Those who've seen Toy Story 4 will remember franchise's new characters the lovable, inquisitive spork, named Forky.

The series will be comprised of 10 "short films" in which Forky asks life's most important questions.

A trailer released by Disney yesterday (30th October) gave a taste of the kind of questions the animated spork will be pondering with the help of his friends, the much-loved Toy Story characters such as Rex and Hamm.

"What is a friend?", "What is art?", and "What is time?" Are the kind of questions set to entertain nd educate young viewers. Oh, there's "What is cheese?" too.

In the fourth and final instalment of the franchise, released in June 2019, Forky comes to life after the toys' new owner, Bonnie, makes him from arts and crafts supplies at playschool.

Forky has to learn life from the very beginning, so the spin-off TV show makes perfect sense for his character. "All of life's greatest questions-answered. Sort of," reads the line from Disney.

It's not yet known when UK Disney lovers will be able to watch the original shorts, with no word as of yet when Disney+ will be landing in the UK.

Actor Tony Hale of Arrested Development who voices Forky told Variety of his character: "I will say, I've become quite an advocate for sporks.

"They are a very underrated utensil. It's like the unicorn of utensils, they need a lot more attention. It has a really great purpose.

"It's great for a nice thick minestrone soup. It's just not getting the attention it deserves. It's the best of both worlds."

We can't wait for this.
