Pixar has released a second trailer for Toy Story 4. This one tugs slightly less at the heart strings than the first one.
The first trailer definitely teased the emotional angle of the film, while this one teases the fun! I’m down for a road trip with all these toys, especially if it means seeing Bo Peep return!
Toy Story 3 did a nice job of wrapping up the story of a kid letting go of his toys and moving on, and Toy Story 4 looks to flip that on its head by examining what its like for a toy to let go of your kid and find yourself. It should make for some interesting debate.
Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) 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. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.
Toy Story 4 road trips into theaters June 21, 2019.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all, or should Pixar have left the franchise alone after Toy Story 3?
