“Toy Story 4” is currently trending on Twitter, and there are a lot of “Toy Story 4 coming in 2015” headlines across the internet, but they all seem to have question marks after them. So what’s going on? NO ONE REALLY KNOWS, OBVIOUSLY! But beyond that, the report is that Toy Story 4 is happening, and that Disney Pixar has confirmed. Though the report is coming from sources in Colombia, which seems like an odd place for Disney to break the news.
Two Colombian news sources are reporting that Toy Story 4 has been made official with Pixar promising a 2015 release date and the return of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack.

So how did the Colombians get this news before us? My guess is that they were up all night doing cocaine. HIYO! I kid, I kid. Obvious jokes, am I right? Anyway, take this news with a grain of salt until it’s confirmed by Disney. They haven’t confirmed it, as of now. But given that Toy Story has that rare combination of drawing power, critical acclaim, and merchandising opportunities, the only way Disney wouldn’t make a fourth one, in 2015 or otherwise, is if they were allergic to money. And if Walt’s company has proved anything over the years, it’s that they’re not allergic to money. Jews, maybe, but not money.
