‘Toy Story 4’ Interview: How Ally Maki’s Giggle McDimples Brings Joy To Pixar’s Sequel Through Laughter and Inspiration

Toy Story 4

Pixar’s Toy Story 4 may bring back some of the most beloved characters that we’ve cherished since 1995, but the latest installment adds a few new unforgettable characters that come in all shapes and sizes. One of them is the tiniest toy of the entire Toy Story family: Giggle McDimples is the pocket figure who happens to be an officer of Miniopolis’ Pet Patrol. But whenever she isn’t out on patrol, she can be seen perched on Bo Peep’s shoulder. And just as her surname suggests, she is full of infectious giggles and has an energy that simply cannot be contained.

Voiced by Ally Maki, Giggles will help Woody and Bo rescue Forky, who is being held captive by Gabby Gabby. But Giggles isn’t just some simple side supporting character. She has a fairly substantial role in the film. And a lot of that will show in her assertiveness and fearlessness, and also that contagious laughter that she has.

Geeks of Doom joined fellow journalists for a roundtable interview with Maki at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, CA. There, she talked about what it was like to voice the pocket-sized toy, why she created Asian American Girls Club, and what she hopes Toy Story 4 can accomplish. Check out our roundtable chat with her here below.

TOY STORY 4

Toy Story 4
Director: Josh Cooley
Writer: Stephany Folsom, Andrew Stanton
Cast: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Ally Maki, Joan Cusack, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Blake Clark, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated G | Minutes: 100
Release Date: June 21, 2019

It has been an incredible journey for the Toy Story gang. Though Toy Story 3 is hailed as one of the best of the franchise, many questioned the need to have another sequel about Woody and Buzz. Well, everything seen and heard in Toy Story 4 validates that need.

An emotionally and visually beautiful epilogue to Pixar’s flagship films, Toy Story 4 takes some bold risks by inserting heavy themes and thrusts beloved characters into unfamiliar territory. By doing so, we get to see these treasured characters in a whole new light and are given even more reasons to continue loving them. Most importantly, the film continues to have all the heart and the humor that the franchise is known for. Check out my full review here below.

Final ‘Toy Story 4’ Trailer: Woody and The Gang Discover What They Really Are

TOY STORY 4

The entire premise of Toy Story 4 asks the question, what makes a toy a toy? It’s a deep and existential question that has never been explored in any of the previous Toy Story films. This comes about when Bonnie brings home Forky (Tony Hale), a googly-eyed spork with pipe-cleaners for arms and a broken popsicle stick for legs. It just sets the stage for a much bigger adventure when Bonnie takes all of her toys on a family road trip, and Woody (Tom Hanks), being the honorable sheriff that he is, promises to bring back Forky when he runs away.

Pixar has now released the final trailer for Toy Story 4, and you can check it out below.

Toy Story 4

Before Forky was introduced as the heart of the Toy Story 4 plot, it was rumored that the film was going to be a romantic film about Woody being reunited with his long lost love Bo Peep, a porcelain figure based on the nursery rhyme character Little Bo-Peep.

She was noticeably absent in Toy Story 3, which led many to believe that she was lost or broken. However, she will be back in Toy Story 4, and with a brand new look. Check out her teaser intro video below.
