6 shows for the whole family

Tom Hanks and Keanu Reeves are in Toy Story 4 and Phineas and Ferb have a festival.

6 shows for the whole family that will teach a thing or two about music.

Toy Story 4

It comes as no surprise that Josh Cooley’s Toy Story 4 recently won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, having directed the heart-warming animated films Inside Out and Up – both Oscar-winning films in their own right. Relive your childhood as you sing along to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” one last time as Woody (Tom Hanks) and friends team up one last time in Toy Story 4. When Woody’s new family goes on a road trip, his human owner Bonnie loses her favourite new toy Forky. Woody takes it upon himself to find the little guy before Bonnie realises he’s missing. With voice-acting from Tim Allen, Keanu Reeves and Annie Potts.
