Toy Story when it hit the cinemas back in 1996 was revolutionary movie as it was one the first feature length film to use computer generated graphics . Thanks to its success and legacy, animated films we see on the silver screen today are mostly computer generated and 3 dimensional not hand drawn like the old . We have Toy Story to thank for that. Not only was it fantastic looking movie at the time it was a movie packed with great characters as it introduced the world to Woody , Buzz Lightyear and a plethora of memorable characters and it was also blessed with a great story which makes the movie a timeless. The movie did well enough to gather 2 sequels in the guise of Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. After the tear inducing ending of Toy Story 3, I believed that Disney Pixar will no longer visit the franchise as it rounded off the story in a perfect way. Disney and Pixar still returned to this world from time to time with endearing animated shorts like Toy Story Of Terror and Toy Story That Time Forgot . But with great success comes sequels and Disney/Pixar announced that they will indeed make a 4th Toy Story movie simply titled Toy Story 4 with John Lasseter , the director of the first two films taking the helm.
We don’t know much about the film at the moment but we do know that the movie will revolve around Woody and Buzz going on an epic adventure to find Woody’s love interest Bo Peep who was absent in the Toy Story 3. From that short plot summary I have the feeling that the movie will take the form of a love story and will be more personal than the other movies have been up to date. Other than that Disney/Pixar initially had plans for the movie to be released on June 16, 2017 however they have pushed the movie back to the summer of 2019 to allow Cars 3 take its first release date and the incredibles 2 to take its second release date. Disney/Pixar have been on a rampage with sequel productions lately . Other than Toy Story, we have already seen a follow up to Cars (Cars 2), Monsters Inc. (Monsters University) and Finding Nemo ( Finding Dory). Other than Cars most of the sequels have received decent to very positive reviews. The Toy Story trilogy is without a doubt one of the best trilogies we have seen in this industry and I can’t imagine Toy Story 4 being anything less than stellar. Toy Story 4 is set to be released on June 21 , 2019.
