New Toy Story Toon revealed: Mythic Rock

Last week, readers got their first glimpse of the Toy Story of Terror TV special. Now word has arrived on another Toy Story project in the works: Mythic Rock, as listed on the résumé of Pixar producer Kim Jorgensen Adamsthe. Mythic Rock appears to be the latest entry in the Toy Story Toons line of shorts, following Hawaiian Vacation, Small Fry and Partysaurus Rex. At this time, the short’s plot is unknown, as the title could refer to anything from Buzz finding a moon rock to Bonnie adopting a pet rock to the toys having a jam session. What is known, however, is that if the short follows the tradition of its predecessors, it will be attached to one of Walt Disney Pictures’ theatrical features – although guessing which feature might be a tricky endeavor…

Pixar’s Monsters University already has The Blue Umbrella attached this June, while Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen is rumored to have the Mickey Mouse short Get a Horse in November. Unless Disney changes its usual game plan and attaches the short to a more teen/adult-centered film like The Lone Ranger or Thor: The Dark World, then only two features appear to be candidates for Mythic Rock: this summer’s Planes and next March’s The Muppets…Again! With that in mind, the magazine ToyWorld advertised last year that an untitled Toy Story Toon would premiere in spring 2013. Since that time has already passed, perhaps audiences should anticipate the short sooner rather than later.
