Woody & Buzz Are (Almost) Back! Disney & Pixar Announce 'Toy Story 4'

"Toy Story" is getting another sequel!

On Thursday, Disney and Pixar announced the fourth installment in the wildly popular animated movie series – "Toy Story 4."

John Lasseter, who directed the first two films, will direct the fourth. The story will feature beloved characters Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the gang.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” Lasseter said in a statement. “We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. ‘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. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee 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.”

Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich came up with the idea for the film.
