Pixar are working on 'Toy Story 4'
Tom Hanks: "The spirit afoot is to make a fourth"
Tom Hanks has revealed that Pixar are 'working on' a fourth Toy Story film right now. While on the promotional trail for his latest movie, Larry Crowne, questions turned to whether or not there would be another instalment for the beloved toys.
Hanks told radio station Magic 105.4, "I think they are trying to do another one. The spirit afoot is to make a fourth.
"Whatever is going on at Pixar headquarters is a mystery to me. I'll wait till they blow white smoke out of the chimney or whatever it is that says there's another Toy Story coming down the pipe."
Later speaking to the BBC, the double Oscar-winner was asked to confirm that there would be another entry in the franchise. He replied, "I think there will be, yeah. Yeah, yeah, think they’re working on it now. There you go."
The third Toy Story film grossed over $1 billion worldwide and became the biggest animated movie of all time.
The characters of Woody, Buzz and the gang will appear alongside Cars 2 in the short film Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation.
Tom Hanks can be seen in Larry Crowne as of Friday (July 1).
