'Toy Story 4' Won't Be a Direct Sequel

Just as Andy headed off to begin a new phase of life in "Toy Story 3," Pixar plans to take the hit animated franchise in a new direction with the fourth film.

Speaking with Disney Latino, Pixar President Jim Morris revealed "Toy Story 4" won't be a direct continuation of the previous films but will instead be a romantic comedy that moves away from the interaction between the toys and children.

"The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy," he said, suggesting it will be standalone story and not necessarily the beginning of a new trilogy. "Never begin a project with that in mind."

John Lasseter will direct the film from a script by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, based on a story by Lassetter and franchise veterans Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich.

"Toy Story 4" is set for release June 15, 2017.
