TOY STORY 4
2019, Walt Disney Studios, 100 min, USA, Dir: Josh Cooley

Nine years after the satisfying end of the third installment, Josh Cooley directs this triumphant return to the internationally beloved TOY STORY series of films. The story begins when Woody, who is still taking care of Bonnie, meets her beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale). After the new member of the toy collection 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.


THE INCREDIBLES
2004, Walt Disney Pictures, 115 min, USA, Dir: Brad Bird

“THE INCREDIBLES was everything that computer-generated animation had trouble doing,” noted writer-director Brad Bird of the challenges the action-adventure represented to his team at Pixar – but the end result was a blockbuster hit that earned Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Sound Editing. Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter provide the voices of Bob and Helen Parr, who live quietly with their kids in a Metroville surburb, until the arrival of the nefarious Syndrome (Jason Lee) prompts the Parrs to return to their previous identities as superheroes. Like the film’s visual design, Michael Giacchino’s retro-futuristic score has the feel of 1960s spy movies and comic books while remaining contemporary.
