TOY STORY 4 in THEATERS, Friday, June 21st!
Sing it with me:
“ You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles from your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you've got a friend in me
Yeah, you've got a friend in me…”
Thank you, Disney, for inviting me to the premiere of TOY STORY 4! What an unbelievable night, filled with stars and celebration of one of the most successful movie franchises. Our night began standing on the red carpet and watching the most talented actors and actresses greeting us. Take a peek at our night here and here. The highlight of the evening, Keanu Reeves signed my little ones Woody Jacket! OMG, I was over the moon, P is a little young to understand the significance of this, but you bet I will be framing this jacket for him for when he’s older. Next up, we prescreened TOY STORY 4, take your tissue, the ending had me choked up.
TOY STORY one came out in 1995, I had just graduated and I remember exactly where I saw it, Santa Barbara theater with a group of my friends. We left the theater swearing that we’d be friends forever and so far, knock on wood, we still are. A movie about friendship, love, acceptance and believing that there's magic in the world is the running theme in all the TOY STORY movies. TOY STORY 2 came out 1992, TOY STORY 3, 2010 and TOY STORY 4, out now! The movie is truly priceless when you watch it with your little one take a moment and look at their faces, you’ll see pure joy when they toys come to life, ask them later if they think their toys come to life. I asked my kiddo that question and his answer was no, but he did say, “my toys always want me to play with them so they're not lonely and I will keep my toys forever and ever.” A child's innocence is the purest form of happiness and TOY STORY will have your kiddo elated. Now if you're thinking this is a kids movie, stop right there, you'll be laughing along and get a kick out of the one-liners.
My favorite TOY STORY movies ranked:
TOY STORY 4 TOY STORY 1 TOY STORY 3 TOY STORY 2
Let me know where TOY STORY 4 ranks for you. Heads up, throughout the movie I laughed so much that Pepsi went up my nose, but the ending, left me feeling a little blue but happy. Nothing bad happens, don’t worry, it’s just that the baton gets passed on and I wasn’t ready for that. That’s all I’ll say, I don’t want to spoil it for you and don’t forget: “You've got a friend in me You've got a friend in me You've got troubles, and I've got 'em too There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you We stick together and we see it through 'Cause you've got a friend in me You've got a friend in me...”
