Giddy Up Partner, Pixar has just released a new teaser trailer for Toy Story 4, set to debut next summer. The new trailer can be seen below, which may come as a bit of a surprise for even the most hardcore Toy Story fans.
The new film takes us back to Bonnie’s with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the beloved gang after the emotionally overwhelming ending events of Toy Story 3. “Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story,” said director Josh Cooley. “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.”
Yet, things will be a little different this time around, as Woody and the gang encounter a new toy, Forky, who is of Bonnie’s own design. He persists, pulling away from the other toys, wanting to go back to the simple life of being a spork. Unfortunately for Forky, every time he tries to escape the world of toys, he gets thrown back into the mix for a new adventure.
“The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose,” said Cooley. “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.”
Comedian Tony Hale will voice Forky, who can’t wait to jump in and join the Toy Story legacy. “It’s a huge thrill to be part of the Toy Story family,” he said. “But it’s going to take a while for it to really sink in.”
The new trailer will debut with Ralph Breaks the Internet, which comes out on November 21st. The toys are back in town next June. Stay tuned for more!
