Andy’s got a whole new look in the Toy Story 4 trailer, prompting jokes and theories from fans about the reasons behind his transformed face.
The trailer for the movie – which comes nine years after the last instalment in the franchise – appears to offer us a glimpse at Andy, the kid who owns the iconic toy Woody and his friends. But his face shape, colouring and teeth seem to have changed quite dramatically…

In the closing scenes of Toy Story 3, Andy outgrew his toys and gave them away to a younger child, Bonnie, before heading off to college. However, Bonnie doesn’t look too much older in the new trailer than she was back then, so Andy can’t be old enough to have had a young son of his own yet. It therefore seems as if we must be looking at a flashback of Andy rendered in 2019 Pixar style – or a new kid entirely.
Either way, we do know that Toy Story 4 sees the toys embark on an adventure that begins in Bonnie’s room and introduces a new character, Forky — a spork who’s been made into a toy and is having an existential crisis about it.
The trailer reveals that once Forky escapes, Woody follows him to persuade him to turn back and stumbles upon an antiques shop where he discovers that Bo Peep has been living among lost toys.
