To a fourth movie, and beyond!
Yes — Disney just announced “Toy Story 4.” The news is a surprise — in 2010, ”Toy Story 3” ended with a script that pretty much wrapped things up — I mean, Andy went to college.
WOODY: “We all knew this day was coming.”
But chairman Bob Iger said Thursday a fourth movie is coming in June 2017. So, maybe Andy is working? … Or facing the plight of a generation that has difficulty getting employed post-college? OK, neither here nor there.
So where could the story go from here? The same Pixar guys who have been making the “Toy Story” movies since 1995 came up with the idea. Director John Lasseter said in a statement...
“We don’t want to do anything with [these characters] unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. ... 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.”
Big promises. One unique spin for this one though —
Rashida Jones and WIll McCormack, yes, “Parks & Rec’s” Rashida Jones, will co-write the movie.
No official word on whether original voices Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will return. But we’re hoping...
WOODY: “Woody saves the day again!”
