Toy Story 4 might be a romantic comedy separate from original trilogy

In a recent interview with Disney Latino, Pixar's president, Jim Morris discussed some of the earliest details about the upcoming Toy Story 4. According to Morris, the sequel to the original trilogy won't continue the story, ...

Toy Story 4 is confirmed, gets 2017 release date

With the Toy Story series remaining a big marketing juggernaut long after the trilogy officially ended in 2010, it was almost inevitable that we'd get another film (especially seeing as how we're getting more and more TV specials featuring Bonnie's toy gang). And before you cry out that it's some sort of cash in, I think they're finally doing this because they've got a good idea. 

Disney CEO Bob Iger announced Toy Story 4 will release June 16. 2017 with John Lasseter returning to direct, and Rashida Jones and Will McCormack co-writing the script. Also, most are expecting Tom Hanks and Tim Allen to return, but that has yet to be confirmed. Here's what Lasseter (with big wigs Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich all contributing to the story) had to say about the sequel: 

We love these characters so much; they are like family to us...We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee, and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.

Matt and I talked about this in length when news of Toy Story 4 first leaked, and I still believe there are more good Toy Stories as long as someone is willing to make them. Sure Toy Story 3 had a definitive end, but I'd rather think of that as an end to that particular arc. There's always room for more playtime.

Flixist Discusses: Should there be a Toy Story 4?  photo
Flixist Discusses: Should there be a Toy Story 4?
by Nick Valdez

When a rumor of a Colombian Toy Story 4 confirmation went up a few days ago, there was an odd amount of division between the Flixist editors. Some editors (me) were in favor of a Toy Story sequel, while other editors (Matthew Razak, who's also completely wrong) though Toy Story 3 ended so gracefully that it should be messed with. This divide between Matt and I eventually spurned on a deadly healthy argument between the two of us. 

Before it eventually devolved into name calling (me) and tantrums (again, me), we brought up some good points and decided to share them here with you all. Hopefully this starts a community wide debate on this subject. So without further delay, let's get it on!

Toy Story could have been called "Toyz in the Hood"

Review: Toy Story 3 photo
Review: Toy Story 3
by Andrew Kauz

When you're someone who historically hasn't been a fan of a particular series, it's difficult to find excitement for its third installment. When the original Toy Story came out, I was of the age where I found animated films to be totally uncool, and by the time the sequel was released I had lost interest in seeing either movie. While I eventually saw both, I was never hugely excited about watching them.

When Toy Story 3 came out, the story was no different. Still, with a group of guys in a theater in Hollywood I sat, watching an animated film in theaters for the first time in years. I wasn't entirely excited to be there, but within minutes I was in conversation with the past me, asking, "What was your problem?"
