Everybody’s favorite toy squad is back. Disney/Pixar just dropped the first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4.
The footage released Monday also featured Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Rex the Dinosaur, Hamm the Piggy Bank, and Slinky the Dog as the characters held hands as Judy Collins’ cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” plays. There’s no dialogue, that is, until a slightly bizarre new character, an anthropomorphic spork named Forky, enters the scene.
Voiced by Tony Hale, Forky yells, “I don’t belong here!” and tries to leave, which causes the other characters to topple over each other. The new movie sees Woody’s owner Bonnie adding Forky, a reluctant new toy, who is actually a spork-turned-craft-project to her room.
The teaser was also accompanied by an official synopsis, reading: “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.”
Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and Joan Cusack all return as the voices of Woody, Buzz, and Jessie, while Tony Hale voices Forky. The film is directed by Josh Cooley, with Jonas Rivera and Mark Nielsen producing.
Toy Story 4 opens on June 19, 2019, 24 years after the original Toy Story.
