Jun 21, 2019: New Toy Story movie introduces Forky

UNITED STATES - Toy Story 4 hits theaters more than 20 years after the smash original in the franchise. The tale reportedly revolves around the gang learning to accept Forky, a spork, while also figuring out what makes something a toy.

Many fans expected the franchise to end with the third installment, according to MovieWeb, but the studio decided that a fourth movie was needed to wrap everything up.

The gang has a new home and is apparently happy again, living with Bonnie. The arrival of Forky, a spork (a hybrid of spoon and fork), with pipe-cleaner arms, throws everything off balance as he doesn’t consider himself to be a toy. Tony Hale voices the character.

The familiar characters are back: Woody, voiced by Tom Hanks; Buzz Lightyear by Tim Allen; and Jessie by Joan Cusack. Their new friends are Ducky, voiced by Keegan-Michael Key, and Bunny by Jordan Peele. MovieWeb reports that Keanu Reeves will join the gang as a surprise mystery toy.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
