The next installment of Toy Story will not be a direct sequel to the third film, and will instead focus on a love story.
Pixar President Jim Morris told Disney Latino’s blog that Toy Story 4 “is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3,” which sees Andy’s toys dropped off a little girl’s house for her to enjoy while he goes off to college. This time, Morris says, “It will be a romantic comedy. It will not focus much on the interaction between the characters and children.” With Tom Hanks as the voice of Woody, maybe Meg Ryan can sign on to recreate their rom-com magic in toy form.
The third film in the franchise grossed $1.1 billion, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Toy Story 4 is due to hit theaters June 16, 2017.
