Tom Hanks confirms Toy Story 4's existence

Jun. 27, 2011by: Paul Tassi

TOY STORY 3 appeared to be the perfect bookend for that franchise, an emotional and satisfying resolution for all Andy's toys, but this is Hollywood, and the third film did make an absolutely insane amount of money, sooo why not continue the ride, right?

There has been almost no sequel talk as Pixar works on other projects, but Tom Hanks appears to have accidentally let the cat out of the bag on the BBC's Breakfast News. When asked about the possibility of TOY STORY 4 he replied:

"I think there will be yeah. Yeah, yeah. They’re working on it now. There you go."

Not only that he thinks there will be, but that he says they're actually working on it? Sounds like confirmation to me. These movies do take years and years to craft, but it does make you wonder what exactly they're up to. I suppose this series has more sequel potential than most, as the characters are entertaining doing anything (as seen in the Hawaiian Vacation short before CARS 2). So what will their next adventure entail?

Should they keep going with the series, or is this just a cash grab?

Extra Tidbit: The only Pixar sequel I'd really want to see is THE INCREDIBLES 2.

Buzz and Woody are immortal characters. I'm not sure how I'd feel now that Andy's gone to college. What more can we get out of a feature concerning these characters? Pixar still has the ability to surprise me, but I can't imagine this will do more than just be a retread as another child goes through the stages of growing up.

thumbs me down all you want

But I sincerely believe TS3 got shafted for best picture. It was a great movie that hit every emotional level. Not many movies can do that, especially animated movies.

I saw every single one of the movies nominated and I can honestly say Toy Story 3 was the best out of all those movies.

What the fuck are you on about? Everyone felt that way (except for me maybe, How To Train Your Dragon I think is superior). But I see what you've done there, not a bad way of getting thumbs up.

I think this is a joke, Hanks might have been sarcastic, It's hard to tell in print.
I've thought they should do a half-hour or hour-long Toy Story TV Special on Disney-owned ABC. Maybe a Holiday special or something, instead of a new movie. Then they could release it on DVD along with the shorts. It would be interesting if they had Andy's family stop at Bonnie's over the holidays, would make an interesting plot for a 30minute or hour special. There is so much they can do with the franchise

If they went for pure humor it could work. 3 was heavy on the emotion and sadness, which was perfect for that one.

Even though I loved Toy Story 3, it did seem similar at points to the second film. They'd be pushing their luck with 4th film. I'm willing to bet Disney is pushing for this, they released crappy direct-to-video sequels to just about every animated movie they made as a quick cash grab.

I love the Toy Story trilogy and all of the characters, so there's a small part of me that wouldn't mind seeing them again, but at the same time Toy Story 3 was the perfect ending for the story and a Toy Story 4 just seems kind of like an unnecessary encore.

This just in-- money can and will be made no matter how far it flies in the face of taste, decency or logic.

TS3 borrowed pretty heavily from the Brave Little Toaster.

Why does everyone assume Pixar is cashing in on this? Disney probably gets 85% of any revenue from merchandise.
I assume Disney is responsible for making them produce all of these sequels.

I will say this...

I remember when many people thought the making of 'Toy Story 3' was a pure moneygrab that none of the serious artists at Pixar wanted to make. Time passed, Pixar took the reins, inspiration was found. And then lo and behold...we got the best Pixar movie to date, so good it made the two previous Toy Story films shine even brighter.

Toy Story 3 was the perfect ending though. I'm satisfied.

Tom Hanks is just mistaken

Pixar IS currently working on a Toy Story film...a SHORT film, to go in front of one of their movies. Not a full length feature.

This is just known information that Tom Hanks misinterpreted.

Pixar is becoming the next Dreamworks

I thought Pixar would always want to just craft original stories and characters, but now recently every other project they announce is a sequel. Toy Story 3 ended so well, I'd hate to see them make another one.

Pixar has yet to disappoint me [haven't seen cars 2 yet], but if this is legitimate, i will be upset, TS3 was the perfect conclusion to a childhood memory, and if a forth is in the works, it almost defeats everything Pixar stands for.

I Love The Toy Story Films But.....

PLEASE DON'T MAKE A TOY STORY 4!!! Toy Story 3 ended the franchise so perfectly! Andy went off to college and the movie was FANTASTIC. I know Toy Story 3 made a shit load of money, but a 4th film is unnecessary.

I thought TS3 was a great ending to the story, but I thought TS2 was as well. They haven't let me down yet and if they feel like they have something better to end it on, I'm willing to see it. They've earned that much.

No more.

I'm down for other Pixar films, although I would still like to see them in short form.

I remember reading a review on another movie website when TS3 came out: the reviewer was PO'd that the series ended the way it did, as they wanted the toys to go to Andy's children, and that they should make a second trilogy. Needless to say, he got ripped a new asshole.

The series ended on a high note. Leave it alone and move on to other things Pixar.

Incredibles 2 would be awesome

but thats a Brad Bird film. He wrote it and directed it. He was asked by Pixar to do his movie with them. So if you want another Incredibles movie, you have to petition Brad Bird and not Pixar

Please don't let it be true. TS3 was the perfect ending and TS4 is NOT necessary. The "Hawaiian Vacation" was just fine and Pixar can make new shorts any time they want. TS4 would absolutely kill the magic that 3 created.

Nooooo!

Prior to "Cars 2," I would have said, "No way, Pixar would never just do a movie for the money." But their latest film has kinda made me second-guess them in that regard. And I guess when you cross a $1 billion worldwide, there's a lot of pressure on you to keep going. I still love them to death though, and thought TS3 was the perfect conclusion to that story, so I really, really hope Tom Hanks was incorrectly quoted or confused (maybe he was referring to the animated short films that Lasseter
