    Tom Hanks revealed that he believed Pixar was actively working on Toy Story 4, and although the studio hasn’t confirmed the comment, it doesn’t exactly seem out of line considering their current love affair with returning to characters of the past, the amount of money that was made on the last one, and a few other hints and things left unsaid.

    Director Lee Unkrich commented last year that they would try to find ways for the characters to stay alive (shorts were one method), and Tim Allen even signed a contract for a fourth movie.

    I hope they don't. I am huge fan of PIXAR and the Toy Story franchise but the last one was a fitting ending. I really hope they rethink this.

    I said the same thing when Toy Story 3 came out and yet they proved they could do it. That said I think they shouldn't do any more feature length movies. The short they did before Cars 2 was fantastic and I think that is the direction they need to go with this series.

    Really? They had an absolutely insane run of box office smash movies while being critically acclaimed. They finally slipped up an made an average movie and you think they should give it up and make shorts? I think I'll side with their track record and they'll be fine. Financially too I don't see anyway shorts could possibly match the money they make from the feature films either.

    Pixar has always been about the story and it seems like Toy Story has run its story telling course. Don't worry about them since they have a bunch of movies in the pipeline. Even their first critically bad movie is making a ton of cash. It is in fact ahead of the original Cars in terms of box office.

    Agreed, plus the cash they make from all the toys and other merchandise on those movies especially Cars has to be ridiculous. I hope they come out with more original movies instead of continuing a run of sequels.

    The short was great but my problem is not "if" they could do it. My problem is they had a great wrap-up. There is no reason to do anymore of them. It lessons the "finale" of that movie if they continue for me.

    Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 4′ Set to Play in Theaters in 2017

    http://variety.com/2014/film/news/john-lasseter-to-direct-toy-story-4-out-in-2017-1201349848/

    John Lasseter will return to direct Pixar Animation Studios’ “Toy Story 4″ that Disney will release on June 16, 2017.

    Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear.

    Walt Disney Co. chief Bob Iger made the project announcement to Wall Street analysts as he discussed the company’s fourth quarter and fiscal year results on Thursday.

    Iger gave few details of the fourth film in the franchise other than Lasseter’s return to the director’s chair. But Disney followed up the announcement, to add that Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste and Jesse Forever”) have joined the project as writers, while Pixar vet Galyn Susman (ABC’s “Toy Story OF Terror! and “Toy Story that Time Forgot”) will produce the toon.

    “Toy Story 4″ will open a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the “Toy Story” gang, Disney said, with Lasseter having come up with the idea for the fourth installment with Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, behind all three “Toy Story” films.

    The only way this movie could work is if Andy is married and has a kid of his own and he finds the toys and let's his son or daughter play with them.

    He doesn't own the toys anymore. The little girl does. They will probably have the story line follow her and her family.

    I know but if Andy is married, that little girl is grown up and maybe Andy buys the toys in a garage sale or something. Who knows? :)

    the last one made 800 million dollars.

    they will keep making these until they don't make money, especially considering the problems Pixar has apparently been having with their last couple movies (firing the Brave director mid movie, doing the same and moving The Good Dinosaur a full year back).

    Pixar wasn't apart of Brave I thought. It was one of Disney's first animated film without Pixar. Wasn't it. To tired to look it up.

    Disney's first animated film without Pixar was called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. ;)

    Actually, their first film after the Pixar merger that wasn't "Pixar" I believe was Tangled.
