I just learned TS4 is under development. C'mon Disney/Pixar.

Look, sequels can be good. TS3 was very good. Cars 3 was actually much better than the first two.

But at after three, enough already. Find something new.

I'm sure that TS4 is being developed to help continue interest now that they have created TS Land in WDW. There are plenty of storylines they can come up with like the toys getting handed down to Andy's children!

I think they’ve been working on the 4th movie for awhile now. I remember hearing about it two years or so ago.

The question is, who cares?

Are we so intellectually lazy that we need Disney to beat the s#&t out of every good idea they’ve ever had by recycling their products into more of the same?

It seems that way. It’s as though all tv/movie makers are just retreading the same ideas. All the Disney movies are now having live action/CGI versions made, tv shows from the 90s are being resurrected, and so on...

You mean you're not all anxiously awaiting "Frozen 2"? It's supposed to be "more epic than ever"! :RpS_smile:

Toy Story 2: "OMG why would they make a sequel?? The original Toy Story was amazing! Why do they always have to make a sequel???"
Toy Story 3: "Ugh really? Toy Story 1 and 2 were perfect. They're going to ruin the legacy of those two masterpieces!!! NOOOOOO!!!"
Toy Story 4: "Stupid Disney is trying to cash in again. Toy Story 1-2-3 was a perfect trilogy! Why can't they just leave those three movies alone???"

Truth be told, they try to cash in with each new project. It’s just that once they strike upon a good idea, they keep or stall other original ideas from coming to fruition. Now I’d never try to argue that 1 or 2 were perfect. The “franchise” is based on a great premise, which was nicely realized in all three films, to be sure, and all three have moments of greatness. But it must be frustrating for the artists (and for some consumers, but not nearly enough, it seems) to have to crank out the same old same old and to attempt to keep it relevant. It’s the age-old art vs. commerce conundrum.

Now they're just becoming more and more about less and less.

DH heard that its supposed to be even sadder than 3. I don't know if I can emotionally handle that.

The teaser trailer is ... odd. And disturbing. I mean, the whole idea of toys having consciousness but having to pretend they don't with multiple copies of the same personality is the sort of thing that just makes you more uncomfortable the closer you examine it, so we all ( at least me) just accept the premise and don't dwell on it because there's no need and the Toy Story universe is great.

But the spork in the trailer, who has been turned into a toy and desperately screams into the camera that he shouldn't be a toy and doesn't belong there and tries to escape? Well, that just throws the issue right in your face. Like, was he granted consciousness out of nothing when some child drew a face on him? And does this cause him to endure a seeming existence of pure anxiety? Or do all small household items have consciousness, and he's disturbed because the essential nature of his being has been altered? What about all the paper that kids draw faces on? Are they all suffering from the same neuroses as the spork?

I don't want to think about these things, but the desperate spork who wants no part of being a toy is the only actual story element in the trailer. What else is there to think about? No. Based on this trailer, I want no part of this dark, tortured vision.

They have been working on it for years, animated movies can easily take 3-4 years to make.

I remember Rashida Jones saying in an interview the she was writing the movie and how excited she was. I just looked it up and she left the movie over a year ago, so that interview was at least two years ago.

Are we so intellectually lazy
Yes, but you knew that already. :RpS_smile:

Its not just pixar though.... I mean think about the insane amount of reboots going on across the board these days. I agree that I would prefer a new idea over reboots and dragging out other concepts. But I also agree on Monsters Inc. Id love to know what happens after/I thought it would have been a more natural progression than Monsters University was.

So you would’ve attached arms to Venus de Milo? :RpS_biggrin:
