Experience the Toy Story World This Week At The ASLC

When the Internet urged filmmakers for an additional movie to the Toy Story trilogy, the Pixar gods surely delivered. Woody, Buzz and the whole gang are back. The iconic Disney Pixar series’ newest film, Toy Story 4, premiered on June 20. The movie earned an impressive 97 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 8.1 out of 10 rating on IMDb reflecting viewers’ positive response to this movie.

So, what is this Toy Story sequel about? According to Rotten Tomatoes, the 90-minute-long film is a fresh new take on the secret life of toys. This continuance of the Toy Story 3 storyline is built on Woody’s dedication and loyalty to his new owner, Bonnie. When her new toy “Forky” does not want to embrace being a toy, it is up to Woody to convince “Forky” that even though he is made from trash, he is not trash to restore Bonnie’s happiness. The whole gang of toys ends up going on a road trip and meeting up with new and old toys along the way, including, Bo Peep who challenges Woody’s perception of life as a toy.
