Walt Disney Pictures has dismissed reports that Toy Story 4 has been given the green light.
The rumours began on Monday (February 18) when a Colombian journalist tweeted that Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack had all signed up to reprise their regular voice roles. According to the tweet, Disney has slated the new Toy Story movie for a 2015 release.
However, a Disney representative has since told Buzzfeed that “nothing official” has been announced about Toy Story 4 and pledged to investigate the origins of the rumour.
Back in 2011, Hanks – aka the voice of Woody – hinted that a fourth Toy Story movie was on the cards. He said at the time: “I think they are trying to do another one. The spirit afoot is to make a fourth.”
The pixelated playthings were last seen in 2010’s Toy Story 3, which became the highest-grossing animated movie ever after taking over $1.063 billion (£660 million) at the box office worldwide. The first two Toy Story films came out in 1995 and 1999.
