Disney has revealed the first amazing teaser trailer for Pixar’s Toy Story 4. As it introduces us to many of our favorite characters from the franchise, it also introduces a new character named Forky, who is a toy that is not like the others and quite special.
This little teaser trailer got me excited for this next character of the Toy Story story and this new character Forky is working to add a whole strange dynamic to the group. Check out the synopsis below:
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 was directed by Josh Cooley (Riley’s First Date?) and when talking about the film, he 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.”
He goes on to talk about the new character Forky, explaining:
“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.”
That sure sounds like he’s going to make a pleasant, interesting, and unique character. Comedian Tony Hale gives the voice of Forky and when discussing casting him in the role, Cooley said:
“When we thought up this character, Tony was the first actor that came to mind and I’m thrilled he accepted. Tony’s performance as Forky is a comedy salad of confidence, confusion, and empathy… served by hilarious spork.”
Toy Story 4 also stars Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Annie Potts, Patricia Arquette, and Joan Cusack.
Toy Story 4 will be released in theaters on June 21, 2019.
