Toy Story 4 might not continue the storyline of Toy Story 3, according to Pixar president Jim Morris. Toy Story 4: A Romantic Comedy In an interview with Disney Latino, Morris reportedly revealed that the highly anticipated continuation of the Toy Story franchise wouldn’t necessarily revolve around Andy’s old toys going on another wild adventure.

While many people still think it is a money grab, Pixar seems adamant that their next Toy Story movie will be different from the others, and that means changing up the story a little bit.
Speaking with Disney Latino earlier this week, Pixar president Jim Morris revealed that Toy Story 4 will break from the original trilogy of films and be a brand-new story within the universe (with all of the same characters).
“I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know if it will be continued […] It is not a continuation of the end of the story of ‘Toy Story 3,” Morris said.
He added that the focus of the story will shift from the relationship between the toys and their owner and will instead be a love story amongst the toy characters. This is a »

Pixar president Jim Morris revealed more information about the focus and status of the upcoming, fourth Toy Story film in an interview with Disney Latino's blog. Morris said that the movie, which was announced in November, is not a continuation of Toy Story 3 or "part of [the] trilogy" of past Toy Story films. Furthermore, Toy Story 4, will be "love story," Morris explained, adding that it won't be about the characters interacting with kids.

Back in November Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that John Lasseter would return to helm a fourth instalment of Pixar’s super successful Toy Story series. Little to no details were divulged except for the fact that Lasseter loves “these characters so much, they are like family to us…We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before.”
And now the first plot details have started to filter out.
Speaking to Disney Latino, studio president Jim Morris had some very interesting things to say about what direction Toy Story 4 will be taking. The following has been translated from Spanish to English:
“It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3. Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will not put much focus »

Work is well underway on Toy Story 4, a movie that Pixar surprisingly announced earlier this year. The movie is set to arrive in the summer of 2017, and it's going to be directed by John Lasseter who, of course, helmed the first and second Toy Story films.
Details on Toy Story 4 has thus far been in short supply, but in a chat with Disney Latino (picked up by Slashfilm), Pixar Animation Studios president Jim Morris has revealed that the new film will stand alone from the Toy Story trilogy. Appreciating that his comments have been translated from Spanish, Morris said that "I think this movie in not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story. It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3".

When the announcement was made that there would soon be a Toy Story 4 in production, many fans of the franchise expressed deep dismay at the perceived unnecessary gamble with the legacy of what might just be one of the most perfect trilogies ever to grace a cinema screen. Vocal dissenters argued that Toy Story 3 was an enviable ending that simply could not be bettered. Regardless, Toy Story 4 has continued its way to realization. But now, Pixar President Jim Morris has given some broad details to Disney Latino (translated by /Film).
“The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn, I do not know if [it] will be continued. Never begin a project with that in mind.
“It is not a continuation of the end of Toy Story 3. »

As much as I don't think we particularly need a new installment in Disney-Pixar's Toy Story franchise -- Toy Story 3 was honestly perfect, you guys, really -- come June 16, 2017 there will be one in theaters for all to see. And from the sounds of it, the story we see in Toy Story 4 won't simply be a continuation of the previous trilogy. The obvious way to extend the series, as many assumed -- and spoiler alert in case you haven't seen Toy Story 3 -- would have been to catch up with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang some time after Andy drops them off with their new owner Bonnie when he leaves for college. However, this time around, it seems the focus of the film won't be the interactions and relationships between the toy characters and their human counterparts. Rather, Pixar president Jim Morris tells Disney »

Do toys fall in love? That sounds like the most important question at the heart of Toy Story 4. Pixar studio president Jim Morris recently held a conference with Disney Latino, where he revealed some new information about the latest entry in the Toy Story Franchise. And he says that it won't be a continuation of Toy Story 3 and is not part of the original trilogy which kicked off in 1995 with Toy Story.
Toy Story 3 served as a great climax for the story of Woody and Buzz and their journey as toys. It sounds like Pixar doesn't want to tread on old territory with their new animated adventure Toy Story 4. While he doesn't go into too many specifics about the storyline or which characters will be at the center of it, Jim Morris does go onto call it a 'romantic comedy'. He explains:
"The third movie ended »
Films are rarely skin deep. Like skin, except instead of applying expensive moisturisers to reveal the hidden depths, you need to put your thinking cap on and consider that maybe Toy Story isn’t just a superior kid’s film. There were some old Vw adverts that claimed Pixar’s debut was a metaphor for sexual awakening, with Woody’s “limp and unresponsive” form superseded by the gleaming “ten inch toy” Buzz Lightyear who takes Bo Peep to infinity and beyond.
How about that, huh? Pretty far removed from their accepted narratives, there was also the reveal that Et is a story of a stag do gone wrong. They’re just a couple of the more goofy readings of popular movies, but it’s proof that you can read a lot more into films than what’s simply on the screen. And it’s not just about sex stuff, »

This doesn't surprise me in the least, but I personally don't believe it's a good idea. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting the Academy is considering a move back to only five Best Picture nominees after opening the field to ten nominees back in 2009 when then Academy president Sid Ganis said, "Having 10 Best Picture nominees is going to allow Academy voters to recognize and include some of the fantastic movies that often show up in the other Oscar categories, but have been squeezed out of the race for the top prize." The decision came shortly after films such as The Dark Knight and Wall-e did not receive Best Picture nominations at the 2009 Oscars. The THR report says a large portion of the Academy's governing board has been pushing for the change behind the scenes, arguing that having too many best picture nominees has watered down the prestige of a nomination and »

Sequels. A few years back, Pixar found themselves heavily involved in the sequels game. Toy Story 2 wasn.t the exception anymore. Cars begat Cars 2. Monsters Inc. gave way to Monsters University. A third and fourth Toy Story became realities. And now, Finding Nemo is getting a sequel. or, at least, a spinoff. Pixar.s summer release in 2016 will take audiences back into the water with everyone.s favorite forgetful fish. Finding Dory will reach theaters 12 years (!!) after 2003.s Finding Nemo introduced us to a nervous clown fish, his suffocated son, and the amnesic blue tang fish that helped them on their rescue mission. But what has changed between now and then? A lot, both on the screen, and off. Let.s dive in to Pixar.s latest sequel with our What We Know So Far guide to Pixar.s Finding Dory.

For every Disney project we see released, there are tons that never see the light of day. A new example for that list is an abandoned Toy Story video game that was going to be set in space.

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.
The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.
It would hardly have been a major upset if »
Mattel is joining the crowd of brands looking to get into children’s programming. The toy manufacturer’s preschool content division, Hit Entertainment, is developing a slate of original Thomas & Friends videos based on the popular brand Thomas the Tank Engine.
Hit Entertainment plans to bring 52, short-form new videos to the Thomas & Friends YouTube channel over the coming year. The “Thomas Around the World” shorts will feature Thomas the Tank leaving his home, the Island of Sodor, to visit new locations. The “Live Action Playroom Shorts” will bring Thomas to life in kids’ playrooms (much like Toy Story), and “Mr. Perkins’ Story Time” will have the titular engine driver reading Railway Series stories. Hit Entertainment will also re-release classic Thomas the Tank Engine songs with new CGI animation, as well as some comedy shorts.
“Exploration and experimentation are at the heart of our playful new Thomas & Friends content,” said Christopher Keenan, »

Ballet adds a surreal, creepy quality to many films and tv shows. Here are 12 of the most unsettling...
Ballet is not natural. Dancers perform exhausting routines with legs and feet turned out to bizarre angles, arms held just to the point where they really start to hurt (that’s when you know you’re doing it right), backs bending to angles of 90° and more, limbs held stock still while balancing on their toes, in bodies mathematically maintained in a state that contains absolutely not an ounce of fat but can sustain two or three hours of jumping and running around.
And then the female dancers add to all this by putting their entire weight on the points of their toes, feet bruising and bleeding, nails cracking, and the male »

While a lot of Pixar movies have a musical element to them, the famed animation studio has never made a full-on musical. It looks like that may be changing, though, as Oscar-winning singer/songwriter Randy Newman, who has composed 6 previous Pixar movie soundtracks along with the iconic Toy Story theme song 'You've Got a Friend in Me', has revealed that director Lee Unkrich's next project for the studio will be a musical. And it seems that project is the Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Movie.
The Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Project was announced way back in 2012, and was described as a 'wholly original' film for Pixar that would delve into the holiday of it's title. Since that time, we haven't heard too much about the storyline. Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Project does not have a proper title at this time, nor does it have a release date. »
Randy Newman was on Classic FM this weekend and there’s no way on Earth I would ever have known this if Film Divider hadn’t listened in and transcribed some of what he said. I’m always far too busy not being scared of Radio 3 to ever give Classic FM the time of day.
From what he said, it doesn’t seem entirely like Newman is on the best terms with Pixar. A terrible shame because their working relationship had been yielding some amazing results.
“I’m not so sure I don’t have a reputation for being a little trouble,” Newman said, adding “Lee Unkrich isn’t going to use me, I don’t think.”
Use him for what? For the studio’s first musical. That’s what Newman says in any case, though he gives no details.

To propel this saga that revolves around a boy and his fire-breathing companion, hundreds of computer animation artists used software that DreamWorks Animation built and employed for the first time. This system, called Apollo, integrates a range of processes — from modeling and animation to lighting and visual effects.
“We wanted to eliminate complexity from artists’ lives,” says Dwa chief technologist Lincoln Wallen. “In the past, a lot of their time was spent managing data and rifling through files. Now it’s more like using your smartphone. You don’t need to know where the data is; you just open an app and manipulate it.”
DreamWorks Animation engineers spent five years developing this approach, and they collaborated with animators to make the tools artist-friendly.
Among them was Fred Nilsson, »
