Release Date: June 21, 2019

Genre: Animation, Kids & Family

Cast: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan- Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Joan Cusack

Summary (from Rotten Tomatoes):

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.

Movie Review: 

When I saw Toy Story 3, I thought like many others, that it would have ended the popular franchise. As June 21 got closer, I was excited to watch this movie. The Toy Story franchise is one of my favorites from Pixar; The memorable characters, the stories, what’s not to love. Toy Story 4 had everyone’s favorite characters back: Woody, Buzz, Jessie, The Potato Heads, Slinky Dog, the Aliens, Hamm, Rex – “The Good Old Gang”. We also got introduced to some new characters like we always do; Not to reveal the plot, but if you’ve seen Toy Story 3, then you know how the Toys ended up with Bonnie, after Andy went off to college. In this film Woody goes on an adventure with Bonnie’s new toy, who thinks he’s not a toy lol, so Woody goes after him to bring him back, which he is doing to make sure Bonnie is happy. The animation in this movie is amazing, the details, the vivid colors; its like the animation gets better with each movie. Now let’s move on to the voice actors; The dynamic duo of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, along with a slew of other actors, who brings these amazing characters to life, you gotta love these actors and characters. A few new characters we get to meet are: Duke Caboom, Ducky and Bunny, Officer Dimple McGiggles, and Forky (who are voiced respectively by: Keanu Reeves, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Ally Maki, and Tony Hale). Without spoiling the movie, there are some surprises in the film, especially the ending ! (wow ! ) I loved Toy Story 4 so much, I would go see it again. This movie is fun, surprising, heartwarming, and has that Pixar humor that we love. I laughed, smiled, and teared up. This movie is definitely my favorite of the sequels and I recommend Toy Story fans and Disney Pixar lovers to see this movie; If you’ve seen Toy Story 4, what did you think ?
