What is the plot of Lost Ollie?

by Netflix Lost Ollie is an adaptation of the book Ollie’s Odyssey by William Joyce in 2019. Lost Ollie will follow a lost toy, searching the countryside for the boy who lost it, and the story of the boy who lost more than a best friend.

Here is a more detailed description of the plot:

Oswald is a favorite. Of all the toys in Billy’s house, the stuffed bunny ranks number one: wherever Billy goes, so does Oz. But being a favorite is more than a privilege, it’s also fraught with pitfalls. Because of Zozo. Zozo has never been a favorite. An amusement park prize that was never chosen, Zozo has become so bitter that when the amusement park closes, he seeks revenge on every toy lucky enough to be a favorite. He wants them all to become The Lost, and even better, Forgotten. When Billy accidentally leaves Oz under the table at a wedding, Oz finds himself on an unforeseen adventure, kidnapped by the nefarious Zozo and his gang of creeps and faced with the momentous task of saving not only himself, but all of them. other stuff that is “lost” too…

With nods to Toy Story and Knuffle Bunny, but with that carefree joie de vivre of William Joyce and Moonbot, here’s a look at what’s REALLY going on with your stuffed animals when the lights are off.
