Maybe some kind of reboot? I don't see how they'd manage to follow TS3 otherwise.

And yeah, I cried at that, too... but not as hard as I did at the opening montage in "Up".

Toy Story 4: Sid's Revenge!

All joking aside I think this is a terrible mistake.  Toy Story 1, 2, and 3 tell a wonderful story and needs nothing further.  At least not in a cinematic format.  Personally, I love many of the post-TS3 shorts they've done and wouldn't mind seeing a few more of those.

Also, agreed on Up.  The start of that movie is just crushing.

Toy Story was the greatest trilogy of all time.

Now... well, we get another one. I have no interest in seeing it. Pixar are starting to lose it.

Disney stole their mojo. Last few years Pixar has been getting worse, all the while Disney has made Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen and Big Hero 6.

The thing that made most of the early Pixar stuff work (aside from "Cars," which was a Disney movie in all but name) was that for as much work they put into animation, they didn't shirk the storytelling.* Now they're more focused on building franchises than they are on storytelling, it seems (though I think there's potential in "Inside Out" if they bother to do it right).

*while Disney, all too often, just half-assed both but still got by on a mix of marketing, name recognition, and sheer empty spectacle

I actually really enjoyed the first Cars movie though.  It's basically Doc Hollywood, but with cars.  I HATED Cars 2 which shifted the focus to Mater/Larry the Cable Guy.  The man is best taken in small doses.  Smaaaaaaaall doses.

I remember being glad I shelled out the extra money for 3D...since the glasses hid my tears :'(

Hell, when I saw Big Hero 6, there was a bunch of images from different Pixar movies and even one tiny image from that sequence after having not seen it in five years was a hit to the gut.

Toy Story 4: Sid's Revenge!

You mean Sid The Garbage Collector?

What's a more suitable villain for a bunch of toys than a garbage collector?  :-D

Exactly!  Having been scarred as a youth by the discovery that all toys are alive Sid spends hours and hours in therapy.  The only job he can get is that of a garbage collector.  Then he gets an idea.  He'll gather up all the broken and discarded toys and give them new purpose...  An army of revenge!

Well, this is a massive necro, but I felt that this thread needed rounding out.

I had all of the above misgivings and more. But I went to see Toy Story 4 on the weekend.

This film is more than worthy to join the first three. I didn't think it possible, but Toy Story has been enhanced by this film. If you're still refusing to see it, then you're missing out.

Hello All.
I and my wife went to see TS4 this past weekend.
I did tear up.  slightly.
I still say that TS3 finished the series best.
This movie just seems to bank on pure nostalgia and open a story line for a TS5.


but mostly, I'm blaming my emotions on a large dose of 'empty nest syndrome'.
I'm miss my little buddy (almost 21 now) giving his rally cry: "to infininy and EON!"
and I miss my princess (just turned 17) saying "YEE-haw Cowboy" in her impression of Jessie the Cowgirl.
