Teaser Trailer for Toy Story 4 Released

Despite any reservations over the series continuing past its ideal finale, the first Toy Story 4 teaser is a welcome reminder of how much affection there is for these characters - and there's some pleasing weirdness in there too.

It's been eight years since Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the gang faced the fiery furnace in Toy Story 3, only to be saved and passed on to a new generation in the form of young girl Bonnie.

As stated in the teaser, Toy Story 4 is slated to release in Summer of 2019.

Since 1995, Pixar's Toy Story film franchise has earned $1.9 billion at the global box office. "Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before". A new character? A spoon with pipe cleaners for arms?

"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", reads the description. And it was the end of Woody's story with Andy. "But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning", he said in a release Monday.

Toy Story 4 is directed by Josh Cooley, written by Stephany Folsom, and story written by Disney Pixar legends John Lasseter, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich.

Forky, voiced by comedian Tony Hale, is a spork facing an identity crisis after having been made into a toy by Bonnie.
