Ever imagined what it would be like to watch your favourite sports team played by Pixar characters? Me neither. But ESPN+ and Disney+ think they've found a new niche. In perhaps the strangest sports-entertainment collaboration we've seen to date, they'll be recreating a live NFL match in Andy's room from Toy Story.

Toy Story Funday Football will replicate "every run, pass and score" from a real NFL game almost as it happens, all rendered in the Toy Story world. It's either going to be mindblowing or a complete car crash (see our roundup of AI art tutorials for more on AI tech).
