You've got a friend in me
Woody and the gang are back on the big screen with a new kid to take care of and her name is Bonnie. After a very brief recap of the last three movies, the action kicks off when Bonnie's routine of constantly playing with her new and old toys is suddenly interrupted by huge news. She's going to kindergarten and she can't take any of her toys with her.
In an attempt to make a new friend, Bonnie creates a toy out of art supplies Woody secretly gives her (yup! Woody found a way to be there because he was worried about her). In comes Forky, Bonnie's new favourite toy who thinks he's actually trash, not a toy. Why? Well, the supplies Woody gives Bonnie were in fact, from the trash can. This gives Woody a new mission as he takes it upon himself to help Forky see that he really is a toy. It's a difficult job which only gets harder when Forky goes missing on a family road trip. Now it's up to Woody and his friends to find a way to bring Forky home.
To infinity and beyond
On the surface, the Toy Story movies are about the hidden lives of our toys but underneath that, they show us what being human means. Through the first three movies, we fell in love with Andy's toy family. We enjoyed watching their friendships develop and their loyalty to each other and Andy grow. Remember when Buzz first came into the picture? And how he became best buds with Woody? They taught us how to make new friends and be there for each other. And now, Pixar is going a step further with Toy Story 4.
Through Woody and Forky's journey, we learn how change can be hard to accept. Once upon a time, Woody was the favourite toy. Then came Forky who stole Bonnie's heart and made Woody feel pushed to the side. Watching Woody figure out his place in his friend's lives is a feeling most people can relate to and a journey we can all learn from.
YES HE CANADA!
One of our favourite new toys in Toy Story 4 is Duke Caboom. Duke's red maple leaf outfit and motorcycle make it hard to mistake which country he's from. He's a 1970's inspired stuntman full of Canadian pride and his character is hilarious to watch.
So will this be the last Toy Story movie? Only time will tell. For now, you can find out more about Toy Story 4 by watching the trailer below.
