If you were one of the many people who had their televisions tuned into the lowest scoring Super Bowl of all time, you likely heightened the experience by catching a few of the movie trailers on display during the festivities. And perhaps none of them were more anticipated than the new Toy Story 4 trailer.
We didn’t get much from Pixar’s latest peak at flick, but it was 30 seconds of new footage – and our first look at Bo Peep’s return. Disney and Pixar dropped a synopsis for the movie last week, indicating that the fourth installment would take place during a road trip of Bonnie’s family.
The Toy Story 4 trailer puts us at a carnival during the group’s vacation. And it’s here that the gang will come across the stuffed animals of Ducky and Bunny, voice by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
The opening of the Toy Story 4 trailer reintroduces Woody with Bo Peep as the latter asks where Buzz is as he was supposed to meet them. Woody notes that he must have gotten held up.
Quick cut to a Buzz being zip tied to a carnival game wall, and the introduction of Ducky and Bunny. “Up here astroboy” Key’s Ducky calls out to Buzz. The duo are apparently not impressed with Buzz’s inclusion on the prize wall. “You think you can take our top prize spot?” Bunny yells down to him.
Buzz just wants to get the hell out of there though, and tries to squeeze himself from the confines of the tightly bound zip tie. He asks the two stuffed animals to help him get out of his restrains, to which Ducky replies “Oh, I’ll help you… with my foot!”
He begins kicking Buzz in the head a few times before Lightyear quickly traps it by closing his helmet. “In the vacuum of space, they can not hear you SCREAM!” Ducky belts out as his webbed foot gets closed upon.
The Toy Story 4 trailer didn’t really bring much, but it’s something. The movie hits theaters on June 21st, so we don’t have terribly longer to wait. Until then, you’ll just have to make due with Disney and Pixar’s breakdown:
“Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) 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. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.”
