The toys are back on the big screen with an all-new adventure in “Toy Story 4.” Woody, Buzz and the whole gang
find themselves far from home, discovering new friends—and old ones—on an eye-opening road trip that takes
them to unexpected places.
Fans around the world thought the toys’ story had ended when Andy brought his long-loved pull-string cowboy Woody and the gang—Buzz, Jessie, Slinky, Rex and the rest—to live with Bonnie, a young friend of the family who—like Andy—has a huge imagination when it comes to her toys. “Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story,” says director Josh Cooley. “Turns out it was only the end of Woody’s story with Andy. Just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”
If you are wondering if you should see Toy Story 4, the answer is an undoubtedly YES! It’s a missing piece of the story that you didn’t know you needed to hear. Plus, the new characters that were introduced were absolutely hilarious! This movie had me laughing and crying!

being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and
Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their
