Toy Story 4 is a 2019 American computer-animated comedy film by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Directed by Josh Cooley, it is the fourth installments in Pixar's Toy Story series and the sequel to the 2010 film, Toy Story 3. The film features most of the cast reprising their roles from the previous installments, including Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, and Joan Cusack, while Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves, and Ally Maki voice new characters introduced in this film.

The film continues from Toy Story 3, where Woody, Buzz Lightyear and their friends have found themselves a new kid named Bonnie (voiced by Madeleine McGraw, replacing Emily Hahn). When Bonnie makes a new toy named Forky out of trash, she takes him and the rest of her toys on a road trip, in which Woody and Buzz ended up reuniting with an old friend, Bo Peep.

The film premiered in Los Angeles on June 11, 2019, and was released in the United States on June 21, 2019. It grossed $1.073 billion worldwide, overtaking its predecessor, Toy Story 3, as the highest-grossing film in the franchise, and received critical acclaim, like previous installments. A sequel is in development.

Premise[]

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.

Production[]

Toy Story 4 was announced November 2014. The film is described as a "new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the Toy Story gang." According to the Los Angeles Times, Lasseter has stated the film is a love story, and picks up where Toy Story 3 left off. “We love these characters so much; they are like family to us. We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.” The Los Angeles Times states Lasseter and Stanton have worked on writing a treatment during the last two years. As of March 2015 Pixar president, Jim Morris, is currently planning not to make Toy Story 4 a continuation of Toy Story 3 but a stand-alone sequel. However they might change their minds and make it a continuation. In the same month, it was announced that Josh Cooley will co-direct. Tom Hanks confirmed that he is working on Toy Story 4.
