Toy Story 4 Opens In 2017
Special Cameo Voices in Toy Story Four
Did you see Toy Story 3 and did you like it? I was a little disappointed and wondered what would happen to the toys in their new home and what would happen to their former owner, now an adult.
Many people liked it though, because it earned $1.1 Billion worldwide in first run showings.
At the same time, Rotten Tomatoes movie site showed that people liked Number Three less than they liked the first two installments of the trilogy in first runs, but Toy Story 3 still rated a 99% positive!
We will be seeing just what happens in Toy Story 4, set to be released on June 16, 2017. The concept for the film convinced the previous director, John Lasseter, to return.
Film experts feel that the new installment will likely win these awards:
- Best Animated Feature Oscar - Almost a sure thing, they say. Toy Story 3 won this and Best Song Oscars.
- Best Picture Oscar - Animation? Some experts believe it will win. Maybe, but not impossible.
Why is it seven years between the release of films Numbers Three and Four? Perhaps because the saga has gone on to Cable TV cartoons and even a musical adaptation.

National Toy Hall of Fame, 2014
On December 2, 2014 actor Keven McKidd gives voice to a Battlesaur called Reptillus Maximus, the leader of an army of dinosaur good guys.
He introduces a new line of action figures for the holidays that focus on wit, confidence, and culture.
The National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester NY has included action figures, most recently the sets of little green army soldiers. But along with the fighting men, the Hall of Fame inducted bottles of bubbles and Rubic's Cube.

Back in 1988, seven years before the first film starring Buzz Lightyear, Pixar made a film short through computer animation. They called it "Tin Toy." It was the story of a small tin soldier terrified by a gurgling baby. It led John Lasseter to create "Toy Story" in 1995, from the perspective of the toys.
MTV critics say they want to see a more substantial Buzz Lightyear. And they want to see more of Sid, the boy who rescues thrown-away toys.

Who Will Depart the Toy Story Saga?
Statistical people in Ireland have figured the odds ratio for the likelihood of a major character in the popular Toy Story films to be eliminated in Number Four. From least likely to most likely to go are the following results:
- Buzz Lightyear
- Sheriff Woody
- Mr Potato Head
- Slinky Dog
- Mrs Potato Head
- Ken and Barbie
Since the original toy owner in the first film of 1995, Andy, is an adult in the 2010 installment, perhaps a human being would be more likely than a toy to leave the saga. As of this writing, we do not know what year serves as the setting for the fourth installment.
"Bring Me The Arm of Buzz Lightyear" was one of the suggested titles for Toy Story.
Possible Cameo Voice Parts
Some professionals in the movie industry feel that the following people will provide cameo voice parts in Toy Story 4:
- Pharrell Williams
- Steven Spielberg
Less likely candidates to speak as toys or others are:
- Beyonce and Jay Z - However, they are more likely to appear than the POTUS.
A little less likely to be in the show:
- Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, and/or Michelle Obama. All these people are thought to be much more likely to appear than does the next group:
Least likely to perform:
- Barack Obama
- Mark Zuckerberg
How about Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Pratt as Star-lord? They could appear as toys, since Disney released action figures of them. We even have a Dancing Baby Groot figure for this Christmas!
Other possibilities include Disney-owned characters in Star Wars and The Muppets.
Dancing Baby Groot Action Figure
This toy from the film Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) is an action figure that is over one foot tall, standing in his own pot. He sways at the slightest touch in a winsome way. Overall, this toy contains a strong polystone statue sculpted in great detail from the original CGI reference files of Guardians of the Galaxy animators. Each toy is a Numbered Limited Edition statue with a Certificate Of Authenticity (COA), all packaged together in a colorful presentation box. Many viewers feel that Baby Groot is the best part of the movie.
