The two-weekend event will include three "broadcast exclusive first looks" at this summer's highly-anticipated film "Toy Story 3" (in theaters on Friday, June 18). The first "broadcast exclusive first look" at the upcoming movie will debut during the network's presentation of "Toy Story," premiering Saturday, June 5th; the second "broadcast exclusive first look" will debut during the Sunday, June 6th premiere of "Toy Story 2"; then on Sunday, June 13th, viewers can tune in for a full day of "Toy Story" programming, including sneak peeks at some of the new toy characters being introduced in "Toy Story 3," as well as a third "broadcast exclusive first look" airing during the "Toy Story" telecast. The "Toy Story" weekend schedule is as follows:

Saturday, June 5

"Toy Story": They're toys, they talk -- at least when people aren't around -- and they're back� celebrating the return of the "Toy Story" franchise, this time in Disney Digital 3D(TM). "Toy Story," the film that started it all, takes moviegoers back to that fantastic fun-filled journey, viewed mostly through the eyes of two rival toys -- Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), the lanky, likable cowboy, and Buzz Lightyear (voice of Tim Allen), the fearless space ranger. The comically-mismatched duo eventually learn to put aside their differences when circumstances separate them from their owner, Andy, and they find themselves on a hilarious adventure-filled mission in which the only way they can survive is to form an uneasy alliance. Airs from 7:00-9:00 PM ET/PT.

Sunday, June 6

"Toy Story 2": Disney·Pixar's "Toy Story 2" picks up as Andy heads off to Cowboy Camp, leaving his toys to their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector named Al McWhiggin (voice of Wayne Knight), owner of Al's Toy Barn, kidnaps Woody (voice of Tom Hanks). At Al's apartment, Woody discovers that he is a highly valued collectible from a 1950s TV show entitled "Woody's Roundup," and he meets the other prized toys from that show -- Jessie the cowgirl (voice of Joan Cusack), Bullseye the horse and Stinky Pete the Prospector (voice of Kelsey Grammer). Back at the scene of the crime, Buzz Lightyear (voice of Tim Allen) and the gang from Andy's room - Mr. Potato Head (voice of Don Rickles), Slinky Dog (voice of Jim Varney), Rex (voice of Wallace Shawn) and Hamm (voice of John Ratzenberger) - spring into action to rescue their pal from winding up as a museum piece. The toys get into one predicament after another in their daring race to get Woody home before Andy returns. Airs from 9:00-1:00 PM ET/PT.

Sunday, June 13

"Pixar Short Films": Get ready for two fun-filled hours of Walt Disney Pictures Presents "Pixar Short Films" that will include the following 20 film shorts: "Presto," "Lifted," "Jack-Jack Attack," "BURN-E," "Unidentified Flying Mater," "Adventures of Andre and Wally B.," "Boundin," "For the Birds," "Geri's Game," "Knick Knack," "Luxo Jr.," "Mater and the Ghostlight," "Mike's New Car," "One Man Band," "Red's Dream," "Tin Toy," "Your Friend the Rat," "Rescue Squad Mater," "Mater the Greater" and "El-Materdor." (Animated) Airs from 3:30-5:30 PM ET/PT.

"Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins": Buzz Lightyear, the ultimate hero from the smash hit "Toy Story" movies, is back as you've never seen him before! In "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command," the world's bravest Space Ranger takes on the evil Emperor Zurg in an intergalactic struggle of epic proportions -- right in their own backyard, the Gamma Quadrant. Airs from 5:30-7:00 PM ET/PT.

"Toy Story" (7:00-9:00 PM ET/PT)

"Toy Story 2" (9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT)

The upcoming theatrical release "Toy Story 3" welcomes Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the whole gang back to the big screen as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in�daycare! These untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice, so it's all for one and one for all as plans for the great escape get underway. A few new faces -- some plastic, some plush -- join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie counterpart Ken (voice of Michael Keaton), a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants (voice of Timothy Dalton) and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear (voice of Ned Beatty). Directed by Lee Unkrich (co-director of "Toy Story 2" and "Finding Nemo"), produced by Pixar veteran Darla K. Anderson ("Cars," "Monsters, Inc."), and written by Academy Award(R)-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt ("Little Miss Sunshine"), "Toy Story 3" is a comical new adventure in Disney Digital 3D(TM) and IMAX(R) 3D.
