Your favourite toys are back

Woody and all of Andy's ex-toys are happy in their new life with Bonnie and being friends with all of Bonnie's toys. During summer, Bonnie goes to kindergarten for the first time before school term starts. Despite her parents saying she cannot take a toy with her, Woody sneaks into Bonnie's backpack. At the school, Bonnie gets shy around her new classmates. Taking a spork - half spoon, half fork - and some other things from a nearby trash bin, he puts them on Bonnie's table before returning to her backpack. She turns the spork and other pieces into a handmade toy that she names Forky. After Bonnie puts Forky in her backpack, he comes to life, much to Woody's susprise.

After Woody introduces Forky to the rest of Bonnie's toys, Forky begins going through a crisis, believing that he was made to be trash since he's made out of trash material and keeps trying to throw himself away, but Woody and his friends keep pulling him out of the bin. Soon, Bonnie, her parents, and all of the toys go on a roadtrip since Bonnie doesn't start school for one more week. During the trip, Forky jumps out of the window since he still believes he's trash, forcing Woody to go out and get him while the other toys try to cover for him. Woody finds Forky and convinces him of the joys of being a toy.

Along the way, all the old Toy Story gang meet up for the adventure. But can they really convince Forky that's he's good enough to be a real toy? Find out when Toy Story 4 opens in cinemas on Thursday June 20.
