The first Toy Story was all “You. Are. A. Toy!” But Toy Story 4 is like “Am I though?”
The first, full trailer for the highly anticipated sequel just dropped and of course it looks amazing. When we last saw Woody, Buzz and the gang, they had found a new home with Bonnie, the little girl who lived next door to their original owner, Andy. We thought the franchise was done. The torch had officially been passed. What more story was left for these toys? Well, it seems like the geniuses over at Disney/Pixar are taking these toys to infinity and beyond.
In the upcoming sequel, Bonnie has made a toy out of a spork and that toy becomes the most important to her. The spork, known as Forky, has an existential crisis and doesn’t know why he is alive. Same spork, same. As he runs away he tells Woody and the gang that he is “not a toy. [He] was made for soup, salad, maybe chili and then the trash.” Of course Woody needs to bring Forky back to Bonnie because he can’t bare to see her sad so he and Buzz go on a journey to find Forky and that’s when the plot thickens! Woody finds his old flame, Bo Peep, inside of an antiques shop and reconnects with her. But this Bo ain’t the same no mo. She is fierce! She turned her hoop skirt into a cape and is kicking toy booty! Bo Peep has found happiness living at an amusement park which makes Woody wonder if he could be happy with “the lost toy life.”
Will Woody go back to Bonnie? Will Bo go back to Woody? Will Forky ever be happy as a toy? Does true happiness even exist?! I didn’t think this animated film would raise such weighted questions!
The highly anticipated film hits theaters on June 21st and I am sure it will be a blockbuster hit! Take a look at the full trailer below!
