A Sneak Peek at the New Toy Story Short Film

If you’ve been wondering how Andy’s toys are doing with their new owner Bonnie, you absolutely need to see Cars 2 in theatres this summer. Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Barbie (Jodi Benson), Ken (Michael Keaton), and the rest of the gang return in Pixar’s newest short, Hawaiian Vacation.

Barbie and Ken are still living at Sunnyside, and decide to stow away in Bonnie’s back pack so she will take them with her to Hawaii. Barbie and Ken have it all planned out; once they arrive in Hawaii, they will share their first kiss under a Hawaiian sunset. But Barbie and Ken only make it as far as Bonnie’s bedroom. Will Barbie and Ken ever get to have that smoldering kiss?

Check out the first few seconds of Hawaiian Vacation:

Interestingly enough, for a long time the Toy Story movies were my least favorite of Pixar films. Now having seen them a billion times because my daughter loves Buzz and Woody, I now love the movies too. It was such a fun surprise to be treated to a Toy Story short film to see how everyone has adapted to their new homes. I couldn’t stop laughing throughout the whole film. Barbie and Ken in Toy Story 3 were my absolute favorites, so I was super excited this short focused on them.

If you’ve seen it already, what did you think?
