Talk about a purr-fect way to kick off the holiday season. The upcoming holiday special Toy Story That Time Forgot features all the usual Toy Story characters we've come to know and love (Woody, Buzz, Mr. Pricklepants, etc.), but this season's shiny new Pixar short will also introduce a supercute new kitty character — and yes, we're already smitten. Although she's not really a kitty, and she's more angelic than your regular Toy Story character. Let's explain.
The new character is named Angel Kitty and she's actually a Christmas ornament that helps carry the spirit of the holidays through the characters' adventures in Battleopolis. She's pink, she's big-eyed, she has golden angel wings, and she may just give Hello Kitty a run for her money in the cuteness department. But based on the looks on Woody and Buzz's faces in this exclusive key art, let's hope Angel Kitty's a guardian angel, because those boys look terrified!
Newcomer Emma Hudak provides the voice for Angel Kitty, along with a familiar cast that includes Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz, Kristen Schaal as Trixie, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Timothy Dalton as Mr. Pricklepants, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head, and Joan Cusack as Jessie.
But just in case you think Angel Kitty is stealing all the veteran characters' thunder, she isn't the only new Toy Story character to appear in this follow-up to last year's Toy Story of Terror. Grey's Anatomy star Kevin McKidd will voice new character, Reptillus Maximus, who's the leader of the action figure Battlesaurs.
Toy Story That Time Forgot airs Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
