Pixar has just released the final promo poster and a new TV spot for their upcoming June 21 Toy Story 4 release. No family vacation is complete without a day at the carnival! Meek ‘yays!’ all around! And, on this special trip, Bo Peep returns (voiced by Annie Potts), to Woody’s utter surprise, Buzz Lightyear gets smacked around by the hilarious stuffed animal duo, Ducky and Bunny (voiced by the comedic team of Keegan-Michael Key & Jordan Peele recreating their brilliant improvised “Valet” sketch vibe from their TV show), and… there’s a live cat. Watch the new spot below.
Woody (voiced by 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 (voiced by 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. 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.
Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack return as the voices of Woody, Buzz and Jessie. The voice cast also includes Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Jeff Pidgeon and Blake Clark. The film is being directed by Josh Cooley (Riley’s First Date?) and produced by Jonas Rivera (Inside Out, Up) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer Inside Out).
