Just when you thought it was finally over. Pixar reels you back in, with a spork.
When I sat down in the theatre all those years ago to watch the very first Toy Story, who knew that over 20 years later, we would be sitting here talking about the 4th and final installment. You can’t deny that Pixar doesn’t know what they are doing. Do we honestly need a 4th Toy Story? Probably not. But somehow they have made this captivating and I’m once again invested in our beloved toys. How can you not be, once we hear those voices of Hanks and Allen, you almost can’t help but get a tad emotional.
This feels like Toy Story 2 and 3 all wrapped into one. We are going on a road trip, and finding out what it truly means to be a toy. Meeting up with some old friends, while making new ones. I’m sure the last ride with these friends will be bittersweet.
It’s pretty darn cute this Forky aspect of the film. It’s something that feels new and fresh and so far from what we have seen from previous iterations. Which makes this more interesting, because it’s a nice new spin on a franchise that could very well feel old and worn out.
