Tom Hanks Says Another 'Toy Story' Apparently Already in the Works

Back when we initially heard about the Toy Story centric short that's currently playing in front of Cars 2, director Lee Unkrich, the man behind the touching Toy Story 3 had said that shorts like that were a way to keep characters like Woody and Buzz Lightyear around, but that Toy Story 4 seemed unlikely and no plans had been hatched for the sequel. Well, things may have changed a bit at Pixar Animation Studios as AICN learned from some of their readers in the United Kingdom that Tom Hanks recently appeared on BBC's "Breakfast Show" and said that another Toy Story sequel is apparently in the works right now. What?!
When asked about the possibility of a Toy Story 4, the charismatic Hanks said, "I think there will be, yeah. Yeah, yeah, they're working on it now. There you go." This seems like kind of a big deal to not have been announced by Pixar already, but if anyone would be on the right side of information it would be Tom Hanks, the voice of everyone's favorite cowboy Woody. Honestly though, Toy Story 3 had such a heart-warming conclusion that I'm not sure I would want to see another adventure with Andy's toys, no matter how good the story might sound.
Of course, if the demand from audiences is there, and people keep turning up for sequels like they did with Cars 2 this weekend, then Pixar may just become another part of the system with a slew of sequels. Personally, I'm far more interested in their original films rather than more sequels, but you know there's plenty of kids and parents who will turn up for more Toy Story. There's always a chance Tom Hanks is wrong, so we'll try to keep you updated. Would you see another Toy Story sequel?
