Last week, Disney•Pixar released some BIG news! Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Toy Story gang have another story to tell. It’s not over.
The story was dreamt up by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the incredible 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.”
Joining the project are seasoned writing pair, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. Pixar veteran Galyn Susman (ABC’s “Toy Story OF TERROR!” and “Toy Story that Time Forgot”) is producing.
With this incredibly talented and creative team behind the film, Toy Story 4 is sure to be another epic story. Toy Story 4 is set to release on June 16, 2017!
