First Look At The Villain Of "Toy Story 4" In Action In New Clip

Pixar gave us our first look at Toy Story 4's new villain Gabby Gabby. Seeming to fit in newer villains as of late, she comes in as someone that is seemingly good. When you have a set of creepy, voiceless ventriloquist dummies as henchmen we know that they can't be the case though. I have a feeling Christina Hendricks' Gabby Gabby might wind up being the most villainous toy we've ever got in a Toy Story film. This clip paints her out as helping Woody out, but something about it has me thinking her turn is going to be pretty extreme. I don't know if it's the perfectly deceiving good act, or the fact that I can't get over the creepy ventriloquist dummy. I just think this ones gonna be sinister on a level we've not seen from a toy yet. Anyway, what did y'all think of this clip? Put it in the comments, like, & share.

Second "Official" Trailer For "Toy Story 4"

Even though we've seen a lot of clips from Toy Story 4 so far, this one is calling itself the second Official Trailer for the upcoming Pixar film. After this I'm not sure where the main narrative of this film's going to be. As it seems to keep dancing back & forth between Forky & his rescue, & Woody's relationship with Bo Peep throughout the marketing. This look goes all in on the Forky angle, & if I'm being honest that seems to be the angle I've preferred more so far. Either way it looks hilarious nonetheless. Even though we've seen some of these scenes repeatedly they still made me chuckle. With me all out losing it at the "plush rush" scene. This outing is going to have some highly comedic content from what I've seen so far. Fingers crossed it holds up to the rest of the previous trilogy overall, but if everything we've seen is a hint I think we're safe on that. Very fun trailer though. I just hope it dosen't have a been there done that feel. The Forky rescue does seem like reused Story with new circumstances involved. Anyway, what did y'all think?

TV Spot For "Toy Story 4" Introduces Us To Duke Caboom

Toy Story 4 is going all in when it comes to the comedy this time around. Fully evident in this new TV spot featuring Duke Caboom. Keanu Reeves' character labeled on the box as the best stunt daredevil Canada has ever seen. Only on the box though, out of the package the reality is totally different. As shown in this TV Spot, in a moment that made laugh so hard I had to watch it again just to see what I missed.  Mainly because I highly remember these toys that didn't really live up to their descriptions. It wasn't funny then by no means, but now I can laugh at the false claims we were subjected to as kids. In the days of false advertising lawsuits you don't quite see stuff like this anymore without giant disclaimers. Loved this spot though. Caboom is gonna give Forky a run for being my favorite new character. Once again, June 21st is looking like a date to look forward to. Can't wait to see if this pays off on the emotional level of Toy Story we're used to, & at the same time keep up some of the comedy level these looks keep displaying. Anyway, what did y'all think of this look of Duke Caboom? Put it in the comments, like, & share.

Bo Peep Dominates New Toy Story 4 TV Spot

Bo Peep takes center stage along with some of the new additions in this new TV spot for "Toy Story 4". Including a total laugh out loud moment for me involving Ducky & Bunny & a cat. My worries when it comes to this film are starting to fall away with every new look. Luckily there's a lot going on to fill the time until June 21st. Love this spot though, curious what y'all thought? Put it in the comments, like, & share.

Toy Story 4 Spills It On Some New Characters, Including The Villain

Toy Story 4 is bringing us some new characters. We've already met Ducky & Bunny, but thanks to an Entertainment Weekly exclusive now we've got some more new faces in the form of some of the lost toys. First up, there's the guarded secret of Keanu Reeves' character. Up until now there was no mention of who he'd be voicing in the new installment. Niw we know a little about Duke Caboom. A 70's motorcycling action figure that's the "greatest daredevil in Canada." That is, except for the fact he's never actually been able to pull of any of the stunts in his commercials. Next up, we've got Officer Giggle McDimples. She's a Polly Pocket inspired character. An officer from the Giggle McDimples line of toys. As well as Bo's best friend, to be voiced by Alli Maki. Last but definitely not least, what looks like the creepiest villain ever to grace a Toy Story, Gabby Gabby. A creepy 1950's doll with an voiceless group of henchmen in the form of ventriloquist dolls. This creepy old doll is said to be perfect, except she has one broken thing keeping her form being purchased & loved. Her Annabelle vibe has her down as probably the lost toy I'm most excited for. However, Duke Caboom comes in a very close second, just because of how much I love Keanu Reeves. Just a few more things to get me more excited for Toy Story 4. How bout y'all? What's your favorite synopsis when it comes to these new characters? Put it in the comments, like, & share.

Official Trailer For "Toy Story 4" Released

This official trailer is the first real trailer for the upcoming Toy Story 4. And if anything, it proved that the Toy Story franchise has found yet another way to tug on our heartstrings. June 21st we'll see Woody embark on an adventure to find a runaway toy that was homemade by little Bonnie from a spork. Forky is her favoritest toy in the world right now, & losing it would crush her. If that wasn't enough to get to us Woody seems to find another purpose in this trailer as he's reunited with Bo Peep. Who's been living amongst a group of lost toys. She starts to show him all the things a life outside of a child has to offer. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang attempt a rescue of their own it looks like. I was very pleasantly surprised by this trailer. I found myself wondering if it was to late for this. Not to mention, it's always dangerous to add a fourth to a trilogy. Especially a trilogy that's considered perfect like Toy Story. Just based on what we've seen here though this will contain all the heart of the originals, & leave us all weeping like little babies all over again. This has done exactly what it was supposed to do. It's amped up my excitement level more than it was before. I'm now all in for this round 4 with Woody, Buzz, & the rest of the gang. How about y'all though? What do y'all think after this? One too many, or has this put you on the same page as me, ready to go? Put it in the comments, like, & share.

Big Game TV Spot For "Toy Story 4"

Proving how expensive Superbowl ads have become Disney went for before with their Marvel ads, & after the game for this "Toy Story 4" ad. This clip totally made me laugh out loud too. Woody & Bo Peep get to a carnival, when Bo Peep asks where's Buzz. When Woody tells her he'll probably catch up, you skip to Buzz getting attached to a fence as a carney game prize. This gives us what I'm betting us the first actual scene with Ducky & Bunny, & it's great. I myself, don't think the intro scene for them we got earlier is actually in the film. This however, I'm guessing definitely is. Not wanting to loose their spot as top prize to Buzz, they fight back. Hilarity ensues. I really liked this, once again short, 30 second, trailer. Just enough to get a laugh, & showcase one of the set pieces for the film. Yet, at the same time, not really give away anything. That's 3 short trailers for the big game, & I dug everyone of them. In fact, it might be time to hang up the long super trailer, go back to these. Less to speculate on might help overall results of people being let down due to drawing their own conclusions.

Another Teaser For "Toy Story 4" Introduces Key & Peele's Ducky & Bunny!

Yesterday you met Forky from next summer's Toy Story 4. Today you meet Ducky & Bunny, voiced by the multi-talented comic duo Key & Peele. Woody's gonna get a look at Carney Toy life. These guys get interrupted trying to win their freedom from a life tacked on a wall by Woody & friends. This is one of the things I've liked the most about these movies. The different locales. Being toys, you would figure these films would be hard pressed to get these guys some different scenery. Everytime though, they find new ways to get these toys around from place to place. Can't believe we've got both of these teasers back to back. I love 'em. So far, this has been a really fun way to introduce new characters. What do y'all think? Excited to see the behind the scenes life of Carney Toys on June 21st? I know I am! Put it in the comments, like, & share.

Soo, That's A Thing... Toy Story 4 Teaser

Wow! A totally unexpected Toy Story 4 teaser dropped with some totally unexpected content in the form of what I'm hoping is a significant new character. All is happy in the opening of this teaser. All our friends are together. Until the debut of a homemade spork toy. This is followed by chaos after declaring he shouldn't be there because he's not a toy. For those who have managed to not be familiar with a spork somehow, it's the lovechild of a spoon & a fork. Resulting in a spiked-tipped spoon. Which if you add googly eyes & some pipe cleaners, becomes a very cheap spiky-haired, action-less action figure. Great announcement teaser though. What did y'all think?

"Toy Story 4" Officially Has A Release Date

We now have a date to see whether or not Pixar can add another piece of perfection to the Toy Story franchise. It won't be until June 21st 2019 that we get to find out if the gang can reunite Woody & the lost Bo Peep. That's a little over a year, but at least it's not even close to how long we've all been waiting for Incredibles 2 . I just hope this is the same quality as its predecessors. That trilogy really is a piece of perfection, as I said earlier. It stands right up there with the original Star Wars  trilogy & Back to the Future for me. I would hate to have an awesome trilogy that fades in its fourth installment a la Die Hard . There you go though, save the date. Will you be there on June 21st next year? Or has Toy Story had its run for you? Put it in the comments, like, & share.


"Toy Story 4" Has Found A Writer

I'm not sure where I stand on this one. THR confirmed yesterday that Stephany Folsom was being tapped as screenwriter for Pixar's upcoming Toy Story 4. Folsom was recently denied a "story by" credit on Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok, & that's her only major writing credit. On the good side Thor: Ragnarok was amazing. However, without credit on that, I have to question how involved she was. That said, this is like  handing the keys to your new Lamborghini to someone who just got their permit. Toy Story is Pixar's tried & true. To hand it to someone with such a small resume shows a lot of faith on someone's part. She's replacing Rashida Jones & Will McCormack who left due to creative & philosophical differences. We still have awhile to wait for the quest to find Bo Peep, the only toy to be given away. So, only time will tell how this works out. Fingers crossed. What do y'all think? Too big a leap of faith? Put it in the comments, like, & share.


Ever Wonder What Happened To Andy's Dad From Toy Story?

Toy Story fans, this video is really worth checking out if you've ever been curious about not only what happened to Andy's dad, but also the origins of Woody. Super Carlin Brothers had a sit down with Mike Mozart, friend of late Pixar Head Writer Joe Ranft, & he relayed the story as it was told to him. I'll give you an in a nutshell version. Watch the video for full details. Anyway, the house from Toy Story was Andy's Dad's parents house. Also named Andy as a child he loved Woody's Roundup, which was presented by a cereal company. In order to sell cereal to get their Woody toy you had to send in box-tops. Andy senior's parents were not so well off so he came up short on box-tops, but sent in anyway with a letter explaining he was Woody's biggest fan. The show got cancelled before the Woody's went to manufacturer & the toy hit the trash. It was later picked up by a secretary, who got Andy senior's letter, & she sent it to him. That's why Woody didn't know of his show. It was cancelled & he never came into contact with the other toys. This is where it got intense. Andy senior had polio. All his toys had to go, but he crawled & saved Slinky Dog, Potato Head, & Andy. He then left to go to Seattle, leaving the toys. That's where he met Andy's mom, & had the kids. Post polio sets in. In bad shape they move back in with his parents. He gives the key to little Andy, tells him of a chest where his best friend will be, & passes away before Andy can come back with the chest. With Andy junior looking exactly like his dad when the toys awaken in the chest they just figure he's Andy Sr., as they have know track of time while asleep. So, there you go, a Toy Story prequel even more sad than Up. It's cool to know that this much thought goes into these stories though. That's shows a lot of love & passion goes into these Pixar films, with every consideration taken. Watch the video if that was interesting. It goes way deeper into everything. Let us know what you think of these revelations in the comments, like, & share. 

(UPDATE) : Andrew Stanton, who helped write 1995's Toy Story has dubbed this fake news. Very interesting story though nonetheless.  Who knows if this was really told in the long run. If so, it seems it was an afterthought. 

R.I.P. Don Rickles (1926-2017)

It's always a sad day when we lose another. Don Rickles passed at the age of 90 of kidney failure Thursday in his L.A. home. With over 100 appearances on the Tonight Show, Disney fans will recognize him best as Pixar's Toy Story's Mr. Potato Head. He's survived by Barbara, his wife of 52 years. As well as his daughter Mindy Mann, her husband Ed, &  their two grandchildren Ethan & Harrison. Don Rickles, thank you for the funnies & you will definitely be missed. Hopefully, you are in a better place.
