Bright and early this morning, the final trailer for Toy Story 4 dropped, and the 2:17 trailer showcases just how different Woody’s life is now. Watch the trailer below, chat about it with other Pixar fans in the Pixar Post Forum, and then let us know your thoughts tonight as we hold a YouTube Live discussion (details below).
Featuring the music of Electric Light Orchestra’s “Livin’ Thing” is mirrors the feeling of Woody’s journey as Jeff Lynne (ELO’s vocalist) says, “It’s a livin’ thing — It’s a terrible thing to lose.” It’s almost as if Woody is mirroring the lyric and is hanging on tight to what he felt living was, but it’s changing for him and he’s losing it.
That’s not to say that the trailer was completely heavy — there were also some great moments of humor as well. How hilarious was it when Forky says, “Woody will save me! I’ve known that guy my whole life — two days!” Or, when Ducky and Bunny perform their signature “plush rush” to get the key from the antique store owner.
