New TOY STORY 4 Teaser Introduces Keanu Reeves’ Duke Caboom
When you get right down to it, there are plenty of reasons to see Pixar's Toy Story 4 - the opportunity to revisit with some of your favorite characters; the never-less-than-impressive animation work being done by the folks at Pixar Studios; the chance to find out if making another Toy Story after Toy Story 3 (which brought the trilogy to a pitch-perfect ending) was really a good idea. All of these are perfectly valid reasons for seeing Toy Story 4.
But there's also this: Toy Story 4 has a character named Duke Caboom, and he's voiced by Keanu Reeves.
The above TV spot offers us our first look at Duke Caboom ("The Canuck with all the luck") in action, and it's interesting to hear Reeves putting on a voice for the role. You go to Keanu Reeves and you say, "Look, we need you to play a Canadian daredevil, possibly in the vein of Super Dave Osborne, and he's a toy", and this is the voice Reeves decided to assign to that character. There is never a dull moment in Keanu Reeves World.
Anyway, Toy Story 4 continues to look fun and we'll definitely see it when it hits theaters on June 20th. How about you folks?
