It looks like Toy Story 3 will not be the last time we’ll see the characters on the big screen as director Lee Unkrich has revealed to MSN that Pixar’s short in front of Cars 2 will be a “Toy Story” one.
“…we know that people love the characters, love Woody and Buzz, and would hate to say good-bye to them completely,” Unkrich said. “I don’t know that there would ever be a ‘[Toy Story] 4.’ We don’t have any plans for one — but we are trying to find ways to keep the characters alive. We have announced we’re going to do a short film in front of ‘Cars 2’ that uses the ‘Toy Story’ characters. We’re going to keep them alive; they’re not going away forever.”
Cars 2 is scheduled to hit theaters in 3D and 2D theaters on June 24, 2011.
