The teaser trailer for Pixar's Toy Story 4 dropped Monday, hinting at a turbulent relationship between our heroes and reluctant new toy Forky.

Our old heroes are happily living with Bonnie after Andy passed them onto her at the end of Toy Story 3, but Forky (played by Tony Hale of Arrested Development) is a spork-turned-craft-project who doesn't identify as a toy at all, so he'd prefer not to go on any adventures.

"A utensil's existential crisis?" said Hale of the role. "I'm in!"


Woody, Buzz, Jessie and new toy Forky appear in the trailer.


Director Josh Cooley admitted that 2010's threequel seemed like the final chapter.


We also saw a new Woody character poster Monday.


"And it was the end of Woody's story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning," he said in a release Monday. "Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring."

Earlier this month, Tom Hanks (who's played Woody since the 1995 original) hinted that the fourth movie's ending "is a moment in history."

The trailer will make its big screen debut with Ralph Breaks the Internet, in theaters Nov. 21, while Toy Story 4 is set to release on June 20, 2019 in Australia and June 21, 2019 in the US and UK.

It's also set to be among the first new movies on the Disney+ streaming service, scheduled to arrive in 2019.

In case you're wondering, the song in the trailer is July Collins' version of Both Sides Now, written by Joni Mitchell in 1967.
