Toy Story That Time Forgot Blu-ray Review

Toy Story That Time Forgot Blu-ray

“Toy Story That Time Forgot” is another charming special.

In “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” Bonnie takes Woody, Trixie, Buzz, Rex, and Angel Kitty over to her friend Mason’s house to play. Upon arrival, Bonnie sees that Mason is more concerned with video games so she dumps her toys into his playroom. The room is FILLED to the brim with toys including an entire collection of Battlesaurs. As Woody, Buzz, and company explore the room, they wind up getting into some trouble with the Battlesaurs who don’t know they are toys. Also added into the mix is a key subplot involving Trixie (the female triceratops toy).

Having been a fan of all of the “Toy Story” shorts and specials up until this point, it’s no surprise that “Toy Story That Time Forgot” is another winner. In fact, it just might be the best of the lot to date.

Even though the story’s concept of toys not knowing they are toys is touched upon in the first film, it is done in a way that feels fresh here thanks to the introduction of the Battlesaurs characters. The Battlesaurs (which are a cross between toylines like “He-Man” and “Thundercats”) are fully fleshed out creations that have been given their own interesting mythology. They are so engaging, in fact, that you wish this toyline existed and was made into a series all its own!

Perhaps the most rewarding thing about this special is that there are a lot of deep ideas being explored here in a mere 22 minutes. The story tackles subjects such as getting meaning out of life, one’s place and purpose, and the power of imagination. It’s all rather touching and deep, but that’s certainly nothing new from the consistently reliable Pixar.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? Simply put, this is another flawless transfer.

Audio Track: 7.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? The 7.1 track really goes that extra mile. You can really hear it here.
