Disney and Pixar has released the first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4 giving us the first look at the highly anticipated sequel.
The fourth installment to the greatest animated movie franchise of all time catches us up with Woody and the gang as the toys embark on an adventure that will show them just how big and exciting the world really is.
Toy Story 4 will also introduce us to a new character by the name of Forky a spork who’s been made into a toy, and faces an existential crisis.
Josh Cooley who co-wrote Inside Out makes his directorial debut with Toy Story 4 talked about the idea that lead them to revisiting all of our favorite toys one more time.
“Woody and the rest of the toys are back for an all-new adventure in “Toy Story 4,” welcoming new friends to Bonnie’s room, including a reluctant new toy called Forky. Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story, And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”
Some of you might be wondering why they added a spork by the name of “Forky”? Well Cooley talked about why a disposable spork has been introduced to Toy Story 4.
“The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose. A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.”
Toy Story 4 scheduled to hit theaters on June 21, 2019.
Voice Cast: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Jeff Pidgeon, Blake Clark
