Disney Developing a Huge Toy Story Themed Hotel - Concept Art

18 November 2014 9:32 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier this month we learned that Disney and Pixar we developing a Toy Story 4 film that will be released in 2017. It looks like Disney has a big reason to keep the Toy Story franchise alive, as they are currently planning to build a gigantic Toy Story themed hotel. Unfortunately for me and a lot of other fans out there, it's being built on the grounds at Shanghai Disneyland Resort, which is scheduled to open in 2016. I don't think I'll ever find myself in Shanghai, so this will most likely be a hotel I never visit, and that makes me sad.

The news comes from The Disney Insider Blog, who also offered a piece of concept art showing us how awesome the hotel is going to look.  As you can see, the exterior is based on the classic wallpaper from Andy's bedroom, and the classic Pixar ball is in the center of the entrance. »

I Want It Now: Cinema’s long-awaited sequels

12 November 2014 7:54 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Patience is a very important skillset for a film buff, as Hollywood often leaves fans waiting for more for years -- even decades.

Nearly twenty years after audiences were first introduced to the dim-witted duo of Harry and Lloyd, fans are finally getting a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. With Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey reprising their roles as the titular idiots and the Farrelly Bros.’ stepping behind the camera to direct Dumb and Dumber To, audiences will no doubt be chomping at the bit to take another bite out of a classic comedy gold.

Starting with the shortest wait and leading up to the longest, here’s a rundown of some of the longest-awaited sequels of all time.

 

American Reunion (2012) - 9 years

When we were first introduced to the pubescent pastry-procreating protagonists of American Pie, they had barely graduated high school. Fast-forward thirteen years, however, and they’re all grown up with jobs, »

Toy Story 4 Will Be A Love Story, But Between Who?

10 November 2014 5:36 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When word of Toy Story 4 hit the web last week, the reaction was fast, fierce, and decidedly divided. Many fans cheered for another chance to see Woody, Buzz, and the gang swing back into action in a new adventure. But others grumbled that Pixar had created a perfect trilogy, and that a fourth film would be an artless cash grab. Well, now we're getting a bit more dimension to what the celebrated animation studio has in store for Toy Story 4: a love story. The La Times talked with the people of Pixar to get a scoop on Toy Story 4, and among chatting with its director John Lasseter, they uncovered that the fourth installment of this toy-driven franchise will focus on a love story. We've also learned it will pick up right where Toy Story 3 left off, meaning with Woody, Buzz and the rest of Andy »

A fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise was announced on Thursday by Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger.

John Lasster, who directed the original Toy Story film in 1995 and its sequel, will be directing Toy Story 4. "John created Toy Story and directed the first two films, and it's great to have him back directing one of our most valuable properties," Iger said.

Lasseter revealed in a statement that the decision to make a fourth Toy Story film was made when he – along with Andrew Stanton (Wall-e) , Pete Doctor (Up) and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) – came up with a story worth another sequel. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Lasseter revealed that the film will pick up where Toy Story 3 ended and will be a love story.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” Lasseter said in the statement. »

7 November 2014 1:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the biggest stories to break this week was Disney's announcement yesterday that Toy Story 4 will be released in 2017, with Toy Story and Toy Story 2 director John Lasseter returning to helm this sequel. It will be the first film he's directed since 2011's Cars 2, which comes in addition to his duties of leading two animation studios, Walt Disney Animation and Disneytoons, along with serving as the principal creative adviser for Disney's theme park designers. The filmmaker recently spoke with The Los Angeles Times, revealing why he's coming back to direct this sequel.

New Details Revealed for Toy Story 4

7 November 2014 10:25 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When I jumped online this morning, the Internet was flooded with all kinds of fan speculation about what Pixar's recently announced Toy Story 4 would be about. One of them included the addition of The Avengers. We now have some new official details to report on the film, though, straight from the mouth of Disney's chief creative officer and Toy Story 4 director, John Lasseter.

In an interview with La Times, Lasseter revealed Toy Story 4 will be a love story and that it will start at the point where Toy Story 3 left off, when Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toy gang were given to a little girl named Bonnie. I'm sure the love story will be between two of the toy characters... but who? He doesn't give away any specifics, but he does talk about why they are moving forward with this fourth film in the franchise:

'Toy Story 4' Is Happening, John Lasseter To Direct

7 November 2014 8:32 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The greatest animated franchise of all time is getting another sequel. Everyone said Toy Story 3 would be the end of Woody and Buzz, but alas, here we are, announcing Toy Story 4. The company's chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed that John Lasseter, who directed the original, will helm the upcoming film.

Toy Story 4 will be written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, who previously penned and starred in Celeste and Jesse Forever. They're working from a story idea by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich! Pixar's Galyn Susman will produce.

Though it hasn't been confirmed yet, our assumption is that the whole gang, from Tom Hanks to Don Rickles to Joan Cusack will return to voice these beloved characters.

Toy Story 3 was a perfect ending to a beloved franchise. Yes, Disney is squeezing this one for more profit, but it's hard to stay mad about news like this. »

And then, there were four. It’s been quite the day for announcements from Disney, with word that Star Wars: Episode VII is actually titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens and now company chief Bob Iger has announced that Pixar will produce a new Toy Story outing for 2017, with studio animation boss John Lasseter back in the director’s chair.The news came from somewhat of a low-key source: Iger was making a conference call with financial analysts to discuss the company’s earnings, a report that has been boosted thanks to its prodigious film output from the likes of Marvel and Disney Animation.No details were announced for the film, but we do know that part of the big main Pixar brain trust – Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Lee Unkrich and Pete Docter  – came up with the idea and have handed script chores to Celeste & Jesse Forever duo Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. »

6 November 2014 9:24 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures have set a June 16th 2017 release date for a fourth film in the "Toy Story" franchise. Walt Disney Co. chief Bob Iger made the announcement to Wall Street analysts as he discussed the company's fourth quarter and fiscal year results on Thursday.

Pixar Cco and original "Toy Story" director John Lasseter is set to return to the helm, while Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Most surprising (and welcome) is that "Celeste and Jesse Forever" scribes Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are onboard as writers on the project.

Also onboard is Galyn Susman ("Toy Story of Terror," "Toy Story that Time Forgot") as producer in a film that is being described as more of a love story than the previous outings. In an official statement, Lasseter says:

6 November 2014 8:16 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced that Toy Story 4 is coming in June of 2017. We don't know much about the movie at this point other than it will be directed by Pixar's own John Lasseter, whose directorial credits include Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Cars and Cars 2. Beyond that, it's anyone's guess as to how it'll fit into where the story was left off in 2010's Toy Story 3 and which characters will be returning. The story for Toy Story 4 was cooked up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton (Wall-e), Pete Docter (Up), and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3). It'll be written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (Celeste and Jesse Forever). Here's what Lasseter had to say about the project: “We love these characters so much; they...

‘Toy Story 4′ in works for 2017, the Internet explodes

6 November 2014 5:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There are few things in pop culture that have a softer spot in ’90s kids hearts than Toy Story and its subsequent sequels. And after the reaction to the two-Oscar winning, Best Picture nominated Toy Story 3 was essentially, “Oh my God, that was a million times better than I would’ve ever expected and now I’m super sad, I mean didn’t you think the toys were going to get incinerated? How effed up would that have been?!?”, you can bet the Internet would just about explode if a fourth Toy Story were to be announced.

Well according to Deadline, Toy Story 4 is officially in the works at Disney and Pixar, with John Lasseter (director of Toy Story 1 and 2, but not 3) set to direct. The film is set for a June 16, 2017 release date, and Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (Jones of Parks and Recreation, and the writing pair »

When the credits rolled on Toy Story 3, we all secretly hoped Buzz, Woody and the gang's time wasn't done with, but with the that movie ending their story in the most perfect way possible, it looked very much like it was. But it also earned a $1 billion worldwide, and more than likely because of that, we can all jump for joy, because Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has revealed, during an investors conference call, that Toy Story 4 was indeed happening, and that John Lasseter, director of the original and the first sequel, will be again be sitting in the directors chair. There has been no official word yet, but is expected that Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and the rest of the voice cast are expected to return. Working from a story idea from some of Pixar's best (Lasseter, Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkirk, Up director Pete Docter, »

Toy Story 4 confirmed, John Lasseter directing

6 November 2014 4:12 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pixar has officially announced Toy Story 4 - and John Lasseter is back calling the shots. It lands in June 2017...

It's full circle for John Lasseter, as Disney/Pixar has announced that he's returning to the director's chair for Toy Story 4. Lasseter directed the first Toy Story and co-directed Toy Story 2. And whilst Toy Story 4 had been rumoured for some time, it's now been officially confirmed.

The official announcement confirms that the new film "opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the Toy Story gang".  The new story has come from John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, described not incorrectly as 'the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films'.

It's a bold move and a tall order to pick the story up for the pretty much perfect ending to Toy Story 3. Lasster did say that »

Toy Story 4 is a go! This is not a drill! Woody, Buzz and the rest will be back for another adventure.

Because who can forget these 13 Toy Story moments that left us weeping, either with joy or immense pain? We didn't forget. We will never forget: Toy Story 1.
