Is Woody bisexual in Toy Story 4? Let's find out...

Lately, fans have been asking: Is Woody bisexual in Toy Story 4? Pixar is certainly no stranger to diversity, inclusion and representation, so it's certainly a worthwhile question to ask. 

The first film - 1995's Toy Story - was the animation studio's first feature film, and since then the films have gone down in history as family favourites. In fact, shortly after the release of the third instalment in 2010, many were dubbing the Toy Story trilogy as one of the greatest of all time. However, when Friday, June 21st rolls around, it will no longer be a trilogy. 

It's easily one of the most anticipated movie events of 2019. So, what's in store for eager audiences?

What is Toy Story 4 about?

It looks like the fourth entry in the series will explore themes of finding oneself and personal discovery. 

When Bonnie's new toy - Forky (Tony Hale) - is introduced to the gang, the tight-knit group of friends swear to protect him. However, during a road trip, his safety is thrown into question, along with the gang's knowledge of the wider world. 

Fans are expecting an inspirational and moving portrait of friendship - and a few tears, of course. These aren't kids movies, they're family movies, so it's no surprise that they sometimes deal with more mature themes. Could sexuality be the next step up?

Is Woody bisexual in Toy Story 4?

NPC reports a tweet from Disney confirming Woody's sexuality - however, it's perhaps best to pay no notice...

It appears to be a hoax and there is no reason to believe that Woody is bisexual in Toy Story 4; no official information from Disney has referenced such subject matter. 

So, it looks like the smoke has no fire - what we have here is a prank of sorts. It's interesting to see how many believed it though; are there shades?

Tom Hanks has his say

As reported by ScreenRant, Woody's voice actor - Tom Hanks - began to discuss the future of Woody's love life. 

While he doesn't exactly address the character's sexuality, he expresses Woody's certainty regarding his true love:

There you have it; Bo Peep has always been the one for Woody, and he's known it from the very start. 

How sweet!

In case you somehow didn't already know, Toy Story 4 hit cinemas on June 21st, 2019.
