RUMOR: Disney Pixar Planning 2015 Release For ‘Toy Story 4,’ Tim Allen and Tom Hanks To Return


In an age where sequels are greenlit before official numbers are in for a film’s opening weekend, it may seem peculiar to some that Pixar have yet to speak of plans to continue their ever-popular Toy Story series. The third installment was one of the most successful animated films of all time, and it’s not like Disney to let one of their best-selling franchises go to pasture before their time. That said, the end of the last film pretty much said all there was to say about the adventures of Buzz and Woody, right?

Apparently not.

According to a Columbian news site known as Terra, Pixar has confirmed plans to release Toy Story 4 sometime in 2015. No further details are given regarding release plans or plot, but the article does mention that stars Tim Allen (Buzz), Tom Hanks (Woody), and Joan Cusack (Jessie) would reprise their roles.

Adding fuel to this rumor, Jorge Luis Balaguera, an entertainment coordinator for Radio Station RCN, recently tweeted:

For those needing some help from Google Translate:

“Disney announced that they are working on a new sequel to Toy Story, which could be released in 2015. Toy Story 3 was a huge success, bringing in over a billion dollars at the box office, and the story will resume in the new movie.”

As far as we can tell, Disney Pixar have not confirmed plans to continue the Toy Story franchise. We are currently reaching out to our contacts at these companies for further information, but for the time being it seems we’re left with only rumors and our imagination.

    Yes, I would love to hear that the Toy Story franchise will continue. Please note, however, that there are 2 events that I have special thoughts on if at least one of these occurs in Toy Story 4, and I won’t reveal them right now. They are almost the same thing, and that’s my only hint.
