Toy Story 4 faces an immediate uphill battle: how do you follow up Toy Story 3, one of the best sequels ever made and a film that felt like a perfect conclusion to the entire series? Pixar and director Josh Cooley have a lot to prove, but we know this much — we don’t like to bet against the people who made Up, Inside Out, and Finding Nemo.
/Film’s Peter Sciretta and Ben Pearson were in attendance at CinemaCon 2019 in Las Vegas when Disney presented new footage from Toy Story 4. Can it match the absurd highs of the previous film in the series? Let’s take a look.

Last week, the latest Toy Story 4 trailer gave us a more proper introduction to Forky (Tony Hale), a new makeshift toy that raises some horrifying questions about the universe of the Pixar Animation franchise. But it also paid close attention to the eye-opening adventure that Woody (Tom Hanks) goes on when he’s forced to keep Forky from running out on Bonnie. Now a new Toy Story 4 trailer has come along from across the pond, and while the set-up with Woody and Forky is mostly the same, there’s plenty of new footage of Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) trying to track down his old sheriff buddy.

When the first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4 arrived, we were introduced to Forky, the latest addition to the roster of characters in the franchise from Pixar Animation. However, unlike the rest of the toys that Bonnie inherited from Andy at the end of Toy Story 3, Forky wasn’t really a toy. He’s a spork that Bonnie made into a toy by adding some googly eyes, wonky pipe cleaner arms, eyebrows and a mouth made from clay, and feet made from a popsicle stick split in two.
At first, the introduction of Forky seemed like an interesting concept that allowed the Toy Story franchise to dive into thought-provoking areas regarding existentialism and identity. But when the new Toy Story 4 trailer actually showed Bonnie making Forky while at daycare, I realized that this introduces a horrifying new concept into the Toy Story franchise that could make this world as terrifying and perplexing as that of Cars.

A new Toy Story 4 trailer just arrived, finally keying us into the story that Woody, Buzz and the whole gang find themselves in when Bonnie takes them all on a family road trip. This adventure mostly belongs to Woody (Tom Hanks) as he tries to convince Bonnie’s new makeshift toy Forky (a spork with googly eyes, pipecleaner arms, popsicle stick feet and a clay mouth, voiced by Tony Hale) to accept his life as a toy.
After falling out of the moving RV, Woody and Forky try to find their way back to Bonnie, but there’s a bit of a detour. Woody spots his old girlfriend Bo Peep (Annie Potts) in the window of an antique shop, and she opens up his world to the possibility of having an existence where he doesn’t have to dedicate his life to being just a toy. That also means Woody is meeting a bunch of new toys out in the world beyond Bonnie’s house, and Pixar has announced the voice cast bringing them to life. Read More »

Toy Story 4 is coming to theaters this summer, whether you like it or not. The sequel feels like it has a bit of up an uphill battle to justify its existence after the ending of Toy Story 3 provided such a prefect conclusion. But since they have a new kid to play with in the form of the adorable Bonnie, I suppose they have a whole new world of adventures open to them.
As the trailers have shown, Toy Story 4 will introduce plenty of new characters to the toys that formerly belonged to Andy, including a spork with an existential crisis and a pair of hyped-up carnival stuffed animals. But now, more new characters have been revealed thanks to some upcoming Funko POP figures tied to Toy Story 4, and one of them confirms an Easter egg cameo appearance by a character spotted in Incredibles 2.
