Toy Story 4 was a remarkable movie. Remarkable because it was incredibly entertaining on so many levels, it is fantastic for children, and adults:
Director Josh Cooley’s debut feature film is the fourth instalment in Pixar’s Toy Story series, which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and Tony Hale. Woody, Buzz and co. are now the possessions of a young girl named Bonnie Anderson, who introduces a major complication into their lives when she turns a spork into a toy. Forky, however, sees himself as an eating utensil and not a toy.
Josh Cooley did an incredible job. He took a well established franchise, completed the fourth movie in the franchise, and raised everything to an even higher level. My husband could not stop talking about how Forky, perfectly voiced by Tony Hale represented the existential nature of our lives, and the sheer intelligence of the writing of this movie.
The kids will love this movie because all their favorites are back in a loving and poignant last movie, that does offer us closure! Miss Bo Peep is a heck on an empowered woman, and a great character voice by the terrific Annie Potts. Tom Hans and Tim Allen are as wonderful as ever as Buzz and Woody, characters we have loved for almost 25 years!
