Trailer For “Toy Story 4” Brings Back Your Old Friends


Earlier in the week, a New Trailer dropped for Pixar’s hotly anticipated sequel Toy Story 4. Apologies for not getting to it sooner, but we’re here now. Personally, I’ve long been of two minds about this effort. On the one hand, Toy Story is my favorite animated franchise and some of the finest hours within the Pixar oeuvre. On the other hand, Toy Story 3 wrapped up the series brilliantly, with such a perfect ending it can be almost impossible to duplicate. Well, this Trailer is out and seeks to show why a new outing is necessary. You can see it at the end of the post, as you’d expect, so read on for more on Toy Story 4…

The film is the latest installment in the Toy Story franchise. Here, the adventures of our favorite toys continue on, though in a whole new way. Here is the plot synopsis that’s floating around on the web: “Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody’s slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they’re worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.” Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (voice of Tim Allen), and the rest of the toys are living a happy life with Bonnie. However, when they wind up on a road trip and find their long-lost cohort Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts), another adventure begins, one that includes a new friend in Forky (voice of Tony Hale). Josh Cooley directs a script penned by Stephany Folsom, based on the original story by the grouping of Pete Doctor, John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, and Lee Unkrich (Rashida Jones and Will McCormack originally wrote this screenplay). Randy Newman once again composes the score, while the supporting voices include the likes of Patricia Arquette, Jodie Benson, Blake Clark, Joan Cusack, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Estelle Harris, Christina Hendricks, Bonnie Hunt, Keegan-Michael Key, Laurie Metcalf, Jordan Peele, John Ratzenberger, Keanu Reeves, Kristen Schaal, Wallace Shawn, and more.

From the looks of this Trailer, Pixar has done it again. This film could be an absolute joy. Most fears about not stopping after the perfect third entry appears to have been allayed. If Toy Story 4 is as good as previous entries into the series have been, Oscar will come calling. Look for Disney to make a huge push for this one, obviously in Best Animated Feature, where it’s the early frontrunner, but campaigns in Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay (for Folsom), Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song could be in play as well. A lot will depend on how the movie turns out, but things look promising so far.

You can see this Trailer for Toy Story 4 next. We’re only about three months away from the movie hitting at the end of June, so expect Disney and Pixar to ramp up publicity for this one in short order. There’s more to be seen between now and then, but what has been revealed so far is very promising. Time will tell if the flick can pull off the impossible, but there’s cause for optimism here. For the moment, take a look at the New Trailer and sit tight for plenty more on the film in the weeks and months to come…

Here now is the New Trailer for Toy Story 4:



Stay tuned for more on Toy Story 4 between now and its June 21st release date!
