FILM: Toy Story 4 Isn’t a Continuation; Will be a Romantic Comedy

Via IGN:

 Toy Story 4 won’t continue the previous trilogy and will be pitched as a romantic comedy, rather than exploring the relationships between kids, their toys and growing up.


That’s according to Pixar studio president Jim Morris, who told Disney Latino (via Slashfilm) that there was no suggestion this would mark the beginning of a new trilogy, as that would depend on the director’s vision.

 “The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy,” he said. “I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know if will be continued. Never begin a project with that in mind.

“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. I think it will be a very good movie.”

For the first time it looks like Woody and Andy’s relationship is being put to bed in favour of focusing on the toys themselves, much like we’ve seen in the myriad specials and shorts. The script is apparently evolving and in its third table read. Morris also rejects the idea that Toy Story 4 came about because of desire for more money, saying instead Pixar simply had an “irresistible” idea.

As revealed when the movie was announced, the story for this entry was thought up by the original Toy Story writing team: John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich. Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (Celeste and Jesse Forever) have joined the project as writers, and Pixar veteran Galyn Susman (ABC’s Toy Story OF TERROR!) will produce.

Toy Story 4 is due to hit theaters in June, 2017.
