‘The Incredibles 2’ Moved Up to 2018, ‘Toy Story 4’ Pushed Back To 2019
Pixar is doing some shuffling with its schedule of upcoming films, and depending on which sequels you’ve been anticipating, this news will either be super exciting or seriously disappointing.
As it turns out, The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 are switching release dates. The sequel to The Incredibles has been moved up to June 15, 2018, despite originally being scheduled for release the following summer. This means the new film will release nearly 14 years after the original, as the first Incredibles was released in November 2004. Original director/writer Brad Bird will be returning to oversee the project.
Toy Story 4, meanwhile, has been pushed back to June 21, 2019, the original projected release date for The Incredibles 2. Not a whole lot is known about the fourth Toy Story film except that it’s a love story about Woody and Bo Peep, a tale inspired by the marriage of Pixar’s John Lasseter. Oh, and the script will be written by Rashida Jones and writing partner Will McCormack, both of whom wrote the criminally underrated Celeste and Jesse Forever. So the movie has that going for it already.
Personally, I’m more excited for The Incredibles 2, but I’ll be interested to see what kind of story develops for Toy Story 4. In a way, I’m worried Pixar is playing with fire, since Toy Story 3 was really the perfect ending for Andy’s toys. But I feel Pixar wouldn’t even agree to make this movie unless they had a great story in mind, so I trust in the team to deliver something that is at least on-par with what Toy Story 3 accomplished.
But what do you think about the release date switch between The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4? Sound off in the comments!
