Development

"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."

Andy definitely needed a facelift, though I don't think it needed to be to the point of where he became barely recognizable from the original. He looks too stylized, which is bad when you consider that the toys are the ones that should appear that way the most.

Not a fan of Bo's face either. I liked how the original's lack of facial detail helped remind you that she's supposed to be a stylized toy. Now she looks like your generic Disney™ princess.

Overall, these are just nitpicks. Still a firm believer that this franchise should've just ended at 3, but at least the environments are pretty and the premise looks kinda neat.
