Toy Story 4 is not going to follow on from Toy Story 3. WHAT?

Just wait until you hear what genre it’s going to be.

The Toy Story 4 movie isn’t expected to hit screens for another two years, but there has been an unexpected twist in the movie’s development that means we have to talk about it now.

When there was first word of a number 4 being added to the series, many people said they didn’t want it because the third movie had been a perfect, rounded finish to the trilogy.

But now we’ve found out that Toy Story 4 isn’t going to ruin that, it isn’t going to interrupt the perfectly tied up tale of the toys, it’s going to do something much worse.

We're scared too.

In an interview with Disney Latino, Pixar President Jim Morris said that the next film would only have slight ties to the original three movies starring Woodie and Buzz Lightyear. (We're wondering if Andy will even get a gig). The producer said that he agreed that the third movie completed the trilogy so perfectly that this fourth movie wouldn't be a part of the initial narrative.

"We are putting together a very nice story. It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3," he told the Latino publication.

Jim then revealed the new genre of the next film in.


"It will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will not make much focus on the interaction between characters and children. I think it will be a very good movie," he told Disney Latino.

If we'd been listening more closely to the man who directed the first two Toy Story films, John Lasseter last year this may not have come as such a big surprise. John said that he was really excited about the new direction the Toy Story project was going to take.

Yes, a woman's voice.

He told Huffington Post that, "Toy Story 3 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 [Stanton], Pete [Docter], Lee [Unkrich] 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."

Apparently the Toy Story 4 script is very original and will have a strong female voice behind it.

They're planning to release the movie on July 16, 2017 - so over two years away, but now we kind of wish it was tomorrow. We want to know how the movie is going to be so different, yet so good.

C'mon Pixar get a move on please.

What do you think, should they make a Toy Story 4?
