The story for Toy Story 4 (2019) was created by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich. After they established a story outline for Toy Story 4 (2019), John Lasseter officially announced the project, saying, "Toy Story 3 (2010) ended Woody and Buzz's story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee, and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie - and I wanted to direct it myself."

In November 2018, Tom Hanks claimed that the ending was emotional and "a moment in history." He also added that he couldn't face the crew while recording his final lines because he got emotional with them. This came around 6 weeks after co-star Tim Allen said he couldn't get through the last few scenes because of how emotional they were.
