While Toy Story 3 is seen by many fans as the perfect conclusion to the story of Woody, Buzz and the gang, it seems there’s still plenty of excitement for the fourth installment in the beloved Disney-Pixar series, as Box Office Pro is reporting that Toy Story 4 is tracking a rather healthy domestic opening weekend of between $105 million and $130 million.
Should it reach the top end of that range, Toy Story 4 would surpass its 2010 predecessor’s franchise record opening weekend of $110 million, although it would fall short of Finding Dory’s $135 million and Pixar’s record opener Incredibles 2, which debuted to $182.7 million last year.
It’s worth noting that these are just early tracking estimates, and will likely change as the marketing campaign continues and early reactions and reviews hit ahead of the film’s June 21st release.
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 is set for release on June 21st and features a voice cast that includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Joan Cusack, Blake Clark, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Estelle Harris, Jodi Benson, Michael Keaton, Jeff Pidgeon, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Lori Alan, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Don Rickles, and Keanu Reeves.
