Toy Story 4 Review - 3 Stars

"Toy Story 4" combines animation, story and a beloved Tom Hanks character for a family friendly G-rated summer blockbuster. Rated "G," 3 Stars.
"Toy Story 4" returns with all of the elements that make this series charming. In the fourth episode, Andy (the original kid) hands his toys down to Bonnie, a new kid for the Toy Story gang to please. As Woody, Tom Hanks carries the movie, making sure all remains well in his new owner's world. Bonnie creates a new friend "Forky" (voiced by the hilarious Tony Hale) from glue, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, and a plastic spork. Woody and the gang's adventure involves keeping "Forky" safe, as the family vacations in a rented RV.  The toy chases and adventures feel a little familiar: However, a visit to an antique store and a talking doll voiced by Christine Hendricks delights. "Toy Story 4" ends with a funny credit sequence. After 25 years, it's more of the same; but it ain't broke, and doesn't need fixing.
