John Lasseter Isn't Talking About 'Toy Story 4'

John Lasseter Isn't Talking About 'Toy Story 4'

Jul 19, 2011

John LasseterPixar's darling, Toy Story, is one of the highest grossing animated series of all time, and the third installment has already surpassed the billion dollar mark since it hit theaters last summer. It was a teary-eyed ending to the final film about a group of toys that come to life and brave the adventures of the great wide world (this time, a Daycare center) while their owner, Andy, prepares to leave for college. This is a film franchise that audiences grew up with, and although it was hard to say goodbye to Woody, Buzz and the gang, Toy Story 3 left us with fond feelings.

Recently, Tom Hanks -- the voice of the pull-string cowboy doll, Woody -- blabbed to the BBC during an interview about a possible fourth film. That same news crew spoke to Pixar's head honcho, John Lasseter, and popped the question again: will there be another Toy Story movie? 

Lasseter was tight-lipped about the possibilty of a new film, saying that he found Tom Hank's comments "interesting," while looking uncomfortable and trying to laugh/brush it off. Since the third film ended so perfectly, it's hard to think about how they'd reinsert those characters for a fourth go-round without it seeming like a total money-grabber.

Still, there are ways they could carry the story forward by including a narrative around Bonnie, or an entirely different group of toys and children altogether (those would be big shoes to fill, however). Peek at what Lasseter has to say in the video below, and let us know if you see the Toy Story franchise lasting for infinity and beyond.
