Toy Story 4 is Coming

Save the date, June 16th, 2017. That's when the next phase of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the "Toy Story" gang comes to life. I'm still amazed at home far in advance they schedule these things. Actually, I'm more amazed at how much Disney milks Pixar's movies for sequels instead of coming out with new stuff. How soon til the sequel to Big Hero 6 comes out?
Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with “Toy Story,” it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters.
John Lasseter, director of the original “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” will direct the film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the “Toy Story” gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three “Toy Story” films.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” said Lasseter. “We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. ‘Toy Story 3’ ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another ‘Toy Story’ movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.”

Writing team Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste and Jesse Forever”) joined the project, and Pixar veteran Galyn Susman (ABC’s “Toy Story OF TERROR!” and “Toy Story that Time Forgot”) is producing.

  1. Unbelievably excited for this! I was just a kid when the first one came out. I had the game on PlayStation and loved it, even though it frustrated the hell out of me. Love that I can now share this with my own children x

  2. I'm surprised that they are coming out with another one. I thought the last one would be it. These were nice movies though.

  3. I have heard a lot of people say that the third installment of Toy Story should have been the last. I'm sure that the children will be very happy to see a fourth installment of Toy Story. Thank you for sharing this post.
