It was the perfect ending to the story, wasn't it? Pixar should have left it be. I guess there was mo' money to be had by continuing with the franchise.

Disappointing, actually.  As Greg said, Three was a perfect ending.

I don't think I would take this as gospel.   The same rumors came out right after TS2, and it took 10 years to get a sequel.   Pixar has the next 3 years plotted out.   So, even if this does happen, it's WAY away, and might be a totally different concept.

I for one would love to see a 4th as the 3rd film was horrible. One of the worst Pixar films to date. It was nothing near to what the first two were. I would love to see Pixar get back on track and do another likened unto the first and second.

Like others, I think it might be better to leave it alone after three truly great movies. As far as I'm concerned, they can keep doing Toy Story shorts (like the one on Cars 2) forever though. With the shorts, the audience gets too revisit the characters and have fun with them but since it's a short, Pixar doesn't have to worry about hitting a fourth homerun in a row like they would if it was another feature.

There is no more story to tell, except, as Travis pointed out, in the form of the short films. I haven't seen Cars 2 and thus haven't seen the short that accompanies it, but if they want to continue the characters this way, there's plenty they can do with them. What Tom Hanks said, and how he said it, doesn't make it sound too definite to me: "I think there will be, yeah. Yeah, yeah, think they're working on it now. There you go." Keep in mind what it took to get parts 2 and 3. I still recall how 2 was almost a direct-to-video sequel, and 3 almost got made by someone else! And also keep in mind how many people were skeptical of those…until they saw them.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

Loved the third one and I agree it ended the series perfectly. Don't see the need for another one.

If they do this, my respect for Pixar is going to go down several more notches. Cars 2 was bad enough, but to crap on the legacy of a franchise that people actually liked is going to rub a lot of fans the wrong way. :f

I'm kind of perplexed to see such a negative reaction to a potential sequel to a film that already has two of them, not to mention that Toy Story is probably the best-rated series of all time--the lowest score any of them has on Rotten Tomatoes is 99%.

Can you think of a better ending to the series than the third film? I was worried for years at the prospect of a third Toy Story because I didn't want to see the series sullied, and they managed to dodge a bullet with the third...so why risk that again? It's greed, nothing more.

Harsh words, but there is some truth to them. While I wouldn't call TS3 one of the worst Pixar films to date (that would be Up!), I thought I was the only one one who didn't find TS3 as great as many rave reviews said. Good, but ultimately a bit too sappy compared to the first two, which were great. And, what more story is there left? A good, but not perfect, ending. And what's up with all these sequels? Pixar became great because of all of their new ideas, not because of their sequels, were all the original thinkers lost somehow? There must be lots of cool, funny, interesting stories left that are not sequels, c'mon guys, I know you can :)!

Every Pixar movie except for Cars is rated above 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, and the first two Toy Story movies, in particular, both have perfect 100% ratings. With Toy Story 3, Pixar simply lived up to their usual high standard--how is that "dodging a bullet?" Toy Story is probably the best movie series in history (has any other franchise scored 99% or better with every movie). I don't see any "risk" here.

Has it that any different from Toy Story 2 or Toy Strory 3 or virtually every other movie ever made though? I love Pixar's movies but they have to deal with business realities just like anyone who is backed by a studio.

Pixar was dealing fine with business realities before they were bought out by a bigger studio. (So much so, that it was plain to everyone that the bigger studio bought them not to rescue them - but to partake of their success.)

Yes, they are harsh words. I have never been let down by a film more so than TS3. I was so excited to see it coming, so excited by the trailers and than so pissed I wasted good money and time watching it. To me, it is Pixar's worst film to date. Of course, Wall-E is a close runner up.

I don't think a TS4 is necessarily a bad thing. Yes, the first three comprise a great trilogy, but a fourth film might or might not add to it. There's no way to know until the film is released. I also think Cars 2 will be seen more positively as time goes by, despite being a very commercial effort.

The trendy thing these days is not to think of it as simply the fourth movie in the series, but the start of a second "trilogy". So they're probably planning for movies five and six, as well. Isn't that all Hollywood does these days, plan trilogies? Every film that comes out is the start of a trilogy, every third film "wraps up" the trilogy.
