A brand new Toy Story short film will play in front of Cars 2 theatrically, notes Lee Unkrich in a recent MSN Movies interview.
Today’s huge announcement was sparked by a common question for the TS3 director: Is there a possibility that Toy Story 4 will be produced one day?
With that said, the franchise will continue well into 2011 in other forms. "We have announced we’re going to do a short film in front of ‘Cars 2’ that uses the ‘Toy Story’ characters. We’re going to keep them alive; they’re not going away forever." says Unkrich. No title has been announced.
Earlier this year it was confirmed that vignettes based on the ‘Toy’ series were to be produced at Pixar Canada. Could the theatrical short preceding Cars 2 be the first we see from Toy Story Toons? I guess we’ll find out as we inch closer to Brad Lewis’ directorial debut on June 24th, 2011.
