The game will feature Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and other fan-favorite Toy Story characters watching from the sidelines! The whole family will also be able to check out the halftime show, which will feature Duke Caboom attempting to do a trick on his motorcycle. Even if kids don’t know how to play football, the broadcast will feature how-to videos and trivia to teach them all the secrets behind the game.
