The toys are back in town.

Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the gang from the beloved Pixar/Disney “Toy Story” franchise will be back on the big screen for a fourth animated installment. Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the news Thursday.

“Toy Story 4” also sees the return of director John Lasseter, who oversaw the first film in 1995.

The two actors reprised their roles for the TV special “Toy Story of Terror” in 2013 and will again for “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” which airs Dec. 2 on ABC.
