Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 ★★★★

I had been avoiding this movie due to my deep love of the franchise and my fear that this fourth installment would ruin it, and I was so wrong. Yes I very well could have left off at Toy Story 3 and had quite a happy conclusion to the series, but this final movie gives it that bittersweet oomph that Pixar is so well known for. The Forky storyline had seemed gimmicky and put me off when I first saw the trailer for this, but now having watched I can recognize the depth that was added by introducing a toy-that’s-not-a-toy, showing that anything you love and put life into can have meaning regardless of perceived value. This is it though, all conceivable loose ends have been wrapped up and there is absolutely no more room for another story. I can say that I am more than satisfied with this movie, but anything more would be a mere violation, we managed to get three amazing sequels and to try for another would be a massive risk. Thank you Pixar for this beautiful wrap-up, but please let the characters of Toy Story rest.
