Old Friends And New Faces – New Toy Story 4 TV Spot And Poster

Poster, Toy Story 4

Posted by Joanna • April 18, 2019

A new Toy Story 4 TV spot has given us a glimpse of some brand new footage, all centred around Bo Peep, the Pixar heroine we’re looking forward to reacquainting ourselves with this summer. Take a look at the TV spot below:

From what we’ve seen of Toy Story 4 already, it’s clear that the movie is going to look beautiful. This new TV spot has totally solidified this prediction – the animation and camera movements are so exciting and believable, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such an impressively animated 3D cat. The lighting is stunning.

We also get to see the toys reacting to the complex mystery that is toy death as the characters witness a cuddly toy with its head ripped off.

“Is that how we look…on the inside?”

“There’s so much…f-f-f-f-fluff!”

The new poster features the golden trio – Woody, Buzz, and Bo (plus Officer Giggle McDimples, of course) – with the atmospheric blurred carnival lights in the background. Such attention to detail!

Toy Story 4 UK Trailer ‘Freedom’ – New Footage, New Lines, and more!

Toy Story 4, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • March 27, 2019

Pixar’s trailers often differ slightly between regions, and the newly released Toy Story 4 UK trailer is no exception. Watch below:

A lot of the trailer is familiar territory, but we see some new footage which really boasts the film’s beautiful lighting and scenery. Bonnie is looking cuter than ever, the close-up and distant shots are all equally stunning, and the old crew of toys are just as lovable as always.

At the moment, we don’t know a whole lot about Forky. He’s an art project of sorts, made by Bonnie at school, but aside from him not really wanting to be a toy, not much of his personality has been revealed. Perhaps this is shaping up to be a little like the Bing-Bong situation when Inside Out was coming out: we didn’t know much about him to begin with. All we knew was that he looked a little ridiculous, being a creation from a child’s imagination. But with Inside Out‘s release, Bing-Bong went from being a silly side character to one of the most loved and mourned characters in Pixar’s history. Will this be Forky’s fate too? We won’t have to wait long to find out now! Toy Story 4 is in theatres June 21st.

New Toy Story 4 Trailer Set To Release Tomorrow

Toy Story 4, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • March 18, 2019

Good Morning America have revealed that a new Toy Story 4 trailer is going to be released tomorrow, presumably on their regularly scheduled morning air time.

This trailer news comes amidst a whole load of merchandise character reveals. Funko Pop have just shared their upcoming series of Toy Story figurines, and the DisInsider has provided us with a photo.

Here you can see some new characters that we’re already aware of: Ducky and Bunny, Forky, and we’re familiar with Combat Carl plus Combat Carl Jr. from “Toy Story Of Terror”. But who are Officer Giggle McDimples (?!), Gabby Gabby, and Duke Caboom? Those of you that are particularly observant may recognise Duke Caboom – he appeared as an easter egg in Incredibles 2 when we saw Jack-Jack in a crib with a suspicious-looking doll.

Look to the left of Jack-Jack!

With a trailer less than 24 hours away, we can only hope that a lot of our burning questions will be answered!

Bo Peep Stars In New Toy Story 4 Flashback Clip

teasers, Toy Story 4

Posted by Joanna • February 15, 2019

A new Toy Story 4 clip was shown today during a short interview with Annie Potts (voice of Bo Peep) on ‘Good Morning America’.

The short clip is a flashback – Bo is still in her original outfit, as opposed to her recently revealed new look, and you can see that the classic gang of toys are in Andy’s sister Molly’s room. We see the toys carrying out a rescue mission (something that we’ve all grown quite familiar with by now): RC is stuck outside in a rainstorm, and Bo and Woody quickly snap into action.

Bo addresses her sheep by name – Billy, Goat, and Gruff – and orders them to open the blinds, then calls the Barbie dolls into action to propel Jessie up onto the window latch. The clip really shows off Bo’s leadership skills, something that her and Woody clearly have in common.

What do you think of Bo’s new look? And is this a flashback to how Bo and RC got separated from the gang? We’re looking forward to the release of more Toy Story clips and trailers now that summer is steadily approaching!

Woody’s Round Up 01/30/19

Pixar, Toy Story, Toy Story 4

Posted by Joanna • January 30, 2019

2019 is the year that Toy Story 4 releases in theatres, and Pixar are doing well at keeping this at the front of our minds. Amongst all the Toy Story 4 hype (including the official reveal of Bo Peep’s return!), you may have missed out on some smaller stories happening around the studio and beyond.

Heimlich Finds A New Home

For old fans of Disney California Adventure, “A Bug’s Land” is likely to bring back a lot of fond memories. It was closed in September of last year, making room for the future (a new Marvel-themed land). It may serve as some solace to learn that Heimlich, who was the star of the attraction “Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train”, has found a new home back at Pixar Studios.

Tempting New Toy Story Merchandise

With Toy Story 4 just around the corner, companies are making use of the franchise’s spotlight by releasing all sorts of new Toy Story­-themed merchandise.

Korean beauty brand “innisfree” has released a skincare and make-up collection inspired by our favourite Toy Story characters. Mr Potato Head hand cream? Yes please.

Pixarpalooza Origins

Find out how the Pixarpalooza began in this endearing hand-drawn short posted on Pixar’s twitter.

Two Toys With A Twitter Account

Just today, recently revealed Toy Story 4 characters Ducky and Bunny (who appear to live at a carnival) got their very own Twitter account: @duckyandbunny! They seem to have found someone’s lost phone and are using it to share blurry pictures, selfies, and obscene amounts of emojis. It’s interesting that they’re classing a smartphone as a ‘toy’ – maybe this is something that will be explored in Toy Story 4 this summer?

New Toy Story 4 Poster Sees Woody Walking Off Into The Sunset

Poster, Toy Story, Toy Story 4

Posted by Joanna • November 28, 2018

A new Toy Story 4 international poster has been revealed! The new poster features Woody standing a similar pose to a previous teaser poster, seemingly tipping his hat and walking off into what looks like a sunset (and a very beautiful sunset at that).

This stance suggests that Woody is saying a farewell of sorts, and if the little teasing comments from Tim Allen and Tom Hanks (voices of Buzz and Woody) are anything to go by, it seems like there’s a reasonable likelihood that this is exactly what the end of Toy Story 4 is going to involve. But remember – Pixar really do like to throw their curveballs! The only thing that can be guaranteed is that it will definitely surprise us.

Also worth noting is the carnival in the background. We’ve already seen a teaser trailer featuring Ducky and Bunny, two characterful fluffy toys that may or may not be carnival game prizes. Pixar have described Toy Story 4 as “a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends” – it looks like the carnival is going to be a significant stop on the toys’ journey.

At this point, we can still only speculate! But with Toy Story 4 coming out in just over 6 short months, we’re sure more details will be revealed in due course.

The Toy Story 4 Teaser Is Here!

teaser, Toy Story 4

Posted by Joanna • November 12, 2018

Toy Story 4 is set to release in June 2019, so we knew it was only a matter of time before a teaser was coming our way. But that doesn’t make this news any less exciting!

Pixar posted a Toy Story 4 teaser today – you can watch it below:

It’s surprisingly touching to see all these beloved characters in action again, even though we have been spoiled with Toy Story Toons over the past few years. It seems very little is being revealed about the plot at this stage – the toys are simply joyfully holding hands and spinning around in slow motion with the classic ‘Toy Story clouds’ as their backdrop. It’s oddly dreamlike, especially with Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now playing in the background.

With the news that Bo Peep is making a return in Toy Story 4, I was almost expecting her to slowly come into frame as the camera panned round, but perhaps that would have been an obvious twist… The strange spork creature, on the other hand, is not something I could ever have predicted.

Forky – a spork turned toy?

Here is Pixar’s description of Toy Story 4 so far:

“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.”

So is Forky going to be a central character of sorts? Is the movie going to explore the concept of what makes a toy a toy? Can we assume these ‘old friends’ will include Bo? All will be revealed in time, but it’ll be hard to stay patient!

What to expect from this year’s D23 Expo

D23, Pixar, The Incredibles 2

Posted by Joanna • July 12, 2017

This year’s D23 Expo begins on Friday, running from the 14th to the 16th of July. D23’s biennial expos never fail to generate excitement for upcoming Disney and Pixar movies. Somehow the 2011 D23 Expo when “The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind” and “The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs” were announced doesn’t seem so long ago, even though Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur are now sitting proudly amongst the rest of Pixar’s filmography. But what can we expect from D23 2017?

We’re already aware of some of Pixar’s upcoming movies, with Coco’s release date of 22 November fast approaching, and The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 set to release in the summer of 2018 and 2019 respectively.

New footage from Coco is going to be revealed in the Upcoming Films presentation hosted by John Lasseter, and a Drawing Demo with Pixar character artist Daniel Arriaga promises to feature some of Coco’s new characters. Some brand new Incredibles 2 artwork has already been released on the D23 Expo 2017 app, advertising its signing event, although it has since been replaced with just the logo. If the art is anything to go by, it seems like the movie will be a direct sequel to its predecessor, and the ‘Underminer’ may be making an appearance. You can also see several supers flying in the background (including at least one with a cape – I can just hear Edna’s disapproval). And why is there a raccoon?! Here’s hoping all will be revealed soon.

During the Upcoming Films presentation, a large focus will probably be on Coco, but it’s likely that we’ll be finding out some more plot details for The Incredibles 2, and maybe even Toy Story 4. There are also going to be some “surprise announcements”, and with only 3 upcoming Pixar movies on our radars, stretching to only 2 years in the future, perhaps some new movie announcements aren’t too much to hope for.

The Incredibles 2 Is Blasting Into Cinemas Earlier Than Expected

It appears the animation Gods are favoring all fans of The Incredibles this week. It was discovered yesterday that The Incredibles 2 will now be released a whole year early, as opposed to it’s original 2019 slot. This is the best news possible for anyone who has been counting down the days to the film’s release after the original announcement, which itself feels like many moons ago. The Incredibles 2 is blasting through the production pipeline and only means great things surrounding the storytelling aspects. We suppose the Parr family are just incredibly excited to finally team up and hit cinemas again. The sequel to the 2004 hit switched places with Toy Story 4, and will now be released on June 15th, 2018. The bad news is that Toy Story 4, for the second time, is now pushed back and scheduled to be released on June 21st, 2019. Despite Toy Story 4 feeling like it’s stuck in production limbo, it most certainly makes us want to do cartwheels around the office knowing we’re going to be reunited with the Parr family sooner than expected.

Stay-tuned for more updates on the film.
