Disney sets ‘Toy Story 4’ for 2019 release date

Disney has made it official: the new Toy Story film is coming next summer.

The Toy Story 4 film will officially arrive in theaters on June 21, 2019, made official on Toy Story Facebook page.

Josh Cooley (Inside Out), who is directing the animated film, announced the news with a simply tweeted photo of the number 4 and the date June 21, 2019.

Rashida Jones and her writing partner Will McCormack were originally penning the script, but they departed from the project due to “creative and philosophical differences” with the studio. Pixar replaced them with Stephany Folsom, who actually worked on Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok.

The rumors were that the film was originally pitched as a romantic comedy/love story with Woody and Bo Peep. Most fans seem to be content with the heartwarming ending of Toy Story 3 with Andy passing on the toys to Bonnie, but it’s understandable why Disney and Pixar wouldn’t want to end one of their most successful franchises… and profitable.

Incredibly profitable.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the Parks and Recreation alum, McCormack explains, “There is so much talent at Pixar, and we remain enormous fans of their films. However, it is also a culture where women and people of color do not have an equal creative voice.”

Along with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen returning as Woody and Buzz Lightyear respectively, other returning actors include Joan Cusack (Jessie), Kristen Schaal (Trixie), Bonnie Hunt (Dolly), Blake Clark (Slinky Dog), and Jeff Garlin (Buttercup). Randy Newman is also returning to compose the soundtrack.
