Toy Story 4: {Spoiler Free} Movie Review

It’s been 22 years since Woody and Buzz first graced the screen in Toy Story. But has the story run its course or is Toy Story the ending we all need???

Ever since I heard they were making another Toy Story movie I was a little worried because I thought the last movie was the perfect ending to the trilogy. However, THIS is the perfect ending to the series.

Truth be told, I’m terrified of ventriloquist dummies and there were a lot of them in the movie (see them in the movie poster)! I find them super creepy and so if you are scared of them as well just know you’ll be jumping and turning your eyes away a few times.

Official Synopsis

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) 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. So, when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.

I enjoyed Toy Story 4…not as much as previous ones, but it really was a good ending to series.  Forky is cute and struggles with his place in the toy group, but ultimately discovers his place and why he’s so special.  The mix of new characters with old favorites is perfect.

I can’t wait to take my kids to see the movie when it opens. I don’t have little ones anymore; however, if you have sensitive littles or ones that frighten easy then you may want to see it first so you can warn them before certain things. There are a few places where the toys jump and scare the other toys.  Heck, it scared me (remember…I’m already scared of the dummies though).

Toy Story 4 opens nationwide Friday (6/21/19)!
