After visiting Pixar Animation Studios recently, I've got Toy Story on the brain. Toy Story will forever hold a very special place in my heart. It's the movie that single handedly made me believe my toys came to life when I left the room. I’ll never forget waiting outside my bedroom door for my toys move and then, swiftly opening the door to catch them in action. Those sneaky toys always seemed to outsmart me. Toy Story made me feel so many things but mainly, it evoked my sense of wonder and imagination. I can only hope that Toy Story 4 will bring those same feelings to the newer generation.

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.
Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”).
