Right now it sounds like a good idea to start planning on buying tickets for this film. The press is reporting that it has broken the record previously held by Incredibles II for the first-day pre-sales for an animated title on Fandango.

Toy Story 4 bests the Incredibles 2 ticket pre-sale record

Just read the Toy Story 4 tie-in graphic novel...a note of caution for anyone picking it up, it takes place directly after the movie. Only read it once you've seen it.

So uh...I just realized something.

Has Little Bo Peep lost her sheep and doesn't know where to find them??? Is that an aspect of her plot?

Well that was disappointing. Didn't like the direction they took this one at all. Felt unnecessary and they should have honestly left it at 3. Felt like a gut punch to the 5 year old in me who would always watch and rewind and watch the first Toy Story over and over again.

I know that plenty of people feel that this movie had no reason to exist after the beautiful ending the third movie had. Trust me I was clearly one of them. That being said:

Spoiler:
This movie had an ending that was just as lovely and touching. For a moment I thought it was going to be difficult for Woody to say goodbye to Bo Peep all over again, but this time he actually had to say goodbye to Buzz, Jessie and the whole gang so he could be with Bo. I thought this ending was even more difficult than when Ralph and to so goodbye to his best pal Vanellope in Ralph Breaks the Internet. Both were satisfying, but at least Ralph and Vanellope would still stay in touch and they would try spend time together despite one of them moving away. I don't know if Woody will ever see his closest friends ever again, but at least he's happy being with the one he loves. The scene where he and Bo embraced after he decided to stick with her just melted my heart. Woody also giving Jessie his sheriff star was very nice.

What I also liked about this movie is that it was very funny. I was laughing and having a great time while watching it and so were my friends. It was also smart to begin the film by showing the day Bo Peep left because that was what was missing in the third one.

You think Gabby-Gabby is really bad, but she's simply misunderstood. I'm glad that she found someone to love her. Harmony didn't seem like the right girl for her because she already had too many toys and she didn't seem someone who would take care of her. Earlier she found Woody in the store and when she took him out to play, she never wondered what happened to him.

One thing I do find puzzling about Bonnie's character in this film is that she loved Woody very much in the last film and she promised Andy that she would look after him, but she just suddenly forgot he even existed. She would throw him in her closet often and I think she didn't even remember him at all after she went back home with her parents.

I was one of the biggest supporters of another one after Toy Story 3 because I had faith in Pixar not just milking Toy Story for the sake of it, and while Toy Story 4 is definitely not the product of milking a franchise, I just didn't care for this direction. I can see what they were going for, the movie was very sad and I was enjoying the movie as I was watching because I just kept thinking, this is all gonna lead to something that justifies the movie's existence, and by the time the credits rolled, I was just so disappointed. I honestly don't get why they wanted to go here after Toy Story 3 and it just feels totally unnecessary.

Annie Potts was interviewed by Variety about Bo Peep's return. Warning there are spoilers in the article.

Well yes at least this one didn't feel like one of those completely unnecessary direct-to-video sequels that Disney would make, especially for their fairy tale films. However, there were fans who wanted a proper closure for Bo because she was a beloved character and for it to happen abruptly off-screen in the third one kind of stung for those fans. When my younger brother found out that all she had was a silent cameo in the third movie during a flashback, he said that it sucks they did that to her even though he really enjoyed Toy Story 3.

I took my brother to see the film today in IMAX. He loved it and the ending was just as beautiful as I remembered. If you haven't this movie yet, you will most likely feel very satisfied and why it has a great chance of winning the Oscar for Best Animated movie.

Also, here's how Tom Hanks felt about saying goodbye to Woody once he had finished recording for this film.

I went back to see it just one more time in theaters on Sunday. I know that I will probably view it multiple times on home video, but it was still worth seeing it on the big screen again. One of the reasons why I decided to go again was because I remember when Toy Story 3 was released at a time in my life when I was really starting to fully recover from something very bad I went though a year-and-a-half prior to seeing it. Lots of other good things did happen after that bad situation before I had seen that movie. I went on some great vacations, my sister got married and I went some amazing concerts and musicals. Plus, a lot of good TV shows and films were released from 2009-2010.

I'm feeling better after the depression I went through from late 2015 to early 2016. However, things at my job have gotten a little stressful at times over the past few years, especially from November 2017 to May 2018. It's just that I don't remember a movie that has made laugh and cry tears of joy in such a long time. It really is such a feel good movie and it making a positive impact on me helps me appreciate the good things that have actually happened to me and my family recently. I also love how evolved Bo has become over this series.
