When I first heard that there would be a fourth Toy Story movie, I yawned and blew it off. We already saw the end of the story for Buzz, Woody, and everyone else when the trilogy concluded in 2010. Nine years later, we have another movie, and it seemed like a shameless money grab. Based on the latest trailer that finally reveals more details to the story, this movie is starting to look good.
In “Toy Story 4”, a new toy is introduced – Forky – who Bonnie made in school. Forky is not so into being a toy, and tries to escape, which leads Woody to hunt him down. Far away from home, the two end up discovering the location of lost toy Bo Peep, who is quite happy living away from kids with other childhood mementos that went missing. From there, Buzz leads the others to search for Woody and Forky, and who knows what hijinx will ensue. It looks like it will be a funny and heart-warming story that we come to expect from a “Toy Story” film, but don’t take my word for it.
Check out the new trailer below:
Here is the official synopsis from Disney:
Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.
Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.
We only have a few more months to go until the release of this movie, and after seeing this trailer, I am finally excited to see where this adventure leads them.
