I’m yet to meet a grown man who didn’t cry during TOY STORY 3. Can Disney Pixar really top that? Well they’re gonna try, with TOY STORY 4 in the pipeline!
So I’ve always had this conspiracy theory that the TOY STORY franchise is Hollywood’s way of instilling the all-American ‘nation of fear’ mentality in it’s children…I mean, think about it: In the first movie it’s all about the paranoia of being replaced. In the second, it’s fear of being lost or kidnapped, while number three deals oodles of anxiety about being discarded or unwanted.
The lesson learned? There’s always something to be afraid of kiddies!
But maybe that just me….
Despite my moral objections to the whole franchise, I secretly love it and am pretty excited to see what number four will have in store for us…shame it’s not coming out for ages!
The CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, has revealed that Pixar will release TOY STORY 4 on June 16, 2017. John Lasseter will return to direct, and Pixar dream team Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich are on board to create the story.
So what will the new flick be about? Well Lasseter described the film as “a love story” in an interview with the LA Times…but of an anticlimax right? Lasseter doesn’t think so:
“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us. 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 for a long time, we never talked about doing another Tory 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 I had to make this movie – I wanted to direct it myself” He stated.
Stay tuned for more info as it develops!
