‘Toy Story 4′ Confirmed For a 2015 Release?
Still emotionally reeling from the ending of 'Toy Story 3'? Don't put your tissue box down just yet! A new rumor suggests that Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang might be making a return to the big screen in 'Toy Story 4.' But can you wait until 2015?
Even though the third 'Toy Story' wrapped up Pixar's series of films as well as can be conceived, it seems a no-brainer that the company would want to bring back the beloved characters once more for 'Toy Story 4.' After all, 'Toy Story 3' is their most successful film, grossing over $1 billion at the box office and nabbing a Best Picture nomination (as well as a Best Animated Feature win). Why wouldn't they want to revive their most popular series after a brief break?
According to Columbian news site Terra (via Bleeding Cool), Disney and Pixar have confirmed that 'Toy Story 4' will come out in 2015. In addition, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack are all allegedly set to return to voice Woody, Buzz and Jessie, respectively.
Adding to the intrigue, Disney had previously set a November, 2015 release date for an "unnamed" Pixar film. Even the two 2016 Pixar films have titles or plot details revealed, so it would be weird for Pixar to keep a 2015 movie secret...unless they had something they wanted to keep secret.
Of course, this has not been confirmed by Disney on our shore, nor anywhere else as far as we can see, so don't mark it on your calendar just yet. However, it's already been clear that Disney isn't retiring the characters anytime soon: last year they issued the short 'Partysaurus Rex' and are prepping a Halloween special titled 'Toy Story of Terror'. And Pixar is working on two half-hour 'Toy Story' specials that would air on ABC in the next two years. Are these just warm-ups for a (some would say inevitable) 'Toy Story 4?'
