Pixar Release Shift: ‘Toy Story 4’ delayed, more sequels on the way

Toy Story 1

Pixar is making a shift on a few upcoming movies and it looks like sequel fever is here to stay.

While sequels to Toy Story, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, and Cars had been announced in the past, it seems like a few of these titles would be getting new dates after an announcement by the studio on Thursday.

According to the release, Pixar would be shifting Toy Story 4 — which was to mark the release of director John Lasseter to the franchise — to June 15, 2018, pushing it a year back from its intended release. The old date was given to Cars 3, which will now come out on June 16, 2017.

Finding Dory, the Nemo sequel, is still set to be the studio’s solo 2016 release but it seems like we will be waiting even longer for The Incredibles 2, which is set to open on June 21, 2019. Writer/director Brad Bird has already confirmed it will be his next film and is working on the story now, even if we will have to wait nearly four years to see it.

The most concerning note of the entire news break was the lack of original films. Out of the six films that are on the current Pixar calendar, two are originals (this year’s The Good Dinosaur and 2017’s Coco), which confuses me because of how successful their original films have been in the past and especially this year with Inside Out. The latest film by Pixar has also been one of their more successful ones, especially based on its original nature, and has shown that people will flock to anything animated or with the Pixar logo on it.

Regardless, the studio will be trudging us through another Cars so buckle up (ha!). The next film from Disney/Pixar will be The Good Dinosaur, which opens on November 25.
