The performance will feature the characters in several hilarious scenes, from Woody and Jessie dancing to their western version of the “Russian Dance” to Rex in his tutu continuously creating problems for the little green aliens, which was inspired by the mushroom scene in “Fantasia.”

I like the fact that Pixar is expanding their reach beyond full-length films with Toy Story of Terror and now Toy Story Nutcracker, because it’s fun to see these characters beyond the big screen. Now if only Pixar would continue this trend with their other beloved movie characters…
