The trailer of “Toy Story 4” is out in both theatres and on YouTube. Fans are excited about the new characters, including Forky, Bunny, and Ducky.
On their website, IMDb summarized the movie: “When a new toy called ‘Forky’ joins Woody and the gang, a road trip alongside old and new friends reveals how big the world can be for a toy.”
However, last week the script of “Toy Story 4” was accidently leaked. Fans found out that the movie will be based on these new characters, Forky, Bunny, and Ducky, instead of Woody and his gang. This was the reason for giving them a longer screen time on the trailers instead of the “older” main characters. The reason for the main toys being shown when Forky was being introduced was to avoid the risk of losing Toy Story fans.
Many fans are divided after figuring out these hidden messages.
“I wasn’t expecting and still can’t think of watching ‘Toy Story’ without having Woody and Buzz Lightyear as the main,” stated Joe Sablan, a sophomore studying digital media. “It will be a risk because there will be people who would want to watch Woody and his gang instead of a new character. They are also ‘tricking’ the people, which is not ethical.”
Sandy Wohler, also a sophomore, said that she did not like it when she found out that the movie was going to be replaced with new characters. “They shouldn’t have named it ‘Toy Story 4’ if they are going to show new characters. Pixar is famous for putting in Easter eggs and they could have put in the gang as one of those with a new movie, instead of trying to fit in the new characters and say it is ‘Toy Story.’”
“I am actually excited to see new characters,” said Brain Falder, a senior studying mechanical engineering. “It was surprising to hear that there will be different ‘main characters’ in this next ‘Toy Story’ movie but I am interested to see how the story line will be with introducing the new characters. I am also interested to see how they are going to fit in the old characters.”
Early this week, a report came out that “Toy Story 4” is being rewritten and edited so that fans and audiences can expect a whole different story when it is released in June 2019.
