The world was #blessed on Monday morning with the first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4. Now, you may have been wary about this film– the Toy Story trilogy ended perfectly, you say. And you would be right! But Toy Story 4 has already set itself apart with the introduction of a new character– a hero to rival Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and more.
His name, everyone, is Forky.
Toy Story 4 ‘s new character Forky, who is basically all of us.
Voiced by Tony Hale, Forky is a toy made by Bonnie, the young girl who inherited Andy ‘s toys at the end of Toy Story 3. His unusual creation leaves Forky a bit on edge. According to director Josh Cooley, he now has to balance his old purpose as a spork with his new purpose as a toy– a crisis we can all relate to.
Since Forky is our new fav, here are the best Tweets about his debut.
1. Forky is rocking a not so accurate name.
still trying to figure out why there's a new Toy Story character made out of a spork, but Bonnie named him Forky, not Sporky pic.twitter.com/obAJc6AGB7

And there seems to be no sign of intelligent toy naming anywhere…
2. Also, Forky ‘s existence raises a lot of questions.
“Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he ‘s facing a crisis.” Was Forky “alive” before Bonnie “made” him into a toy? Does he lose sentience if he chooses an existence as a spork rather than that of a toy? Will this be the most troubling Toy Story yet?

Is Forky real? Is Toy Story 4 real?? Are any of us real???
3. Seriously, this plot is kind of messed up.
THE FORK IN TOY STORY 4 IMPLIES ANY OBJECT CAN BE GRANTED SENTIENCE AT ANY TIME IF IT SUITS THE DARK IMAGININGS AND WILL OF A BRUTAL TODDLER-GOD

Even Sid is shook.
4. There ‘s a lot to unpack.
In Toy Story 4, Forky is brought into existence against his will, having being animated by circumstances beyond his control. In this paper, we will contrast Forky's experiences to the writings of Nietzsche, Camus, and Satre in order to

Forky thinks, therefore he is.
5. Forky is here to liberate us all.
Toy Story 1-3: Embrace capitalism, for the deepest love is to be had with objects of consumption.
Toy Story 4: Dismantle capitalism. Return to the folk objects of early humans. Forky is not a toy, but a tool with which to overthrow the manufacturers who have led us astray.

Seize the means of toy production!
6. Is Forky actually a Pixar Easter Egg?

But where does that put Toy Story 4 in the Pixar timeline…
7. Forky is the new hottest toy of the season.
DISNEY SHAREHOLDERS: okay how are you guys gonna top Toy Story 3!?

This is a true Forky stan zone only.

One might say he ‘s a creep. Or a weirdo. One might even wonder what the hell he ‘s doing here. But we know.
11. And we are all Forky.
