TOY STORY 4, THE INCREDIBLES 2 Trade Release Dates

2015’s D23 Expo – Disney’s premiere convention – brought word of Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2, with the revelation that the next installment in Pixar’s beloved Toy Story franchise would be a love story between Woody (Tom Hanks) and the porcelain Bo Peep. John Lasseter (Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Cars) will return to the director’s chair, with Rashida Jones and Will McCormack – co-writers of romantic comedy Celeste & Jesse Forever – providing the screenplay. Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille)  will also return to helm the sequel to his 2005 superhero hit The Incredibles, though story details are currently unknown.

Toy Story 4
Previously slated for June 15th, 2018, Toy Story 4 has been pushed back a year and will now open on June 21st, 2019 – the date previously marked out for The Incredibles 2, which will now open a year earlier on Toy Story 4‘s former June 15th, 2018 release date. With Toy Story 3 seeing the end of Woody and Buzz’s (Tim Allen) time with owner Andy, Toy Story 4 will go in a new direction – with Pixar creatives Lasseter, Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E), Pete Docter (Monsters Inc, Up) and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3, Coco) returning to craft an all new, original story for our favorite toys.

The Incredibles 2
“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” Lasseter shared. “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.”

That same kind of creative spark drew Bird back to the super-populated world of The Incredibles. “I had a bunch of ideas that I wanted to put in The Incredibles, but they just didn’t fit. Certain ideas fit, but other things make you go, ‘This is great, but I’d have to give up two other things that matter more to me to get this other thing in,'” Bird noted. “So there were a pile of ideas left over from ‘The Incredibles,’ but it’s not a big thing. There were little scenes and things that I was interested in. I wanted to come up with sort of an over-arching idea that connected to the first film that went somewhere different. That’s the one that took a little more time.”
