Early Monday, just as those unfortunate enough to have missed Camp Flog Gnaw in person were busy catching up with tweeted clips, Disney and Pixar quelled that pain by dropping a new teaser for Toy Story 4. There's not much revealed here in terms of plot. However, this early glimpse does introduce a new character named Forky.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly Monday, director Josh Cooley detailed the existential quandary at the center of the new Tony Hale-voiced character's story. "A toy's purpose is to be there for its child," he said. "But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he's facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him."

Disney and Pixar also unloaded a new poster for the first new Toy Story entry in nine years, due June 21.
Earlier this year, Pixar released Brad Bird's Incredibles 2. Just under a year ago, they came through with one of their strongest entries ever, Coco. Sadly, we've yet to get a WALL-E sequel.
