‘Toy Story 4’ Won’t Be A Continuation Of ‘Toy Story 3’
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. It will, however, take place after the events of Toy Story 3.
“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 on the interaction between the characters and children,” Morris said.
From the beginning, Toy Story has revolved around Woody, Buzz and the gang of toys’ relationship with heir owner, the human Andy. But, it appears Toy Story 4 will focus more on relationships between the toys, not their feelings towards the humans in their lives. Morris added that Toy Story 3 gave the original trilogy such a wonderful ending, Pixar intends to create a whole new story for the characters so as not to upset that ending.
“The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy,” Morris admitted.
As for who would be the center couple in the possible ‘romantic comedy’ Toy Story flick, fans can only guess. Could it be Jessie the cowgirl and Buzz Lightyear? The two did spark up a romance in Toy Story 3. Or perhaps, Woody will get a new girlfriend to replace Bo Peep, who was absent from Toy Story 3.
Toy Story 4 will be directed by Pixar and Walt Disney Animations Studios chief creative officer John Lasseter, who directed the original Toy Story film, and is expected to hit theaters on June 16, 2017.
