According to a couple of tweets from his Twitter account @leeunkrich on March 10, Lee Unkrich revealed that he’ll be onto the next chapter of his journey with Pixar, at the back of an absolute masterpiece that is Toy Story 3.
This thread is dedicated to anything related to this obscure and vague project, from rumors to facts, from speculations to official announcements. Me personally, I’m delighted!
Tbh I have no clue. It can be a 2014 release, too, if Pete Docter’s next project is due in 2013. No idea at all what it will be, but I hope it’s an original feature, not a sequel.
Speaking of sequels, it seems like Unkrich will also not be majorly involved with Monsters Inc 2, meaning both original directors of the first Monsters Inc will not be returning. I hope it’s Bob Peterson at the helm for MI 2.
I agree, Lee showed that he was a very capable director. I really hope those two products will be ground-breaking original features in the Pixar way that we all came to love. Early words is that Docter’s idea is very ambitious and amazing. I’m pretty excited.
The one thing I’m a bit worried about is that we might have to wait till 2014 or 2015 for those features to come out. It will be a while. I’m really really curious to see if Disney/Pixar have something up their sleeves for 2013. I’m pretty sure that they will, because if they don’t, then they probably would’ve planned Monsters University for 2013 instead of cramming two in 2012.
Why don’t they just make some announcement already!!!
A bunch of years untill his next movie from the looks of things. Which is nice he’s got a long, long time to get some new ideas and can take his time with it The last thing I want is for any Pixar director to rush into their movies, but we all know that doesn’t happen.
Although this is much too far in the future to speculate, I’m interested in knowing what reference he’ll make to The Shining in this film. He had one in TS3, and as much as The Shining influenced him, I’m certain he’ll make another one in his original film
Hmm, this sounds interesting. I just hope it isn’t Toy Story 4. If anything, I hope its another original instead of going for another sequel heavy slate. I have a feeling well find out along with the 11/27/13 project next week at the D23 Expo.
Okay, bottom line for me: I doubt Toy Story 4 will actually happen, despite what John Lasseter and Tom Hanks may insist. Tom Hanks probably knows very little, John Lasseter wasn’t “caught out”, I think he was just suprised with the question and unsure what to say, and he changed to subject because Pixar are secretive. So until they announce anything, all the freaking out speculation is deaf ears on me. Sorry
I think Lee’s film is somewhere down the line . I’m intrigued to see what he’ll do!
Well, when I first herd Hanks saying that TS4 is in production I thought that he was just joking. I did think that it would possibly happen when Lasseter talked about the rumor. Like I said, TS4 shouldn’t happen and if it does I’ll probably lose faith in Pixar.
