Toy Story Double Feature (lost intermissions; 2009)


Toy Story Double Feature intermissions
Status Lost

In 2009 Disney and Pixar theatrically re-released Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3D as a double feature as part of a marketing campaign for the then-upcoming Toy Story 3. Due to the almost three-hour combined run time of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, Disney and Pixar created two different intermissions, one five minutes in length and the other 10 minutes in length, hosted by the characters of both films, to be played between Toy Story and Toy Story 2. This was done to allow moviegoers to take a break between movies without missing any portions of the main features.

Introduction

Before the start of Toy Story; Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the toys introduce themselves and explain how the intermission would work, in Mystery Science Theater 3000-style silhouette.

Intermission

Following the credits of Toy Story; the characters are happy with what they just saw. In one corner of the screen there is either a five-minute or a 10-minute timer that counts down to the start of Toy Story 2. During the intermission, they play trivia about the events, characters, and production of both films. At the end of the intermission, they prepare to watch Toy Story 2, again in MST3K-style silhouette.

Availability

During release, theaters had the choice of either using the five-minute or ten-minute intermission. At the end of the release run, theaters had to return the hard drive containing the movie and files to Disney. Since the intermissions were made specifically for the double feature release of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, it has not seen a home release. With the difficulty of pirating a 3D movie and the prior commercial home media releases of both movies, it is unlikely that someone made a bootleg of the intermission.

Unfortunately it's lost. It's only reason for existing is to give viewers the opportunity to watch if they don't want to leave during intermission, but the viewer won't miss anything crucial if they leave (kind of like the "waiting in line" displays at Disney World). It's not a great loss since I recall all the trivia and behind the scenes stuff is available on other releases, but we still don't have the minor commentary and jokes that were given by the characters.

I saw this double feature. Had no idea these were lost. The one thing I remember was a "word scramble" segment where you had to figure out the characters' names. Hamm's was just spelled "Hamm", and the two m's switched places. Thought that was hilarious.

It's a bummer that this stuff hasn't been released on home video as an extra. I own these movies multiple times (VHS, the 2 pack DVD combo and the Blu Rays). A shame they weren't thrown in
