Sales of Toy Story merchandise could be set for another boost - it has been confirmed that the characters will make a second big screen outing this year.

'Small Fry' will focus on action figure Buzz, who gets left behind at a fast-food restaurant and must find his way home.

The short will show before Jim Henson's The Muppets, which opens in the US on November 23rd, and in the UK February 10th next year.

Earlier this year, Pixar mastermind John Lasseter hinted that the studio would look to make more Toy Story short films.

In June, the chief creative officer said: "We really believe in the short film. It just keeps new animation of our favourite characters going."

The news was revealed at Disney’s D23 expo – The Ultimate Disney Fan Event – held near Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
