A new teaser trailer for the fourth installment of Toy Story is here!
The first teaser for Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4 has arrived and fans finally get introduced to the gang’s newest plaything, Forky, voiced by comedian Tony Hale (Veep).
The short video features the old gang including Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Rex, Slinky Dog, Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head floating through the air, when mid-flight the frightened Forky screams, “I don’t belong here!” “I’m not a toy!” the makeshift spork screams toward the end. “Hey! Hey!” Woody tells the group. “Somebody get him before he pokes an eye out.”
The studio’s official logline for the upcoming film says, “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.”
Director Josh Cooley said, “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.”
“The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose,” adds 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.” To which adds Hale, “A utensil’s existential crisis? I’m in!”
Toy Story 4 hits theaters June 21, 2019. Check out the trailer below!
