Meet Forky in the 'Toy Story 4' trailer!

DisneyPixar has just brought online the first trailer for “Toy Story 4” and you can check it out in the player above. There, you’ll meet a brand new character, Forky, whose tale lies at the heart of the summer 2019 release.

In “Toy Story 4,” Woody and the rest of the toys are back for an all-new adventure, welcoming new friends to Bonnie’s room, including a reluctant new toy called Forky.

“Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story,” said director Josh Cooley. “And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But 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.”

But Forky insists that he is NOT a toy! An actual spork-turned-craft-project, Forky is pretty sure that he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip.

“The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose,” said Cooley. “A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.”

Filmmakers called on comedian Tony Hale to provide the voice of Forky.

“It’s a huge thrill to be part of the Toy Story family,” says Hale. “But it’s going to take a while for it to really sink in… A utensil’s existential crisis? I’m in!”

“When we thought up this character, Tony was the first actor that came to mind and I’m thrilled he accepted,” says Cooley. “Tony’s performance as Forky is a comedy salad of confidence, confusion, and empathy… served by hilarious spork.”

“Toy Story 4” hits the big screen June 21, 2019.
