Disney’s (DIS) latest film in the popular Pixar franchise “Toy Story” will feature protagonist Woody finding love, according to an executive.
CNBC reported Friday that Disney’s Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter said that “Toy Story 4” would focus on the romance between cowboy Woody and Bo Beep, a doll. Woody, a sheriff toy in the movie, is voiced by actor Tom Hanks.
“It’s a love story with Woody and—and this is news—Bo Peep,” he said during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.” According to CNBC, the franchise has earned over $2 billion in box offices around the world.
“At Pixar and at Disney, we only make sequels if we come up with a story that’s as good or better than the original. That’s our rule,” Lasseter added. “We don’t do things just to print money.”
Sequels of “Finding Nemo” and “The Incredibles” are also apparently in the works. Disney purchased Pixar in 2006.
