Toy Story 4 premiered in Hollywood on June 11, 2019, and will be coming out in theaters on June 21, 2019 in the United States. It is the sequel to Toy Story 3 which came out in 2010. Like all of the movies in the Toy Story franchise, the main character, Sheriff Woody, is played by Tom Hanks. It is rumored that this will be the last film in the series.
This installment takes place a few years after the events of Toy Story 3, and Woody and the rest of the toys are now living with a child named Bonnie. Bonnie makes a new toy out of a spork who is named Forky. Unfortunately, Forky has an existential crisis about being a toy and decides to escape. When Woody goes to save him, he becomes separated from the group, and the adventure begins.
Toy Story 4 is dedicated to actor and comedian, Don Rickles, who passed away in 2017, and animator, Adam Burke, who passed away in 2018. Don Rickles played Mr. Potato Head in the first three films in this series. Don Rickles was supposed to appear in Toy Story 4, but he passed on before any lines could be recorded. Even so, his family pleaded with Pixar to find a way to include him in the film. It turned out that there was enough archival material from 25 years of the Toy Story franchise to piece together his character for this film.
Pre-sales began on May 28, 2019, and Toy Story 4 has already set records on Fandango for the most tickets sold for an animated film. According to Atom Tickets, Toy Story 4 has sold 50% more than the previous three highest-selling animated films combined. It is projected that this movie will earn $180-200 million in its opening weekend.
Critical response has been overwhelmingly positive. This movie currently holds an aggregate score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Will Toy Story 4 be coming to Netflix in the U.S.?
Toy Story 4 is being distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, and so, it will not be coming to Netflix in the U.S.
While new Disney films used to go to Netflix when they were finished in the theaters, they do not anymore. Disney is planning on launching its own streaming service, Disney+, and because of this, it will be keeping its current and future content for that service. The new service will be $6.99 per month or $69 per year.
Will Toy Story 4 be coming to Netflix in other regions?
There is a slim possibility that Toy Story 4 may be coming to Netflix in other regions. While the contract between Disney and Netflix expired in the United States, the situation internationally is a bit more complicated. It is rumored that Disney+ will arrive in Asia near the end of 2019 and in Europe in 2020. On the other hand, Disney is having some trouble re-acquiring its rights to content internationally. So, depending on how the contract negotiations go, viewers in some regions other than the United States may be able to see Toy Story 4 on Netflix.
Are the other Toy Story films available for streaming anywhere?
If you want to catch up on the Toy Story storyline, will you be able to on any of the streaming services?
