Rex, the Tyrannosaurus Rex from the Toy Story films, is a misunderstood dinosaur. Although he is in the form of a terrifying tyrannosaurus rex, the toy is hilariously skiddish and has a heart of gold. But after taking a back seat for so long, Rex is finally getting a short of his own. Check out the image preview here below of this short, titled Partysaurus Rex, which will be attached to the Finding Nemo 3D re-release.
Hereâ€™s what Partysaurus Rex director Mark Walsh (animator for previous Pixar films like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille) told Entertainment Weekly:
â€œIf youâ€™re a bath toy you get really intense playtime. Itâ€™s like a party. Then when the water goes down you canâ€™t move. Youâ€™re helpless. And thatâ€™s pathetic, these guys in bottom of the tub all the time.â€
Wallace Shawn, the actor who voices Rex, said this about Rex being the star of his very own short.
â€œHeâ€™s sick of being the angel of goodness and sensibleness and caution and fear. He wants to stand on the side of pleasure and happiness and joy. â€¦ I live this drama every day of my life!â€
Partysaurus Rex is attached to the Finding Nemo 3D re-release, which opens in theaters on September 14.
