Toy Story’s Return Already Planned?

by  in Comic News, Movie News Comment

The third Toy Story hits theaters today, but there are already plans for another appearance in your local cinema. Should we be worried about overkill?

Even though Toy Story 3 provides closure for the series, it’s not the last you’ll see of the characters, according to director Lee Unkrich:

We know that people love the characters, love Woody and Buzz, and would hate to say good-bye to them completely. I don’t know that there would ever be a ‘[Toy Story] 4.’ We don’t have any plans for one — but we are trying to find ways to keep the characters alive. 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.

/Film points out that that means we’ll be seeing the characters again this time next year, if Cars 2 holds to its release date, but what’s so wrong with the characters going away forever? Whatever happened to quitting while you’re ahead?
