Right on the heels of the release of Cars 2 is word that it looks like there just well be a Toy Story 4! Initially the producer of Toy Story – Darla K. Anderson – stated that there was no plan for a Toy Story 4. But really, could Pixar just let such a huge franchise and cash cow just whither away and not carry on? I think not. And there are three BIG clues that there will indeed be a Toy Story 4.
1) The first Toy Story made $1 Billion dollars at the box office. Yes, ONE BILLION DOLLARS. That’s a crazy amount of money for a cartoon. With results like that, you know the studio heads will be begging for another one.
2) The Toy Story short at the beginning of Cars 2. This just proves they are not done with the series. The Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation is an adorable look at those beloved toys and their quest on giving Barbie and Ken their dream vacation. It also features their new owner, the little girl, in the beginning of the clip– a good reminder of her character.
3) Tom Hanks spilled the beans! The voice of Woody was on the BBC’s Breakfast News and reportedly said that they are “working on ['Toy Story 4'] right now.” Oops! Way to let the cat out of the bag Tom! Bet you got a stern phone call from Pixar about that one.
Do you think that Pixar should do another Toy Story? Or do you think the “full circle” quality of the last film gives closure to the brand?
