Toy Story 4 Blu-ray Review & Giveaway


Packed with old friends and new faces, the fourth film in the beloved Toy Story series, which leads Woody to an unexpected fork in the road, arrives home on Digital in 4K Ultra HD™ and HD Oct. 1, and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray,™ DVD Oct. 8. In “Toy Story 4,” Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) 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. So, when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy Forky (voice of Tony Hale) calls himself “trash,” Woody decides to teach Forky how to embrace being a toy. But a road-trip adventure, including an unexpected reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts), shows Woody how big the world can be for a toy. In addition, carnival prizes Ducky (voice of Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (voice of Jordan Peele) bring a new level of fun to the film.



MY REVIEW

You've Got A Friend In Me! Toy Story has been a favourite of mine since...well since I was a kid. When we got the opportunity to review Toy Story 4 I had to look up when the original movie came out, 1995! It's crazy to think that Woody and his friends have been in my life, for most of my life and I'm so happy that my kids love the Toy Story movies just as much as I do. 

When we last saw Woody and the gang, they were being passed off to a new child, Bonnie, while Andy went on to the next chapter in his life, college. Well, when we open up to Toy Story 4 we're taken back a few years to show that Woody had a love interest, Bo Peep. As it turns out, Bo and her sheep are given to a new family and they don't see each other again for years.

As we're brought back to the present we're in the home of Bonnie and the gang is still all together. The new mission to Woody is to make sure that Bonnie is okay as she is about to start school. While at the school's orientation, Bonnie creates a new toy for herself out of some previously trashed craft supplies and names him Forky. Woody is on a mission to make sure that Forky is there for Bonnie when she needs him because he keeps trying to run back to the trash.

While on a road-trip Bonnie and her family are taking before the school year starts, Woody is trying his hardest to make sure that Forky is the best toy for Bonnie and as Forky is still a bit new to this responsibilities as one of Bonnie's toys, he ends up sneaking out of the family's RV and Woody goes after him. As they make their way back to the next rest stop, Woody notices an old Antique shop where he sees the lamp that was part of Bo Peep and he goes in to look for her.

As they're reunited, Woody learns that Bo Peep is a toy without a child, but is loving her life as a free toy. Throughout the mission to get back to Bonnie before they leave the rest stop, you can tell Woody will be facing a hard decision, live the life of a toy that barely gets played with or become a toy without a child.

I honestly was nervous to watch Toy Story 4 because I didn't know how it would end, but I have to say I absolutely loved it. I laughed and I teared up a few times because honestly all of the movies have been about Woody being a selfless toy. He always puts his child's needs first and makes sure that they're happy. It ended perfect and I'm so excited to partner up with Disney Canada to offer one of our Canadian readers a chance to win a copy of Toy Story 4! All you need to do is leave a comment below sharing who your favourite character from Toy Story is!

  1. I've always liked Woody and my son loved Buzz. I had the movie on VHS and we watched it so much until it eventually wore out. We knew that movie inside and out and found that I'd recite Woody's lines and he would do Buzz. LOL Now I have a grandson and would love him to watch this and fall in love with the story and characters as much as I did with my son.
