Disney News This Week: 'Toy Story 4' Announced, New 'Into the Woods' Trailer, 'Star Wars': Episode VII Gets a Title—'The Force Awakens'

By Cynthia Momdjian, The Walt Disney Company
Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with Toy Story, it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s "Toy Story 4," an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters. John Lasseter, director of the original "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2," will direct the film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the "Toy Story" gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films. Writing team Rashida Jones and Will McCormack joined the project, and Pixar veteran Galyn Susman is producing. The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.
