The original Toy Story film came out in 1995 and was a massive success.
It spawned sequels that went on to break records, and break hearts.
You totally cried during at least one of the films.
No shame. #SupportSquad.
We apologize to every single one of you who just had a moment. We get it.
Anyway, so it's 2019 and Toy Story is about to drop another undoubtedly emotional bomb on us all. They just hit Twitter with a brand new preview for Toy Story 4.
Check it out:
Old friends, new faces, and the adventure of a lifetime. #ToyStory4 https://t.co/taswCy2oiG— Toy Story 4 (@Toy Story 4)1555610735.0
People are super excited about it, obviously, but the most impressive part of the preview isn't what you might think. The storyline looks great, the recurring characters are all the faces we know and love, but that's not what people are dropping their jaws over.
What's really got folks stunned is the animation on that cat!
I'm shocked by how good the CGI animation for this cat looks in Toy Story 4. I swear it looks like live action foot… https://t.co/XV3E7xe5nB— Animated Antic (@Animated Antic)1555610533.0

But this one comment has us a bit freaked out, honestly.
@FrickEpic @Animated_Antic Makes you question if animated deep fakes will be a problem in the future.— QuietKilljoy (@QuietKilljoy)1555662114.0
I mean... we hadn't actually wondered if animated deep fakes would be a problem in the future, but now that you mention it and now that we've seen what Pixar is capable of ... should we be worried?
In a perfect world the powers of this kind of animation would only be used for good or for awesome.
We're not sure if we should be scared or not. What we do know is that we will absolutely be in the audience ugly-crying when the movie premiers.
Don't worry. We won't judge you.
