First Look: Toy Story Short – Partysaurus Rex
Pixar has released a couple of first look photos at their new Toy Story short film Partysaurus Rex. In the short Bonnie takes Rex into the bathtub with her. Rex is sick of being feared by the other toys. Rex puts his tiny arms to good use by turning on the water and getting the party going for those dried-out toys, which leads to a bubble-filled rave, complete with glow-in-the-dark toys making disco and dance music provided by Grammy-nominated electronica musician BT. Partysaurus Rex will be shown with Finding Nemo 3D on September 14, 2012. Check out more below.
Director Mark Walsh says:
If you’re a bath toy you get really intense playtime. It’s like a party. Then when the water goes down you can’t move. You’re helpless. And that’s pathetic, these guys in bottom of the tub all the time.
What I was going for was, you move to a new town and make new friends, and suddenly you think you have this chance where you can reinvent yourself. I love that Rex, in his sweetness, thinks he can reinvent who he is in the image of a party animal.
It looks we’re going to get to see Rex at his craziest, which should be fun! There’s also a couple little easter eggs in the images such as Peach the starfish from Finding Nemo, and the furry Sully toilet seat cover.
