Chutes and ladders! Forky comes to life in a new TV spot titled, “Making a New Friend,” as we bear witness to what appears to be Forky’s first breath. In previously released trailers and clips, we saw Bonnie create Forky at school — the filmmakers created such warmth and magic within that particular scene, that the follow-up moment in Bonnie’s dimly lit backpack draws a stark contrast with an uncanny horror-like hilarity of Forky coming to life.
Check out the new TV spot embedded below.
Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) 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 (voice of Tony Hale), 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 (voice of Annie Potts). 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.
