It’s here! The full trailer for “Toy Story 4” has been released and gives audiences a much more in-depth look at what the latest Pixar sequel is about.
If you remember the ending to “Toy Story 3,” a grown-up Andy gifted all of his toys to a young girl named Bonnie. The new movie picks up soon after with Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the toys meeting a new toy named Forky. Unlike the existing prefabricated toys, Forky is a DIY toy that Bonnie made herself out of a spork and some art supplies.

After Forky decides to escape (because he wants to be a utensil, not a toy), Woody goes after him and a new adventure begins. Along the way, Woody reunites with Bo Peep, whose absence from the last film is explained. Bo has created a new, independent life for herself and encourages Woody to leave Bonnie and his old life behind and do the same. This gives Woody a moral dilemma to think about — does he join Bo or is his destiny to return to Bonnie and his friends?
Here’s a glimpse of a scene where Woody and Forky try to make their way home:
Although the trailer doesn’t hint at how the movie ends, Tom Hanks, who voices Woody, described the ending of the film as a “moment in history.”
Specifically, he told BBC: “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 him 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.’”
No matter how “Toy Story 4” ends, you better believe we’re going to have our tissues ready!
