Months after Toy Story 3, it is winter break for Bonnie, who is going on vacation to Hawaii with her family. The toys are excited to have a week of relaxation, but Barbie and Ken reveal themselves to have stowed away in Bonnie's backpack, hoping to join her in Hawaii. Bonnie leaves them in her room, however, much to Ken's horror and disappointment when he realizes they are not going to Hawaii. Barbie reveals to Woody that Ken planned to have their first kiss on a beach at sunset (based on a travel brochure), inspiring Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Bonnie's toys to go all out and recreate Hawaii for the two. After various adventures in "Hawaii", Ken and Barbie share their first kiss in the snow at sunrise, recreating the scene from the brochure. However, the two step off the edge of the porch without realizing it and end up buried in snow; a post-credits scene shows the other toys trying to free them from a block of ice in which they are now frozen.

En 2045, le monde est en proie à de nombreux soucis : crise énergétique, désastre causé par le changement climatique, la famine, la pauvreté, la guerre, etc. Dans ce monde chaotique, l'OASIS est un système mondial de réalité virtuelle, accessible par l'intermédiaire de visiocasques et de dispositifs haptiques tels que des gants et des combinaisons. Conçu à l'origine comme un jeu de rôle en ligne massivement multijoueur (MMORPG), il est devenu au fil du temps une véritable société virtuelle dont toute l'humanité se sert comme exutoire. Son créateur, James Halliday, était l'un des hommes les plus riches et populaires au monde, avant son décès. À sa mort, une vidéo est diffusée dans laquelle il explique qu'il léguera son immense fortune, 500 milliards de dollars, ainsi que sa société, GSS, à la personne qui réussira à trouver l’easter egg (« œuf de Pâques ») caché dans l'OASIS. Wade Watts, un jeune orphelin de 18 ans vivant à Columbus, est un fin connaisseur de Halliday et de l'OASIS, via son avatar Parzival, Wade va tout tenter pour trouver l’œuf. Il devra faire face à la multinationale Innovative Online Industries (IOI) et son PDG, Nolan Sorrento, prêt à tout pour prendre le contrôle du monde virtuel. Wade pourra compter sur l'aide de plusieurs alliés dans l'OASIS, notamment la mystérieuse Art3mis.

Alors que Ralph est heureux de la vie qu'il a, Vanellope avoue être ennuyée par son jeu, qui est trop prévisible, et aimerait de la nouveauté. Un jour, Ralph essaie d'exaucer son souhait en créant une course bonus dans l'un des circuits. Vanellope va contre la joueuse de la borne d'arcade pour profiter de la course à fond, tant et si bien que la joueuse, en forçant trop sur le volant, le casse. La situation paraît désespérée lorsque le propriétaire de la salle d'arcade, M. Litwak, annonce que le créateur de Sugar Rush a fait faillite, quand l'un des adolescents trouve un volant sur eBay. Cependant, M. Litwak le trouve trop cher et n'a d'autre choix que de débrancher la borne de Sugar Rush, laissant tous les personnages du jeu sans abri.

En 1965, l'analyste Daniel Ellsberg se rend sur le front de la guerre du Viêt Nam pour y observer l'avancement des troupes américaines, pour le compte du secrétaire à la Défense, Robert McNamara. En 1971, Daniel Ellsberg travaille désormais pour RAND Corporation. Il décide de photocopier secrètement des rapports sur le progrès du conflit au Viêt Nam, depuis la présidence de Harry S. Truman à 1967, révélant le double discours des différentes administrations américaines sur les chances de victoire des États-Unis au Vietnam. Les gouvernements successifs ont ainsi caché au peuple américain la réalité de l'enlisement du conflit. Daniel Ellsberg divulgue alors des informations au New York Times. Le journal est cependant mis en garde par la justice, sous la pression du président Richard Nixon, sur les conséquences de la publication d'informations nationales classées secrètes. D'abord sur la touche, le Washington Post va récupérer le scoop grâce à la motivation de son rédacteur en chef, Benjamin Bradlee. Ce dernier va inciter la directrice du journal, Katharine Graham, à publier les fameux Pentagon Papers. Mais cette dernière doit aussi faire face à son conseil d'administration et à la future entrée en bourse de son journal. Le film s'achève sur l'arrêt de la Cour Suprême New York Times Co. v. United States, dans lequel les équipes du Washington Post s'alignent avec celles du New York Times parmi les parties convoquées, ce qui ouvre la voie sur la scène finale, montrant le Watergate de nuit, théâtre du scandale du Watergate, démarré en 1972 et qui mettra fin à la présidence Nixon en 1974.
