‘The Muppets’ 2011: new ‘Toy Story’ short to play with movie

Coming soon!

If you were not already excited enough about the new “Muppets” movie set to hit theaters this November, you now have yet another reason to pick up a ticket to see this in theaters — the promise of a new “Toy Story” short.

It is now being reported that a new short entitled “Small Fry” is set to be the opening act, but there is no indication yet as to which popular characters from the Pixar universe will appear. This is the second “Toy Story” short to appear before a film this summer, as one featuring Barbie and Ken debuted before “Cars 2” this summer.

Buzz is growing around “The Muppets” thanks not only to the return of some of these popular characters to the big screen, but also the enthusiasm of its star (and writer) Jason Segel, who has been a longtime fan of the franchise ever since he was a child.

Does the promise of this short somehow make you even more excited to check out this project?
