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

Quote:
John Lasseter to Direct Fourth 'Toy Story' Film
2:13 PM PST 11/06/2014 by Rebecca Ford

The film will hit theaters in June 2017

John Lasseter will direct a fourth Toy Story film, Walt Disney Company chairman Bob Iger announced during an earnings call Thursday.

The toys-come-to-life family film will hit theaters June 2017.

Lasseter directed the first Toy Story in 1995, and returned to direct the second. He also directed A Bug's Life, and currently holds the title of chief creative officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. The winner of two Academy Awards, Lasseter currently oversees all Pixar and Disney films and associated projects.

The Toy Story trilogy has earned an enormous $1.94 billion worldwide. Toy Story 3, released in June 2010, earned a franchise high of $1.1 billion worldwide, and won two Academy Awards. It was the highest-grossing animated film of all time worldwide until Frozen surpassed it in March.
Here's a mention about the possibility of Toy Story 4 back in 2011.

I'm one of the few that didn't like part 3 that much; curious where they would go with this because as OldBoy said, 3 ended perfectly.

I think the second one is the weak link though that's splitting hairs because they're all great. The trilogy format is overrated and rarely necessary or even appropriate and if they can deliver a 4th film that's as good as the first three I say bring it.

^ Agreed. It's easy to say a previous film that ended well needs no more sequels, but if the story is great it really doesn't matter how many they make.

I don't recall the series covering the whole mass produced toy lines. Obviously there are more Buzz and Woody toys out there in the world. I'd like to see 4 do something with that idea.

They did show mass production of Buzzes and said Woody is a super rare toy.

UPDATE: We’ve also learned some new info including who helped break the story, and the fact Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are writing the script.
If this means we get the large sparks, twitch, chunk figures, I'm all over it.

But there's always a chance a 4th movie can ruin a franchise ala Indiana Jones & KOTCS.

Toy Story 3 was a perfect capper and a 4th one isn't warranted. Give me The Incredibles 2 instead.

Er, wasn't the fact that there were multiple Buzz toys in the world a big part of two of the movies?

EDIT: I think i'm mis-remembering part 3, as I forgot Spanish Buzz wasn't different. But Buzz sees the toy shelves lined with other versions of himself in part 2, right?

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

The first one holds a slightly nostalgic place in my heart but the other two, while excellent movies, have never captured that feeling again. I've got no problem with them doing a fourth Toy Story as long as the story is decent.

I remember reading where Tom Hanks was hesitant to make Toy Story sequels for the sake of it but has kept coming back to the series because he felt the scripts for parts 2 and 3 were good. Hopefully he still thinks the same way and will only sign on if the script was great for part 4.

I wonder if Pixar has the balls to do part 4 with a whole new set of toys and let part 3 be the final send off of Andy's toys.

So Pixar is pretty much just in the sequel business at this point?

Everything except The Incredibles 2. I know it's in development, but it should've been done by now.

To me the first three are so good they've earned the benefit of the doubt on the fourth one. Still, it feels like a bad idea.

Having Lasseter's last movie be a fully executed bad idea doesn't help.

That wouldn't be a bad idea for a short.

It's always funny to me how The Incredibles still doesn't have a sequel seeing as how it's the one movie that really sets itself up for more with the superhero aspect.

This. I love the Toy Story Trilogy and feel they've earned some good will as far as that franchise is concerned. Not to mention all of the subsequent shorts have been great as well so that makes me cautiously optimistic.

Disagree. There have been solid fourth entries. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Rocky IV, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home all come to mind. While I am not a fan of this particular entry, the box office success of Fast & Furious did lead the way for the awesome Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6.

On the flip side, there have also been terrible fourth entries that have killed franchises or hindered box office success for entries that came afterwards. For example, I feel the poor word of mouth for The Final Destination definitely hindered the box office performance of Final Destination 5 which happened to be the best reviewed entry in that particular franchise.

If the story is there, tell it.

... and let's be honest, Lasseter is probably doing this as a favor so Iger doesn't murder Andrew Stanton with his bare hands.
