Disney and Pixar today unleash a teaser trailer for next summer’s Toy Story 4! And it looks like our beloved toy gang must make way for a new character in the first Toy Story movie since 2010’s third installment. Below, watch Woody, Buzz Lightyear and friends’ idyllic summer scene get squashed by a somewhat alarming new pal named Forky.
According to a new synopsis of the film noted by Screen Rant, a “road trip adventure” takes place in Part 4. And it’s all instigated by the addition of Forky, an anthropomorphized non-toy plaything thrown in by Bonnie! (And voiced by none other than Arrested Development and Veep‘s Tony Hale.)
“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.”
The anticipated Toy Story 4 was first announced back in 2015. But, along with a director switch since its initial unveiling, the previously leaked plotline has changed completely in the time moviegoers have been waiting for new adventures from the cartoon cast voiced by Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and the late Don Rickles, who played Mr. Potato Head.
Josh Cooley, a co-writer on Inside Out, is directing the new picture from a script by Thor: Ragnarok‘s uncredited shaper Stephany Folsom. But the film was first to be helmed by John Lasseter, written by Will McCormak and Rashida Jones. And with a since-abandoned story following Woody and Buzz as they venture to find a lost Bo Beep.
