We’ve got a fantastically fun new TV spot to share with you today for Toy Story 4. This one puts the spotlight on a new character named Duke Caboom, who is played by Keanu Reeves.
Duke Caboom is a vintage Canadian daredevil toy from the 60s that is reminiscent of legendary real-life daredevil Evel Knievel. Part of the trailer is a retro commercial for the character and then the rest of it features Duke showing off for Woody and Bo Peep.
I love the way that Reeves plays the character, and as you’ll see, it seems like he might be very insecure about himself, and he’s trying to hide that insecurity. Check out the trailer.
This next chapter of the story sees Buzz (Tim Allen), Woody (Tom Hanks), and the rest of the toy gang embark on a new life-changing adventure as Bonnie brings her toys on a family vacation road trip.
The toys are introduced to a homemade toy named Forky, who has some issues, and they all witness a whole new world as they arrive at a carnival. Then Woody ends up in an antique store where he runs across Bo Peep (Annie Potts), who has managed to do very well for herself. Woody is eventually faced with a difficult decision as he has to decide to return to Bonnie or stay with Bo Peep.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
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.
Toy Story 4 also stars Patricia Arquette, Joan Cusack, Keanu Reeves, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jordan Peele. It was directed by Josh Cooley (Riley’s First Date) and hits theaters on June 21st, 2019.
