First 'Toy Story 4' Full Trailer Arrives

We're just a few months away from this summer's release of Pixar's Toy Story 4, and even at this stage, there's much we still don't know. The first couple of teaser trailers have left us intrigued but still revealed very little.

Now, we finally have the first full trailer and it's becoming much clearer which direction the new film is headed. Josh Cooley's film picks up some time after the end of the third movie (and possibly the TV specials) with Woody, Buzz, Jessie and co living happily with new owner Bonnie.

This peaceful existence is interrupted by the arrival of Forky, the spork first seen in the debut teaser. The new preview confirms (as many have guessed) that Forky is a home-made toy made by their owner- and her new favourite.

The film's major plot is set in motion by Forky having an existential crisis ("why am I alive?") which seems to lead to him running away- with Woody following to try and bring him back. Along the way he unexpectedly runs into a face from him past- his old flame Bo Peep, now apparently living in some kind of antique shop (alongside some seriously creepy dolls and ventriloquist's dummies). The ensuing adventure will lead them eventually to the funfair (or carnival) we've seen in earlier footage.

Having shown so little in earlier teasers, there seems to be a lot here. Hopefully, the finished film still holds many surprises.

With the first three films considered such classics, this third sequel has an awful lot to live up to. However, with the trailers offering a mix of genuinely new ideas (the introduction of Forky is inspired) and the elements and characters we all fell in love with the first time, there's no reason to think it can't do just that.

Toy Story 4 Arrives in cinemas in the US and UK on June 21.

Woody 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. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.
