PICK ME! -- Ducky and Bunny are carnival prizes who are eager to be won.

Funny men Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele provide the voices of Ducky and Bunny, respectively. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019. ©2018 Disney•Pixar.

Although initial reports from BoxOfficePro stated that Toy Story 4 was eyeing a $130 million dollar opening weekend, that number has since skyrocketed among box office analysts.

According to Deadline, the new tracking number is currently $200 million dollars, which would shatter the previous record held by Incredibles 2 of $182.6 million. Pre-sale tickets for Toy Story 4 went on sale this past Tuesday, and now both Fandango and Atom Tickets report that the film has already outsold Incredibles 2 in the first 24 hours. Over at Fandango, Toy Story 4 also outsold Finding Dory, the live-action Beauty and the Beast, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Meanwhile, Toy Story 4 sold 50% more tickets on Atom than Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Hotel Transylvania 3, with moviegoers voting it one of the Top 5 most anticipated movies of the summer as well as one of their most anticipated family movies.

The previous Toy Story film – released in June 2010 – opened with $130 million dollars and went on to make $1.06 billion dollars.

Toy Story 4 opens June 21st.
