Toy Story 4 has gotten an official release date of June 21st, 2019.
The most recent film in the series, Toy Story 3, was released in 2010. The fourth installment kept getting pushed back due to scheduling problems with films such as The Incredibles 2 taking priority.
The film was set to be directed by John Lasseter, with Rashida Jones and Will McCormack screenwriting. Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich came up with the idea for the film. Lasseter has since left his role and is instead serving as an executive producer. Rashida Jones and Will McCormack have also left the project, originally thought to have left due to “unwanted advances” by Lasseter towards Jones. Jones denied the report and instead said it was due to “philosophical differences.” However, Jones did say Pixar is a studio with “a culture where women and people of color do not have an equal creative voice.”
Josh Cooley is now set to direct, with co-director Jonas Rivera, and with the screenplay being written by Stephany Folsom.
The release date confirmation came from Cooley’s twitter:
The official Toy Story Facebook page also shared a similar picture with the same date, further confirming the release:
The third and most recent installment in the series was incredibly well-received, with an emotional ending that really wrapped up the series. As more information comes out about the fourth installment, many fans are likely to be angry to see them continuing, even after the natural conclusion in Toy Story 3. What do you think?
