Disney and Pixar fans can revisit the beloved group of characters in this new Super Bowl sneak peek for the highly-anticipated sequel Toy Story 4.
Toy Story 3, which hit theaters in 2010, was a perfect send-off for the beloved cast of characters that left audiences and critics alike crying in the theaters with its emotional conclusion. The Disney/Pixar threequel is also one of the very few animated films to be nominated for Best Motion Picture of the Year at the Academy Awards, much like fellow Disney films Beauty and the Beast and Up. Now, Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the gang are back for more adventures in this year’s Toy Story 4.
After this year’s Super Bowl game, Disney and Pixar gave fans a new look at Toy Story 4, which will feature classic characters from the franchise as well as new additions to the eclectic cast of misfit toys. Fans can check out the exciting new footage in the Toy Story 4 Super Bowl spot below.
Toy Story 4 is the first full-length addition to the franchise since Toy Story 3 but it’s not the first time the characters have returned since then. After the release of Toy Story 3, the beloved cast of characters returned in short films such as Toy Story of Terror and Toy Story That Time Forgot, as well as the Toy Story Toons series including Hawaiin Vacation, Small Fry, and Partysaurus Rex.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Toy Story 4 as soon as more information becomes available. What’s your opinion on the Super Bowl spot for Disney and Pixar’s latest sequel?

Here’s Toy Story 4‘s 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. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky, declares himself as ‘trash’ and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep. After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.”
Directed by Josh Cooley, Toy Story 4 features vocal talent from Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Estelle Harris, Annie Potts, Joan Cusack, Blake Clark, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Jodi Benson, Michael Keaton, Jeff Pidgeon, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Laurie Metcalf, Lori Alan, Keanu Reeves, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Patricia Arquette.
Toy Story 4 will arrive in theaters on June 21, 2019.
What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
