I didn't think I needed a Toy Story 4. A "fourth" movie always has the stigma attached to it that it won't be as good as the first three and the creators are just in it for the money. Not to mention, the people that started out with the first Toy Story are probably as old as Andy, if not older. That being said, I laughed hysterically. It starts out light-hearted, like a children's film should. All the characters we know and grew up with holding hands in some "Ring Around The Rosie" formation to the tune of Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now'. Everything feels wholesome, if you will (I won't lie. Within the first 5 seconds I thought, "Yup. Definitely not seeing this one."). Then, a new "fork" character broke up the monotony out of nowhere and I've never resonated with an eating utensil more in my life. Forkey, my spirit animal, enters the scene shouting "I DON'T BELONG HERE! I'M NOT A TOY!!" Pure. Gold.
To take it a step further, it looks like Keegan Michael Key & Jordan Peele are joining the fray as carnival toys, Duckey and Bunny. And if you're a Key & Peele fan you'll noticed they reprised their 'Valets' sketch reminiscing over past Toy Story moments. Disney Pixar is really going all out for the fourth installment.
