The plot for the next installment of everyone’s favorite Pixar franchise has been confirmed.
Toy Story 4, will see cowboy Woody reunited with his love from the first two films Bo Peep; the film will focus on their love story. We’ve seen less of their relationship after the first two films so this will be refreshing to see.
Disney’s Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, confirmed the news at the Disney’s D23 conference “It’s something we’ve never done with Toy Story before. It’s a love story with Woody and – and this is news – Bo Peep”.
It was announced by Pixar earlier this year that Toy Story 4 would be a standalone film and that it would be separate from the trilogy. I for one am happy with that because Toy Story 3 ended so perfectly, so when Toy Story 4 was announced a part of me was happy with nostalgia, but a part of me was like why go and mess with something that had perfect closure, do we really need to open it up again.
Lasseter will direct and is joined by co-director Josh Cooley; with Will McCormack and Rashida Jones co-writing the script.
Toy Story 4, is released on July 14, 2017.
