Cool. I ignored the films when they first came out. Years later, I had a kid and we watched them over and over. I was surprised that they appeal to both adults and kids.
That's been the PIXAR formula since day 1.
Even though I have a still sealed DVD of it, I've yet to watch "Toy Story 3", as everyone said it was too sad. Why do I fear a Trump like character in "4"?
Bittersweet would be a better descriptor.
It's more bittersweet than sad, and there are plenty of laughs and happy times along the way. You should definitely watch it.
I thought the trilogy was wrapped up perfectly and rolled my eyes a bit at them doing another, but if they have a good story worth telling #4 could be another great entry in the series. And I do have faith in Pixar when it comes to this property. They seem to know it's special.
Great news. I loved Toy Story 3 and it seems like that was a generation ago.
How will it do? I would say $750 million is the floor, $1.5B if the reviews/word of mouth is excellent.
Toy Story (1995): $373.5 million worldwide
Toy Story 2 (1999): $497.4 w/w
Toy Story 3 (2010): $1.067 Billion w/w
Toy Story 4: (2019): ??
I was shocked at the seriousness of the TS3 trash incinerator sequence but thought it was brilliantly done. Truly, that whole sequence should be featured in courses of film-making. Pure mastery, IMHO.
Can't wait to see this!
That scene had more to say about being human than almost any other film I've seen.
And "Mr. Tortilla Head" with the most brilliant piece of animation I've ever seen in a lifetime of watching it.
Sadly we lost both Don Rickles (Mr. Potato Head) and Jim Varney (Slinky Dog.)
I didn't watch any of these films (or ones like them) until the past few years with the arrival of my daughter. But yeah... the end of 3 can really bring me down. Its just the inevitability of leaving things behind as we get older. Can be applied to toys, but also to people in general. Its a part of life but still a colossal bummer. I want my mommy.
1 is brilliant. The script is fantastic. The "I'm from Mattel" line is genius
2 was pointless
3 was bittersweet
4 is probably too far
Pixar will probably lose their way without Lasseter at the helm.
The opening scene in UP turns me into a pile of goo every time.
Toy Story is always a good thing
Me as well. I was watching it in the theater with my wife of 33 years, each of us imagining life without the other, both of us emotionally wrecked.
Meet Ducky (voice of Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (voice of Jordan Peele) in this new teaser trailer for Toy Story 4. See the film in theatres June 21, 2019.
Woody’s journey in “Toy Story 4” includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.
“Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who voice Ducky and Bunny, are two of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever seen,” said director Josh Cooley. “Of course, they are effortlessly funny, which would be enough. But they are incredible actors that understand story. Their improvs weren’t just for comedy sake, they were story motivated which elevated Ducky and Bunny and the film to a level I never could have expected.
” ABOUT “TOY STORY 4”: 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”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.
Jeez...I sure hope the gang doesn't get separated and they have to venture out into the REAL WORLD to save one of their own!
...no, a carnival. That's about as unreal as our world gets.
yea, that warm and fuzzy feeling...we love our toys.
I found Toy Story 3 to be awful. Cloying, uninspired and laboured. 1 and 2 are great fun.
2 was pointless? Lot's of fans will disagree with that. I like 2 better than the first one. It's funnier. Love Kelsey Grammer as Stinky Pete.
Originally when I heard they were making a 4th one and what people were saying about it being emotional I was expecting it to take place when Andy was older and the toys were going to say goodbye to him before he passed. Now I fully expect one of the toys to die...where are the tissues?!
For those who have Freeform, there will be a Toy Story marathon coming up on Saturday.
