UKG Creates Extra Buzz For Toy Story 4 For Indies

Tipped to be the biggest family film of the Summer, Disney Pixar’s Toy Story 4 hits the big screens on June 21 and UK Greetings has something extra in store for all retailers ordering one of the specially designed shippers that has been developed to house the 20 greeting card designs based on the Disney franchise.

For every shipper order (each of which will come with a wobbler to further highlight the new film), the retailer’s name will be entered into a free prize draw, with the lucky winner receiving a £250 voucher to spend at the Disney Store.

There is so much anticipation about the new film, especially as it’s been eight years since Woody, Buzz and the gang were on the big screen.

Toy Story 4 continues from Toy Story 3, where Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), among their other toy friends, found new appreciation after being given away by Andy Davis (as he headed off to university) to a young girl called Bonnie Anderson. The new storyline sees them introduced to a new character, Forky (Tony Hale) who is a spork that has been made into a toy, and they soon embark on a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends. In addition to Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, the film will feature returning cast members, including Annie Potts reprising her role as Bo Peep, while Don Rickles, who died in April 2017, will appear posthumously as Mr. Potato Head through the use of archival recordings. New additions include Tony HaleKeegan-Michael KeyJordan PeeleKeanu ReevesChristina HendricksAlly Maki, and Madeline McGraw.

The UK prize draw entry period started yesterday (April 1) and runs until 3 May. The winner will be contacted on 10 May.
