New ‘Toy Story 4’ Character Ruins the Gang’s Harmony in First Teaser Trailer

Disney-Pixar has shared the first look at “Toy Story 4” in the form of a teaser trailer. The video brings back fans’ favorite toy characters, including Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie and more, who are floating together in harmony, set to Judy Collins‘ cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “Both Sides Now”.

Joining them in a circle is a new character, Forky, who ruins everything as he declares, “I don’t belong here!” He goes on insisting, “I’m not a toy,” and screaming, while Woody instructs his friends, “Somebody get him before he pokes an eye out.”

According to the official synopsis of the movie, “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.”

Forky is voiced by Tony Hale and described as “an actual spork-turned-craft project who insists he isn’t a toy.”

Director Josh Cooley said in a statement, “Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story. And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”

He also dished on the new character, Forky, “The world of ‘Toy Story’ is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose. A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.”

Still featuring the voice of Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear, Annie Potts as Bo Peep, Joan Cusack as Jessie, Blake Clark as Slinky Dog, Wallace Shawn as Rex, John Ratzenberger as Hamm and many others, the movie is slated for a U.S. release on June 21, 2019.
