The most recent installment takes place after the events of the last movie, when college-bound Andy gave all of his toys to rugrat Bonnie. Unfortunately for sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks), that means he’s now no longer the favorite toy and must cope with life in the closet, surrounded by dust. When Bonnie’s family goes on a road trip, our lovable plastics and plushies tag along for the ride. That’s where Woody soon comes into contact with a love interest from his past, Bo Peep (Annie Potts).
Among the returning toys are spaceman Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), deputy Jessie (Joan Cusack), dinosaur Rex (Wallace Shawn), piggy bank Hamm (John Ratzenberger), Slinky Dog (Blake Clark), Mrs. Potato Head (Estelle Harris) and Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles, from archival recordings). Some of the new “Toy Story 4” play-things include the made-from-trash Forky (Tony Hale), 1950s doll Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks), Canadian stuntman Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves) and carnival toys Ducky (Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (Jordan Peele).
Despite the fact that fans voted “Toy Story 4” as their least favorite in the franchise, it’ll still likely be embraced at next year’s Academy Awards. After all, each of the first three films received Oscar nominations and/or wins:
“Toy Story” won a Special Achievement Oscar and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay, Best Score and Best Song (“You’ve Got a Friend in Me”)
“Toy Story 2” earned a nomination for Best Song (“When She Loved Me”)
“Toy Story 3” won Best Animated Feature and Best Song (“We Belong Together”) and also scored bids for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound Editing
