That's right: there's going to be a Toy Story 4!!!
I'm typically not a huge fan of sequels (or more than that...) but in the case of Toy Story, I made an exception! I initially was sad to see that Pixas has fallen into the Disney style of sequels that aren't so great, but Toy Story 3 changed my mind, and I think Toy Story 4 can do the same! I love seeing really new, creative work from Pixar, and I initially worried that Disney and Pixar's relationship would cause this to change.
But, I think the fourth film is going to be more than solid:
original director John Lasseter is onboard, and he will be working with lee Unkrich who directed Toy Story 3. Also involved:
- Pete Docter, the director of Up
- Andrew Stanton, the director of Finding Nemo
- Screenplay by Rashida Jones, who has starred on Parks and Recreation and The Office with help from Will McCormack, who previously wrote alongside Jones
- Galyn Susman, producer of Toy Story shorts, will be involved as well
Alright, so who else is excited?!
Oh wait, I forgot to mention we have to wait till June of 2017......yep. Don't hold your breath!!
