For all the laughs and sweet surprises, the Toy Story franchise can also deliver big frights, from the freaky mutant toys in the 1995 original to the deadly incinerator that nearly claimed the lives of Woody, Buzz and the gang in 2010's Toy Story 3.

We've seen Chuck (Zachary Levi) come into his own as a spy and as a man by finally marrying Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We've met his butt-kicking parents (Linda Hamilton, Scott Bakula), saw Ellie and Awesome (Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin) have a baby and even witnessed Morgan (Josh Gomez) find romance.
