Just when you thought Pixar has closed the book on Toy Story with an emotional and very tearful farewell in the ending truly befitting a classic, they have shocked everyone by announcing Toy Story 4.
Pixar’s chief creative officer, John Lasseter, will be returning to direct Toy Story 4, and announced that the movie is scheduled for release on June 16, 2017. He also said that the new movie will pick up where Toy Story left off and will be a love story.
Many fans have already criticized Pixar for “ruining” Toy Story 3’s tearful ending with a new movie, however, Lasseter answered back and said
“A lot of people in the industry view us doing sequels as being for the business of it, but for us it’s pure passion. We only make sequels when we have a story that’s as good as or better than the original. We don’t just, because of the success of a film, automatically say we’re going to do a sequel and then figure out what we’re going to do”.
Lasseter directed the original 1995 classic which has revolutionized the animation industry. The idea for the fourth film originated when Lassiter held lunch with Pixar executives over at his office in Emeryville, California.
