Disney Plus and ESPN Plus will offer a fully-animated alternate presentation of the Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars NFL game that’s due to take place next month.

The Falcons vs Jaguars game is scheduled for October 1st and will take place at Wembley Stadium in London. If you’re not planning to attend the game in person, and don’t really want to watch the traditional feed on ESPN Plus, you will have the option of checking out an alternate feed that’s straight out of the Toy Story universe.

The Toy Story Funday Football version will see the Falcons vs Jaguars game recreated simultaneously in Andy’s room, in what is being billed as a “first-of-its-kind NFL game presentation.”

Each Falcon and Jaguar player will have their own animated representation on a traditional looking field, with state-of-the-art tracking technology making sure that viewers see every football-related action as it happens.

Other aspects of the game will also be animated, including the announcers, graphics, scoreboard, penalty announcements, and celebrations.

Further adding to the Toy Story feel, viewers will also see Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and other characters throughout, and can also watch along as Duke Caboom attempts a motorcycle jump during the Halftime show.

In addition to streaming the game on both Disney Plus and ESPN Plus, those with an active NFL Plus subscription will also be able to watch the entire fully-animated version on a mobile device.

For those unable to watch the game live on October 1, at 9:30 a.m. ET, the Toy Story Funday Football version will also be available to stream as a replay for a limited time on both Disney Plus and ESPN Plus.
