Sporks fly as new trailer for ‘Toy Story 4’ hits the internet
Andy may have outgrown Woody, Buzz Lightyear and his other beloved childhood toys, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more Toy Stories to be told.
On Tuesday, Disney-Pixar released a trailer with the first look at footage from “Toy Story 4,” and it quickly became the No. 1 trending video on YouTube.
The 2-minute, 27-second spot starts with Bonnie, the shy girl Andy gave his toys to at the end of “Toy Story 3,” making a new friend.
As Woody explains to the other toys, “She literally made a new friend.”
That companion is Forky — a plastic spork with pipe cleaner arms, googly eyes and popsicle stick feet.
Forky looks kind of wonky, but Bonnie adores her arts and crafts class creation.
However, the transformation from all-purpose utensil to plaything doesn’t sit well with the former spork.
“I am not a toy. I was made for soup, salad — maybe chili — and then the trash,” Forky says before leaping for freedom out of a moving RV.
Woody, always the heroic cowboy, follows in an attempt to save Bonnie’s concoction, and the adventure is on.
We got our first look at Forky, voiced by Tony Hale of “Arrested Development” and “Veep,” in a teaser trailer released last November.
As for the rest of the cast, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen return for their iconic roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear, as do most of the actors from the previous films.
The fourth installment in the series spawned by Pixar’s very first movie hits theaters June 21.
The original “Toy Story” introduced the world to the animation studio’s wizardry in 1995. The first sequel, Pixar’s third release, came out in 1999.
Eleven years elapsed before “Toy Story 3” hit theaters in 2010, and nine years later we’re getting the fourth chapter.
“Toy Story 4” is the first full-length directing credit for Josh Cooley, who co-wrote the screenplay for Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out.”
