7 Nov – After four long years since the last "Toy Story" movie was released, Walt Disney has finally announced that the fourth instalment in the hit franchise is definitely happening.
As announced by Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger, Pixar chief John Lasseter will be back to direct the upcoming animated movie, confirmed Deadline.
Lasseter was the man behind the first two "Toy Story" movies, and served as executive producer on "Toy Story 3" – the tear-jerker threequel that made more than USD1 billion worldwide, making it the first animated movie to do so.
No word on which direction the fourth movie is going, especially since the third movie had everyone thinking it was the last especially with the emotionally-charged farewell between Andy and his toys. Lasseter is, however, excited about the new script and says a fourth movie has to happen.
Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack and the rest of the cast might be returning to voice Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie respectively along with the rest of the gang.
"Toy Story 4" will be going 'To Infinity...and beyond!' in cinemas come 2017.
