Today, in Salt Lake City, Disney held its annual shareholders meeting, as CEO Bob Iger took the stage to discuss the company’s past success and plans for the future. The attendees were also surprised with a viewing of the upcoming short, Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation. The six-minute short is scheduled to debut in theaters alongside Pixar’s 2011 feature film, Cars 2.
Attendees were excited to be some of the first members of the public to view the continuing adventures of the Toy Story gang, as the short had only really been seen by those inside (or directly involved with) Pixar and Disney. A few tweeters who were in the audience revealed that they enjoyed the short. In fact, the short actually seemed to be the highlight of the meeting for some members. It is not surprising to hear that the team at Pixar has churned out another great short.
Once the short hits theaters we can all make our own final judgements and see how well Pixar handles the Toy Story Toon after that fantastic ending in the third feature film. We have no doubt that the transition will be managed beautifully.
Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation rides into theaters with Cars 2 on June 24th!
