It has been an incredible journey for the Toy Story gang. Though Toy Story 3 is hailed as one of the best of the franchise, many questioned the need to have another sequel about Woody and Buzz. Well, everything seen and heard in Toy Story 4 validates that need.
An emotionally and visually beautiful epilogue to Pixar’s flagship films, Toy Story 4 takes some bold risks by inserting heavy themes and thrusts beloved characters into unfamiliar territory. By doing so, we get to see these treasured characters in a whole new light and are given even more reasons to continue loving them. Most importantly, the film continues to have all the heart and the humor that the franchise is known for. Check out my full review here below.
The entire premise of Toy Story 4 asks the question, what makes a toy a toy? It’s a deep and existential question that has never been explored in any of the previous Toy Story films. This comes about when Bonnie brings home Forky (Tony Hale), a googly-eyed spork with pipe-cleaners for arms and a broken popsicle stick for legs. It just sets the stage for a much bigger adventure when Bonnie takes all of her toys on a family road trip, and Woody (Tom Hanks), being the honorable sheriff that he is, promises to bring back Forky when he runs away.
Pixar has now released the final trailer for Toy Story 4, and you can check it out below.
Toy Story 4 will bring Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack), and the rest of the toys back to town this year. Disney”¢Pixar’s longest-running franchise will see our favorite toys in an all-new adventure of discovery and self-discovery. Check out the latest look at the highly anticipated sequel below, which aired during Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Before Forky was introduced as the heart of the Toy Story 4 plot, it was rumored that the film was going to be a romantic film about Woody being reunited with his long lost love Bo Peep, a porcelain figure based on the nursery rhyme character Little Bo-Peep.
She was noticeably absent in Toy Story 3, which led many to believe that she was lost or broken. However, she will be back in Toy Story 4, and with a brand new look. Check out her teaser intro video below.
Toy Story 4 isn’t due out in theaters until next year, but we’ve already got two very interesting teasers featuring three new toys. In one trailer, Forky (Tony Hale) is seen going through somewhat of an existential crisis. In another trailer, Bunny (Jordan Peele) and Ducky (Keegan-Michael Key) had some trouble reciting Buzz Lightyear’s famous catchphrase: “To Infinity And Beyond.” But it looks like the toy chest is going to need some more room. That’s because Keanu Reeves will reportedly voice a new character in the film. More on the report, below.
