New details on Keanu Reeves’ Duke Caboom from Toy Story 4 revealed!
Disney invited ComingSoon.net to Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, California to screen Toy Story 4 scenes, including one with Keanu Reeve’s hilarious new character Duke Caboom! Check out the full description below, along with new images from the film and behind-the-scenes in our gallery!
Woody & Forky in the Antique Store
In this scene Woody has just convinced Forky that he’s Bonnie’s favorite toy and they want to head back to the RV park to reunite with her, but Woody spots an antique store where he spies Bo Peep’s lamp in the window. Inside the antique store they are both yelling “BO!”
“Can we go back to Bonnie now?” asks Forky. “I don’t see your friend.”
“Yeah, okay. She’s not in here. C’mon, let’s go,” Woody says, resignedly.
Suddenly, in a manner very similar to a horror movie, they see an old-fashioned baby doll named Gabby Gabby being pushed in a toy stroller by a ventriloquist dummy straight out of The Twilight Zone. His name is Benson… and there are three or four of them, maybe more. The dummies are her henchmen. Woody and Forky introduce themselves and say they’re heading back to their kid.
“Toys around here don’t have kids… are you two lost?” Gabby asks.
Woody says they’re looking for Bo Peep, and Gabby says she’ll take them to her. Benson puts them in the stroller and begins pushing them. The whole scene is creepy, but it is enhanced by the Ray Noble song “Midnight, the Stars and You” from The Shining. Gabby asks when Woody was made, and they reveal they were both made in the 50’s. Gabby is jealous of Woody’s voice box, because hers is all messed up. Clearly she’s angling to get it from him. A clock chimes as the store is about to open, and even though Woody says they have to go she is not going to let them.
“You can’t leave yet, you have what I need,” Gabby explains ominously.
Woody at the Playground with Bo
Woody escapes but unfortunately Forky is taken captive by the Benson dummies. We pick up with him and other toys in a sandbox at a playground near the campsite. He’s trying to get back to the antique store, but a busload of campers comes over and begins playing roughly with the toys that have been left there. Then Woody is reunited with Bo Peep and her sheep. Bo has changed a lot in the seven years since her days in the house. She’s much more a free spirit with more comfortable clothes. A remote control car disguised as a skunk is driven by the sheep and almost runs them over.
“You would not believe the things I’ve seen,” Bo tells Woody.
They’re introduced to Giggle McDimples, a miniature toy who lives inside a police badge that says “Pet Patrol.”
“You didn’t tell me he was a cop!” shouts Giggle. “Howdy Sheriff. Officer Giggle McDimples, I run Pet Patrol.”
They are also introduced to a few G.I. Joe-type figures named Combat Carl. Woody then explains that Forky has been kidnapped by Gabby.
“Bo, my kid really needs this toy,” Woody begs her. “Will you help me just for old time’s sake?”
Bo agrees and they get in the skunk car and ride off to the antique store.
Buzz Lightyear at the Carnival
Meanwhile the rest of the toys are doing everything they can to stop Bonnie and her family from leaving the town without Woody and Forky. They wind up at a carnival across from the antique store, with Buzz racing into town to save Woody. He gets stopped by a carnival worker who puts him in a booth to be won as a prize. It is there he meets two new stuffed animal toys sewn together named Ducky and Bunny (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele). They are all on the rack together, and they are annoyed that Buzz might get won by a kid before them.
They start kicking Buzz, shouting “To infinity and… MY FOOT!!!”
Duke Caboom in the Pinball Machine
The toys wind up back in the antique shop where the sheep get taken as well, but Bo knows a secret hideaway inside an old pinball machine where toys can gather safely, kind of like Rick’s in Casablanca.
Bo says she’ll do the talking, and they wind up walking through a crowd of old toys until they get to… Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves), a kind of Canadian version of Evel Knievel who rides a motorcycle and wears a white jumpsuit with a red maple leaf on it.
“Look who jumped 40 school buses and landed back in my life,” Duke says to Bo.
Duke introduces himself as Canada’s greatest stuntman, then does a bunch of heroic poses for them. She tells them that they need to jump over the aisle to get to Gabby. Then Duke flashes back to when his original kid threw him away when he realized Duke couldn’t jump as far as in the commercial. Then Bo says he’s the only man who can crash over there and he gets interested.
Toy Story 4 ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21.
