All aboard the toy train, as our favorite characters are back! Disney released the first teaser trailer for Pixar's 'Toy Story 4' on Monday, re-introducing us to our beloved toy friends like Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), and Jessie (Joan Cusack).
The teaser trailer also introduces a new toy, Forky, who is a reluctant part of the toy gang. With his “I don’t belong here,” he brings dramatic tension to the toy reunion.
The teaser takes us back to Bonni's room where we meet Forky (Tony Hale), who is "an actual spork-turned-craft project who insists he isn’t a toy.” However, every time he tries to escape, he ends up getting stuck in an unwanted adventure.
We thoroughly enjoyed the previous three films and expect no less from 'Toy Story 4'.
Director Josh Cooley like every one of us had thought that 'Toy Story 3' was the last film of the franchise, but then was attracted by new beginnings.
"Like most people, I assumed that Toy Story 3 was the end of the story,” he said in a statement. “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," he added.
Talking about the new addition to the toy cast, Cooley said, "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.”
The official synopsis of the film reads, "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.”
'Toy Story 4' is scheduled for theaterical release on June 21, 2019.
