The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Not only is this (al­legedly) fi­nal film in the an­i­mated Dis­ney-Pixar se­ries as ef­fec­tive as its fore­run­ners, it might leave you an emo­tional wreck. Its main theme ex­plores what hap­pens when your time sup­pos­edly is up ... which is the dilemma of cow­boy Woody (again voiced by Tom Hanks), whose new owner is less in­ter­ested in him than in a makeshift doll she has fash­ioned from a spork. It has the voice of “Veep’s” Tony Hale, and it’s seen by Woody as his av­enue to be­come use­ful and wanted again, giv­ing the film the means to yield the fran­chise’s tra­di­tional mix of clever vi­su­als and heart­tug­ging char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment. Of course, Tim Allen also is back as the voice of Buzz Lightyear, and An­nie Potts gets spe­cial ku­dos as she reprises the part of Bo Peep. No­table among cast new­com­ers is Keanu Reeves as a mo­tor­cy­cle-dare­devil toy, and there’s a wel­come re­union of Kee­gan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, If in voice only.
