So there I was, listening to The Walt Disney Company’s Q4 and fiscal year 2014 earnings conference call when amid all of the talk about numbers and “franchises” (which, I believe, is the favorite word among the senior business leaders at Disney), comes a surprise announcement from Disney CEO Bob Iger that Toy Story 4 is on its way from Pixar Animation Studios on June 16th, 2017 and that it will be directed by none other than John Lasseter himself. I immediately sent a text to our fearless editor-in-chief Marc Vibbert and then tried to sort it all out.
The creative team behind Pixar’s new TV special Toy Story That Time Forgot held a panel presentation and discussion at San Diego Comic-Con recently. Lots of cool info was revealed at the panel, including character designs and bios, as well as the special’s screening date, which will be December 2nd on ABC.
Pixar fans at San Diego Comic-Con this week are in for a treat: Pixar and ABC are giving away posters for the upcoming TV special Toy Story That Time Forgot at their Comic-Con panel as well at a special autograph session. The poster was designed by comic artist/ legend Mike Mignola and it’s just all sorts of cool.
