“Fourth time’s the charm,” said no one ever. The trailer for Toy Story 4 just hit the internet and everyone is abuzz, so to speak. But in answer to the question in the headline of this article, “Do We Really Need Another Toy Story Movie Led by Two White Male Toys?” Well, the answer is, sure, it’s fine. The first three Toy Story movies featured Buzz and Woody, so we’re cool with it. And there are plenty of other toys like ones based on potatoes and extinct dinosaurs. I mean, we don’t have a problem with it, but what does the social media platform Twitter think about this since the current news cycles is driven by whatever is trending on Twitter? We predict that by the end of the week other news outlets and prominent Twitter accounts will be asking this very question far more seriously than we have. And we’re certain that there will be intense speculation about new character “Fork” or “Spork” as the, um, this newcomer toy grapples with coming to terms with being a toy rather than a utensil. (However, it’s interesting to note that science concludes that most toys are genderless as they have no genitals.) Read into that what you will. And as a reminder, this is a movie for kids.
Let the internet debate begin! And feel free to comment below.
