If you haven’t found a Cinema Buddy yet… FIND ONE!
Today on Good Morning America, we received our first full trailer for Toy Story 4, that will be hitting theatres June 21, 2019. But before we discuss our thoughts, go ahead and give the trailer a watch.
Ok, so first off my initial reaction to the beginning of the trailer, was that I was a little underwhelmed with seeing the gang back in the familiar bedroom environment that is always associated with the Toy Story movies. Almost to the stage where I was thinking, do we need another instalment in this franchise.
Then, the theme change happened. At 1 min 25 secs, Pixar flipped the script, and I’m now excited to see this final instalment for Toy Story.
As up until now, every Toy Story movie has revolved around the Toy/Owner relationship, however this sequel blows past the set-norms of the story universe that has been built up until now, and expands the narrative beyond the 3 part saga.
This looks to be Woody’s journey, and the heart-warming romantic relationship between Woody and Bo Peep seems to be the centre of the movie. Pixar are breaking through traditional animation barriers with this movie, and are supposedly telling a love story and journey of discovery with these beloved characters. Which is something that is sure to pull at the heartstrings of the audiences watching it around the world.
So, when June 21, 2019 rolls around, I’ll be eagerly awaiting one last adventure with Woody, Buzz and the gang, as if Pixar returned to this franchise to tell this particular story, then they must have an incredible ending to this quarter of a century of storytelling.
