Toy Story 3 brought Pixar‘s flagship series to an emotionally resonant and thematically sound conclusion, solidifying the the series’ place as a landmark in modern animation and filmmaking. So let’s just be totally honest here: Toy Story 4 can’t help but feel a little redundant. What else do these characters have to say?
A few new updates on the status of Toy Story 4 have arrived, confirming that this project is still very much in the works and racing toward its 2018 release date.

John Lasseter took the stage (again) during Pixar’s portion of the animation panel at the D23 Expo 2015 to talk about Toy Story 4, which has been revealed to be a love story between Woody and Bo Peep, inspired by Lasseter’s own relationship with his wife.
Lasseter called Toy Story 3 “a perfect story completion,” but the Pixar brain trust “made a pinky promise never to make another one unless they had a story that was worth it.” This idea came up in a meeting for a different movie, leading to Lasseter and Andrew Stanton privately working on this idea for a while.
