Disney Pixar has just released the first full-length trailer for Toy Story 4 and we start by seeing Woody’s introduction of new character Forky to the rest of the gang.
It’s been eight years since the last instalment of the Toy Story franchise, and we left our favourite toys after yet another great adventure. Now in college, Andy had given Woody, Buzz and the rest of his toys to a little girl called Bonnie.

Toy Story 4: What We Know
So where are the toys now? Busy welcoming toys to Bonnie’s room, including a new character named Forky.
Forky (voiced by comedian Tony Hale) is a plastic spork-turned-craft-project with pipe cleaner arms who is pretty sure he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip!
According to Disney, 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. So when Bonnie’s beloved new Forky, 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.
After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road contradict her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realise they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.

In addition to Forky and the return of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack and all our Toy Story favourites, we also see the introduction of new characters voiced by Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Ally Maki.
New character Gabby Gabby (voiced by Hendricks) is an adorable, talking pull-string doll from the 1950s. But unfortunately for her, a manufacturing defect in her pull-string voice box has left her sounding anything but adorable. She has spent more than 60 years forgotten in the depths of a jam-packed antique store—her only companions are a band of voiceless ventriloquist dummies. Gabby Gabby knows someone will want her if only she can find a working voice box to repair hers.
Meanwhile, Reeves lends his voice to Duke Caboom, a 1970s toy based on Canada’s greatest stuntman. Riding his powerful Caboom stunt-cycle, Duke is always prepared to show off his stunt poses with confidence and swagger. However, Woody learns quickly that Duke has an Achilles heel: He has never been able to do the awesome stunts advertised in his own toy commercial. For years, Duke has been sitting in an antique store, constantly reliving the failures of his tragic past.
Also introduced in the new trailer, Benson is a classic, antique ventriloquist dummy, and Gabby Gabby’s right hand. He leads a small group of ventriloquist dummies that serve as Gabby’s henchmen and patrol the antique store.
If the trailer is anything to go by, Toy Story 4 is probably going to make us cry – not least because it’s also supposed to be the last of the Toy Story movies.
Toy Story 4 comes to cinemas on June 21st 2019, but you can take a peek at what to expect here:
