Yesterday, Pixar unleashed the very first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4, a film which (according to its cast members) has apparently been designed from the ground up to be as emotionally devastating as possible. That teaser was pretty fun, and introduced a brand-new character by the name of Forky, which the internet promptly memed into oblivion.
Quite unexpectedly, today brings a second teaser trailer, one which reveals two more Toy Story 4 characters: Ducky and Bunny - voiced by the great Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele, respectively. It's an odd little thing, but entertaining as all hell.
Take a look!
So, obviously, this teaser's riffing on Key & Peele's immortal "Valets" sketch, with Ducky and Bunny discussing Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear and Woody in the same deliriously excited manner they once employed while singing the praises of Liam Neesons. Prett neat!
For those who remain unaware, here's Toy Story 4's official plot synopsis:
"Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy."
So, Toy Story 4's a road trip comedy, and we're guessing Ducky and Bunny are two toys our heroes will meet along the way? Sounds good to us. How they'll tie in to Toy Story 4's inevitably soul-crushing climax is anyone's guess, but we look forward to finding out.
Toy Story 4 opens on June 12th, 2019. You gonna show up for it or what?
