When Toy Story 4 Opens In JUNE 2019, you will be amazed, amused, enamored with an interesting character ensemble, including a New FORKY Character!
Who is FORKY?
An actual spork-turned-craft-project, Forky is pretty sure that he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip.
Director Josh Cooley has his own perspective on the story development. Storytelling is the KING in the world of Disney and Pixar!
The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose. A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.
TOY STORY 4 Opens JUNE 21, 2019
Filmmakers called on comedian Tony Hale to provide the voice of Forky.
It’s a huge thrill to be part of the Toy Story family. But it’s going to take a while for it to really sink in. – Tony Hale

Director Josh Cooley about Forky.
When we thought up this character, Tony was the first actor that came to mind and I’m thrilled he accepted. Tony’s performance as Forky is a comedy salad of confidence, confusion, and empathy… served by hilarious spork.
How were filmmakers able to convince Hale to give voice to Forky?
A utensil’s existential crisis? I’m in! – Tony Hale
