Toy Story 4 has finally been confirmed… and it’ll be directed by Toy Story veteran, John Lasseter.
Having built their reputation on the back of the Toy Story movies, it looks as though Pixar (via Disney) will be returning to its roots with another sequel to the Toy Story franchise. In one of the biggest announcements in the last few years, Disney has finally unveiled their plan to bring Toy Story 4 to the big screen… and it should be in cinemas by 2017.
Appearing during a quarterly earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Toy Story 4 has finally been confirmed… and will be directed by none other than John Lasseter.
“John created Toy Story and directed the first two films, and it’s great to have him back directing one of our most valuable properties,” he said. And with a release date of 16 June 2017, it won’t be long until the toys are back in town.
Of course, rumours of a fourth Toy Story movie began to resurface several weeks ago… and it looks as though they’ve turned out to be true. But that’s not the first time we’ve heard about the upcoming Toy Story sequel.
Back in 2011, director John Lasseter was quizzed about Toy Story 4… and it seems he could hardly keep a straight face.
Of course, no other details have surfaced about the upcoming sequel… but its thought that both Tim Allen and Tom Hanks will return to voice fan favourites, Buzz and Woody. After all, it wouldn’t be Toy Story without them.
Quite what happens to our favourite toys remains to be seen… but I can’t wait to find out.
