This morning storytellers and film aficionados alike gathered around their TVs, cradled their smartphones, and hunched over their computer monitors awaiting the announcement of this year’s Oscar nominations. Despite some obvious snubs and a few shockers, the broadcast concluded with a solid list of nominations, including THREE for Disney/Pixar.

The studio snagged a nomination in the Best Animated Feature category for Toy Story 4, the Best Original Song category for Toy Story 4, and in the Best Animated Short category for Kitbull.

A lot of time and hard work goes into making any kind of animated content and we wanted to congratulate EVERYONE who was involved in Toy Story 4 and Kitbull. Great work!

Now… it’s time to begin the official award show countdown. We can’t wait for the Oscars, which airs on Sunday 9th of February!

Meet Your New Favorite Toy Story 4 Character: Duke Caboom

Just like Trixie, we have a lot of questions about Pixar’s new teaser trailer introducing the Canadian daredevil Duke Caboom. Watch below and prepare to be blown away with awesomeness:

First of all, how many poses can Duke Caboom really do? Is he Canada’s only daredevil? How does he style his goatee so perfectly? And why is he so freakin’ cool?

In the teaser, we watch a vintage style advert showcase Duke riding his motorcycle, doing dangerous jumps through hoops, and somehow managing to pose on his ride as he soars through the sky. The trailer then cuts to a child playing with a Duke Caboom toy as she attempts to replicate his famous jumps through a hoop set. We quickly find out, a la typical Toy Story fashion, that these toys can’t do what they’re advertised for. Just like in the original Toy Story, Buzz discovers he can’t really fly but Duke Caboom already seems to know that everything’s all a facade, as he utters the line: “It’s a commercial, it’s not real! I can’t jump that far!” It will definitely be interesting to see how Duke interacts with Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the gang and what role he has in this new adventure. Duke Caboom is also voiced by real life action star Keanu Reeves, so we’re all definitely in for a massive treat.

In addition to the teaser, Pixar also released some stunning new character posters that show Buzz, Woody, and Bo Peep giving their best action hero pose as we near even closer to Toy Story 4‘s June 21st release. It seems like everyone is inspired by Duke…

Can you say, “Caboom?!”
