Toy Story 4 will be in theaters June 16, 2017 and fans are incredibly excited. Or mad. You see, Toy Story 3 had such a perfect, beautiful ending that many fans though the franchise was over and should never be touched again. A perfect trilogy. Series co-creator, and director of Toy Story 4 John Lasseter, agrees with you.
“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,” he said in a press release. “But when Andrew [Stanton], Pete [Docter], Lee [Unkrich, director of TS3], 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.”
So what was this amazing, groundbreaking, wow idea that made Pixar try to top one of the highest grossing and most critically acclaimed animated films of all time? We don’t know (though Lasseter did tease it’s a love story in another interview) but we’re going to try and figure out.
We took to Twitter to ask you, the /Film readers, for your ideas. Oddly enough lots of them fell into similar categories. For example, many of you felt the film would have something to do with new technology. The Toy Story films have usually ignored that. Or maybe something to do with Disney synergy, bringing in Marvel or Star Wars characters.
Nevertheless, the ideas were plentiful and, below, we grabbed a whole bunch of Toy Story 4 plot pitches for you to check out. Read More »

UPDATE: We’ve also learned some new info including who helped break the story, and the fact Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are writing the script. There’s also a quote from Lasseter.

The Star Wars Twitter has revealed the official title of Star Wars Episode VII. It’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There’s no “Episode VII” in this title treatment, but that doesn’t mean the naming convention is gone. (You don’t call it “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” right?) So for right now, the film is Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. It opens December 18, 2015. Read more about The Force Awakens below. Read More »
Marvel played it super cool when a bootleg copy of the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer hit online. The official Twitter page joked about HYDRA being responsible for the leak, and hours later the official version was up, days ahead of schedule. They even released a new version the following week on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which was where the initial version was supposed to premiere. Classy all around.
But, behind the scenes, they’re out for blood. A new report says they’re seeking legal action against the person or persons who first leaked the trailer, which quickly went viral and became the #1 trend on Twitter. Below, read more about the search. Additionally, see how the How It Should Have Ended crew think the trailer should have ended. Read More »

There’s plenty of singing to be found here — and lots more plot points as well. Finally, we know exactly why all of these different fairy tales come to cross paths, and a bit more about what happens when they do.
At the center of the story are the Baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), who want the witch (Meryl Streep) to lift a curse so they can have a child. She sends them on a journey to procure several ingredients: “the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold.” Watch the new Into the Woods trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Star Wars Episode VII officially finished filming over the weekend. We know this both because of the note J.J. Abrams gave to crew members, and the photos and videos that appeared online from what looked to be a massive after-party. Among the attendees at the party was everyone’s favorite astromech droid, R2-D2.
R2 was the first official cast member revealed from the film so it’s kind of fitting he’s also the first we get to see in all his Episode VII glory.
