The Toy Story trilogy is a trilogy no more. Toy Story 4 extends Pixar’s biggest cash cow with a brand new adventure starring the world’s most lovable CGI playthings. This time, Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the rest of the gang go looking for Forky (Tony Hale), a toddler’s crude arts-and-crafts creation that gets separated from the rest of the group. Along the way, they run into Bo Peep (Annie Potts) in an antique shop, who dispenses wisdom in the sentimental tradition of all Pixar movies. Josh Cooley directs.
