But the existential crises are just beginning, as Bonnie’s family sets off on a road trip vacation that brings Woody face-to-face with a familiar old friend.

One thing is clear: Toy Story 4 is going to have a lot more existential dread than the last three films. That’s thanks to Forky, the new character that begs the question: just what is it that makes a toy a toy? And we’re talking the secretly sentient type of toy here, too. Is every single thing a kid plays with a toy – and if so, does that mean anything a child plays with will come to life? The implications are terrifying. In a new Toy Story 4 TV spot, we get to see the origins of Forky, and they’re about as spooky as you might expect.

Sid. Stinky Pete. Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear. Every Toy Story movie needs a villain, and Gabby Gabby is the latest in a line of great baddies. As with her predecessors, the Toy Story 4 villain is a complex character whose motivations are somewhat understandable – even if the way she acts on them is terrible. Voiced by Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks, Gabby Gabby is a vintage baby doll who lives in a huge antiques mall and relies on ventriloquist dummies to do her bidding. Not only is she one of the most exciting new toys, but she just might become the most interesting villain in the series.
During a recent visit to the Pixar campus, we had the opportunity to watch a scene featuring Gabby Gabby and learn all about this intriguing new character.

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.

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.
