They're back, and bringing new friends. Well, maybe it's a friend. We aren't sure.
The new trailer for Pixar's Toy Story 4 just dropped and among the familiar faces of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Slinky, there is a new face, Forky. From what we can tell, Forky appears to be a craft project gone wrong ala Pinterest fails.
In the trailer, the other toys seem to be floating along in harmony until Forky freaks out and realizes he doesn't belong. According to the blurb sent out with the trailer:
"Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called 'Forky' to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy."

But in a disturbing piece of new information, Tom Hanks, who voices Woody the Cowboy, recently did an interview with the BBC's "The Chris Evans Breakfast Show where he discussed the incredibly emotional ending. Hanks had this to say about recording the final scene:
"The way you record 'Toy Story,' you're in a room with the team that has created it. When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually you're facing him so you can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn't want to see them and I wanted to pretend they couldn't see me. When I realized what they were going for, I realized, 'Oh, this is a moment in history."
People are freaking out that Woody could die..

Okay, we can't even go there right now. So until summer we are simply going to focus on Forky.
It's going to be okay. Just breath and think about Forky.
