Toy Story 4 fans are obsessed with Forky in the new trailer
20 March 2019, 13:03
After the new Toy Story trailer dropped, fans are relating to an anxious spork in the middle of an existential crisis.
The trailer for Toy Story 4 dropped this week and fans revisited their favourite childhood characters in the first full look at the upcoming film. Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep and Jessie are all back for another adventure but it's new character Forky that has fans in their feelings.
Who plays Forky in Toy Story 4?
Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep) voices Forky, a spork in the new film who is seemingly in the midst of an identity crisis.
Forky is a DIY toy created by Bonnie at school. Because of this, Forky doesn't feel that he is truly a toy and so he makes a break for it, only to be tailed by Woody.
Fans reacted to Forky and found the toy-in-crisis to be highly relatable.

If FORKY isn't a perfect and cartoonish expression of when depression and anxiety clash, I don't know what is. pic.twitter.com/l1PI9aLkIg— Mallory Yu (@mallory_yu) March 19, 2019

Fans are feeling seen after Forky's "why am I alive" and "I was made for soup, salad, maybe chilli, and then the trash" lines in the trailer.
People decided to stan Forky fairly quickly.

Fortune Teller- "In twenty years you will cry about a spork named Forky."
Me- "Yeah... ok."
Forky has given fans a lot to consider ahead of Toy Story 4's June 21 premiere date. Audiences everywhere feel seen by that nervous little spork and it's a mood. In conclusion, we have decided to stan.
