Disney & Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features “The Ballad of The Lonesome Cowboy” Performed By Chris Stapleton

Woody, Buzz and the gang are back in the highly anticipated Disney and Pixar animated film, “Toy Story 4.” Accompanying the film is Walt Disney Records’ soundtrack album, which reunites the Toy Story franchise with the Academy Award-winning composer and songwriter Randy Newman. The soundtrack features two new songs “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away” and “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy.”  The end credit version of “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy” is performed by multi-Platinum, Grammy-winning musician Chris Stapleton.   The song is available today as a single and lyric video.  The soundtrack will be available from Walt Disney Records on June 21 as the film opens in U.S. theaters nationwide.

“The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy” was written from Woody’s perspective.  Newman said, “Woody feels like he was a lonesome cowboy until someone comes along and changes his world.” Newman was excited to hear Chris Stapleton would record the end credit version of the song and felt he’d bring Woody’s feelings to life perfectly. “Chris Stapleton did a great job on this song.”

Stapleton said, “To me what has made the ‘Toy Story’ films hold up over time has been the strength of the stories and the songs and the writing and the characters. There’s something for people of all ages to enjoy in the world that is ‘Toy Story.’ It’s a tremendous honor to get to sing a Randy Newman song in what is without question one of the most iconic animated franchises in history.”

The Toy Story 4 original motion picture soundtrack is now available for physical pre-order. “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy” performed by Chris Stapleton is available at streaming and download services.

Watch The Final Toy Story 4 Trailer

Check out the final trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4, as well as two new images from the trailer featuring Woody, Bo Peep and Bonnie’s new friend Forky. 

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So, when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries. 

The film features the voice talent of Tim Allen, Keegan-Michael Key, Madeleine McGraw, Christina Hendricks, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Ally Maki, Jay Hernandez, Lori Alan, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, Kristen Schaal, Emily Davis, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Blake Clark, June Squibb, Carl Weathers, Lila Sage, Don Rickles, Jeff Garlin, Maliah Bargas-Good, Jack McGraw, Juliana Hansen, and Estelle Harris.

Directed by Josh Cooley (Riley’s First Date?), and produced by Mark Nielsen (associate producer Inside Out) and Jonas Rivera (Inside Out, Up), Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 ventures to theaters on June 21, 2019.

Chucky Murders Woody From Toy Story In New Child’s Play Poster

Chucky’s not afraid of a little competition as the new Child’s Play movie poster calls out Toy Story 4, which will open in theaters on the same day.

Aubrey Plaza (Ingrid Goes West) and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) are headlining the new Child’s Play, under the helm of filmmaker Lars Klevberg (Polaroid). Tyler Burton Smith wrote the screenplay based on the 1988 film. In the reboot, Plaza stars as a mother who gives her son Andy, portrayed by Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out), a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. The new version of the killer doll won’t be a doll possessed by a serial killer but will be a defective Buddy doll whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence.

Additional cast includes Beatrice Kitsos (The Exorcist) and Ty Consiglio (Wonder) who will be playing the roles of Falyn and Pugg respectively, two friends of Andy Barclay in the new film which is currently shooting in Vancouver. Carlease Burke (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) will also star in the film. Mark Hamill (Star Wars) will take over from Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) as the voice of Chucky.

This will be a complete diversion from the original Child’s Play movie series created by Don Mancini, which featured Brad Dourif playing a serial killer who used voodoo to place his spirit in a ‘Good Guy Doll,’ which would become the Chucky we all know and love. Though Mancini and producer David Kirschner are currently working on making more Child’s Play movies, as well as a TV series, with Dourif still voicing Chucky, this new take on Child’s Play by Orion will essentially be a competing property, and Mancini and company will not be involved at all.

Child’s Play hits theaters on June 21.
