The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody's slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they're two worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.Written by
When Ducky kept hitting Buzz Lightyear in the head with his foot, Buzz closes his helmet on Ducky's foot at the right moment. This is a reference to when Buzz did something similar to Woody's hand, when the cowboy kept hitting him in the head repeatedly. See more »
At the beginning while Woody is in the closet the letters on his boot disappear. See more »
Scenes over first part of credits further the story of Woody and Bo's new carnival gang, followed by a scene showing what Bonnie made after her first day of first grade. (First grade Bonnie does not appear, however.) See more »
These four movies have largely had the exact same plot which revolves around lost toys finding homes and strangers seeking companionship. While the third really elevated the simplicity of these movies for me by showing the darker emotions that stem from being cast out, the fourth is such a weak return to form that it leaves me wondering why it even needed to exist.
The plot is only there to service the statement that the creators wanted to state, which I will leave out if you haven't seen the film yet. A non-existent villain, weak time constraints, a very on-the-nose new character, and a whole lot of melodrama about growing old that is not unique to this movie make me wish that the final "revelation" about the toys was fit into the third entry or just ignored altogether. It's something that sounds sweet outside the movie, but the point is hammered into your brain so blatantly that it loses the deftness with which Pixar so famously tells their stories.
All in all, the film felt mediocre and served as a weak goodbye to these characters that already cemented their friendship powerfully in the previous movie.
