“Toy Story 4” - Held over! One of the most anticipated films of the summer is Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen (Woody and Buzz Lightyear) have done it again in a critically-acclaimed long-awaited sequel that focuses on caring and friendship. Woody (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 (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.
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 (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 what they want from life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.
