How Much Toy Story 4 Made Me Nostalgic About My Childhood

NEW FRIEND! – In Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” Bonnie makes a new friend in kindergarten orientation—literally. When Forky—Bonnie’s craft-project-turned-toy—declares himself trash and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. Featuring the voices of Tony Hale and Tom Hanks as Forky and Woody, “Toy Story 4” opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019. ©2019 Dinsey/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

When my parents took me to watch the first Toy Story movie, it was the best day of my life. Today I am a grown-up, and the hustle of life keeps me so. As the music of Randy Newman played loud, I got so excited that I time-travelled to that day again. Watching Buzz, Woody, Mr and Mrs Potato head, Slinky dog and all others was a delight, and they genuinely maintained the charm even with the 4th movie. 

Growing up, Andy reminded me a lot of myself how I was always carrying and playing with my toys, lost in my own little world. Trying to be a little director making short movies with my toys and anything else could get my hands on. I even have made bunkers out of soap bars with action figures manning the bunkers. I got the idea from none other than Sheriff Woody himself.

Bonnie I think is a great successor of Andy. The way she takes care of her toys and how they love them back, I want my daughter to have a childhood like Bonnie. The first day of Bonnie’s school made me emotional. I could relate to her so much, the fear of change and a new life. Being away from all my comfortable things and trying to be friends with new people. Some of them were mean, and some of them were so nice that I knew it would be alright in the long run.

The trip and all the rides made me feel like I was in an adventurous videogame, thrill at every step in the way. Toy story 4 is a movie to watch with your family and especially with your children. I would give it 4/5 stars.
