Toy Story 4
I just saw Toys Story 4 today and- Disney, why do you do this to me?! Tearjerker! And I was NOT expecting it.
The movie was super sweet and I thought the animation was really amazing. The scenery looked almost real at several points in the film.
Disney and Pixar would not have gone with a fourth film if they didn’t have a superb storyline and they did not disappoint! While you will like the story and the humor, it is the Toy Story 4 characters (most of whom you have followed through the past 24 years!) that will make you fall in love with this movie!
Should I take my toddler to see Toy Story 4?
I took my 2-year-old and he did fine. He was about engaged as a toddler can be at the movie theater and he does like Toy Story after watching the previous 3 films at home. I would definitely suggest familiarizing your toddler with the characters to get him/her pique interest and stay engaged.
*heads up this next paragraph could reveal just a little about the movie! Skip to the next section if you don’t have a toddler or want to know anything about the film!
Was it scary? There was a “scary” part in the movie. When we meet the new character, Gabby Gabby, and her friends. The music and lighting are a little dark to set the tone. Gabby maintains a falsely friendly tone but Benson, the ventriloquist dummy, is a little scary. I expected my toddler (and my preschooler) to at least look towards Mom but neither of them was phased by the scene. If you think your toddler might be frightened easily, a potty break would time perfectly at the scene where Woody and Forky go into the antique shop.
I believe there was the word “idiot” used and a mild joke or two that was more for the parents than the kids. All in all, this was a very typical Disney movie in terms of language and theme. Personally, I think this is a fine movie to take your toddler to, with just a bit of hand-holding from Mom!
Who are the Toy Story 4 characters?
This movie blended your favorites from the first three movies with some lovable (and not so loveable!) new faces!
I’m giving you my own impressions of the characters with some snippets straight from the Disney Media kit (in italics with author quoted when possible).
Who is back?
Woody– Always the leader, loyal Woody is back and doing everything in his power to save toys. He is still trying to adjust to a new kid in a new room so he takes on a “big brother” role to Bonnie’s new “toy”, Forky.
Supervisor Valerie LaPointe, “Woody is trying to find his place in Bonnie’s room. He realizes she’s uncomfortable about going to kindergarten and he jumps at the opportunity to help her, which ultimately leads him to adopt a new set of self-imposed responsibilities when Bonnie creates Forky.”
Buzz– It wouldn’t be a Toy Story movie without everyone’s favorite space ranger! Buzz is forever the hero and at Woody’s side as second in command. Don’t expect to see as much of Buzz as in the first 2 movies, but he does step up into the leadership role you always knew he was capable of holding.
“Woody and Buzz’s friendship has come a long way. According to Allen, the new story takes their unlikely bond even further. “Buzz wants Woody to do the right thing—but sometimes doing the right thing is really, really hard to do,” says Allen. “Loyalty is fundamental to Buzz and this story takes loyalty to a new level.”
You will love Buzz as the funny, loyal, and strong toy you have come to expect from this character.
Bonnie- Sweet and sensitive Bonnie is back and not-so-ready for kindergarten. Her love for her toys becomes even more clear and I promise you will love her again!
Returning supporting characters– Jessie, Hamm, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Mr. Rickles, Dolly, Trixie, and Rex are all back and full of laughs! You will see less of this group as we meet new characters and are outside of the setting of Bonnie’s room throughout the movie. You can though, depend on this crew for support and laughs as always!
I read here that the role of Mr. Potato in Toy Story 4 was intended to reprised by Don Rickles but unfortunately he died 2 years before the movie was released. His family agreed to have his voiced used posthumously. The editorial team painstakingly went through sound footage and was able to piece together enough to include Mr. Potato Head, in his original voice, in Toy Story 4 .
Who are the NEW Toy Story 4 characters:
No spoilers! I’ll keep it to a minimum so I don’t give away all of the storyline!
Bo Peep– Yes, she is back but don’t expect the same sweet, mild-mannered sheep attendant you saw in Toy Story 1. Bo has been through some things during her absence. She is a tough, self-supporting female role in the movie that will definitely have you cheering “Girl power”!.
“Annie Potts returns as the voice of Bo Peep. “Bo is everything that we want to be,” says Potts. “She is independent and courageous and funny and smart and able to tackle it all on her own. Her life hasn’t been easy, but whose life is? She is an excellent model of making it in the face of adversity.”
Forky- Forky is a new “toy” of Bonnie’s creation. As a parent, you know how attached you child can become to any object whether it is a toy or an everyday object- and this guy is dear to Bonnie’s heart. He isn’t exactly a willing participant in this attachment and it takes a bit of coaching by Woody to explain the life and role of a toy. Forky adds such an amusing tone to the movie and I really liked him by the end of the film.
“Forky was born, so to speak, in the story room during a casual discussion in which filmmakers wondered what qualifies as a toy. “We were joking around,” says Cooley, “wondering what would happen if we had a toy that was not manufactured. Would it be alive? Those weird existential questions about the ‘Toy Story’ universe are really fun. If a child plays with you, are you a toy?”
Gabby Gabby- Gabby Gabby is a 1950’s pull string doll who has been without a kid for far too long. I wasn’t sure whether I hated her or I loved her and I won’t tell you which I settled on so I don’t give anything away!
“Gabby Gabby is voiced by Christina Hendricks. “It became obvious right away that Christina was the perfect actress to play Gabby Gabby,” says director Josh Cooley. “She has the ability to sound inviting and friendly, then subtly become cold and terrifying in just a few words. It still gives me chills when I see Gabby’s introduced on in the film.”
Ducky and Bunny– These 2 colorful guys are the stuffed carnival prizes you have seen in the trailers. I got the same initial impression with them as I did with Gabby Gabby “do I love them or hate them?”. They reveal their true colors even sooner than Gabby does and add another humorous element to the movie.
“Ducky and Bunny bring a new level of fun to the ‘Toy Story’ universe,” adds Nielsen. “Their view of the world has been very singular as they go from town to town in the same booth, staring out at the world. They have no moral compass because they’ve watched kid after kid spend money on a game that’s unwinnable by design. Not only are they learning bad things about human nature, they’re trapped because of it.”
Giggle McDimples– I love how this gal balances being adorable with girl power. She looks like the equivalent of a Polly Pockets but as an “officer” and friend of Bo’s, this girl can’t be kept in a little locket!
“According to Hartline, Giggle’s size influenced their approach to her animation. “The way we animate her has to be very specific and unique,” he says. “She’s so small with such a big personality that we have to bounce her around like a flea—she snaps into poses.”
Duke Caboom– This sort-of brave motorcycle riding “dare” devil has more heart than talent.
“Says LaPointe, “Duke Caboom is an action figure who was immediately rejected by his kid when he was opened on Christmas day because he couldn’t do the jump exactly like the commercial.”
There are a few other supporting characters, such as Bonnie’s parents, who add fun and suspense to the overall feel of the film. You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all, you will love these characters!
