A part of your childhood has just been brought back to life as Disney confirm the release of Toy Story 4 for June 2017.
John Lasseter, the lad who directed Toy Story and Toy Story 2, will be returning to take the reigns for the film.
The idea for the fourth edition to the Toy Story collection was thought up by “Finding Nemo” director Andrew Stanton, “Up” director Pete Docter and “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich, along with John Lasseter himself.
“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 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.”
Tom Hanks has not yet been confirmed to play Woody, however we can’t imagine anyone else filling those cowboy boots.
Get 16th June 2017 in your calendars. It’s on.
