Woody and his toy friends have found a new home with little Bonnie. When Bonnie makes a new toy with Forky in the nursery and immediately closes the converted plastic fork in her child's heart, the dear cowboy realizes that the times when he was so popular to play with are slowly but surely over. When Forky, who is absolutely convinced that he is not a toy but garbage, is lost on a trip, Woody does everything to save the new roommate - of course with the support of Buzz Lightyear and Co. For the friends an exciting adventure begins, on which they meet new companions and old acquaintances - and at the end nothing will ever be the same again as it once was…
24 years ago the first completely at the computer animated film came with "Toy Story" into the cinemas. With part 3 released in 2010, the story seemed to be perfectly finished. There was a definite end, with a new beginning. There is no better way to tell the story of Woody, Buzz and the other lovely toys to the end. Didn't I? "A Toy Story: Alles hört auf kein Kommando" is a real surprise in this respect. Because this fourth part is the perfect finish that you didn't know you needed. Yes, of course all the films in this series have a similar structure, but this time the makers manage again to steer the whole thing in a surprising direction that leads to an almost perfect finale.
The ideas didn't run out of creative minds. Forky's the best example of that. How a simple plastic fork was turned into an incredibly adorable and weird character is simply ingenious. And also the way in which the sometimes quite gruesome events are dissolved in an antiquarian bookshop speaks for the great talent of the makers. They always manage, against their odds, to get the audience to laugh at tears, only to turn them into unexpected tears of emotion...
But the best way for them to capture what it means to be a child. And not only children can identify with this, but also all adults who have kept a piece of their own childhood in their hearts. That's why humour is always deliberately interspersed, which actually only the older students can laugh about, whereas for the little ones there are many child-friendly - but never flat - gags. "A Toy Story: Alles hört auf kein Kommando" is a family film in the best sense of the word, whereby a few scenes could be a bit too scary for very young children.
Naturally, the "Toy Story" universe could be expanded even further. And due to the unbroken popularity of the series, it is not unlikely that there will be more films in the future that focus on other toys. The story of Woody, however, is really perfectly finished with this part. And that's why in "A Toy Story: Alles hört auf kein Kommando" one can speak of a worthy and wonderful ending that presses all the right keys on the emotional keyboard of young and old. A wonderful film for which there is only one possible conclusion: Absolutely worth seeing!!!
