*It’s a whole new world for “Toy Story 4,” directed by Josh Cooley. Its color palette has changed somewhat and some fierce females are part of the storyline.

Giggle McDimples (Ally Maki), a miniature plastic doll is Bo Beep’s ((Annie Potts) confidant, supporter and adviser. She spends a lot of time time  perched on Bo’s shoulder.

In addition, which came first, the motorcycle slice and dice rider John Wick (Keanu Reeves) or famed toy cyclist Duke Caboom Reeves play in “Toy Story 4”?

The main character driving the latest edition of the Pixar/Disney “Toy Story” franchise is Forky (Tony Hale). Forky was created by Bonnie (Madeleine McGraw), Woody’s (Tom Hanks) new handler. Keegan-Michael Key (Ducky) and Jordan Peele (Bunny) are back together again [they were in the TV series “Key and Peele”], but this time as playthings in “Toy Story 4.” And then there is the colorful Giggle McDimples (Ally Maki), and ominous Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks).

The regular assortment of toys are back, including Buzz Lighyear (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato head (Don Rickles), Mrs. Potato Head (Estelle Harris), Jessie (Joan Cusack), and the feisty, enigmatic Bo Peep , who has been gone for quite some time. Sparks fly when Woody and long-lost friend Bo Peep meet again, indicating there was more to their relationship than what meets the eye.

Woody’s priority has always been taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky 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 is filled with suspense, humor, and emotion
