When Pixar announced it was making Toy Story 4, it’s fair to say most fans of the childhood-defining franchise reacted with at least a pinch of fear. The original trilogy was so perfect and could not have ended better. Did we really need a fourth?
The answer, it turns out, was yes. An emphatic yes. Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and co’s latest escapade is every bit as enjoyable and moving as what came before. It also has Keanu Reeves, whose appearance is worth a fourth film alone. Sorry for doubting you Pixar, we’ll never make that mistake again.
Toy Story 4
Toy Story 4 + Digital Bonus, available to buy now on the Virgin Media Store or rent on Virgin Movies from 21 October. Cert U
Toy Story 4 might just be the franchise’s smartest film. It’s still fun and adventurous, but also explores a question that wasn’t really expanded on in the first three movies – what does it mean to be a toy?
This notion is brought to the fore by the appearance of Forky (Arrested Development’s Tony Hale) – a new “toy” cobbled together from a spork, some googly eyes and a piece of pipe cleaner. Forky initally believes he is nothing but trash, but as he forms a bond with Woody and the other toys, he and his newfound friends begin to learn more about themselves and what it means to be alive.
Don’t get us wrong, this is still a kids’ film at heart, but it’s one with so much depth that you’ll be thinking about its message for days.
And with its colourful cast of characters old and new – from Annie Potts’ Bo Peep to Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s double-act as Ducky and Bunny, and from Christina Hendricks’ unsettling Gabby Gabby to Keanu Reeves as the scene-stealing Duke Caboom – there’s never a dull moment.
