But won't confirm anything yet
Head of Pixar, John Lasseter, has been quizzed again on the mooted fourth Toy Story film.
Asked about the continuation of the Toy Story franchise on BBC Breakfast today (July 19), Lasseter smiled and laughed but failed to give any confirmation either way.
Responding to Tom Hanks‘ earlier comments that the fourth film was being “worked on”, Lasseter simply replied that he found the actor’s comments “interesting”.
Asked what he thought of the man who voices Woody letting the secret slip, Lasseter said, “I found that very interesting too. It was really interesting, he carried on talking.”
When pressed further he said simply, “We haven’t announced anything, so I can’t really talk about it,” before enthusiastically changing the subject saying, “But Cars 2 is such a good movie!”
A short film starring the Toy Story characters, entitled Hawaiian Vacation, will play at the beginning of the Cars sequel.
Next on the Pixar slate is a return to the world of Monsters Inc with Monsters University and the fairytale Brave, set in the highlands of Scotland.
Cars 2 is due for release in the UK this Friday, July 22.
