Cribbed from the article on the front page...SDCC '14: A Pair Of Prehistoric Posters‘Toy Story That Time Forgot’ Is A 1980′s Nostalgia Bomb That You’re Gonna Love [Comic Con 2014]
The story follows the Toy Story characters in “a post-Christmas play date” that puts them “in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional.” And of course, it wouldn’t be a Toy Story tale if it didn’t involve the toys trying to return home (to Bonnie’s room), this time under the leadership of Trxie the Triceratops.
Before Pixar developed the special they first created the Battlesaur as if it were a real animated series and toy line. Pixar even created a short animated opening for the Battlesaur animated series.
Trixie the Triceratops is the main character of this new story, she even gets her own Battlesaur armor. Voice actor Kristen Schaal describes Trixie as being a dinosaur that survived the ultimate destruction so she has a carefree attitude now. Trixe is a dinosaur but she never gets to play one at Bonnie’s house. So when Bonnie visits her friend Mason’s house, Trixie is eager to play along with other dinosaur-looking toys. But little does she know the Battlesaur toys aren’t playing around, actually believing the toy storyline much in the way Buzz Lightyear did when we first met him.
Reptillus Maximus is the leader of the Battlesaurs. He is refined, cultured, confident and witty. Maximus Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy) provides the voice of Reptillus Maximus, who has the most lines of dialogue in the special.
Maximus’ tribe which consists of Velocitrex, Carniverous, Ray-Gone (a scientist who creates the Battlesaur’s gear) and Malikeai (a wizard-like character). The story also features an Outland beast creature named Goliathon, Pixar’s tribute to Godzilla and Kaiju monsters.
The Battlesaurs are not the only new characters in this new adventure. A new toy joins the Toy Story gang for the journey – Angel Kitty, a cute kitty christmas orpiment with a halo above her head.
