Toy Story 4 Movie Review: Nostalgic and Heartwarming #ToyStory4

Thank you to Disney for inviting me to a screening to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 opens in theaters everywhere on June 21, 2019, and Fandango announced that Toy Story 4 saw the highest first-day pre-sales for an animated film on Fandango!

A movie 24 years in the making and totally worth every moment. Toy Story 4 is everything I hoped it would be – and more. It’s nostalgic, heartwarming, and tells an emotionally sweet story.

New characters and old come together in the latest edition of Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story saga to share another exciting adventure. This one just happens to take place mostly on an RV and in an antique store. This story will pull on your heartstrings from the get-go. The first scene sets the stage and you will happily join the adventure from there.

The animation is phenomenal from the dust motes to the items in the antique shop. The attention to detail is incredible and makes you take notice of every little thing.

Toy Story 4 Movie Review
THREE-IN-ONE – He’s not a fork. He’s not a spoon. And most of all, Forky is not a toy! At least that’s what he thinks. Bonnie created him from an assortment of supplies Woody’s retrieved from the kindergarten trash can. So, it’s no wonder Forky feels strongly that he’s trash and not a toy. ©2019 Disney/Pixar.

As for the characters, you will fall head over heels in love with them – especially Forky. He is my absolute favorite new character because he’s a little lost and not sure of his place in this world. Really aren’t we all a little lost? If we’re made for one purpose what happens when another purpose comes up? Do we follow our hearts or stick with what we know? The way that the writers have written this character is spot-on and you can’t help but fall in love.

PICK ME! — Ducky and Bunny are carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall. ©2018 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

Ducky and Bunny

My kids laughed so hard at Ducky and Bunny. I thought they were hilarious from the first moment we see them at the carnival. They are brash, bold and street-wise but underneath they both have a heart of gold (or fluff).

The way Disney/Pixar weaves the veteran character stories with the newer characters stories is fun and entertaining. I love that there is a crossover between the two sets of characters and that they easily mesh together in the storyline. This is my favorite of the Toy Story films and I think these characters are filled with so much heart.

Also, bring the tissues. I CRIED!

About Toy Story 4

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. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”), and produced by Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”) and Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”), Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.
