Toy Story 4 Is Officially A Thing That Is Happening - UPDATE
In an announcement made to Wall Street Analysts, Walt Disney Co. Chief Bob Iger announced that John Lasseter will be directing Toy Story 4, set for release in June 2017.
Toy Story 3, which took in nearly $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office, was set to be the close of Pixar's first major franchise. But that has gone up in smoke, as this new entry will continue the tale, conceivably of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and co., though no details of the plot were actually released at this time.
Everything about this screams "really bad idea", but Pixar has been a bit of a whipping boy of late, having had recent stumbles with Brave and Cars 2. But perhaps they've cracked some new angle, we'll see.
UPDATE: This comes direct from Disney...
