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.


Disney Throws Us Some New & Updated Release Dates

Disney released the newest upcoming release date line-up, & it now includes dates for Aladdin, Christopher Robin, Artemis Fowl & more. I was just going take the easy way out & list the new ones, but I figured why not list the whole thing? Here's Disney's upcoming release line up: 

  • Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017): Literally already have tickets for this one. 
  • Coco (November 22, 2017): I was worried at first with this being so close to the material of Book of Life, but I can't get enough of what I've seen so far.
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi (December 15, 2017): Every time the trailer for this film plays I stop what I'm doing. Doesn't matter where I am. I can't wait for this.  
  • Black Panther (February 16, 2018): I didn't know much about the Black Panther until I watched the cartoon mini-series from awhile before the MCU. I loved that series though. Hoping this follows suit.
  • A Wrinkle in Time (March 9, 2018): I'm not sure what to think of this yet. The trailer showed they've definitely got the means & the budget to make this, this time around. It's a very intriguing story.
  • Dolphins (April 20, 2018): Saw my first DisneyNature film in theaters with the China one this year, & I'm thinking that's going to become our new Earth Day thing. Beautiful film. 
  • Avengers: Infinity War (May 4, 2018): Can this just happen already?
  • Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story (May 25, 2018): Hopefully this movie will overcome it's many developmental problems & have a name by the time it's released.
  • Incredibles 2 (June 15, 2018): Why have we waited so long? This should've been a thing already.
  • Untitled Christopher Robin Project (August 3, 2018): This is probably one of the most intriguing films on this list. This will either be great or just wrong on so many levels. Love Ewan McGregor though.
  • The Nutcracker & the Four Realms (November 2, 2018): I had never heard of this until today, but with Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, & Morgan Freeman, I will make a point to hear more.
  • Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 (November 21, 2018): Loved the first. Heard the sneak peek at D23 was great.
  • Mary Poppins Returns (December 25, 2018): Fingers crossed. It's been a long time. Emily Blunt & Lin-Manuel Miranda though? It's gotta be good right?
  • Dumbo (March 29, 2019): Tim Burton? Really? Have you heard about the new story? This is the one on this list, if any, that I just don't know about this one working at all.
  • Untitled DisneyToon Studios Film (April 12, 2019): Aviation. That's everything known about this movie. I have more faith in that than Dumbo.
  • Live-Action Aladdin (May 24, 2019): This one is shaping up to be ever so strange. I have to see it just for that fact. Can all the peculiar choices work?
  • Toy Story 4 (June 21, 2019): Can I get tickets for this now? Only question I have is will this coincide with the opening of Toy Story Land?
  • Artemis Fowl (August 9, 2019): I kinda see this as Disney's answer to Harry Potter. I hope this is good enough to make me want to read the books as well. 
  • Nicole (November 8, 2019): This is the weird daughter of Santa Claus movie starring Anna Kendrick. This thing is still happening.
  • Star Wars: Episode IX (December 20, 2019): Newest test in J.J. Abrams ending something as good as he begins them.

Any of these stand out? Any of these you want to go away? Hit the links for everything heard so far, & then put your thoughts in the comments, like, & share.


D23 Animation Panel Features Coco, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Toy Story & More

The more I hear about this panel the more I have to think it seemed like more show than substance. That's not a bad thing either, all they want out of these is tease & hype. I wasn't there at all, I'm just going off the small amount of info that was really revealed vs. the scale of the show that accompanied. It is Disney however, & it is all about the show when it comes down to it. Hosted by John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Pixar & Walt Disney Animation Studios. It was a total star studded event. Filled with all kinds of behind the scenes goodies. Here's a quick breakdown of everything:

Untitled Disneytoon Studio Film: First we'll talk about this original new animated picture from Disneytoon Studios. On April 12, 2009 we'll explore the future of aviation all the way to the stars. Directed by Klay Hall & Bobs Gannaway, & produced by Ferrell Barron, I didn't really get enough out of anything I heard to form an opinion on this one. All I've heard was the Space Shuttle had eyes.

Untitled Dan Scanlon Film: Currently in production from Pixar Animation Studios, the director of Monster's University brings us this new original film set in a "suburban fantasy world". Scanlon, talked about losing his father at an early age & went on saying the film is inspired by the question, who was my father? In a world populated by elves, trolls, & sprites we follow 2 elf brothers that lost their fathers when they were too young to remember. With a little magic they take on a quest to that will allow them one last day with their father.

Coco: Right around the corner, I figured the push on this would be a total spectacle. I was right, this ended the show with a bang. Nov. 22, 2017 Pixar's Coco will give us a look at music loving Miguel. Though his family banned music long ago, he follows his love all the way to the Land of the Dead. There he meets his extended family, & in his journey home try to reveal the truth behind his family's ban of tunes. Lee Unkrich (Director), Adrian Molina (co-director), & Darla Anderson shared details of the film with the audience. Followed by the first public performance of Remember Me from the upcoming movie by Anthony Gonzalez (Miguel) & Benjamin Bratt (Ernesto de la Cruz). By the time all was said & done more that 160 performers were on stage, including the Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea, Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles, & the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band. Even though this movie sounds like we may have seen it before (The Book of Life), & it does sound pretty close, I can't help but be really excited to see Pixar's take.



Olaf's Frozen Adventure: It's only natural to bring this one up next, as it will be the opener for Pixar's Coco. Kristen Bell (Frozen's Anna) came out to introduce this holiday adventure featuring the characters of Frozen. The trailer looked great to this 22-minute short will be directed by Kevin Deters & Stevie Wermers-Skelton (Prep & Landing), & produced by Roy Conli (Big Hero 6). Best of all it features my favorite snowman, Olaf. Speaking of Olaf, that's what happened next. Josh Gad (Olaf) surprised the audience with a live performance of the featurette's song That Time of the Year. You just never know what going to happen at D23.

Frozen 2 (Title TBA): Not much was really revealed about the upcoming sequel to 2013's much acclaimed Frozen. A behind-the-scenes video of the research trip to Norway, Finland, & Iceland was shown. Considering Nov. 27, 2019 is a little more than a hop, skip, & jump away, I wasn't expecting much more.

Toy Story 4: Josh Cooley (Riley's First Date?) was invited to the stage to reveal him as the sole director of Toy Story 4, accompanied by a behind-the-scenes day in the life at the studio film. This will be produced by Jonas Rivera (Inside Out) & is going for a June 21, 2019. Once again not too close, so I wasn't really expecting much. They teased some new characters, including a paper doll, but nothing to exciting.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2: Directors Rich Moore & Phil Johnston introduced Sarah Silverman (Vanellope von Schweetz), in what I knew was going to be something big, as this one is coming next year on Nov. 21, 2018. Silverman introduced a clip from the sequel, letting us know she has a glitch so she, along with returning Ralph (John C. Reilly), Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch), & newcomer, website owning algorithm Yesss (Tariji P. Henson), ventures into the internet. In the clip they find themselves at Oh My Disney where they run into the Disney Princesses, 3-D animated no less. I've heard it's a really funny scene that was then blown away. How? As they go on to tell everyone that the actual princesses came back to reprise their roles, they figured seeing was believing. Auli'i Cravalho (Moana), Kristen Bell (Anna), Kelly MacDonald (Merida), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), Paige O'Hara (Belle), & Jodi Benson (Ariel) took the stage, blowing everyone away. Can't wait to see this movie, I loved the first. I would say people seemed most buzzed about this, if it wasn't for the next entry.

Incredibles 2: I can't believe it's taken this long to finally get a sequel to this movie. However, June 15, 2018 we will finally get to visit this super-powered family again for the first time since 2004. This started with a look into what the fashion world thinks of Incredibles stylist Edna Mode. Featuring Heidi Klum, Kendall Jenner, Zac Posen, & Rachel Zoe, this thing was hilarious. I love Edna Mode. She was one of my favorite parts of the original film. Next up, director Brad Bird (Voice of Edna too) was brought on with Craig T. Nelson (Mr. Incredible), Holly Hunter (Mrs. Incredible), Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (newbie Huck Milner, & Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson). They revealed details of a bigger universe, containing new allies & an all new villain. The first one is still the best rendition of Fantastic 4 we've ever had. I've been waiting for this for awhile, & I think as superhero crazed as everyone is this will go over even better this time around. There was also a unfinished clip featuring Jak Jak coming into his powers. Mr. Incredible falls asleep watching the baby. Next thing you know Jak Jak comes into all his new powers while fighting a raccoon. I've heard this was hilarious. I hope we get to see it when it's finished.
