There's not long left to wait until the long-awaited, Toy Story 4 hits our cinema screens here in the UK. We're sure that you already have 101 reasons to be excited for the arrival of Toy Story 4, but, we thought we'd put that extra spring in your step and give you a couple more reasons that you should be dancing with excitement on the way to the Cinema on 21st June!
What's The Story?
Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody's slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they're worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.
Some Facts You May Not Know
1. In terms of timeline, only a couple of months have passed since Toy Story 3 (which came out nine years ago!).
2. The gang pretty much looks the same EXCEPT for additional subsurface scratches that were added to show the wear and tear of being a toy. Those details are there to remind you that the characters are plastic toys that have lived a full life. For example, Woody now has pilling on his shirt. And if you look closely, you can see the red thread that was used to re-stitch his arm in Toy Story 2!
3. Speaking of attention to detail, you'll notice throughout the movie that Pixar have included some familiar faces and items from their previous blockbuster hits. For example, in one of the scenes, you'll notice a painting of the dogs from 'Up' playing a game of poker.
4. Although Don Rickles died in 2017, his voice will be featured in the film as his iconic character, Mr Potato Head — he had previously signed on for the film and his family asked if Toy Story 4 could find a way to use his voice. To do so, the team searched through everything he’s recorded during the past 24 years to find clips they could use in the film.
We Have Toy Story Pyjamas
Another reason to get excited is to dress the kids up in their favourite pyjamas and of course, they've got to be Toy Story themed, right?
