"Toy Story 4" isn't out for another two years, but we've got our first idea of what it might look like. Speaking to Disney Latino, Pixar president Jim Morris said the new sequel will not really look like a traditional sequel at all.
"The third movie was over in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of [that] trilogy," Morris said (translation via Google). "We are putting together a very nice story. It is not a continuation of the end of the story of 'Toy Story 3.' Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will not make much focus on the interaction between the characters and children. I think it will be a very good movie."
That "Toy Story 4" will have a different slant isn't a total surprise. When Pixar announced plans for the film last year, director John Lasseter -- who directed the first two "Toy Story" films -- said he was most excited about the project's new direction.
"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," Lasseter said. "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."
Lasseter also brought on Rashida Jones and Will McCormack to co-write the "Toy Story 4" script. "They have such a great sense of character and originality," Lasseter said to the Los Angeles Times. "And I wanted to get a strong female voice in the writing of this."
A representative for Pixar was not immediately available for comment. "Toy Story 4" is out on July 16, 2017.
