If you told us a movie about a plastic spork being dug out of the trash would make over a billion dollars, we’d think you were nuts. But Toy Story 4 managed to do just that while keeping a 25-year-old franchise fresh and fun. Screen Junkies latest trailer reminded us it’s about time for us to queue up a Toy Story marathon.
Awesome Toy Story

The latest trailer for Disney Pixar’s Toy Story 4 shows more of Woody, Buzz, and the gang’s misadventures as they try to rescue their new friend, a silly and happy go lucky toy spork. They make new friends along the way, some with questionable ideas. The movie premieres 6/21/19.
Toy Story’s spacey action hero must do battle with the Dark Lord of the Sith after landing his spaceship right under his nose. Will good or evil triumph in this unexpected showdown from the guys at Nukazooka? We knew this sort of thing would happen after Disney bought Star Wars.
