Disney Pixar’s TOY STORY 4
Next year will mark twenty years since the beginning of Pixar Animation Stuido’s TOY STORY. Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the “Toy Story” gang are back in Disney Pixar’s TOY STORY 4! The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.
John Lasseter, director of the original “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” will direct the film. The story, a new chapter for the popular characters, 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.
I can’t wait to see what is in store for Woody and the gang in 2017!
TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!
