With the holidays in full swing, Kevin McKidd takes a break from his role of Dr. Owen Hunt on "Grey's Anatomy" to provide the voice of a dinosaur gladiator in a new Pixar animated special.
In "Toy Story That Time Forgot," airing Tuesday (Dec. 2), on ABC, McKidd voices Reptillus Maximus, one of a group of new toys for little Bonnie, deluded action figures that make Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of their fellow holdovers the centerpieces of their violent gladiator games.
McKidd, who had previously worked with Pixar on the 2012 animated theatrical feature "Brave," says his character, Reptillus, was inspired by one he played on the 2005-2007 HBO series "Rome."
Effortlessly picking up where “Toy Story of Terror” left off, Pixar has delivered a second splendid ABC holiday special plucked from one of its signature franchises, “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” again moving a peripheral character into the equivalent of a starring role. Funny, warm and not afraid to include gags clearly intended more for parents than their kids, it’s the kind of production that keeps the franchise fresh (and crassly, merchandise flying off shelves) while waiting for yet another sequel.

This Tuesday, Woody, Buzz, Rex, and the rest of the Toy Story gang return for a brand-new holiday TV special, Toy Story That Time Forgot - a crisp and clever adventure that actually syncs up better with the recent Jurassic World buzz than it does with the oncoming Christmas season.
With the holidays in full swing, Kevin McKidd takes a break from his role of Dr. Owen Hunt on “Grey’s Anatomy” to provide the voice of a dinosaur gladiator in a new Pixar animated special.
In “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” airing Tuesday, Dec. 2, on ABC, McKidd voices Reptillus Maximus, one of a group of new toys for little Bonnie, deluded action figures that make Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of their fellow holdovers the centerpieces of their violent gladiator games.
McKidd, who had previously worked with Pixar on the 2012 animated theatrical feature “Brave,” says his character, Reptillus, was inspired by one he played on the 2005-2007 HBO series “Rome.”

A new accent for ‘Toy Story’ holiday special
By Sarah Rodman
Globe Staff November 22, 2014
Kevin McKidd says he lives by an old actor’s maxim: “You only really know you did a good job when you get asked back again.”
So it was an easy yes when the “Grey’s Anatomy” star was asked to lend his voice to the new Pixar-Disney TV special “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” airing Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
The Scotsman had voiced the character of Lord MacGuffin in the 2012 Pixar big-screen blockbuster “Brave,” and when that film’s co-director, Steve Purcell, was chosen to helm the latest “Toy Story” TV adventure, he called on McKidd to play the new character Reptillus Maximus, a dinosaur soldier who is part of an elaborate, fictional game called “Battlesaurs.”

The toys have returned for ABC’s new holiday special Toy Story That Time Forgot, and EW has the exclusive first look at the new poster.
After a post-Christmas play date, the Toy Story gang finds themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. If the gang hopes to return to Bonnie’s room, they’ll have to rely on Trixie the triceratops (Kristen Schaal).
Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz alongside Kevin McKidd, Wallace Shawn, Timothy Dalton, Don Rickles and Joan Cusack.
Toy Story That Time Forgot will debut Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios cast member Paul Chadkin spotted and protographed the first known title artwork for Disney/Pixar’s Brave today in poster form at the park’s Animation Building. Note that the logo for the film (originally titled The Bear and the Bow) has been modified from the original photo for its presentation here and may or may not properly resent the true artwork. Pixar animator Chris Chua noted that Princess Merida (Reese Witherspoon) and her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) are prominently represented in the logo here as well (pay special attention to the detail in the lettering).
The Pixar original fairytale, set in a rugged and mythic Scotland, features the impetuous, tangle-haired Merida who would prefer to make her mark as a great archer despite being a daughter of royalty. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father’s kingdom and her mother’s life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right.
Brave is slated to be released in North America on June 15, 2012.
