Are you ready for Toy Story 4?

Did you cry? Did you sit in the cinema and sob your heart out with the best of them? Months later did you finally accept closure and watch the film at home, marvelling in its amazing special effects, wondrous screenplay and in the way it managed so successfully to pull on those nostalgic heart strings?

Well, you may just be in for a bit of a shocker. 

Sure we've seen 'In Development' titles fleet on and off the infamous IMDb website - but where Pixar is concerned we can't help but ignore the facts. Just as Monsters Inc. 2 was announced on the site a year before Monsters University was officially announced, it's very hard to ignore the recent addition of Toy Story 4 set to hit our screens in 2015.

And if IMDb isn't enough to go on, Sheriff Woody himself, Tom Hanks, recently hinted that the team at Pixar were working on the title in an interview with the BBC;
  “I think there will be yeah. Yeah, yeah. I think they’re working on it now. There you go.”

But what do we think of the news? Wasn't Toy Story 3 the best way to go? Didn't many of us accept that that was the end of the story, the end of Andy's journey with his toys? Is this just another attempt at making as much money as possible out of a franchise? Isn't it time to let go and leave this amazing childhood adventure on the incredibly high note that Toy Story 3 gave us?

We'll see how this one develops, but one thing's for sure, its going to have to be a pretty impressive production to blow the socks off TS3. The BDT Team can't even begin to imagine it. 

If you can't wait until 2015, make sure you head to the cinema next weekend to view Cars 2. The sequel of 2006 success, Cars, will follow a Pixar Toy Story Short 'Hawaiian Vacation'. Enjoy!
