Well here's a rare treat from the usually money hungry Disney/Pixar. While we would have fully expected the short "Partysaurus Rex" -- which unspooled in front of screenings for "Finding Nemo 3D" -- to only be available in the eventual home video release for the converted movie, the studio has gone ahead and thrown it online. Nice.

Partysaurus Rex

Well here's a rare treat from the usually money hungry Disney/Pixar. While we would have fully expected the short "Partysaurus Rex" -- which unspooled in front of screenings for "Finding Nemo 3D" -- to only be available in the eventual home video release for the converted movie, the studio has gone ahead and thrown it online. Nice.

The seven-minute movie finds Wallace Shawn reprising his role as Rex, and this time we find the toy dinosaur in the tub with Bonnie, along with a bunch of new friends, and a party comes to life. Simple and straightforward. Pixar heads will notice a few nods to other movies under the animation banner, and the entire affair is directed by Mark Walsh and bounces to a score by electronic artist BT.

The short continues Pixar's branding of "Toy Story" long past the "finale" of "Toy Story 3," with the characters also appearing in the shorts "Hawaiian Vacation" and "Small Fry" and being groomed for their first holiday special, with a Halloween TV show next year. But if the ideas continue to be fresh and inventive, we won't mind. Watch below. [Collider]
