Hot on the heels of their recent Oscar win for Best Animated Feature, the Toy Story 3 cast is heading back to the silver screen this summer in the 3-D animated short Hawaiian Vacation.

Directed by Gary Rydstrom, Disney Pixar’s Hawaiian Vacation will screen exclusively with the upcoming film Cars 2, which hits theaters on June 24. The short will be presented in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D in select theaters.

Hawaiian Vacation features Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) and Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the rest of the toys as they create a Hawaiian vacation for Ken (voice of Michael Keaton) and Barbie (voice of Jodi Benson) from the confines of a Midwestern bedroom.

Aside from Sunday’s Oscar nod for Best Animated Feature, Randy Newman earned the award for Best Original Song for the film’s We Belong Together.
