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. Lee Unkrich directed 2010’s “Toy Story 3,” which grossed more than $1 billion worldwide and was the last cinematic adventure starring the voices of Tom Hanks as Woody and Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear. 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.
Official casting info and the release date for “Toy Story 4” are still to be announced.
