We’ve known for a while that Toy Story 4 is on the way and that Pixar will attempt to turn the 4th film into a love story but Director John Lasseter took to the stage at this weekend’s D23 to fill us in with a few more details.
“We have the old characters back and some great new characters we’ll tell you about in the future,” said Lasseter. “We’re so proud of Toy Story,” he continued, before talking up the sequels. And about the new one? “What we did not realise while we were making the films is that each of the movies is a different genre. And in Toy Story 4 it’s a genre we’ve never done in that world, a love story. It’s a love story between Woody and Bo Peep. Bo returns for Toy Story 4, as Woody and Buzz Lightyear head out into the world to find her. It’s very special and a very personal story for me, because it’s inspired by my wife, Nancy.”
Toy Story 4 is scheduled for July 14, 2017.
