Gabby Gabby and Benson grab on Woody's pull string, and try to pull Woody back while Buzz, Bunny, Ducky And Giggle pull on the rope. Woody's voice box starts to slightly come out.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The Ending can be quite upsetting for those who have followed the series since the beginning.
  • A cat swallows a toy, but it throws it back up soon after.
  • A toy wants Woody's voice-box and attempts to take it by force on numerous occasions.
  • Two plush toys (played by famous comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, known as the comedy duo "Key & Peele") grow huge, shooting lasers from their eyes and breathing fire, but this is soon revealed to be a dream. This can be a little scary for some younger viewers.
  • Sad separation between two toys in the opening scene
  • A main character, Forky, tries to put himself in the trash multiple times throughout the movie, which is clearly him trying to commit suicide. His actions are obviously played for laughs, however, and any darker intepretations will certainly fly over younger viewers' heads. However, the depiction of his suicidal actions are somewhat realistic, and can be disturbing for some older viewers.
  • Some viewers may find it quite sad when Woody gives up his voice box.
