Good news! Josh Cooley, the director of Toy Story 4, has confirmed the movie’s release date. It will come in less than a year as previously expected.
“JUNE 21 2019”. That’s all Cooley wrote on his Twitter page. That was more than enough though.
Fans immediately jumped on it, Toy & Hobby Retailer reports: “I know how I’m spending my birthday June of 2019!” while another wrote: “Holy moly with casseroley! Have been a fan since a lloooonnngggg time! Can’t wait! #excited”.
As a result, the 4th installment in the franchise will come exactly a decade after the previous movie. Toy Story 3 was quite the success and brought over $1 billion at the box office.
Now Toy Story 4 will have an even bigger challenge. After such a long time, the fans are now very eager to see their favorite characters. So, the movie has to meet very big expectations.
As you can imagine, the movie will also come with a lot of new toys and merchandise. You can expect the first wave of Toy Story 4 toys to hit the stores in spring 2019. Of course, the bigger wave will be after the movie, if it’s successful.
As always, these dates are not guaranteed. Things can always change and the move can be delayed. Hopefully this won’t happen and Toy Story 4 will come out in time.
