Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation clip

Disney/Pixar unleashed a 30-second clip from Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation this morning. It can be viewed in HD embedded above via YouTube or on Apple Movie Trailers.

Speaking to EW, director Gary Rydstrom says that Pixar got back "everybody" back for the short—that is, all the main cast members of Toy Story 3. And he sums up the film's plot, which was leaked last month:
"Ken wants to take Barbie on a perfect vacation to Hawaii by stowing away in Bonnie’s backpack, but they get left behind in the middle of winter while she goes off without them... All the toys see how devastated Ken is."
That 'motivates' the toys to recreate Hawaii right in Bonnie's room.

Rydstrom also shares his favourite moment from the short, which I suspect will be my favourite moment as well: Chuckles sings!

Hawaiian Vacation will be in theatres with Cars 2 on June 24.

Lol classic Ken. He couldn't even grab his sunglasses! Can't wait to see the whole short.

I'm sorry, but can't the series just die? You know, end with a bang [Toy Story 3]? I really hate this whole short film series idea.

No it cannot die, Jeff! The whole idea is to keep it alive as long as possible. We're going to use it as the way to communicate with/get attention from aliens in 100 years you never know.

I love Kens animation, I don't know who's lead on Ken but he/she did a GREAT job.

(haha, I love the zipper pull on Bonnie's backpack.)
I was skeptical (still am) about future TS shorts, but eh, Ken and Barbie in this clip are just too entertaining for me to care. X)
