I didn't mind Cars. Kids fucking LOVE that movie though. They go apeshit over it.

I thought the story behind TS 2 was that Pixar was making it direct to video, but when Disney saw how good it was turning out, they boosted it's budget to make it go theatrical.

Isn't there also a story where Lasseter and Co. saw the footage for TS2, thought it was terrible, scrapped the whole thing and started from scratch well into production? I think I heard that on The Pixar Story.

According to Wikipedia:

Disney initially envisioned the film as a direct-to-video sequel. Toy Story 2 began production in a building separated from Pixar, on a small scale, as most of the main Pixar staff were busy working on A Bug's Life (1998). When story reels proved promising, Disney upgraded the film to theatrical release, but Pixar was unhappy with the film's quality. Lasseter and the story team redeveloped the entire plot in one weekend. Although most Pixar features take years to develop, the established release date could not be moved and the production schedule for Toy Story 2 was compressed into nine months.[3][4]

That last bit isn't correct. Pixar assumed it would count and didn't find out until well into production that it didn't. That led to some strife with Disney.

I hope Combat Carl somehow returns for Toy Story 4 as he was good in the Halloween short.

Yes, and the Transformer/Voltron-ish guy too. GI Joes and robots were huuuuuge toy genres underrepresented in TS.

Re: Toy Story 4 (2017, D: Lasseter, A: Hanks, Allen) - News, Rumors...

Toy Story 3 felt like such a perfect capper to Woody and Buzz’s journey that we couldn’t help but wonder why Pixar felt the need to retread old territory with the upcoming Toy Story 4. But it turns out that’s not what Pixar has in mind at all.

In a new interview, studio president Jim Morris reveals that the next film will take things in a very different direction, which may or may not be continued in future installments. More on the new Toy Story 4 details after the jump.

In an interview for Disney Latino, Morris said although Toy Story 4 picks up after Toy Story 3 left off, it isn’t a continuation of the earlier trilogy. (Note: All quotes below have been translated by Google from Spanish to English, and then edited for clarity by me.) He explained:

The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know if will be continued. Never begin a project with that in mind.

So what will this separate story be, exactly? Morris offered some vague hints:

It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3. Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will not put much focus on the interaction between the characters and children. I think it will be a very good movie.

The romcom angle is a new one for the franchise, but it’s the other reveal that really sets Toy Story 4 apart from previous installments. Woody and Andy’s evolving relationship was a crucial element of the first three Toy Story films. The next film sounds more in the vein of the shorts and specials, in which the toys are mostly left to their own devices.

Morris stated the film is currently around the position of being in its third table read, and says the script is “evolving very well.” He also reiterated that they aren’t making Toy Story 4 for the money, but because they came up with an “irresistible” idea. “The decision to make a second or third [installment] entirely depends on how passionate the director of the project is,” he said.

As previously reported, John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich dreamed up the story, and Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are writing the script. Jones and McCormack are new to Pixar, but know their way around love stories — they previously scripted the breakup dramedy Celeste and Jesse Forever.

Lasseter is directing Toy Story 4, which is due to be released June 16, 2017.

Re: Toy Story 4 (2017, D: Lasseter, A: Hanks, Allen) - News, Rumors...

I'm fine with the new film just focusing on the toy characters and not having the human characters. They've always just been secondary characters in the films anyways and Andy's story is wrapped up. Not sure about the love story but it could be okay if its done right. I do tend to agree that three films formed a nice trilogy and I'm not sure we need another sequel but hopefully it turns out good.

Bo Peep returns to Toy Story 4


Quote:
Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter confirmed on Friday what fans have speculated about for the better part of a year: "Toy Story 4" will revolve around a romance between the blockbuster's main character, a toy cowboy voiced by Tom Hanks, and a nursery rhyme doll.

"It's a love story with Woody and—and this is news—Bo Peep," he told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." Lasseter revealed the plot point last winter but kept the details under wraps.

Huge from me. After three movies and 3-5 shorts/specials all centered around one or more toys being lost or left behind, I am ready for something fresh.

Re: Toy Story 4 (2019, D: Lasseter, A: Hanks, Allen) - News, Rumors...

Is it just me, or does it seem like they're pushing this franchise one movie too far?

The last movie addressed the reality of kids outgrowing toys and what happens to those toys as the kids get older. It was poignant and fun all at the same time. It seemed like the perfect ending to the story.

To me, this almost seems like Stallone going back to the well after his last Rambo movie. He thought about it, started preparing a script, and then realized that the last movie was the perfect way to end the series and a new movie just wouldn't live up to that and wouldn't be as fitting an end as that one was. In this case they are going full steam ahead, even though the 3rd movie had that perfect ending to the story.

I'm not a big fan of the series (I like Toy Story 2 the best, find 3 passable if boring and never cared for #1) but I feel like the characters still have some life in them. And frankly that seems to be the thing lacking from most movies these days: Characters you actually give a shit about.

We need a thread title edit :

Toy Story 4 Gets New Director Josh Cooley, John Lasseter Stepping Down

The sequel will hit theaters on June 21, 2019.

Toy Story 4 will be directed by Josh Cooley, with John Lasseter stepping stepping down from the role. Disney and Pixar announced this on stage at the D23 Expo during its animation panel.

Cooley started worked at Pixar as an intern on the original Cars movie, while most recently working as the head of story and writer of Inside Out. John Lasseter, Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios' Chief Creative Officer, is still remaining on the film as an executive producer, explaining, “...I'm going to be working really closely with Josh and his team, mentoring him and teaching him everything I know”


They also showcased a bit of behind the scenes footage, including footage of Jeff Pidgeon, who voices the Aliens, recording the film's very first line of dialogue.

Toy Story 4 was announced back in 2014, along with Lasseter's involvement as director. It was original set for June 2017 release date, before being pushed to June 21, 2019.
