Toy Story 4 will be a standalone romantic comedy focused on the toys

03.05.2015

A lot of people were surprised by the news that Pixar was developing TOY STORY 4 after the perfect ending the third film provided. Still, this is Hollywood so we should all be used to never saying never. So, the question becomes whether TOY STORY 4 would be continue the story of Buzz and Woody or tell a new tale featuring the same characters.

In an interview with Disney Latino (translation courtesy Slash Film), Pixar President Jim Morris shared that the fourth film would not be a part of what we know as the TOY STORY trilogy.

The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know if will be continued. Never begin a project with that in mind.

So, if TOY STORY 4 is not going to be another adventure focused on the toys trying to rescue one of their own, what is it going to be? Morris elaborates.

It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3. Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will not put much focus on the interaction between the characters and children. I think it will be a very good movie.

A romantic comedy would explain why Rashida Jones and Will McCormack were brought in to develop an idea from John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich. Jones and McCormack scripted the underseen CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER and have a knack for comedy with romantic beats. Morris also said that they are not making the sequel for the money and that further films after TOY STORY 4 are not a lock. But, again, never say never.

 

TOY STORY 4 is slated to hit theaters on June 16, 2017.

He "thinks"? What a horrible way to quote an upcoming project. Toy Story 3 ended on such a perfect high note & you would think Pixar would be above wanting to do another one. It's bad enough they did Cars 2 & Monsters University & who knows about Finding Dory yet? The one movie that deserves a sequel is The Incredibles period!

What he actually meant to say was:

PIXAR JUMPED THE SHARK ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO, SO THIS IS A BLATANT CASHGRAB!!!

Yeah, postponing The Good Dinosaur for a year to get the story right was such a cynical move by the studio. What a bunch of hacks.

Exactly! It probably started out as an interesting movie, but then they decided to make it more generic for the big bucks. Probably under influence by parent company Disney though. They did the exact same thing with Bolt.

You know what other films for which they scrapped their original stories and started over? Ratatouille, The Incredibles, the original Toy Story, Monster's Inc., and practically every movie they've made. But don't let that stop your hate.

this is cool, but I would like to see a sequel to a bugs life first. That movie deserves a sequel.

Pixar hasn't failed me yet with TOY STORY

and both Tom Hanks and Tim Allen were locked into a fourth movie even before TS3 came out, so I'm not surprised by this. I hope this new film lives up to the previous three, then all will be forgiven.

These arguments are kind of silly. If it was a cash grab, this would've already come out 2 or 3 years ago.

They weren't cash grabs, just mediocre to enjoyable movies. I've never seen Cars 2, but John Lasseter is super passionate about that world. He believed in both of those movies and felt they were special. Monster's University is a cute if slight movie that simply doesn't live up to the original. Its biggest downfall is that it leans too heavily on cliche. Just because something isn't perfect doesn't mean it wasn't made for the right reasons. Sometimes people just miss.

I'm a big Pixar fan, but this doesn't sit easy with me. Toy Story is one of the most perfect trilogies in the history of film, and adding to it at this point would only seem to tarnish that (similar to Indy 4). If it's not about the relationship between toys and children, then what is the point of having this romantic comedy be about toys other than the name recognition? Set it in the world of Cars or Monsters for that matter.

In that case, don't even name it Toy Story 4. Make it a whole new movie with new characters.

I would be fine with this being a standalone film considering that Toy Story 3 ended perfectly and wouldn't want a new film to ruin that.
