Toy Story 4 Trailer: The Gang Gets Back Together
"I'm not a toy!"
While many fans had presumed that 2010's Toy Story 3 was the end of Pixar's hugely popular, groundbreaking animated film series, the fourth movie is due for release next year. The first teaser for Toy Story 4 has now been released. [Update: Following up on this, Pixar has now released another new Toy Story 4 teaser that effectively serves as a trailer reaction video to this promo, and it's quite funny.]
Unsurprisingly, it doesn't give much away. It doesn't seem to have any footage from the movie, but instead shows all the main toys dancing blissfully through the air to the lilting sounds of Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now.' As it reaches the end of the line, a wooden fork toy--known as Forky--yells "I don't belong here!" And then things get weird. Check it out above.
Toy Story 4 sees all the main cast return, including Tom Hanks (as Woody), Tim Allen (Buzz), Annie Potts (Bo Peep), Joan Cusack (Jessie), Blake Clark (Slinky Dog), Wallace Shawn (Rex), and John Ratzenberger (Hamm), plus Arrested Development's Tony Hale as Forky. It hits theaters on June 21, 2019.
The movie is directed by Josh Cooley, who previously co-wrote Inside Out for Pixar, and Jonas Rivera. It was originally announced back in 2014 with a 2017 release date, but delays caused the film to switch release slots with The Incredibles 2. In addition, former Disney Animation head John Lasseter was set to direct, but sexual harassment allegations against him resulted in him stepping away and ultimately leaving the company.
In a recent interview, Hanks spoke about what fans can expect from the movie. "Toy Story 4 is going to have an impactful ending," he revealed. "The way you record Toy Story; you're in a room with the team that has created it. When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually you're facing them so you can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn't want to see them and I wanted to pretend they couldn't see me. When I realized what they were going for, I realized, 'Oh, this is a moment in history.'"
