I have had zero good feelings towards Toy Story 4 since Pixar announced it. As far as I’m concerned, Toy Story 3 was a perfect ending. Nothing could possibly be worth continuing the series. Maybe I’ll feel the same when Toy Story 4 finally releases. Right now, though, it looks like another hit. I’m lowkey mad right now that this trailer was so good and made me so interested.
For anyone who held the same pessimism I did, I can’t think of a better trailer to rid you of it. Bo Peep is back and looks to finally get her character arc as we find out what happened to her. A spork raises a slew of new questions about the sentience of everyday objects in this universe while also furthering the existentialism theme covered often in Toy Story. Woody again struggles with his own desires and his responsibility as a toy. It looks incredible. I can’t believe how good it looks.
Add in some genuinely creepy Slappy-from-Goosebumps dolls seemingly serving as bodyguards for the antagonist toy and you have a recipe for one hell of a good movie.
Ever since the fantastic debut of the Toy Story series, I feel like pessimism has reigned with each new entry in the series. Toy Story 2 couldn’t possibly top the first. The third couldn’t possibly top the second, especially after such a long period between the movies. Now here I am again, saying the same thing about Toy Story 4. After this trailer I feel like I’ll be proven wrong yet again. Whatever evil magic Pixar uses to make these movies seems to be intact. I’ts genuinely awe-inspiring to see how endlessly inspired these movies are.
I’m prepared to be stunned and crying yet again when Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21.
