Disney Announces Toy Story 4
Woody and Buzz Are Back, As Disney Announces Toy Story 4
In a move that may surprise many, Disney has revealed that a fourth Toy Story movie will be released in 2017.
Toy Story was released in 1995 and in one fell swoop, changed the face of animated movies forever – an incredibly successful sequel followed, with the trilogy wrapping up in 2010 with Toy Story 3.
However, Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger has announced that a fourth instalment will hit theatres on June 16, 2017.
It was also recently reported that the film will be written by Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation & The Office) and her screen-writing partner Will McCormack.
The story was dreamed up by John Lasseter, who helmed all three Toy Story movies, as well as the brains behind Up, Finding Nemo.
Lasseter has acknowledged that Toy Story 3 appeared to close off the series for good, but said once they came up with a new idea they had to see where it went.
