanks.

The Pixar Times had the following stats on the project, which appear to be dumbed down a little but still make sense:

  • It took a crew of 8 people over more than 1300 hours and a span of 4 weeks to complete the toymation
  • Every second needed 12 frames of pictures
  • Every shot needed at least 3 takes, many of which had to be done separately with each toy and then composited together later
  • Each toy had to be taken apart and reassembled with wire and museum putty in order to be rigged properly to animate
  • The dust bunnies were created from an old carpet the team almost threw out right before production on the toymation project began
  • The crew made 5 trips to the supermarket to clear out their asparagus, big broccoli heads, and artichokes to build the vegetable forest set
