The Walt Disney Company claimed a number of momentous milestones and achievements in 2012, such as boasting the highest-grossing film of the year (Marvel’s The Avengers). But as Disney reached some considerable points, they also faced and developed a handful of issues. This special edition of Disney In Depth looks back at the world of Disney in 2012, with my top 10 best in this edition, and “bottom” 10 worst (with some suggestions on how to remedy those problems) in next week’s edition.
The Pixar team seems really intent on getting the word out that Partysaurus Rex exists. If you didn’t catch it the first time when it was attached in theaters to Finding Nemo 3D, or the other time when it aired earlier this week on the Disney Channel, now you have a third chance to watch it. The short has premiered online, so now you don’t have any excuse to miss this.
Check it out here below.
The misadventures of the Toy Story gang turn its attention to its large but timid dinosaur, Rex. It’s a cute and silly story, but to avoid giving up too much about the short, but let’s just say you if you have a high water bill, you might want to check the toys left behind in the tub.
Toy Story was Pixar’s first full length feature. It has since then spawned two successful sequels and three hilarious animated shorts (Small Fry, Hawaiian Vacation, and Partysaurus Rex). Whether or not there will be a fourth one remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, we will continue to see these characters through a variety of shorts in the future. We recently saw Rex star in his own short called Partysaurus Rex. However, if you weren’t able to see the short, which was attached to Finding Nemo 3D, you will get another chance to see it tonight when the Disney Channel debuts the short at 10:05 PM.

In a Toy Story-related story, we will get to see the gang reunite once more for a holiday-themed TV special called, Toy Story of Terror, which is set for release in 2013. Pixar Times reports that the TV film will feature the Toys taking shelter in a dark roadside motel. When one of the toys goes missing, the gang forms a search party to find the missing. But one by one they start to disappear, and they must find each other or else they will stay missing forever. According to them, the TV special will run about 22 minutes.
Disney continues its re-releasing of films in theaters with the 3D treatment of Finding Nemo hitting the big screen on September 14th. The good news is that we’re going to be treated to a new Toy Story short film titled Partysaurus Rex playing in front of Nemo.
Partysaurus Rex features Rex (voiced by Wallace Shawn), the insecure toy T-Rex in the Toy Story gang. In the short, our favorite toy dinosaur is the star when Bonnie takes him for a dip in the tub.
See some images from Partysaurus Rex and check out a clip from the short here below. And remember to see the whole thing in theaters September 14!
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.
Here’s what Partysaurus Rex director Mark Walsh (animator for previous Pixar films like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille) told Entertainment Weekly:
“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.”
