The joys of Toy Story will continue next summer, complete with the relatable BFF vibes of Woody and Buzz.

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.
