DISNEY SAYS 'TOY STORY 4' COMING IN 2017

Ready for more Toy Story?

Well, ready or not, we're getting another edition of the beloved Disney-Pixar franchise that'll follow the adventures of Woody, Buzz and the gang: Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger announced this week that Toy Story 4 is in the works and slated for a June 2017 release.

Our first thought: What's left to tell in a fourth movie? Didn't Toy Story 3have a practically perfect ending, with that emotionally charged passing of the toys from our human hero Andy to that little girl down the street?

A masterful way to end one of the most popular trilogies of all time. (Toy Story 3 became the highest grossing animated-film of all time when it came out in 2010; it was just beaten by Frozen.) Can another movie live up to that?

Good news is we're in capable hands: Pixar genius John Lasseter, who helmed the first two installments, is directing Toy Story 4, and the story comes from Lasseter, Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo), Pete Docter (Up and Monsters Inc.) and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3).

Interestingly, actor Rashida Jones, of The Office and Parks and Recreation, and her screenwriting partner Will McCormack are also on board as writers.
