‘Toy Story 4’ gets a new writer, rumored to be delayed from 2019 release date

Disney-Pixar has hired Stephany Folsom as the screenwriter on Toy Story 4, which is set for release on June 21, 2019, but could slide back a year to ensure the product is perfect for their fanbase.

Folsom is filling the slot left vacant by Rashida Jones and writing partner Will McCormack in November.

Jones denied a published report that she had left over an unwanted advance from Pixar and Disney animation chief John Lasseter and said instead they left over “philosophical differences,” and asserted that their exit was over the fact that they believed women and people of color did not have “an equal creative voice” at Pixar.

Josh Cooley took over as the sole director in July as Lasseter stepped aside during the summer.

“We love these characters so much, they are like family to us. We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before,” Lasseter said when the film was delayed from 2018 to 2019.

The studio has to be putting a ton of pressure on Pixar due to their massive theme park rollout set for next year at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.

Toy Story movies have combined to gross nearly $2 billion worldwide. Toy Story 3 was released in 2010 and took in $1.06 billion worldwide box office.

Folsom made the Black List with the script 1969: A Space Odyssey Or: How Kubrick Learned To Stop Worrying And Land On The Moon about a publicist who convinces filmmaker Stanley Kubrick to work with NASA in order to fake the moon landing.

In December 2015, Hanks posted a video of his commute to the Pixar studio. “Back to Oakland! Pixar! Working on #ToyStory4, partners! Hanx.”

Patricia Arquette has been cast to play “a laid-back mom who’s described as a hippie.” Full casting announcement is here.
