I saw that one. Disappointing. Not nearly at the level of the nearly perfect first three Toy Story movies. (Although my son, who saw it with me, disagrees. He's 16.)
(The other four billion dollar movies this year are Captain Marvel, Aladdin, Lion King, and Avengers: End Game)

Trump Fact:— Donaldo (@donaldmackenz30) August 10, 2019
New Yorkers don't like Trump.
They have started a petition to request that the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 59th be renamed President Barack H. Obama Avenue.
If it gets the green light, Trump Tower will have a new address.
Poetic justice or what...?
